Industrial-scale capture, storage, and transport of gases and gas mixtures, such as natural gas, CH4, and CO2, in the form of gas hydrate is an attractive and feasible solution. However, low formation rate and low water-to-hydrate conversion make it challenging to adopt at commercial scale. Selection of an appropriate chemical as hydrate promoter is crucial to the success of such technologies. Amino acids are seen as potential chemicals to use in such applications due to their environment-friendly nature. However, there are uncertainties around their behavior and classification, since their thermodynamic and kinetic effects on gas hydrates are not widely studied. In this study, we have identified the thermodynamics and kinetics of select amino acids (L-valine, L-methionine, L-histidine, and L-arginine) in methane hydrate formation and dissociation.
