Humidity sensing properties of chitosan by using quartz crystal microbalance method
(American Scientific Publishers, 2012-03)
Humidity adsorption kinetics of chitosan films was investigated by quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) technique. In this study, chitosan was synthesized from chitin by deacetylation process in 2.0% (v/v) acetic acid solution ...
Adsorption of methylene blue from aqueous solution on high lime fly ash: Kinetic, equilibrium, and thermodynamic studies
(Taylor & Francis, 2012-01)
Kinetic, equilibrium, and thermodynamic studies were performed for the batch adsorption of methylene blue (MB) on the high lime fly ash as a low cost adsorbent material. The studied operating variables were adsorbent amount, ...
A rhodamine/BODIPY-based fluorescent probe for the differential detection of Hg(ii) and Au(iii)
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-02)
We described the design and synthesis of a molecular sensor based on a rhodamine/BODIPY platform that displayed differential fluorescence responses towards Hg2+ and Au3+ and demonstrated its utility in intracellular ion imaging.
Synthesis and characterization of bentonite/iron nanoparticles and their application as adsorbent of cobalt ions
This study reports the synthesis and characterization of iron nanoparticles in the presence of K10 bentonite. Introducing K10 during synthesis of iron nanoparticles resulted in a partial decrease in the aggregation of the ...
Effect of filler amount on thermoelastic properties of poly(dimethylsiloxane) networks
End-linked poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) networks were prepared in the presence of fumed silica particles with hydroxyl groups at their surfaces. The silica particles were introduced into the polymer solution prior to ...
Capacity and mechanism of phenol adsorption on lignite
A raw lignitic coal from Soma, Turkey was investigated to determine its potential as an adsorbent for phenol removal from wastewaters. Kinetic batch tests demonstrated that phenol could be completely removed from solution ...
A radiotracer study of the adsorption behavior of aqueous Ba2+ ions on nanoparticles of zero-valent iron
Recently, iron nanoparticles are increasingly being tested as adsorbents for various types of organic and inorganic pollutants. In this study, nanoparticles of zero-valent iron (NZVI) synthesized under atmospheric conditions ...
Utilization of electrospun polystyrene membranes as a preliminary step for rapid diagnosis
Recent advances in clinical practice drive deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) as an important class of biomarker. Monitoring the change in their concentration suggests the initiation and/or progression of various disorders. ...
Chitosan fiber-supported zero-valent iron nanoparticles as a novel sorbent for sequestration of inorganic arsenic
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2013-06)
This study proposes a new sorbent for the removal of inorganic arsenic from aqueous solutions. Monodispersed nano zero-valent iron (nZVI) particles were nucleated at the surface of electrospun chitosan fibers (average fiber ...
