Mass Transfer Kinetics of Carbon Dioxide into Concentrated Aqueous Solutions of Monoethanolamine
(Doctoral dissertations at TUC;2013:2, Doctoral thesis; Peer reviewed, 2013-02-15)
Global warming arguments have gained more and more attention due to the new regulations of carbon dioxide (CO2) emission in the world. Monoethanolamine (MEA) has been employed as an important industrial absorbent for CO2 ...
Production of polysilicon from silane pyrolysis in a fluidized bed
(Doctoral dissertations at TUC;2013:3, Doctoral thesis; Peer reviewed, 2013-06-07)
The photovoltaic industry has experienced a tremendous growth over the last years. The backbone of the technology has so far been elemental silicon. Silicon is the second most abundant element on the earth, but in order ...
Degradation of Aqueous 2-Amino-2-methyl-1-propanol for Carbon Dioxide Capture
(Doctoral dissertations at TUC;2013:1, Doctoral thesis; Peer reviewed, 2013-01-29)
Absorption-stripping with aqueous 2-amino-2-methyl-1-propanol (AMP), and especially AMP blends with other amines, such as monoethanolamine (MEA) and piperazine (PZ), presents an attractive option for carbon dioxide (CO2) ...
Post combustion CO2 capture using aqueous amine solvents: Investigations on molecular structure-activity relationships for amine solvents
(Doctoral dissertations at TUC;2015:3, Doctoral thesis; Peer reviewed, 2015-06-25)
The study in this dissertation focuses on chemical absorption of CO2 using aqueous amine which is expected to be the technology of choice for early large scale deployment of postcombustion carbon capture (PCC). However ...
