    Abstract: Transport of lysine acetylsalicylate (LAS) through supported liquid membrane was investigated using methyl cholate (MC) as extractive agent. Kinetic and thermodynamic models were developed, based on the interaction of the substrate LAS with the extractive agent T, and the diffusion of the formed entity (TS) through the membrane. The experimental re... Show More

    Abstract: The inhibition effect of some inhibitors on super 13Cr stainless steel corrosion in CaCl2 completion fluids with 1.0MPa CO2 was investigated. The results indicated that the super 13Cr stainless steel was susceptible to uniform and stress corrosion cracking (SCC) without inhibitors. After addition urotropine, the uniform corrosion was inhibited, and... Show More

    Abstract: Do really reverse osmosis (RO) membranes need modification to cover their disadvantages or enhance their efficiency? Are there any defects in RO membranes manufacturing that require modification? These questions are discussed here in this short review. Through the world, there are thousands of patents, publications, and PhD theses dealing with surf... Show More
