    ABSTRACT: We have obtained hybrid magnetorheological suspensions (MRS-hybrid) consisting of magnetorheological suspension (MRS), magnetorheological elastomer (MRE) and polyurethane sponge foam (PSF). We measure the capacitance and resistance of a plane capacitor based on MRS-hybrid, as a function of frequency f of an electric field superimposed with a magnetic field of intensity H . The relative dielectric permittivity ϵ ′, dielectric loss factor ϵ′′ϵ′′ and electrical conductivity σ are significantly changed when 0.02 ≤ f(kHz) ≤ 200 at H = 0, 100, 200 and 400 kA/m. The static and optical dielectric constants are greatly influenced by the magnetic field intensity. We present and discuss the results using the model of dipolar approximation

    ABSTRACT: The present work proposes that the functionalization of clay with reactive amphiphile can decrease the surface tension of water to increase the pollutant penetration into the clay galleries to enhance the capability of clay to remove both toxic organic and inorganic pollutants from water. Therefore, sodium montmorillonite (Na-MMT) was modified with crosslinked nanogel polymers of N-isopropylacrylamide (NIPAm), sodium 2- acrylamido-2-methylpropane sulfonate (Na-AMPS), acrylamide (AAm) and acrylamidopropyl)trimethylammonium chloride solution ( APTAC) using surfactant free technique. The chemical interactions between nanogels and Na-MMT and their chemical structure were confirmed by FTIR analysis. The intercalation and exfoliation of Na-MMT were confirmed by wide-angle X-ray diffraction. The morphology of nanogel composites was also represented by TEM analysis. The adsorption capacities of the prepared Na-MMT nanogels for methylene blue dye, cobalt and nickel cations from water were investigated. The data indicated that the Na-MMT nanogels reduce the surface tension of water and efficiently remove dye and metal ions from water.

    ABSTRACT: The electrochemical method has been investigated for the synthesis of copper oxide nanoparticles (CuO NPs) under different reaction conditions. The CuO NPs were used as excellent photocatalyst for the degradation of different organic dyes under the illumination of sunlight irradiation. The highest degradation was 93% for methylene blue. The rate constant for MB, MR, and CR was found to be first-order with values 0.02059, 0.02046, and 0.01749 min−1, respectively. The antimicrobial efficiency of CuO NPs was investigated against bacterial strains (Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus) and fungal strains (Aspergillus nigres and Candida albicans).

    ABSTRACT: The adsorption and energetic heterogeneity properties of cesium ion on ion exchange resin were investigated. The adsorption equilibrium isotherm of cesium ion on ion exchange resin could be represented by the Lamgmuir equation. Thermodynamic parameters indicated that adsorption of cesium ion on ion exchange resin was spontaneous and endothermic. Adsorption heterogeneity for the adsorption system of cesium ions on Amberlite IR 120 increased with increasing temperature and decreasing pH. A model based on linear driving force approximation was used for simulating the adsorption behavior of cesium ions in a fixed bed adsorber.

    ABSTRACT: Zeolite SAPO-34 was used for fabrication of mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) to improve the CO2/CH4/N2 gas separation performance of the neat Pebax1074 membrane. Permeability and selectivity of the MMMs were studied at different temperatures of 25-65 °C and pressures of 4-24 bars. Also sorption of different gases in MMMs was measured at 35 °C and different pressures, which showed enhanced solubility coefficients. Moreover, thermal, morphological and mechanical properties of MMMs were characterized by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), scanning electron microscope (SEM) and tensile analysis. The results showed excellent improvement in CO2/CH4 selectivity (about 70%) and CO2/N2 selectivity (about 15%) at 20 wt% SAPO-34 loading.

    ABSTRACT: Mesoporous thiol-functionalized SBA-15 was investigated as a microcolumn packed material for the on-line preconcentration of trace amounts of Pb(II) and Cd(II) in water samples before their flame AAS determination. The results indicated that the proposed method was tolerant to the coexistence ions, offered good linearity and the achievable enhancement factors were 34 for Pb(II) and 41 for Cd(II), and the detection limits (3σ) of 0.22 μg L−1 and 0.11 μg L−1 and the precision (RSD) for 11 replicate determination of 30 μg L−1 Pb(II) and 20 μg L−1Cd(II) were 0.4% and 0.3%, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: A novel synergic adsorption process of acid blue 80 dye (AB80) and heavy metal ions (Cu2+ or Ni2+) on a low-cost activated carbon (PRAC) which was prepared from potato residue was reported. The results indicated that the maximum adsorption capacity of PRAC for AB80 and Cu2+ were 294.7 mg/g and 45.0 mg/g in the AB80-Cu2+ system, respectively. In the mono-component system, the values were 173.0 mg/g and 26.8 mg/g, respectively. Compared with mono-component system, the AB80 and Cu2+ showed good synergistic effect on PRAC. The similarly result was revealed in the AB80-Ni2+ system. For a binary system, the adsorption isotherm of AB80 and heavy metal ions followed the non-modified Sips model, and the adsorption kinetic models followed the pseudo-second order kinetic model. The effect of pH also was discussed, and showed significant role in the binary-component system adsorption. The selectivity in synergic adsorption was discussed. BET, FE-SEM/EDX and XPS were used to characterize PRAC with and without adsorbed dye and heavy metal ions, possible mechanisms of AB80 and heavy metal ions synergic adsorption process were proposed.

