Performance of Polymer Solutions for Enhanced Oil Recovery

| Sponsored by Malvern Panalytical

In this article we take an introductory look at work carried out by TU Clausthal to develop an improved understanding of the mechanisms of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) by polymer flooding, and the relevance of fluid rheology. Example data illustrates the insight that rheology provides and its application in optimizing fluid performance.

Combined DLS/Raman provides New Molecular Insights of Complex Fluids

| Sponsored by Malvern Panalytical

In particular, this article demonstrates the correlation between molecular changes (Raman Spectroscopy) and microstructural evolution of rheological properties (DLS, DLS-optical microrheology) for the first time for surfactant-based wormlike micellar system. Whereby, Raman Spectroscopy provides information about the molecular structure and DLS-microrheology characterizes viscoelastic properties, the combination of data delivered allows for a deeper understanding of the molecular changes underlying the viscoelastic ones. The study illustrates the utility of the combined DLS, DLS-optical microrheology and Raman Spectroscopy in providing new molecular structural insights into the self-assembly process in complex fluids.

The optimization and scale-up of high shear granulation

| Sponsored by Malvern Panalytical

This article explains how an inline probe was used to monitor a granulation at three different scales to confirm that, in each case, the granules produced were the same size, and more importantly produced tablets of identical quality as quantified by hardness.
