Article
Among notable catalytic assisted processes by ceria-abased materials are the production reactions of H2 and CO from solar thermochemical splitting of water and carbon dioxide, respectively, for applications pertinent to hydrogen fuel cell and synthesis of syngas. Doping ceria with isovalent cations, most notably Zr, was shown to enhance the yiel...
Article
Ignition delay times of primary alcohols often display a noticeable sensitivity to their initial reactions with HO2 radicals. In view of the transient nature of HO2 radicals, kinetic models on combustion of alcohols utilize theoretically-obtained constant parameters for the abstraction HO2 + alcohols reactions. Rate constants for the title reaction...

Cooling of cold storage space in hot climates consumes significant amounts of energy, which can be conserved with the help of thermal insulators. The main goal of this study is to conduct a life-cycle cost (LCC) analysis over a period of 10 years in order to determine the optimum insulation thickness (OIT), energy saving, and pay-back period for mi...
Article
This contribution reports density functional theory (DFT) calculations on structural and electronic properties of bulk and surfaces of cobalt molybdenum oxide CoMoO4-II; i.e., a material that enjoys a wide array of chemical catalytic and optical applications. Estimated lattice constants and atomic charges for bulk CoMoO4-II reproduce limited analog...
Article
El-Lajjun oil shale fly ash formation and S retention during in-furnace limestone injection were investigated in this work. Staged air-firing and 27% O2/CO2 combustion was performed at 1200 °C in a vertical once through reactor. Ash samples were collected at 2.5 m far from the burner and from the conductive section of the reactor. Limestone was add...

Electric arc furnace dust (EAFD) is a toxic waste which is mainly rich in iron oxide, zinc, and lead. Hydrometallurgical extraction of zinc from Jordanian EAFD in alkaline medium was investigated; NaOH, NaHCO3, and Na2CO3 were used as leaching agents. The pH values for the prepared solutions were 8.3, 8.2, and 12.55 for NaHCO3, Na2CO3, and NaOH, re...
Article
In this work, the annual performance of single basin single slope, double slope and pyramidal shaped solar stills has been investigated experimentally and theoretically. Experiments were conducted in Ma'an area in Jordan throughout the year from January 2015 to December 2015 on clear days using solar stills with different orientations and different...

The aim of this paper was to study the effect of tribenzylamine and pyridine on the kinetics of the hydrolysis reaction of benzoyl chloride in water-dioxane solution. The benzoyl chloride and water initial concentrations were 0.005 and 1 mol/L, respectively. While, the initial concentrations of pyridine and tribenzylamine varied in the range of 0.0...
Article
A high sulfur content in Jordanian oil shale is considered one of the biggest challenges preventing its full utilization. To resolve this issue, direct limestone injection during staged combustion has been investigated for the simultaneous control of NO and SO2 emissions. Staged El-Lajjun oil shale combustion under oxyfuel conditions and convention...

The goal of this paper is to investigate the removal of iron and copper from aqueous solutions using adsorption. Zeolitic tuff and kaolin were used as adsorbents and were collected from different areas in Jordan. Batch adsorption experiments using synthetic Fe3+ and Cu2+ solutions were employed to study the effects of adsorbent dose, initial concen...

This paper examines the enhancement in the properties of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) reinforced by graphene nanoplates (GNPs). TPE is a blend of polypropylene (PP), natural rubber (NR) and liquid natural rubber (LNR), which is used as a compatibiliser at a percentage of volume ratio 70:10:20, respectively. Using TPE as the host matrix, TPE/GNPs n...

A wide variety of semi-volatile organic chemicals (SVOCs) are still in use in agricultural practices. A proper understanding of the environmental fate and ecotoxicological risk associated with these compounds can aid decision making, particularly regarding product registration and licensing. The aim of this paper is to expand the use of a previousl...

The main object of this study was to study the effect of pyridine, 2-methyl pyridine, 3-methyl pyridine, 2,6-dimethyl pyridine, quinoline and tribenzylamine on the hydrolysis kinetics of benzoyl chloride in water-dioxane solutions. The investigation has been made by means of gas-liquid chromatography measurements. Almost equal rate constants have b...

Thesis
Full-text available
Modeling the fate and transport of non-volatile organic chemicals (NVOCs) in the agricultural environment have yet to be established despite of the large number of fate and transport studies have been carried out worldwide on different types of chemicals on various scales and environments. This study is aimed to provide a simple technique and a gen...

There is wide acceptance of the hypothesis that links health effects with the presence of atmospheric suspended particles. The goal of this paper was to study the elemental analysis of atmospheric particles in the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) campus. Sampling was performed in one of UKM's students resident areas called college Zaa'ba. Sampl...
Article
Many pesticides used in agricultural activities are considered environmentally non-volatile. The main purpose of this paper is to develop multimedia model to be used as a tool to predict the overall fate and transport of non-volatile organic chemicals (NVOCs) dynamic in the agro-ecosystem. The model was developed based on the EQuilibrium Criterion...
Article

A Multimedia Agricultural Model (MAM) for predicting the fate and transport of Non-Volatile Organic Chemicals (NVOCs) in the agricultural environment was presented. It is an expanded and modified version of the three compartmental model introduced by Batiha and co-authors in 2007, which is an aquivalence-based level IV. MAM considered five environm...
Article
Full-text available
Multimedia dynamic model of the fate of non-volatile organic chemicals (NVOC) in the agricultural environment is described. The modeled environment, consisting of up to three major surfaces environmental compartments, includes air, agricultural soil, and surface water. This model is based on the aquivalence approach suggested by Mackay and co-worke...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The basic regularities of formaldehyde destruction in surface barrier discharge (SBD) are discussed. Main products of destruction (carbon oxides and water) are less toxic as compared to formaldehyde. The efficiency of formaldehyde destruction (a) is maximal in a reactors with coaxial electrodes geometry and depends on a contact time of air with pla...
