Polymer Nanofluid for enhanced oil recovery: A design of polystyrene nanoparticles, transport behavior evaluation and unconsolidated flooding test

, , , , , , , ,
This work focuses on the design of a nanoparticle containing polymer and surfactant containing that would be used in solution as a nanofluid for enhanced oil recovery. The nanoparticle is formed by crosslinking chemical reactions [...]

Bulk-Size Transparent Gadolinium Oxide-Polymer Nanocomposites for Gamma Ray Scintillation

, , , , , , , , , , ,
Heavy element loaded polymer composites have long been proposed to detect high energy X- and -rays upon scintillation. The previously reported bulk composite scintillators have achieved limited success because of the diminished light output resulting [...]
