Project Description

We aim to combine the photo-chemistry expertise of Dr. Matthew Tarr (University of New Orleans) with the analytical, petroleum emulsion, and data analysis capabilities of Dr. Ryan Rodgers and Dr. Yuri E. Corilo (both Florida State University) to address the following: (1) what interfacially active species are generated during photo-oxidation of oil? (2) what is their effect on stable emulsion formation? (3) How does this composition change with increased irradiation times? (4) What is the predominate oxygen-containing functionality (aldehyde, ketone, hydroxyl, carboxylic acid) that contributes to stable emulsion formation, and how does that change with the initial oil composition?
