Amine Oxide LDHIs
TheseamineoxideproductsincludeKHIs(oligomeric, polymeric or surfactant based)and
AAs (surfactant based) based on cheap raw materials. Biodegradation is moderate for these products(20 – 40%). The KHIs are compatible with fresh water or 3% brine at up to 100 ºC. The oligomeric KHIs are useful for applications up to 8 – 9 ºC subcooling. Further work is needed to optimise the AA products as well as the KHIs for Structure I hydrate systems.
