Investigation of the commercial feasibility of separation of azeotropic mixtures of N-Butyl alcohol and water by gaseous diffusion
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1950-12)
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 ...
Surface area measurements of porous media by means of transient state flow
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1957-08)
Diffusion in liquids

Computational assessment of zeolitic imidazolate frameworks for kinetic gas separations
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-07-27)
Industrial separations of light gases and hydrocarbons are currently performed with well-established energy and capital intensive distillation. Within the last decade, certain research advances have energy suppliers focused ...
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 ...
Exploring metamaterials for the control of mass diffusion
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-03-29)
In this work we have explored the use of metamaterials theory for the design of materials and devices able to control mass diffusion at will. First, we focus in the design of metamaterials able to control the diffusion of ...
Computational Modeling of Adsorption of Complex Molecules in Metal-Organic Frameworks
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-11-01)
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are nanoporous materials that have organic parts connected to metal nodes constructing a crystalline structures. MOFs are intrinsically flexible in nature, however, general practices in ...
Surface modification of paper and cellulose using plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition employing fluorocarbon precursors
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-01-18)
Paper and cellulosic materials hold a good promise of being candidates for flexible packaging materials provided suitable barrier properties such as water repellence and grease resistance are imparted to them. One of the ...
A study of diffusion in porous media
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1953-05)
