A novel hybrid materials Fe3O4 nanoparticles supported by hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) is successfully prepared via mussel-inspired chemistry of dopamine by hydrothermal synthesis method. The surface modification and microstructure of h-BN-Fe3O4 are characterized by FT-IR, XRD, XPS, SEM and TEM. The nano-Fe3O4 obtain well dispersion supported by h-BN layer platform, and the h-BN-Fe3O4 hybrid materials exhibit a remarkable superiority in enhancing the anticorrosion performance of epoxy coatings. The lamellar structural h-BN and nano-Fe3O4 provide a significant synergistic effect in anticorrosion performance for epoxy composite coatings. In addition, the anticorrosion mechanisms of h-BN-Fe3O4 are tentatively discussed. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.

Demulsifier is widely used in the petroleum industry to remove water from crude oil all over the word. It is believed that demulsifier reduces the stability of the oil-water interface by adsorbing on asphaltene. However, the adsorption kinetic is still unrevealed. Herein, the investigation was carried out to measure the adsorption behavior of triblock copolymer demulsifier poly (propylene oxide)-poly (ethylene oxide)-poly (propylene oxide) (PPO-PEO-PPO, which also named as SP-169 in petroleum industry) on asphaltene. In this paper, the adsorption behaviors of SP-169 on the asphaltene were investigated by dual polarization interferometry (DPI). DPI is a real-time and label-free analytical technique used to measure the structure changes of molecular layers in the solid/liquid interface. First, asphaltene was immobilized onto the silicon oxynitride chip surface by spin coating. Then, different concentrations of SP-169 solution were, respectively, injected onto the immobilized chips. Finally, the real-time mass, thickness, density changes during the adsorption process were accordingly recorded and calculated. The overall results show that the adsorption behavior of SP-169 on asphaltene obeys a two-step process. Concentration and the rearrangement of adsorbed molecule are both contribution to the adsorption of SP-169. Furthermore, the release of monomer from micelle above 300 mg/L results in special adsorption behavior. © 2015 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg

Oil-in-water emulsion is an innovate manner by which heavy crude oil can be transported from producing sites to transforming sites through pipelines. The effect of emulsifier on the interfacial properties and demulsification performance of demulsifier for heavy crude oil–in-water emulsion has been studied by many researchers. However, the influence of asphaltene in heavy crude oil on the interfacial properties of demulsifier has not been investigated yet. In this article, the influence of asphaltene concentration of two typical demulsifiers (straight-chained SP-1 and branch-chained AE-1) was systematically studied in terms of absorption thermodynamics, absorption kinetics, and coalescence kinetics. The results revealed that the demulsifier adsorption was a ΔS controlled spontaneous process. The absolute value of ΔG of SP-1 adsorption was found to decrease with asphaltene concentration, whilst the asphaltene concentration had no significant influence on that of AE-1. With the increase of asphaltene concentration, the demulsifiers’ adsorption rates increased, but the reorganization rates on the interface decreased. Coalescence speed of asphaltene droplet decreased with asphaltene concentration in spite of demulsifier type. Additionally, AE-1 had higher absolute value of ΔG, adsorption speed, and coalescence speed than that of SP-1 at the same condition. © 2016, Copyright © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

CuSO4·5H2O and Na2S2O3 were used as the copper and sulfur sources which were mixed with the graphene oxide (GO) solution to synthesize rGO–CuS/Cu2S heteronanostructures by a facile one-pot method. Scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscope, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy observations show the morphology and elemental distribution of the composites, confirming that CuS/Cu2S heteronanostructures are decorated on the GO sheets. The experimental results of photocatalytic degradation also show that the novel composites exhibit remarkable visible-light photocatalytic activities for methylthionine blue dye degradation whose degradation rate is 96 %. The high visible photocatalytic performances are attributed to photoinduced interfacial charge transfer in the heteronanostructures and their further transfer by rGO sheets. This new composition is expected to show considerable potential applications in water purification. © 2016 Springer Science+Business Media New York
