1. Interrogating the Carbon and Oxygen K-edge NEXAFS of a CO2-dosed Hyperbranched Aminosilica
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 12/19/2014
Authors: Laura Espinal, Martin L Green, Dean M DeLongchamp, Watcharop Chaikittisilp, Jarod Chrystopher Horn, Miles Sakwa-Novak, Cherno Jaye, Daniel A Fischer, Nicholas Brunelli, Christopher Jones
Abstract: Near edge x-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) spectroscopy was used to study the adsorption of CO2 in a hyperbranched aminosilica (HAS) compound, a porous solid state material with great potential for carbon capture applications. After dosing a ...

2. A thermodynamic investigation of the cellulose allomorphs: cellulose(am), cellulose I¿(cr), cellulose II(cr), and cellulose III(cr)
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 11/11/2014
Authors: Robert Nathan Goldberg, Jacob Schliesser, Ashutosh Mittal, Stephen R Decker, Ana Filipa L.O.M. Santos, Vera L.S. Freitas, Aaron A Urbas, Brian E Lang, Christian Heisse, Maria D. M. C. Ribeiro da Silva, Brian F Woodfield, Rui Katahira, Wei Wang, David K Johnson
Abstract: The thermochemistry of samples of amorphous cellulose, cellulose I, cellulose II, and cellulose III was studied by using oxygen bomb calorimetry, solution calorimetry in which the solvent was cadoxen, and with a Physical Property Measurement System ...

3. Reference Correlation of the Viscosity of n-Heptane from the Triple Point to 600 K and up to 248 MPa
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 6/5/2014
Authors: E.K. Michailidou, Marc J. Assael, Marcia L Huber, Ilmutdin Magomedovich Abdulagatov, Richard A Perkins
Abstract: This paper contains new, representative reference equations for the viscosity of n-heptane. The equations are based in part upon a body of experimental data that has been critically assessed for internal consistency and for agreement with theory when ...

4. Thermal decomposition kinetics of the thermally stable jet fuels JP-7, JP-TS and JP-900
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 4/3/2014
Authors: Raina V. Gough, Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The global thermal decomposition kinetics of JP-7, JP-TS and JP-900 were studied. Decomposition reactions were performed at 375, 400, 425, and 450 °C in stainless-steel ampule reactors. At each temperature, the extent of decomposition as a function o ...

5. Determination of Trace Sulfur in Biodiesel and Diesel Standard Reference Materials by Isotope Dilution Sector Field Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 11/14/2013
Authors: Steven J Christopher, Stephen E Long, Renata Amais, Joaquim N¿ga
Abstract: A method is described for quantification of sulfur at low concentrations on the order of 10 µg g-1 in biodiesel and diesel fuels using double isotope dilution and sector field inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ID-SF-ICP-MS). Closed vessel ...

6. Wide Ranging Viscosity Measurements of Rocket Propellant RP-2
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 8/28/2013
Authors: Arno R Laesecke, Dylan S. Cousins
Abstract: Expanding on earlier viscosity measurements of rocket propellants from 293 K to 373 K at atmospheric pressure, the viscosity of rocket propellant RP-2 was measured from 270 K to 450 K with pressures to 137 MPa. The instrument was an oscillating pisto ...

7. Mass diffusion of organic fluids: a molecular dynamics perspective
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1805
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 5/31/2013
Authors: Alexander Y Smolyanitsky, Andrei F Kazakov, Thomas J Bruno, Marcia L Huber
Abstract: A well-established interaction potential, the Optimized Potential for Liquid Simulation All-Atom (OPLS-AA) force-field, within the MD framework was used to determine self- and mutual diffusivity of several near-critical and supercritical fluids. ...

8. Assessment of the Thermophysical Properties of Thermally Stressed RP-1 and RP-2
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 5/2/2013
Authors: Tara J Fortin, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: Density, speed of sound, and viscosity have been measured for samples of RP-1 and RP-2 that were stressed for 0.5 min at 475 °C and 510 °C at a pressure of 17 MPa. Density and speed of sound were measured from 5 °C to 50 °C for the samples stressed ...

9. Chemical and Thermophysical Characterization of 1,3,5-triisopropylcyclohexane
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 7/17/2012
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Tara J Fortin, Tara M Lovestead, Jason A Widegren
Abstract: The complex nature of finished fuels makes definitive studies on composition and combustion properties very difficult and uncertain. This has led to the adoption of fuel surrogate mixtures in such studies. The development of a surrogate mixture is ...

10. Assessment of Variability in the Thermophysical Properties of Rocket Propellant RP-1
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 6/14/2012
Author: Tara J Fortin
Abstract: Density, speed of sound, and viscosity has been measured for eleven orthogonal blends of the rocket propellant RP-1. Density and speed of sound were measured over the temperature range of 278 K to 343 K, while viscosity was measured from 263 K to 373 ...
