Volume 4, Issue 4 , October 2015, , Pages 50-66

http://dx.doi.org/10.22050/ijogst.2016.12479

Abstract
  Efforts to enhance oil recovery through wettability alteration by nanoparticles have been attracted in recent years. However, many basic questions have been ambiguous up until now. Nanoparticles penetrate into pore volume of porous media, stick on the core surface, and by creating homogeneous water-wet ...  Read More
