Abstract

The process of gas hydrate formation and dissociation in a pressurized solution has been studied, using a specially designed experimental apparatus. It was found that the phase behavior showed a typical hysteresis due to the kinetic process of hydrate formation and dissociation, and that the environmental conditions for hydrate nucleation were mainly affected by the states of liquid phase. The mechanism of nucleation and crystal growth, of gas hydrate is also discussed based on the change in the clustering structure of the liquid phase.
