  • OBJECTIVE: The Surface Science Lab aims at investigating colloids and interfaces of interest in petroleum engineering, with special emphasis on enhanced oil recovery relevant interfacial behavior.

    1. Crude oil emulsion stability research.
    2. Flocculation mechanisms in dispersed system.

    1. Light diffraction system for particle sizing. Particle size can be determined from a few hundreds of nanometers up to milimiters.
    2. Ultrasonic probe up to 500 Watts in power.
    3. A tabletop centrifuge for separation studies (bottle tests).
    4. Homogenizers.
    5. Conductivity and pH probes.
