21. 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 ...

22. Investigating the Unique Properties of Cuphea Derived Biodiesel with the Advanced Distillation Curve Method
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 5/17/2010
Authors: Tara M Lovestead, Bret Windom, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: Currently, there is a desire to extend or enhance petroleum-derived diesel fuel with biodiesel fuel. Biodiesel fuel is a renewable, biomass-derived fluid that is biodegradable, nontoxic, and a better lubricant compared to petroleum-derived diesel fu ...

23. 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. ...

24. Measurement Challenges and Metrology for Monitoring CO2 Emissions from Smokestacks ‹ Workshop Summary
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1201
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 1/20/2016
Authors: Aaron N Johnson, Rodney A Bryant, Tamae M Wong, James R Whetstone, Eric Harman, Woong Kang, Keith A Gillis, Hsin-Hung Lee, Iosif I Shinder, Liang Zhang
Abstract: On April 20-21, 2015, NIST hosted a workshop that, through measurement science, enabled the owners of stationary sources (primarily the electric power industry) and their regulatory agencies (federal and state) to better characterize greenhouse gas ( ...

25. Measurements of Density and Speed of Sound of JP-10 and Comparison to Rocket Propellants and Jet Fuels
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 2/14/2011
Authors: Stephanie L Outcalt, Arno R Laesecke
Abstract: Densities of the missile fuel JP-10 were measured with two vibrating-tube densimeters. The combined range of the data is from 270 K to 470 K with pressures to 30 MPa. The speed of sound in the fuel was measured with a propagation time method at ambie ...

26. Method for Estimating the Dielectirc Constant of Natural Gas Mixtures
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 1/11/2005
Authors: Allan H Harvey, Eric W Lemmon
Abstract: A method is developed for calculating the static dielectric constant (relative permittivity) of fluid mixtures, with an emphasis on natural gas. The dielectric constant is calculated as a function of temperature, density, and composition; the densit ...

28. Methodology for Formulating Diesel Surrogate Fuels with Accurate Compositional, Ignition-Quality, and Volatility Characteristics
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 5/14/2012
Authors: Charles J. Mueller, William J. Cannella, Thomas J Bruno, Bruce Bunting, Heather Dettman, James A. Franz, Marcia L Huber, Mani Natarajan, William J. Pitz, Matthew A. Ratcliff, Ken Wright
Abstract: In this work a novel approach is developed to formulate surrogate fuels having characteristics that are representative of diesel fuels produced from real-world refinery streams. Because diesel fuels consist of hundreds of compounds, it is difficult t ...

29. P-{rho}-T Behavior of Four Lean Synthetic Natural-Gas-Like Mixtures from 250 K to 450 K with Pressures to 37 MPa
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 2/18/2011
Author: Mark O McLinden
Abstract: The p-{rho}-T behaviors of four lean synthetic natural gas mixtures were measured along isotherms of 250 K, 350 K, and 450 K with pressures to 37 MPa with a two-sinker, magnetic-suspension densimeter. The gravimetrically prepared mixtures have seven ...
