Properties of Enhanced Fluidity Liquid Mixtures

When a liquefied gas is added to an associated solvent, the viscosity of the resultant mixture decreases. For example, Figure 1 shows the variation in the viscosity of methanol-CO2 and solute diffusivity as a function of the proportion of added CO2 at 25°C. The addition of 50% v/v CO2 causes the viscosity of the mixture to lower to a value that is approximately 70% of the viscosity of methanol. The viscosity, of a liquid is typically inversely related to the diffusion coefficient of a solute at infinite dilution, D12, as described in eqn [1]:

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
