X-ray microscopy of hydrocarbon-clay interactions
One of the critical challenges in the Canadian oil sand industry is improving processes used to separate bitumen from oil sands and to remove clay particulates from produced oil. The fine clay particles are believed to ...
Galvanic Synthesis and In Situ Speciation of Methane Oxidation Catalysts
The focus of this thesis is the methane oxidation reaction, catalyzed by Pd nanoparticles on a metal oxide support. This thesis presents a synthesis strategy for dispersing Pd catalysts on metal oxide supports and in situ ...
