Summary of "Characterization of Ethoxylated Alcohols in Friction Reducers using Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization - Time-of-Flight - Mass Spectrometry."

Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS) provides detailed information for the analysis of ethoxylated alcohols and polymers. In this study, five friction reducers used in commercial hydraulic fracturing processes were analyzed in their as-received form to identify their ethoxylated alcohol content. The friction reducers were then subjected to lab-simulated downhole conditions. Characterization of friction reducers before and after being subjected to reactive conditions can provide fingerprints associated with produced oilfield waste for source apportionment and information on the stability of these key hydraulic fracturing additives.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Alkyl compounds containing a hydroxyl group. They are classified according to relation of the carbon atom: primary alcohols, R-CH2OH; secondary alcohols, R2-CHOH; tertiary alcohols, R3-COH. (From Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed)

A mass spectrometric technique that is used for the analysis of large biomolecules. Analyte molecules are embedded in an excess matrix of small organic molecules that show a high resonant absorption at the laser wavelength used. The matrix absorbs the laser energy, thus inducing a soft disintegration of the sample-matrix mixture into free (gas phase) matrix and analyte molecules and molecular ions. In general, only molecular ions of the analyte molecules are produced, and almost no fragmentation occurs. This makes the method well suited for molecular weight determinations and mixture analysis.

Usually high-molecular-weight, straight-chain primary alcohols, but can also range from as few as 4 carbons, derived from natural fats and oils, including lauryl, stearyl, oleyl, and linoleyl alcohols. They are used in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, detergents, plastics, and lube oils and in textile manufacture. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 5th ed)

Therapy assisted by the use of a horse and/or its movement, including equine-assisted psychotherapy, horseback riding, and hippotherapy.

Alcohols derived from the aryl radical (C6H5CH2-) and defined by C6H5CHOH. The concept includes derivatives with any substituents on the benzene ring.
