Structure and Dynamics of Clathrate Hydrates For Systems of Industrial Interest

Speaker: 
Prof Peter Englezos
Institution: 
The University of British Columbia
Time: 
Tue, Apr 15, 2008, 4:00pm

Clathrate or gas hydrates are non-stoichiometric crystals formed by the enclosure of molecules (guests) like natural gas components into a framework of water (host) molecules under suitable temperature, pressure and material availability conditions. This phase change phenomenon is of interest on its own merit. Blockage of hydrocarbon processing and transport facilities has been a known problem in industry since the 1930s.
