Physical Properties of Hydrates

Abstract

Physical properties include: molar mass, density, enthalpy of fusion, heat capacity, and thermal conductivity. Comparisons are made with the properties of ice. Also given in this chapter is a discussion of the volume of gas trapped inside the hydrate solid.

In the design of processes, the physical properties are important. This is no less true when the processes involve hydrates. Some of the properties of hydrates were reviewed in the previous chapters. This chapter focuses on properties that were not covered earlier.
The estimation of the properties of hydrates is complicated by the fact that the properties depend on: (1) the type of the ...
