Supercritical Fluid-based Study of Molten Sulphur Penetration in Ceramic Materials

It is often required in specialized applications to enable penetration of various types of substances in micropores of substrate materials which could be polymers, ceramics etc. Supercritical fluids (say, carbon dioxide) provide a versatile medium to achieve this process of deposition. The present project involves modeling of penetration of molten sulfur in microporous ceramic materials. The objective is to estimate the time necessary to enable complete filling of the porous structure, in the context of preparation of ceramic grinding wheels with superior qualities.
