Spectroscopy and quantum calculations uncover the secrets of alumina supports

Using quantum calculations and the first molecular model of the edges of gamma alumina crystallites, a material widely employed in catalysis, teams from IFPEN and the CRMN revisited the NMR spectrum assignment established in the literature up until now.

Foam rheology in porous media

For processes involving gas injection, such as enhanced oil recovery (EORa) and CO2 storage operations, the use of foam makes it easier to control gas mobility. Improving these processes requires

Phase equilibria in confined media

In many geological reservoirs, pore size distribution is highly heterogeneous (from 2 to 50 nm). While the molecular size of the confined fluids is between 0.5 and 10 nm, their interaction forces with

Adsorption, a key factor for geological storage

Low permeability geological layers, already known within the context of oil exploration, are once again becoming a focus of interest for energy (compressed air), gas (CO2, H2, CH4) and waste storage
