12. Density and Speed of Sound Measurements of Four Bio-derived Fuels
Topic: Sustainability
Published: 9/13/2012
Authors: Stephanie L Outcalt, Tara J Fortin
Abstract: Compressed-liquid densities and ambient pressure densities and speeds of sound of four biomass-derived fuels have been measured. The compressed-liquid measurements were made from 270 K to 470 K, and 0.5 MPa to 50 MPa. The ambient pressure measureme ...

13. Saturation molalities and standard molar enthalpies of solution of alpha-D-xylose(cr) in H2O(l); Standard molar enthalpies of solution of 1,4-beta-D-xylobiose(am), and 1,4-beta-D-xylotriose(am) in H2O(l)
Topic: Sustainability
Published: 5/14/2012
Authors: Robert Nathan Goldberg, Brian E Lang, Bruce Coxon, Stephen R. Decker
Abstract: The saturation molality of alpha-D-xylose(cr) in water was measured by using HPLC and is m(sat) = (8.43 ± 0.42) mol∙kg-1 at the temperature T = 298.15 K. It was also established that the anhydrous form of alpha-D-xylose(cr) is the crystalline ...

14. Materials Challenges in Carbon Mitigation Technologies
Topic: Sustainability
Published: 4/24/2012
Authors: Laura Espinal, Bryan D. Morreale
Abstract: Thermochemical conversion of fossil fuels currently dominates the national and global energy portfolio, with the most notable being the stationary power production and transportation vehicles sectors. As global energy demand continues to increase, p ...

15. Carbon Storage Properties of OMS-2 Manganese Oxide
Topic: Sustainability
Published: 4/10/2012
Authors: Lan (Lan) Li, Eric J Cockayne, Laura Espinal, Winnie K Wong-Ng
Abstract: Manganese oxide OMS-2 material, also known as alpha-MnO2, exhibits CO2 sorption hysteresis at pressures > 7 bar. Our experiments show that the hysteretic behavior strongly depends on time, temperature and pressure. To understand the atomic structures ...

18. Effect of Al2O3 Nanolubricant on a Passively Enhanced R134a Pool Boiling Surface
Topic: Sustainability
Published: 11/15/2011
Author: Mark A Kedzierski
Abstract: This paper quantifies the influence of Al2O3 nanoparticles on the pool boiling performance of R134a/polyolester mixtures on a Turbo-BII-HP boiling surface. An Al2O3 nanolubricant (a lubricant containing dispersed nano-size particles) was made by sus ...
