  • Research Topic

Phase Equilibria, Supercritical Fluid Technology, Process Simulation and Design
Phase equilibrium is an important area in chemical engineering thermodynamics and separation technology. Our research topics include: (1) Development of an equation of state based on a modified coordination number model for phase equilibrium calculations of polymer solutions. (2) Calculation of vapor-liquid equilibrium and solid solubility in supercritical fluids using improved mixing models. (3) Theoretical calculations on polymer, supercritical fluid, surfactant and multi-component systems. (4) Calculation of mutual diffusion coefficients from the local composition model. Correlations of other thermodynamic properties such as surface tension are currently undergoing. (5) Experimental measurement of vapor-liquid equilibria and solid solubility at high pressure conditions. Experimental studies also include the synthesis of electrically conductive polymer materials using supercritical technology. (6) Applications of computational fluid dynamics, chemical process simulation and integration softwares to study the energy efficient and cleaner production processes. Collaborative studies are currently undergoing with China Petroleum Corporation and the UMIST (UK).
