Abstract The porous microstructure of hydrates governs the mechanical strength of the hydrate-bearing sediment. To investigate the growth law and microstructure of hydrates in porous media, the growth process of tetrahydrofuran THF hydrate under different concentration of THF solution is directly observed using Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRI. The images show that the THF hydrate grows as different models under different concentration of THF solution 19%, 11.4% and 5.7% by weight at 1 °C. When the concentration is 19% stoichiometric molar ratio of THF-H2O = 1:17, the THF hydrate grows as cementing model. However, with the decreasing concentration of THF, the growth model transfers from cementing model to floating model. The results show that the growth of the THF hydrate was influenced by the dissolved quantity of THF in the water. The extension of the observed behavior to methane hydrate could have implications in understanding their role in seafloor and permafrost stability. View Full-Text
