Self-Assembling Behavior in Decane Solution of Potential Wax Crystal Nucleators Based on Poly(co-olefins)

Abstract

The control of the precipitation and gelation of long chain paraffins from oil remains an enduring technological challenge regarding the processing and recovery of refined fuels and waxy crudes. Wax crystal modifiers based on polyethylene-poly(ethylene-propylene) (PE-PEP) diblock copolymers function as efficient nucleators for wax crystals in middle… (More)
