New Article Acceptance: Transport phenomena and evaporation on interface of gas-liquid by Reversed-Flow Gas Chromatography
I have received notice that my review article titled Transport phenomena and evaporation on interface of gas-liquid by Reversed-Flow Gas Chromatography will be published by Asian Journal of Chemistry. The web page for the journal follows: http://www.asianjournalofchemistry.co.in/Home.aspx No date as to when the article will be published but it should be this fall. Listed below is the abstract for the journal article to give those interested an indication of what the article is about.
interface plays a major interest in environmental studies especially when the
researchers are interested to study the diffusion coefficients and rate coefficients
of the liquid under studies into the chosen carrier gas. The study of the
gas-liquid interface by Reversed-Flow Gas Chromatography (RF-GC) is based on Ficks
first law in one dimensional and Henry’s law. Based on the two laws, an
extensive works have been done previously by using Reversed-Flow Gas
Chromatography (RF-GC) methodologies to determine physiochemical properties on
the gas-liquid interface. The setup for this method is just by modifying the
commercial gas chromatography by including diffusion column which orientated
right angle to the sampling which carried the carried gas. The bottom part
consists of the glass bottle which holds the liquid under studies. The usage of
six-port or four-port valves play a major role in this methodologies since the
equipment allows the carrier gas to reverse and retain its original flow from
time to time and thus creating a ‘sample peak’ which sits on the continuous
signal versus time chromatogram. The diffusion column which contains stagnant
carrier gas accounts for the stationary phase and thus contributes to the
physiochemicals phenomena of the interface. This methodology can be considered
as fast sampling procedure as compared to the others in term of determining
rate coefficients and diffusion coefficients of liquid sample into the carrier
gas. The methods not only important in environmental investigation but also can
be applied in the area of material science, food chemistry, nanotechnology,
biological science and chemical technology.
This is my first ISI published paper and Alhamdulillah I have already fulfill the requirement for master degree graduation in University of Malaya.
