Use of bio-nano composites as protective coating on natural stone surfaces
(Izmir Institute of Technology, 2013)
Historical monuments are important heritages to pass cultural values to next generations. Most of the historical monuments were composed of natural stones like marble. SO2 and NOx reacts with marble composed primarily of ...
Sustainable bio-nano composite coatings for the protection of marble surfaces
Water repellency on natural stone surfaces is the most important issue in the protection of stone monuments from effects of atmospheric pollutants. In this study, effectiveness of a bio-nano composite coating, composed of ...
Cure kinetics of epoxy resin-natural zeolite composites
The cure kinetics of epoxy resin and epoxy resin containing 10 mass% of natural zeolite were investigated using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The conformity of the cure kinetic data of epoxy and epoxy-zeolite ...
Exposure to particulate matter in a mosque
Indoor air quality in mosques during prayers may be of concern for sensitive/susceptible sub-groups of the population. However, no indoor air pollutant levels of potentially toxic agents in mosques have been reported in ...
Protection of marble surfaces by using biodegradable polymers as coating agent
Biodegradable polymers have been replaced over the synthetic polymers in many applications due to their good properties such as reversibility and biodegradability. Therefore they allow new treatment on the surface of the ...
Protection of the marble monument surfaces by using biodegradaple polymers
(Izmir Institute of Technology, 2007)
The deterioration of historic buildings and monuments constructed by marble has been accelerated in the past century due to the effects of air pollution. The main pollutant Sulphur dioxide (SO2) reacts with marble composed ...
