I offer this solution with a great deal of caution: It's conceivable that the knowledge gained from this work could be incorporated into novel dispersant
formulations designed specifically for photochemically weathered oil.
These are areas where dispersant
use should be considered on a case-by-case basis.
(3,4) Yet until now, none attempted to distinguish between potential effects of dispersants
versus crude oil exposure.
Therefore, we try to use APA and DAC as base and acid dispersant
agents, as their initial respective pHs at 8.7 and 5.4 can stabilize YSZ suspensions.
Structured polymers/non-ionic dispersants
(such as block copolymers) are frequently used for steric stabilization of nanoparticle dispersions.
High Energy Water-Accommodated Fraction, Chemically Enhanced Water-Accommodated Fraction, and Dispersant
Air Products Materials Technologies segment introduced ZetaSperse 3800, its latest addition to its portfolio of polymeric dispersants
This can result in synergistic benefits, but selection is critical to avoid competitive behaviors with the dispersant
The Deepwater Horizon rig spilled more than 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, and responders used nearly 2 million gallons of dispersant
to help keep oil slicks from reaching shore.
Pedigo questions: "What happened to the remainder of the estimated 2 million barrels of oil plus dispersant
chemicals left in the Gulf of Mexico and how are the continued appearing slicks and unnatural seeps from the fractured seabed floor in the Macondo zone being handled?
"Investing in expanded dispersant
production continues Dow's ongoing objective to bring new products and technology innovations to market faster than ever before," continued Bermudez.
Therefore, a small amount of dispersant
or surfactant is needed to improve the suspension performance of nanofluids produced by one-step synthesis methods.
