Computational discovery of metal-organic frameworks for separations of organic molecules
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-07-09)
The separation of para-xylene from a stream of mixed xylenes and ethylbenzene is critical for the large-scale production of plastics in the petrochemical industry. Several groups have identified metal-organic frameworks ...
Control of diffusive time scales in zeolitic imidazolate frameworks for the kinetic separation of light hydrocarbons
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2018-04-03)
The goal of this thesis is to investigate new sorbent materials for the kinetic separation of light hydrocarbons and incorporate them into a viable mass transfer contactor for use in a pressure swing adsorption unit. Three ...
