    • Improved CO2 flux by dissolution of oxide ions into the molten carbonate phase of dual-phase CO2 separation membranes 

      Xing, Wen; Li, Zuoan; Peters, Thijs; Fontaine, Marie-Laure; McCann, Michael; Evans, Anna; Norby, Truls Eivind; Bredesen, Rune (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      In a solid-liquid dual-phase CO2 separation membrane, the native ions in the molten alkali carbonate, including carbonate anions and metal cations can transport CO2 in a process that is charge-compensated by electronic ...
    • Kinetic study of vacuum evaporation of elements from ternary melts; case of dilute solution of P in Si-Al melts 

      Hoseinpur Kermani, Arman; Tang, Kai; Safarian, Jafar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      This research is devoted to study phosphorus removal from Si-Al alloys by vacuum refining of the ternary system of dilute solutions of P in Si-20 wt%Al. The experiments were carried out in an induction furnace and after ...
    • P removal from Si by Si-Ca-Al alloying-leaching refining: Effect of Al and the CaAl2Si2 phase 

      Zhu, Mengyi; Yue, Shengying; Wu, Guixuan; Tang, Kai; Xu, Yijiang; Safarian, Jafar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Phosphorus (P) is a critical impurity in metallurgical-grade Si that needed to be removed for solar-grade Si production. The Si-Ca-Al-P system is one of the most crucial alloy systems for Si refining, where P can be separated ...
    • Phosphorus separation from metallurgical-grade silicon by magnesium alloying and acid leaching 

      Zhu, Mengyi; Azarov, Alexander; Monakhov, Eduard; Tang, Kai; Safarian, Jafar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      In this paper, the separation of phosphorus from metallurgical-grade silicon was investigated based on an Mg alloying and HCl leaching approach. Experimental results show that P concentration was reduced from initial 15.1 ...
