3rd quarter

Recipient Name:Ryerson University
Location:Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Purpose:The proposed experiments aim at better understanding the isothermal diffusion and thermodiffusion phenomena in multicomponent systems with important applications in the petroleum, energy and biomedical sectors. At several European Universities, Ryerson University and the Russian Academy of Sciences, we have developed thermodiffusion theories for binary mixtures. We wish to extend our theories and models to ternary mixtures, using the new experimental data to be obtained in space.
