Abstract:

BURNETT RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC. PROPOSES TO IDENTIFY AND DEVELOP NEW SURFACTANTS CAPABLE OF EMULSIFYING MOLTEN INTERMOLECULAR EXPLOSIVES (IME'S). TO ACCOMPLISH THIS, WE HAVE FORMED A TEAM OF EXPERTS SKILLED IN THE ART AND SCIENCE OF COLLOIDS AND SURFACE CHEMISTRY. MEMBERS OF THIS TEAM ARE RECOGNIZED EXPERTS IN THE PETROLEUM INDUSTRY. CONTROLLING SOLID/LIQUID DISPERSIONS AND LIQUID/LIQUID EMULSIONS FLUIDS HAVE BEEN PROBLEMS FACED BY THE PETROLEUM INDUSTRY IN TWO PARTICULAR AREAS. FACED WITH PROBLEMS SIMILAR TO THOSE WHO FORMULATE IME'S, PETROLEUM INDUSTRIES SPECIALISTS HAVE DEVELOPED NEW SURFACTANT AND FORMULATION TECHNOLOGY IN DRILLING FLUIDS AND IN OIL RECOVERY PROCESSES. THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY CAN BE TRANSFERRED TO THE SPECIFIC PROBLEMS FACING THOSE WHO DEVELOP IMES. FROM THEIR ESTABLISHED BACKGROUND IN EMULSIONS AND DISPERSIONS TECHNOLOGY, OUR TEAM WILL SEEK TO APPLY THIS KNOWLEDGE TO THE IDENTIFICATION OF NEW SURFACTANTS FUNCTIONAL IN INTERMOLECULAR EXPLOSIVES.
