We have extended our recently reported method for determining the surface area of single microporous particles, Dudek et al., 1989 using an electrodynamic chamber (EDC) by increasing the operating pressures from 1 at to 25 at. The value of total surface area is determined from adsorption measurements of CO₂ assuming monolayer adsorption. Measurements of CO₂ desorption were also carried out to yield a point to point difference from the adsorption measurements of about 1%. Adsorption-desorption cycles were carried out for 10 particles to yield a scatter of less than 5% in the measured value for saturation adsorption. The major advantage of using high pressure measurements for evaluating the saturation value for CO₂ adsorption is the improved accuracy of the extrapolation procedure. Previous measurements with the EDC at atmospheric pressure, Dudek, et al., 1989, yielded values for the surface area for similar particles of comparable value with a relative error of about 15%. The results of the high pressure measurements are however bounded with an error of about 3%. Also, the equilibrium adsorption-desorption coefficient was found with a high accuracy, whereas from atmospheric measurements it was not practical to obtain an accurate value

An innovative catalyst system for slurry-phase Fischer-Tropsch synthesis Cobalt plus a water-gas-shift catalyst. Final technical report ( )
2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The feasibility of using a mechanical mixture of a Co/MgO/SiO₂ Fischer-Tropsch catalyst and a Cu-ZnO/Al₂O₃ water-gas-shift (WGS) catalyst for hydrocarbon synthesis in a slurry reactor has been established. Such a mixture can combine the superior product distribution from cobalt with the high activity for the WGS reaction characteristic of iron. Weight ratios of Co/MgO/SiO₂ to Cu-ZnO/Al₂O₃ of 0.27 and 0.51 for the two catalysts were studied at 240°C, 0.79 MPa, and in situ H₂/CO ratios between 0.8 and 3.0. Each catalyst mixture showed stable Fischer-Tropsch activity for about 400 hours-on-stream at a level comparable to the cobalt catalyst operating alone. The Cu-ZnO/Al₂O₃ catalyst exhibited a very slow loss of activity under these conditions, but when operated alone it was stable in a slurry reactor at 200--220°C, 0.79--1.48 MPa, and H₂/CO in situ ratios between 1.0 and 2.0. The presence of the water-gas-shift catalyst did not affect the long-term stability of the primary Fischer-Tropsch selectivity, but did increase the extent of secondary reactions, such as l-alkene hydrogenation and isomerization
On the motion through a viscous fluid of a spherical particle touching a plane wall Slip boundary conditions ( )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Understanding the hydrodynamic forces acting upon immersed particles touching surfaces, is of central importance in clean room technology and a variety of rheological and biological applications. This paper addresses the translation and rotation of a sphere translating and rotating parallel to a nearby plane wall bounding an otherwise quiescent semi-infinite viscous fluid, allowing for slip on the wall and/or the sphere. The motivation for disregarding the classical, no-slip boundary condition on solid surfaces aries from an embarrassing discrepancy between theoretical and observed predictions of the translational velocity of a sphere 'rolling' under the influence of gravity down an inclined plane bounding an effectively semi-infinite viscous fluid. According to theory the force and torque on a translating and/or rotating sphere moving parallel to the plane wall become logarithmically infinite with the gap width as the gap between the sphere and well goes to zero. As such, the theoretical conclusion is that the sphere cannot translate down the plane, despite the gravity force that acts to animate it. Experiments, however, reveal that the sphere does, in fact, roll down the plane - at a reproducible mean terminal velocity. In the noninertial, small Reynolds number limit, the experimentally observed drag coefficient was found to be about 8.9 times that given by Stokes law for the unbounded case - thereby suggesting a conventional hydrodynamic wall effect, rather than the logarithmically singular behavior predicted by the theory. It was in an attempt to resolve this glaring contradiction that we have elected here to examine the possible effects of slip
