Writing in the journal Energies, a team of researchers from China have published a paper investigating the synthesis of graphene oxide doped polyacrylamide gels. The research has potential benefits for the petrochemical industry.
Ashalcha oilfield in Tatarstan is one of the famous sites to investigate the extractions of heavy oils. Specifically, the In-Situ Combustion Lab in Kazan Federal University has been operating there for a few years.
POSTECH researchers have unraveled a potential new zeolite expected to be a milestone for the oil refining and petrochemical industries.
Poorly soluble, viscous, and often highly contaminated– determining the water content in lubricants, hydraulic oils, and other petrochemical samples can be a messy business.
Recently in Russia there has been a significant increase in the share of hard-to-recover oil reserves - these are high-viscosity hydrocarbons or reserves in low-permeability reservoirs.
A Korean research team has developed a key technology for the mass-production of bio-aviation fuels.
A study by chemists at the Florida State University-headquartered National High Magnetic Field Laboratory shows that asphalt binder, when exposed to sun and water, leaches thousands of potentially toxic compounds into the environment. The study was published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology
A group of Japanese scientists has developed an ultrastable, selective catalyst to dehydrogenate propane - an essential process to produce the key petrochemical substance of propylene - without deactivation, even at temperatures of more than 600 °C.
Sphere Fluidics, a company commercializing single cell analysis systems underpinned by its patented picodroplet technology, today announced investment in the production and supply of its proprietary biocompatible surfactant, Pico-Surf™, for reliable and highly stable droplet generation and processing.
Ethylene is a part of numerous products people use daily, ranging from soda bottles to polyester clothing.
