Two new articles on applications using electrodialysis

Two new articles have been accepted for publication in the journals Membrane and Desalination, entitled Enhancing Palladium Recovery Rates in Industrial Solutions through Electrodialysis and Selective recovery of ions from copper-contaminated effluents using electrodialysis. The main person behind these articles is PhD-candidate Pauline Zimmermann who ...

New article on membrane distillation

Our new paper entitled A systematic non-equilibrium thermodynamics approach for assessing transport mechanisms in membrane distillation has just been published in Desalination. Membrane distillation (MD) is a promising technique for purifying volatile liquids at temperatures below their boiling points. Our study presents ...

New article on transport numbers in RED

Our new paper entitled Analytical treatment of ion-exchange permselectivity and transport number measurements for high accuracy has been published in the Journal of Membrane Science. In the article, we analyse electromotive force measurements of concentration cells using non-equilibrium thermodynamics, and determine the transference ...

New article on kinetic gas theory for Mie fluids

Our new paper entitled Revised Enskog theory for Mie fluids: Prediction of diffusion coefficients, thermal diffusion coefficients, viscosities and thermal conductivities has been published in the Journal of Chemical Physics. It was also selected as Editor’s pick. Since the 1920s, the Enskog solutions to ...

New article about local equilibrium in liquid phase shock waves

Our new paper entitled Local equilibrium in liquid phase shock waves has been published in Physical Review E. In the article, we assess the assumption of local thermodynamic equilibrium in a shock wave by comparing local thermodynamic data generated with nonequilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD) ...

New article on nucleation theory

Our new paper entitled Free energy of critical droplets—from the binodal to the spinodal has been published in the Journal of Chemical Physics. Arguably, the main challenge of nucleation theory is to accurately evaluate the work of formation of a critical embryo in the ...
