Improving efficiencies of thermal energy conversion systems is an important way to slow down global warming and mitigate climate change. Vapor absorption heat pump and refrigeration cycles are highly efficient ways of heating and cooling. These thermally activated systems also provide opportunities for the integration with a wide spectrum of low...

Separation and selective production of branched paraffins are among the most important and still challenging processes in the oil and gas industry. Addition of branched hydrocarbons can increase the octane number of a fuel without causing additional environmental concerns. Conversion of linear hydrocarbons into branched ones also improves the...

The research presented in this thesis focuses on the use of hydrate slurries in the air conditioning and refrigeration areas. Both experimental and mathematical methods have been used. Hydrate slurries have been suggested as promising cold storage materials that can be used in air conditioning systems due to their high latent heat (193 kJ/kg and...

Monte Carlo simulations were performed in the NPT ensemble and in an expanded version of the Gibbs ensemble. The phase behavior of single-phase hard-sphere chain fluids was determined using NPT ensemble simulations, while the isotropic-nematic phase equilibrium of single-component and binary mixtures of hard-sphere and Lennard-Jones fluids was...

The aim of the study described in this thesis is to obtain a profound understanding of transformations in NCs at the atomic level, by performing molecular simulations for such transformations, and by comparing the simulation results with available experimental high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) data to validate the...

In this thesis, we investigated the potential of physical ILs for CO2 capture at pre-combustion and natural gas sweetening conditions. The performance of ILs with respect to conventional solvents is assessed in terms of gas solubilities and selectivities. The work discussed in this thesis consists of two parts. The first part deals with...

The increase in concentrations of greenhouse gases is responsible for global warming over the past few years. A major portion of the emitted greenhouse gases contains carbon dioxide (CO2). The capture of carbon dioxide from the effluent sources, its transport, and storage has been identified as the most promising method to mitigate global...

In this thesis I aim to contribute to a molecular understanding and -description of the phase behaviour of liquid crystalline materials. In particular, I aim at the development of a molecular-based equation of state (EoS) for describing nematic (only orientationally ordered) liquid crystals (LCs) and their mixtures. Special emphasis is put on...

A novel class of materials, i.e. Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs), has successfully been developed that is extremely suited for application in heat pumps and chillers. They have a superior performance over commercial sorbents and may potentially contribute to considerable energy savings worldwide. Globally about 33 % of the energy consumption is...

Global greenhouse gas emissions, especially of CO2, have been increasing tremendously over the past century. This is known to cause not only an increase of temperature, but also a change in our climate. Along with a shift to renewable sources of energy, Carbon Capture and Storage is necessary to mitigate climate change. Power plants are the...

In this thesis the technical and economic performance of compression-resorption heat pumps has been investigated. The main objective of this thesis was to improve the performance and reduce the investment costs of compression-resorption heat pumps applied in process industry. A model that is able to capture the performance of most heat pumps...

The aim of this thesis is to study multicomponent diffusion in liquids using Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations. Diffusion plays an important role in mass transport processes. In binary systems, mass transfer processes have been studied extensively using both experiments and molecular simulations. From a practical point of view, systems...

The adsorption of water on hydrophobic zeolites such as silicalite and on hydrophilic MOF (metal-organic framework), Cu-BTC, is completely different, as described in chapters 2 and 4. While in hydrophobic materials water adsorption isotherms are very steep and difficult to measure, both experimentally and by simulation, in hydrophilic materials...
