Abstract: Enhancement in carbon dioxide absorption in water has been studied using SiO2 and TiO2 nanoparticles using the capillary tube apparatus for which previous results on Fe3O4 nanoparticles were reported earlier. Enhancements of up to 165% in the mass transfer coefficients were observed at fairly low volume fractions of the particles. A model which accounts for the effect of particles in terms of a superimposed convection has been proposed to explain the observed effects of particle size, hold-up, and material den…
