    Abstract: Methods of treating a subterranean formation penetrated by a wellbore include providing environmental water, admixing a viscosifying amount of a polymer and at least one divalent cation with the environmental water to form an admixture, and pumping the admixture through the wellbore at a rate and pressure sufficient to treat the subterranean formation. The viscosity of the admixture increases after the at least one divalent cation, the viscosifying amount of polymer and the environmental water are admixed. Such viscosity increase may be at least about 5% over at least a 10 minute period after the admixture is prepared. The divalent cation(s) may be selected from the group consisting of barium, calcium, copper(II), iron(II), magnesium, manganese(II), strontium, tin(II), zinc, and mixtures thereof. Further, the divalent cation(s) may be provided in the form of a salt with one or more anions selected from acetate, bicarbonate, nitrate, chloride, bromide, iodide, sulfate ion, and mixtures thereof.

  • Patent number: 7661628
    Abstract: A high energy, e.g., ultraviolet (UV), catalyzed decomposing foam encapsulating a payload to be boosted in space provides an ultra-light weight, adaptable means to facilitate survival of much lighter, smaller satellites and space hardware under boost environment. The decomposable foam is to contain multiple satellites within a booster payload in lieu of the traditionally heavy and complex structural framework. The catalyzed decomposing foam significantly lowers the weight and structure of all space hardware. This packaging system is especially beneficial where several or even hundreds of satellites are required for a constellation system, thereby significantly benefiting all technologies applied in space, ranging from the telecommunication industry to DOD applications. In addition to weight and cost savings, advantages of this foam are many in that it is adaptable to any payload shape as it may be injected, sprayed, formed, molded, easily cut or manufactured to support any geometry required.

  • Publication number: 20090146107
    Abstract: The present invention discloses an inorganic/organic mixed component (I/O) dispersant and applications thereof, which is primarily applied to dispersing nanoparticles of metal oxides. The I/O dispersant of the present invention can be a composite of inorganic clay and an organic surfactant, a composite of inorganic clay and polyoxyalkylene-amine, or a composite of inorganic clay, polyisobutylene succinic anhydride (PIB-SA) and hydrochloric acid salt or tetraalkyl quaternary salt of polyoxyalkylene-amine, or fatty amines. By mixing with the I/O dispersant of the present invention, nanoparticles of a metal oxide can be uniformly dispersed without aggregation particularly at high solid content. The dispersion has a lower viscosity and is relatively stable in storage even at high temperature.
