Investigating The Nucleation Of Gas Hydrates

Common ice (Ih) floats on top of water because it is less dense than liquid water. The hollow structure of ice can accommodate small gas molecules as "guests" in its cavities under the right temperature and pressure conditions. These crystalline solids in which guests are accommodated by water (hosts) are called gas hydrates or clathrate hydrates. Several lattice structures of gas hydrates form at different temperature and pressure conditions and guest compositions. Both pure (single-component) and mixed (multi-component) gas hydrates...
