Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from University Erlangen-Nurnberg, "Each of the involved mass transfer paths could be quantified though taking place simultaneously between the three phases: oil, water and CO2. The quantification is based experimentally on the application of an optical long distance microscopy technique which provides information about the CO2 volume shrinkage and the refractive index of the oil phase."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Both parameters allowed the solution of the mass transfer model which considers the mutual interaction of the involved transfer paths."
