  Using nanoparticles for adsorbing asphaltene is an efficient method for upgrading actual oil samples compared to other expensive mechanical treatments or even solvents, such as n-pentane and n-heptane, and surfactants. This study uses nickel–zeolite oxide nanoparticles for asphaltene adsorption ...  Read More
