Molecular Dynamics Simulations of CO2/Water/Quartz Interfacial Properties: Impact of CO2 Dissolution in Water.


The safe trapping of carbon dioxide (CO2) in deep saline aquifers is one of the major concerns of CO2 sequestration. The amount of capillary trapping is dominated by the capillary pressure of water and CO2 inside the reservoir, which in turn is controlled by the interfacial tension (IFT) and the contact angle (CA) of CO2/water/rock systems. The measurement… (More)
