The stability and dynamics of clathrate hydrates

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The thermodynamic stability of a clathrate hydrate encaging nonspherical ethane molecule has been investigated by examining the free energy of cage occupancy. A generalized van der Waals and Platteeuw theory is extended in order to treat rotational motions of guest molecules in the clathrate hydrate cages.
