Smart Diblock Copolymers for Enhanced Oil Recovery Applications
The purpose of this study was to examine the benefits and drawbacks of enhanced oil recovery (EOR).
Synthesis and Characterization of a Reversible and Tunable Smart Polymer
Polymers are made of covalently bonded repeat units, called monomers, which make up long chains. The structure can be controlled to achieve a diblock copolymer with two different repeat units connected in blocks. “Smart” ...
Synthesis, Characterization, and Testing of PEG-PDMAEMA Diblock Smart Polymers
In order to determine if PEG-PDMAEMA serves as both a polymer and a surfactant in EOR, testing of how viscosity and interfacial tension change of the aqueous PEG-PDMAEMA solution is needed. This can predict its ability ...
