Effect of porous media on phase transition in hydrocarbons

  • 20 Accesses

  • 2 Citations


The results of an experimental investigation of the condensation of propane, isobutane, butane, and ethane in porous bulk media are given. The presence of the liquid phase is observed at a pressure considerably lower than the saturated-vapor pressure.
