In this report we will show the progressofthe project, understanding and some important ideas that have been developed along the way for the past two months. Surfactants are very important in providing strategies for Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery (CEOR). The idea behind this project is to modify the surfactant from inedible fatty acid of jatropha oil by epoxidation. Surfactant can reduce the interfacial tension (IFT) ofwater from 72 mN/m to 0.001 mN/m. To do so, the chemistry of surfactant is analyzed to understand way to modify the surfactant. Initial selection of surfactants is based upon desirable surmctant structure. The characterization of the surfactant will be study in few mannerswhichare IFT that comprised ofGC, HPLC, GC-MS and spinning drop method. This report will show the analysis of microemulsion testing and IFT measurement of Natural Surfactant. The degree of improvement by using Natural Surfactant is compared with few standard bench marks (oil-water IFT value, types ofcrude oil and commercial surfactants). It is been evaluated quantatively and qualitatively throughout the experiment. In this paper, IFT of Natural Surfactant is investigated in many ways and methods, and some interesting conclusions are obtained, which will make an important effect on research of SMART Surfactant (Natural Surfactant) theory. Besides, it also includes investigating the reason of ultra-low interfacial tensions and providing suggestions on designing formulations for practical application.
