Heat capacities and thermodynamic functions of neodymia and samaria doped ceria
Doped ceria materials are ionic conductors currently under investigation for use in solid oxide fuel cells, catalysts, and other applications. We measured the heat capacity of several doped ceria samples from 1.8 K to 300 ...
Thermodynamics of hydrolysis of cellulose to glucose from 0 to 100 °C: Cellulosic biofuel applications and climate change implications
Hydrolysis of cellulose to glucose is a key reaction in renewable energy from biomass and in mineralization of soil organic matter to CO2. Conditional thermodynamic parameters, ΔhydG’, ΔhydH’, and ΔhydS’, and equilibrium ...
Laws of evolution parallel the laws of thermodynamics
We hypothesize that concepts from thermodynamics and statistical mechanics can be used to define summary statistics, similar to thermodynamic entropy, to summarize the convergence of processes driven by random inputs subject ...
Molecular interpretation of low-temperature heat capacity of aliphatic oligo-urethane
The low-temperature heat capacity of semi-crystalline aliphatic oligo-urethane obtained from the reaction between butane-1,4-diol and hexamethylene 1,6-diisocyanate was measured using a Quantum Design PPMS (Physical Property ...
