As described earlier in this article, the driving force of water absorption of water swellables is the chemical potential
difference between swellable elastomer and surrounding fluid.
1 indicates that the molecules of oil which belong to drops of different sizes have distinct chemical potentials
The Fischer-Tropsch process operates at elevated pressures; the ideal gas model for chemical potential
is not expected to be valid.
A corresponding defining inequality exists also for the chemical potentials
[mu], as we will discuss in the next subsection.
The correlation of the binary VLE data was performed using thermodynamic conditions at equilibrium where the chemical potentials
In Equation (16) the residual chemical potential
To obtain the values shown in Table 4, we first predicted the Flory-Huggins interaction parameter between methanol and each polymer, and then, by using the relationship between the chemical potentials
of the liquid and the polymeric phase, we calculated the equilibrium concentration when solutions of 12 gol/l and 18.
Vrentas and Duda expressed a functional relation among the mutual diffusion coefficient, chemical potentials
and self-diffusion coefficients of a polymer/small molecule system by (30)
This was carried out by equating the chemical potentials
Variations of the chemical potentials
of the constituents with composition during sorption have been calculated from the Gibbs-Duhem equation:
Mathematical Expression Omitted], [Mathematical Expression Omitted] = Chemical potentials
of a component i in liquid and vapor phases, respectively, J/kmol.
