Title Microscopic observations of bitumen spreading at gas bubble surfaces
Date 1995
Description Bitumen spreading at gas bubble surfaces was observed through a stereoscopic microscope for Whiterocks oil sand samples submerged in alkaline solutions. This phenomenon was also observed for model systems where air bubbles were placed al the surface of bitumen-coated quartz slide. Finally, the film pressure for bitumen films spreading at the aqueous phase surface was measured as a function of pH with the Wilhelmy plate technique.
