Brian Greenhalgh joined ExxonMobil Chemicals as an experienced hire in 2015. Since that time he has focused on the development and application of thermodynamic models in support of polymer R&D and Manufacturing. He has experience with solution, gas phase, high pressure and slurry processes, and serves a technical resource in Thermodynamics across the corporation. Prior to joining ExxonMobil, Brian worked with NOVA Chemical in Canada as a research engineer. His formal education includes a B.Sc. in Chemistry from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, and a Post-Doctoral Studies at Natural Resources Canada in Ottawa. He has also taught engineering courses at the University of Ottawa and the University of Calgary.
This presentation is divided into two parts. The first examines some interesting aspects of familiar ideas in Thermodynamics, while the second applies these to the manufacturing of polymers in solution and gas phase
