How polymer additives reduce the pour point of hydrocarbon solvents containing wax crystals. Physical chemistry chemical physics : PCCP, 17(6), (4107-4117). doi:10.1039/c4cp04329d. ISSN 1463-9076

We have investigated how four different pour point depressant (PPD) polymers affect the pour point transition in mixtures of a single pure wax in a solvent. We used either n-eicosane (C20), CH3(CH2)18CH3, n-tetracosane (C24), CH3(CH2)22CH3 or n-hexat... Read More
