By Charles E. Taylor,Jonathan T. Kwan

This ebook had its genesis in a symposium on gasoline hydrates awarded on the 2003 Spring nationwide assembly of the yankee Institute of Chemical Engineers. The symposium consisted of twenty papers provided in 4 classes over days. extra visitor authors have been invited to supply continuity and canopy themes no longer addressed throughout the symposium. fuel hydrates are a special type of chemical substances the place molecules of 1 compound (the visitor fabric) are enclosed, with out bonding chemically, inside an open stable lattice composed of one other compound (the host material). a lot of these configurations are often called clathrates. The visitor molecules, u- best friend gases, are of an acceptable dimension such that they healthy in the cage shaped by means of the host fabric. Commonexamples of fuel hydrates are carbon dioxide/water and methane/water clathrates. At ordinary strain and temperature, methane hydrate includes through quantity one hundred eighty occasions as a lot methane as hydrate. the us Geological Survey (USGS) has expected that there's extra natural carbon c- tained as methane hydrate than all different kinds of fossil fuels mixed. in reality, methane hydrates may supply a fresh resource of power for a number of centuries. Clathrate compounds have been first found within the early 1800s while Humphrey Davy and Michael Faraday have been experimenting with chlorine-water mixtures.
