Gas hydrate adhesion to mineral surfaces

William J. Leith, Zachary M. Aman, Amadeu K. Sum & Carolyn A. Koh
Hydrates are crystalline inclusion compounds, where water forms cages that encage 'guest molecules' (typically hydrocarbons). The amount of energy stored in gas hydrates is estimated to be twice that of traditional fossil fuels. These deposits are found below the permafrost and under the ocean floor in contact with sediments. Therefore, this work aims to characterize adhesion force between gas hydrate quartz and calcite surfaces and relate adhesion force to chemical and physical properties of minerals.
