adsorption studies of polyacrylamides in porous media

Adsorption studies of polyacrylamides in porous media

Adsorption of polyacrylamides having molecular weights from 300,000 to 8,000,000 onto porous media was studied by a flow rate reduction method and concentration depletion using colored samples. The observed kinetics are very slow, and maximal coverage is attained for very low bulk concentration in a quasi-irreversible manner.

An Experimental Study on Hydrodynamic Retention of Low

Polymers are often added with water as a viscosifier to improve oil recovery from hydrocarbon reservoirs. Polymer might be lost wholly or partially from the injected polymer solution by adsorption on the grain surfaces, mechanical entrapment in pores, and hydrodynamic retention in stagnant zones. Therefore, having a clear picture of polymer losses (and retention) is very important for
