Water-Soluble Polymers for Petroleum Recovery: National by G.A. Stahl,D.N. Schulz

By G.A. Stahl,D.N. Schulz

We either discovered ourselves engaged on water-soluble polymers for oil restoration within the early 1980' s. Our previ ous backgrounds i nvo 1 ved the synthesi sand characteri zati on of hydrocarbon polymers for everythi ng from elastomers to plastics. As such, we have been principally unprepared for the designated problems linked to water soluble polymers in genera 1, and thei ruse in more suitable oi 1 restoration (EOR) , in parti cul ar. Oil patch functions have a jargon and technical historical past really except that sometimes skilled through conventional polymer scientists. at the moment, no books have been on hand to aid us "get in control" within the polymers for oil restoration box. due to the fact that then, there were a few symposia in this subject, yet nonetheless few books, specially from the polymer (rather than the field-applications) standpoint. artificial water soluble/swellable polymers have advertisement significance in such program as water remedy, cosmetics, and meals. but, those polymers haven't bought the scientific/technological cognizance they deserve. the applying of water soluble polymers to grease restoration has, in truth, highlighted the necessity for brand new water established fabrics, and a basic knowing in their constitution and use. curiosity has been spurred not just for the potenti a 1 economi c credi ts from more desirable oi 1 restoration and an augmented polymers enterprise, but in addition by means of the problem of designing water soluble polymers for harsh environments.

Polyhydroxyalkanoates from Palm Oil: Biodegradable Plastics (SpringerBriefs in Microbiology)

The environmental difficulties because of petroleum-based plastic and plastic waste have ended in an expanding call for for biobased and biodegradable plastics, equivalent to polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs). those polyesters are synthesized from carbon assets, e. g. sugar and plant oils, through a number of micro organism. This ebook highlights the possibility of plant oils, in particular palm oil, as a feedstock for PHA creation.
