Materials used include ASTM Standard Reference Blacks (SRB), i.e., A2, B2, C, D, E and F; carbon black samples of different grades (N134, N220, N330, N326, N339, N550, N660 and new generation carbon blacks); non-ionic surfactant (Nonidet P40 [LD] and Triton X-100 [DCP]); ethanol LR grade; dodecane; and demineralized water.
The main components of the hexane extract were 9-octadecenoic acid([omega]-9), 9, 12- octadecadienoic acid (linoleic acid or [omega]- 6), hexadecanoic acid, (palmitic acid), 1,2-benzenedicarboxylic acid diisooctyl, dodecane and [gamma]- linolenic acid.
While chain alkanes (such as branched octane, dodecane, and hexadecane) have previously been derived from cellulose for use in jet fuel, the researchers believe this is the first study to produce more complex polycycloalkane compounds that can be used as high-density aviation fuel.
The Hansen solubility parameters for neat dodecane were used to represent gasoline as the parameters associated with dodecane have been determined to be good representatives of pump grade gasoline (as advised by the Hansen Solubility team) [17].
Dodecane was used as an internal standard for the quantitative analysis of the reaction products.
(4) Dodecane (n[C.sub.12][H.sub.26]) decomposition reactions to [C.sub.12][H.sub.25] are important at both low and moderate temperatures and it is due to the low activation energy of n-dodecane decomposition to [C.sub.12][H.sub.25] isomers.
Alginate, also a carbohydrate, showed consistently small amounts of undecane and dodecane released upon degradation (Fig.
Effective flotation of lignite using a mixture of dodecane and 4-dodecyl-phenol (ddp) as a collector.
Of the 3 chemicals that were classified as non-irritants in the Draize test, only dodecane was classified correctly in all 3 test laboratories.
The 2% PAHs and crude oil utilization by the bacterial isolate using Bacto Bushnell Hass broth was studied using decanol, hexadecane, toluene, dodecane, engine oil, benzene, octane, oleic acid, and naphthalene as sole carbon source and checked for utilization.
Nonetheless, the authors demonstrated detection of 1-octyne within dodecane solvent at [lambda] = 1532nm with a minimal detectable absorption of 0.033 [cm.sup.-1].
