Title: Physicochemical aspects of manufacture of three-phase colloidal fuels

Abstract

The basic physicochemical characteristics of fabrication of three-phase colloidal fuels were analyzed. The effect of the nature and content of solid and liquid phases, type of chemical additives (plasticizers, emulsifiers, and stabilizers), and the basic methods of obtaining three-phase systems from bituminous coals and brown coals were examined.

  • This paper describes several possible interactions among the different types of organic and inorganic aquatic colloids, based on present knowledge of their size, electric charge, and conformation. The physico-chemical properties of the different groups of colloids are described. Emphasis is placed on the various types of organic components, including fulvic compounds. Subsequently, the role of each colloid class is discussed with respect to homoaggregation (aggregation within a given colloid class) and heteroaggregation (aggregation among different colloid types). On the basis of a synthesis of literature reports, microscopic observations of natural colloids, experimental results obtained with model systems, and numerical simulations,more » it is concluded that the formation of aggregates in aquatic systems can be understood by mainly considering the roles of three types of colloids: (1) compact inorganic colloids; (2) large, rigid biopolymers; and (3) either the soil-derived fulvic compounds or their equivalent in pelagic waters, aquagenic refractory organic matter. In most natural aquatic systems, the small fulvic compounds will stabilize the inorganic colloids whereas the rigid biopolymers will destabilize them. The concentration of stable colloids in a particular aquatic system will depend on the relative proportions of these three components.« less
  • Using example powders such as those of tungsten, molybdenum and niobium, the authors establish that ultradisperseed media show reductions in melting point and in polymorphic transition and sintering temperature along with increases in diffusion coefficient and chemical activity as a consequence of the material energy being in excess of that for the equilibrium condensed media. Such an excess-energy material can result from dispersal, quenching, deformation, or irradiation.
