  • This patent describes a method for producing a superconducting complex oxidation reaction product of two or more metals in an oxidized state. It comprises positioning at least one parent metal source comprising one of the metals adjacent to a permeable mass comprising at least one metal-containing compound capable of reaction to form the complex oxidation reaction product in step below, the metal component of the at least one metal-containing compound comprising at least a second of the two or more metals, and orienting the parent metal source and the permeable mass relative to each other so that formation of themore » complex oxidation reaction product will occur in a direction towards and into the permeable mass; and heating the parent metal source in the presence of an oxidant to a temperature region above its melting point to form a body of molten parent metal to permit infiltration and reaction of the molten parent metal into the permeable mass and with the oxidant and the at least one metal-containing compound to form the complex oxidation reaction product, and progressively drawing the molten parent metal source through the complex oxidation reaction product towards the oxidant and towards and into the adjacent permeable mass so that fresh complex oxidation reaction product continues to form within the permeable mass; and recovering the resulting complex oxidation reaction product.« less

  • High viscosity acidic treating fluids comprised of aqueous acid solutions containing zirconium cross-linked hydrophilic organic polymers are provided having improved viscosity and temperature stability properties. Methods of forming such acidic treating fluids and treating subterranean well formations therewith are also provided.
  • Acidizing and fracture acidizing procedures commonly are conducted in subterranean well formations to increase the recovery of hydrocarbons. High viscosity aqueous acid solutions prevent the acid from becoming prematurely spent and inactive and develops wider fractures so that live acid can be forced further into the formations. Acidic treating fluids are formed by combining a hydratable gelling agent capable of being cross-linked with metal ions and a zirconium cross-linking agent with an aqueous acid solution. When hydrated, the gelling agent increases the viscosity of the acid solution. The zirconium cross-linking agent cross-links the hydrated gelling agent thereby further increasing themore » viscosity and providing stability to the resulting viscous fluid. Hydratable gelling agents which are suitable for use are hydrophilic organic polymers having a high molecular weight and containing some carboxyl functionality whereby they can be cross-linked with metal ions. Examples of such polymers are substituted cellulose, substituted natural gums, acrylamides, methacrylamides, acrylates, methacrylates, maleic anhydrides, alkylvinyl ethers, vinyl alcohols and xanthan polymers. 14 claims.« less
  • A method is described of treating a subterranean zone penetrated by a well bore wherein a particulate solid is placed in the zone and thereby subjected to structural and chemical deterioration. This comprises increasing the structural strength and chemical resistance of the particulate solid prior to placement by coating the particulate solid with the reaction product produced by the reaction of an organofunctional silane comprising at least one member selected from the group consisting of aminofunctional silanes, ureidofunctional silanes and epoxyfunctional silanes, present in an amount of from about 0.0005 to about 0.002 gallon per pound of the solids, andmore » an aryl acid halide, present in an amount of from about 0.00015 to about 0.002 gallon per gallon of the silane.« less
