Shedding light on the external surface of zeolites by quantum calculation

Thanks to quantum modeling calculations conducted on the ZSM-5 zeolite, IFPEN’s research has nevertheless demonstrated the existence of a much larger variety of active sites on the surface than in the internal nanoporosity.

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

Processes are converting to microfluidics

The diversification of resources (atypical oil feeds or bio-based feeds) is leading to the development of new conversion processesa or to the upgrading of flexibility for existing ones. These
