  • Rice Scientists Present Their Protocol for Carbon Nanotube Handling

    AZoNano , 4th Jun 2019

    The lab’s low-cost technique is explained in full in an open-access paper in the Springer Nature journal SN Applied Sciences.

    Carbon nanotubes, in bulk form, are fluffy and scatter easily if disturbed. The Rice lab usually stores the tubes in 5-gallon plastic buckets, and merely opening the lid is sufficient to cause them to fly due to their low density.

  • Nanomaterial safety on a nano budget

    EurekAlert! , 3rd Jun 2019

    Full details are available in the paper, but the precautions include making sure workers are properly attired with long pants, long sleeves, lab coats, full goggles and face masks, along with two pairs of gloves duct-taped to the lab coat sleeves. The improvised glove bag involves a 25-gallon trash bin with a plastic bag taped to the rim. The unopened storage container is placed inside, and then the bin is covered with another transparent trash bag, with small holes cut in the top for access.

  • A novel EOR surfactant

    The Chemical Engineer , 13th May 2019

    Scientists at Swansea University, UK have developed a novel, ‘green’ surfactant which improves oil recovery by 72%. The surfactant is quick and simple to synthesise and could provide a cheaper, greener alternative to common EOR surfactants.

  • A New Class of Low Surface Energy Anionic Surfactant for Enhanced Oil Recovery

    ACS Publications , 10th Apr 2019

    A new type of green low surface energy surfactant (LSES) that is stable in the harsh conditions of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) has been reported. This efficient surfactant examined by scientists at Swansea University is shown to improve the oil recovery by 72% in both low and high brine solutions, a remarkable result for only a single chain surfactant flooding, compared to 45% recovery in the presence of other surfactants alone.
