Enthalpies of Dissociation of Pure Methane and Carbon Dioxide Gas Hydrate

Authors: Qazi Nasir, K. K. Lau, Bhajan Lal


In this study the enthalpies of dissociation for pure methane and pure carbon dioxide was calculated using a hydrate equilibrium data obtained in this study. The enthalpy of dissociation was determined using Clausius-Clapeyron equation. The results were compared with the values reported in literature obtained using various techniques.

Keywords: Enthalpies of dissociation, methane, carbon dioxide, gas hydrate, natural gas.
