Reactions, Adsorption and Diffusion in FCC Catalysts
The objective of this MS thesis is to study the reactions, adsorption and diffusion in FCC catalysts. The effects of different parameters on catalytic cracking are studied. Three main cases are considered: isothermal ...
Modeling Adsorption Data of Hydrocarbons on 13X Zeolite using the Gaussian Adsorption Isotherm Model
Subcritical and supercritical adsorption data available in the literature for alkanes, alkenes and aromatics on 13X zeolite are correlated using the Gaussian adsorption model. This model is specified by three parameters: ...
Dynamics of Chemotherapeutic Drug Release from Liposomes Using Low-Frequency Ultrasound
This thesis focuses on the study of liposomes; nanoparticles that can act as anticancer drug carriers, in combination with ultrasound applied as a drug trigger, with the objective of reducing the side effects caused by ...
Model Development, Application and Optimization of Chlorination Breakpoint in Wastewater Treatment
Chlorination in wastewater treatment is regarded as a complicated process due to its ammonia and nitrite content. Chlorine added to such systems reacts with ammonia undergoing episodes of complex reactions, resulting in ...
Bingham Fluid Flow in the Entrance Region of a Pipe
The isothermal laminar flow of a Bingham fluid in the entrance region of a circular pipe has been studied previously by many authors using different approaches. As current research stands, the momentum integral approach ...
Zirconium Phosphate/Ionic Liquid Proton Conductors for High Temperature Fuel Cell Applications
High temperature operation ( 120 °C) is preferred in proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells. It enhances the electrode kinetics, improves the catalyst tolerance for impurities and allows the use of lower cost fuels ...
