Perrin, Andrea and Goodwin, Melissa J. and Callear, Samantha and Soper, Alan K. and Musa, Osama M. and Steed, Jonathan W. (2018) 'Structures of a clathrate hydrate former, inhibitor, and synergist in water.', Journal of physical chemistry B., 122 (18). pp. 4901-4912.
SANS studies are reported for aqueous THF at the 1:17 clathrate hydrate-forming composition and on aqueous solutions of the synergist 2-butoxyethanol. Addition of the clathrate hydrate inhibitor polyvinylcaprolactam and a dimeric model compound, 1,3-bis(caprolactamyl)butane, show that the inhibitors do not significantly affect the solution structures of these two important species in clathrate hydrate formation and inhibition. The SANS studies show that 1,3-bis(caprolactamyl)butane is a good model for polyvinylcaprolactam, and both the polymer and model compound exhibit hydrogen bonding interactions with water but do not interact significantly with 2-butoxyethanol in aqueous solution.
