Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

THERMODYNAMICS OF WATER AND AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS; EQUILIBRIUM THERMODYNAMICS. Expert's primary research focus has been on the thermodynamics of water and aqueous solutions and how they are affected by temperature and pressure. He has expertise in equilibrium properties such as vapor pressure and density, and in non-equilibrium properties such as viscosity and conductance. In addition, he has devoted great effort to the dissolution of gases in aqueous solutions.

SOLUBILITY OF SALTS IN WATER AND AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS; WATERFLOODING. For the past ten years, Expert has conducted research on the solubility of "scale" materials, including CaSO4 2H2O and CaCO3,in aqueous solutions, and how it is affected by temperature and pressure. He has also worked on the solubilities and properties of very soluble salts such as NaCl and CaCl2 and their mixtures. In addition, he has researched the chemical problems that occur when different brines are mixed. This all provides a solid foundation for his expertise in "water flood" chemistry.

MEASUREMENT TECHNIQUES FOR AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS. Expert has over 30 years experience in the development of measurement techniques for water and aqueous solutions. He has worked with electrode techniques, density techniques, conductance, and UV-visible spectroscopy. He is familiar with more exotic techniques, including ultrasonic velocity and absorption. In addition, he has worked on the measurement of solubilities under high temperature-pressure conditions.

KINETICS OF PROCESSES IN AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS. Expert has used many different kinetics techniques to study the rates of processes in aqueous systems. These systems have ranged from the dissolution kinetics of solids to the very fast processes characteristic of acids and bases.
