Oil and gas
Characterization at the nanoscale can help you find answers.
With X-ray scattering in your lab, you can for example:
- Determine the pore size, shape and spatial correlation of networks and nanodomains in shale, coal and polymer films for CO2/CH4 separation
- Characterize the morphology of stabilizing nanostructures in bioethanol/diesel mixtures
- Investigate the size, shape and stability of asphaltene micro-emulsions
- Reveal the morphology and topological structure of spherical mesostructured cellular silica foams
Using SAXS to characterize nanocomposite films for gas separation
SAXS measurements reveal the effect of annealing the films with solvent vapor.
With SAXS and WAXS you get a statistically relevant answer within one measurement
Pore size and pore distribution, fractal dimensions, specific interface…
