Enhanced CH4 Hydrate Formation using Hybrid MOF plus Promoter System

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review


Metal-Organic Framework (MOFs) are functional porous material having an open metal site with organic linkers. MOFs are of very low density and high surface area. The application of MOFs in gas hydrate is very recent, and there are many unknown. Due to the high surface area, MOF can improve the gas-liquid interface area, thus total gas stored in the hydrate. In this research, we have used a high-pressure differential scanning calorimeter to investigate the total CH4 gas storage in hydrate in the presence of HKUST-1. Effect of different chemicals, including Amino acids Methionine, Surfactant Sodium dodecyl sulfate, was studied and compared with pure water. Experiments were carried out at constant pressure P = 95-100 bar to investigate total gas capture under different liquid/solid ratio.

Results show improvement in gas storage in hydrate in promoters' presence at a given pressure and L/S ratio. Crystals were found to remain stable over multiple formations and dissociation cycles, suggesting high reusability. Additional discussion will be provided during the presentation.