    ABSTRACT: Analogous to the coal-water slurry (CWS) gasification technology, the pitch-water slurry (PWS) gasification technology was proposed to gasify pitch with high softening point from the deasphalting unit. The PWS gasification behavior in both downdraft single-nozzle (DSB) and opposed multi-nozzle (OMB) entrained-flow gasifiers were predicted by a three-dimensional numerical model based on Eulerian-Lagrangian method. The flow, temperature, and species mole fraction distributions indicated that PWS was a good feedstock for gasification. The contributions of different competing reactions to the oxygen and fixed carbon consumption were quantitatively analyzed to compare the gasification performances between DSB and OMB gasifiers.

    ABSTRACT: A novel grafted sulfonated alkali lignin polymers (GSAL) with hydrophilic side chain and different molecular weights prepared were used as dispersants for coal-water slurry (CWS). The viscosity reduction for CWS had been attributed primarily to the diminution of coal particles (adsorbed GSAL) interaction of steric electrostatic repulsion and dramatic wettability. The adsorption amount of GSAL-3 can reach to 1.58 mg/g, and the isotherm of GSAL on coal surface belongs to the Langmuir model, the electrostatic self-assembly result indicated the dominant driving force of GSAL absorbed on coal surface was the π-π interaction. GSAL was superior in reducing the viscosities of CWS.

    ABSTRACT: We investigate relation between hydrodynamic transport properties of a colloidal suspension of magnetite particles and aggregation of the particles. The magnetite particles are of 0.3 μm in diameter and are dispersed in Newtonian ethylene glycol. The volume fraction of the particles in the suspension ranges from 0.003 to 0.04. Shear viscosity and average sedimentation velocity of the suspension are measured as a function of the particle volume fraction. To predict the aggregation of the suspended particles particle-scale analysis of sedimentation and viscosity behavior of the suspension is correlated with scaling theories for fractal aggregates. The sedimentation velocity as a function of particle concentration gives the fractal dimension of 1.91 for the magnetite aggregates in the suspension. Shear dependence of the aggregate size which is expressed by a power law is determined from intrinsic viscosity for the aggregates and yield stress of the suspension, respectively. It is found that the shear dependence from intrinsic viscosity is in good agreement with that from yield stress.

    ABSTRACT: A potentially economical and ecofriendly way of hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) production was developed on the basis of a waste of banana peel and Fenton reaction. An optimal process condition was obtained by examining the effects of three key parameters including amount of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), amount of ferrous (Fe2+) ion, and reaction time on HMF yield. This study may offer an alternative route for HMF production, indeed a sustainable one in that it makes the best use of a problematic bio-waste and also takes advantage of the simple nature of the Fenton process.

    ABSTRACT: Methyl acrylate connects covalently with alkylpyridinium bromide to build N-alkyl-3-(2-methoxycarbonyl-vinyl)pyridinium bromide (MPA-n, n = 8-14). MPA-n inhibited X70 steel from corrosion in 5 M HCl with inhibition efficiency of 98% and the inhibition capacity was in the order of MPA-14 > MPA-12 > MPA-10 > MPA-8. Quantum chemical calculation unveiled that MPA-n adsorbed on iron surface by O atom in MA moiety offering electrons to d orbital of iron and by π* orbital of pyridinium accepting electrons from iron, and MPA-n with longer alkylchain possessed higher EHOMO, lower ΔE, larger molecular volume and dipole moment, all suggesting the same corrosion inhibition order as that in experiments.

    ABSTRACT: In this work, the solution and diffusion properties of n-heptane, thiophene, 2-methylthiophene, 2,5-dimethylthiophene, ethyl sulfide, butyl mercaptan in poly[bis(phenoxy)phosphazene] (PBPP) were studied by inverse gas chromatography. The infinite dilute activity coefficients and diffusion coefficients were determined. Effects of temperatures and solvent species on the activity coefficients and diffusion coefficients were investigated. The results showed that higher temperature was beneficial for both solution and diffusion process. Compared with pervaporation desulfurization performance in our previous work, the order of infinite dilute diffusion coefficients was in agreement with that of partial flux, which indicated that diffusion decided the permeability within solution-diffusion model.

    ABSTRACT: Silica supported molybdenum oxide modified with phosphoric acid (P/Mo/SiO2) is a very active solid acid catalyst in ortho-xylene nitration. At room temperature and with a small excess of fuming nitric acid, ortho-xylene conversion is 79 wt%. In nitration with 65% HNO3 at 80 °C and with fivefold molar excess of acid, almost complete ortho-xylene conversion is achieved. The P/Mo/SiO2 is also an excellent catalyst for nitration in the continuous process with using 65% HNO3 under solventless conditions. Hence, the process is eco-friendly, cheaper and leads to 60 wt% of selectivity to 4-nitro-ortho-xylene with ca. 90 wt% conversion for long time.
