Surface to volume ratio of carbon nanohorn - a crucial factor in co 2/ch4 mixture separation
MetadataShow full item record
Using the first realistic model of single walled carbon nanohorn and molecular simulation data we show the 3D graphs relating the selectivity of CO2/CH4 separation with a surface to volume ratio of a nanohorn, the total mixture pressure and the mole fraction of CO2 in the bulk phase. It is proved that surface to volume ratio is a crucial parameter determining the selectivity. Finally, the equation is proposed, making possible to predict the selectivity of a nanohorn for separation of CO2/CH4 mixture.
