Elemental and spectroscopic characterization of fractions of an acidic extract of oil sands process water.
'Naphthenic acids' (NAs) in petroleum produced water and oil sands process water (OSPW), have been implicated in toxicological effects. However, many are not well characterized. A method for fractionation of NAs of an OSPW ...
Diamondoid diacids ('O4' species) in oil sands process-affected water.
RATIONALE: As a by-product of oil sands extraction, large volumes of oil sands process water (OSPW) are generated, which are contaminated with a large range of water-soluble organic compounds. The acids are thought to be ...
