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 ...
NEXAFS Spectroscopy of Condensed N-alkanes
The carbon 1s Near-Edge X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (NEXAFS) spectra of alkanes vary with chain length, substitution, and phase change. For short gaseous alkanes, the carbon 1s NEXAFS spectra of alkanes are dominated ...
