Abstract [en]

This study is devoted to the detailed in situ Raman spectroscopy investigation of propane C3H8 in laserheated diamond anvil cells in the range of pressures from 3 to 22 GPa and temperatures from 900 to 3000 K. We show that propane, while being exposed to particular thermobaric conditions, could react, leading to the formation of hydrocarbons, both saturated and unsaturated as well as soot. Our results suggest that propane could be a precursor of heavy hydrocarbons and will produce more than just sooty material when subjected to extreme conditions. These results could clarify the issue of the presence of heavy hydrocarbons in the Earth’s upper mantle.

Abstract [en]

Nowadays, the issue of global warming and related environmental problems got widespread awareness among scientific society, politics, the industry as well as it has affected our everyday life. The reason for such a negative impact on the atmosphere is attributed mainly to human activities. It is thought that one of the most dangerous greenhouse gases is carbon dioxide (CO2). Nevertheless, the problem of hydrocarbon emissions began to receive particular attention due to the exponential growth of methane emissions in the atmosphere. What is the reason for such behaviour and what about other hydrocarbons, first of all, ethane, propane and butane isomers? In this work, it was proposed that geological emissions, mainly the emission from the dissociation of natural gas hydrates is one of the main reasons for the dramatic rise in hydrocarbon emissions to the atmosphere. Natural gas hydrates are not only composed of methane and water cages but have in their structure a broad range of hydrocarbons, including ethane, propane, butanes and some others. 

The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the sources of non-methane volatile hydrocarbons in the atmosphere, examine their impact on the environment and explore the correlation of hydrocarbon emissions with CO2 emissions. 

To reveal the impact of natural gas hydrates to the hydrocarbon budget it was assumed, that hydrocarbons that are contributing to the natural gas hydrate formation have deep mantle origin. To confirm this hypotheses high-pressure high temperature investigation of propane and butanes were conducted. The results of this investigation are presented in this thesis. To model extreme thermobaric conditions the diamond-anvil cell technique with two-sided laser heating was used. The method of Raman spectroscopy was applied for the analysis. 

The results received show that propane and butane isomers stable in the pressure  up to 40 GPa at ambient temperature. Propane remains stable at temperatures up to 900 K. At temperatures >900 K chemical transformations of propane are starting to occur producing mixture of light alkanes.

Abstract [sv]

I dagens samhälle har global uppvärmning och relaterade miljöproblem blivit en högst aktuell fråga inom vetenskap, politik, näringsliv samt påverkat vår vardag på individnivå. Den huvudsakliga anledningen till den negativa påverkan på atmo-sfären tillskrivs mänskliga aktiviteter. Man tror att en av de farligaste växthusgaserna är koldioxid (CO2). Ändå har problemet med kolväteutsläpp fått särskild uppmärksamhet på grund av den exponentiella tillväxten av metanutsläpp i atmosfären. Vilka är orsakerna bakom detta fenomen, samt hur står det till med andra kolvätens påverkan: etan, propan och butanisomerer? En huvudhypotes i denna avhandling är att geologiska utsläpp, främst utsläpp som har att göra med dissociation av naturgashydrat, är en av de främsta orsakerna till den dramatiska ökningen av kolväteutsläpp till atmosfären. Naturgashydrater består inte bara av metan- och vattenburar, utan har ett brett spektrum av kolväten (in-klusive etan, propan, butaner och några andra) i sin struktur. Syftet med denna avhandling är att undersöka källor till flyktiga icke-metan kolväten i atmosfären, samt undersöka deras påverkan på miljön och undersöka korrelationen mellan kolväteutsläpp och koldioxidutsläpp. För att avslöja effekterna av naturgashydrater på kolvätebudgeten, antogs det i denna avhandling att kolväten som bidrar till naturgashydratbildningen har sitt ursprung i djupmanteln. För att bekräfta denna hypotes genomfördes en högtrycksundersökning av propan och butaner under hög temperatur. Resultatet av undersökningen presenteras i denna avhandling. För att modellera extrema termobariska förhållanden tillämpas en diamant-städcellteknik med dubbelsidig laseruppvärmning. I analysen till-lämpas metoden för Raman-spektroskopi. Resultaten visar att propan och butaner är stabila i tryckområdet 3-22 GPa vid omgivningstemperatur. Propan förblir stabil vid temperaturer upp till 900 K. Vid temperaturer> 900 K börjar kemiska transformationer av propan att ge en blandning av lätta alkaner.
