Nanoparticle-doped surfactants

Applied Research in Nanoparticle-doped Surfactants

Nanoparticles can significantly alter surfactant behaviour and enhance some of its properties.

Nanoparticle-doped surfactants:

  • increase foam stabilization
  • reduce interfacial tension
  • alter wettability
  • reduce viscosity

We focus on oil and gas industry to develop surfactants with targeted and specific alterations in surface wettability to yield improvements in enhanced oil recovery.
