Table-1: (a) The variation of logarithm of specific retention volumes, Vg0 (ml/g), of alcohols and alkanes with temperature using poly(ABM) as stationary phase.
Conversely, the majority of semi-volatile hydrocarbons collected on XAD resin represented alkane substituted benzenes such as 1,2,4-trimethyl benzene and 3-ethyl-1-methyl benzene, 3-ethyl-1-methyl benzene which are typical of unburned diesel fuel and oxygen containing benzenes representing partially burned fuel.
al [10] (LOPLS) reproduced densities and the heats of vaporization of alkanes and alkenes of different lengths (both short and long hydrocarbons) and therefore were chosen for n-hexadecane.
He explained that while alkanes are a key component in combustible materials that serve people, they also pose risks to security, the environment and human health.
Alkanes in the oils are, according to structure, divided into three classes: n-alkanes, branched alkanes and cycloalkanes, their distribution is shown in Figure 2.
Dry matter intake (DMI, kg DM/d) was estimated from the ratio of naturally occurring and dosed alkanes ([C.
The Korean researchers described detailed strategies for screening of enzymes associated with the production of fatty acids, engineering of enzymes and fatty acid biosynthetic pathways to concentrate carbon flux towards the short-chain fatty acid production, and also converting short-chain fatty acids to their corresponding alkanes (gasoline) by introducing a novel synthetic pathway and optimization of culture conditions.
GC/FI can also be used to characterize samples difficult to analyze by other techniques, such as unsubstituted alkanes.
The standard sensitivity mode works well for polar compounds such as ketones, alcohols, and esters, while the high-sensitivity mode works well for compounds such as halogenated alkanes and substituted aromatics, as well as mixtures with one or more compounds of low concentration.
Alkanofer \aI-KAN-o-fer\ A subsurface body made of liquid alkanes, molecules such as methane and ethane that contain only single-bonded carbon and hydrogen atoms.
Results indicated that 24-hr transition metals and alkanes were associated with increased odds of hospital admissions for cardiovascular disease (CVD); transition metals were significantly associated with increased hospital admissions for ischemic heart disease, congestive heart failure, and atrial fibrillation; increased respiratory-related hospital admissions were significantly associated with exposure to alkanes; and aromatics and microcrystalline oxides were significantly associated with decreased CVD- and respiratory-related hospital admissions.
The main components of the base oil are cyclic alkanes (c-alkanes).
has all the capabilities of the natural gas edition, but is limited to the straight chain alkanes, methane through decane.
Mass transfer studies of carbon dioxide to liquid alkanes were carried out using the apparatus described in articles of our research group (Gomez-Daz and Navaza, 2003a,b) in previous works related to absorption processes.
