The chromatographic grade molecular probes used in this study, including ethyl alcohol (C2), 1-propyl alcohol (C3), 1-butyl alcohol (C4), n-hexane (C6), n-heptane (C7), and n-octane (C8), were obtained from Merck Chemical Co.
n-octane and n-dodecane and in case of 50:50 mixture, we had 50 molecules of each n-octane and n-dodecane.
In the case of binary mixtures of n-octane and n-dodecane, we could compare our viscosity predictions to the published experimental data by Dymond et.
Viscosity Coefficients for n-Octane, n-Dodecane, and Equimolar Mixtures of n-Octane + n-Dodecane and n-Hexane + n-Dodecane from 25 to 100 C at Pressures Up to the Freezing Pressure or 500 MPa, " Int.
On the second analytical path the heavier components are grouped into hexanes, heptanes and octanes, with the components larger than n-octane back-flushed to provide a C9+ grouped component value.
Yi and Cai [8] used perfluoroalkylated pyridine as a catalyst; benzaldehyde was slowly added into a mixture of malononitrile, n-octane and the catalyst and was stirred for 1.
Water and n-octane were used as solvents for [2-aemim][[PF.
The measurement results of water contact angles and the solvent absorptions in water and n-octane for cured films showed that the water and the oil repellency for FSiPUA had been improved significantly with a suitable content of fluorine and siloxane.
The weighed cured film was dipped in deionized water or n-octane at room temperature for 24 h.
ZrOCl2*8H2O [Merck, 8917], NH4OH [BDH, 27140], AgNO3 [Merck, 1512], PdCl2 [Alfa Aesar, 1103], benzyl alcohol [Merck, 9626], benzaldehyde [Scharlu, BE0160], n-heptane [Merck, 4379], toluene [BDH, 10284], and n-octane [BDH, 29407] were used as received.
In order to compare the oxidation potential of our catalyst, the oxidation of benzyl alcohol was carried out in the presence as well as in the absence of different organic solvents like n-heptane, n-octane as well as water.
Fractionation was carried out to characterize the virgin grade by sequentially extracting soluble fractions with n-hexane, n-heptane, and n-octane at the boiling temperature of each solvent for two days using a Soxhlet extraction apparatus and four powdery iPP fractions, the n-hexane soluble, n-heptane soluble, n-octane soluble, and n-octane insoluble, were collected (1, 11-13).
