2016 : Optical Methods to Investigate the Enhancement Factor of an 2 Oxygen-Sensitive Colorimetric Reaction Using Microreactors

Visualization of mass transfer is a powerful tool to improve understanding of local phenomenon. The use of an oxygen-sensitive dye (colorimetric technique) (Dietrich et al., Chem Eng Sci. 2013; 100:172–182) has showed its relevancy for locally visualizing and characterizing gas–liquid mass transfer at different scales (Kherbeche et al., Chem Eng Sci. 2013; 100: 515–528; Yang et al., […]

2015 : FAST MEASUREMENTS OF GAS-LIQUID DIFFUSION COEFFICIENT IN THE GAUSSIAN WAKE OF A SPHERICAL BUBBLE

    By : N. DIETRICH, J. FRANCOIS, M. JIMENEZ, A. COCKX, P. GUIRAUD, G. HEBRARD  Abstract: A fast method is proposed for determining the oxygen gas-liquid diffusion coefficient from measurements of the fluorescence quenching behind a bubble. The approach consists of capturing pictures of concentration field at micro-scale in the laminar bubble wake. The […]
