The reaction kinetics parameters of shale oils were determined by using a reaction kinetics cell. During the combustion reaction experiments, two different peaks of temperature profiles were observed. The molar CO2/CO ratios increased gradually at low and medium temperatures, and stabilized at high temperatures, especially after the complete combustion. The calorific values of shale oils from Seyitömer, Himmetoǧlu, Hatildaǧ, and Beypazari were 485, 2842, 199, and 440 cal/gr, respectively. The calorific value of Himmetoǧlu oil shale was higher than the oil shales from other sites due to higher amount of organic content. The corresponding combustion temperatures of the aforementioned shale oils were be 575°, 480°, 590°, and 500°C, respectively. Vertical and one-dimensional combustion tube experiments with combustion front formed around 600°-800°C were performed to determine the magnitude of oil recovery from the oil shale samples of four different sites. The resultant oil recoveries from the oil shales of Seyitömer, Himmetoǧlu, Hatildaǧ, and Beypazari were 4.5, 32.2, 18.3, and 24 lt/ton, respectively.

Silicon tetrachloride mediated asymmetric aldol addition reaction
Tan, Duygu; Doğan, Özdemir; Department of Chemistry (2013)
Aldol addition reaction is one of the most important and most studied carbon-carbon bond forming reactions in organic chemistry. Recent studies focused on the catalytic version of this chemistry. Different from the classical Mukaiyama-type aldol reactions, chiral lewis bases have been used as promoters. In the presence of SiCl4, these reactions proceed through a cyclic transition state leading to anti aldol product as a major product with moderate-to-good diastereo and enantioselectivities. Phosphoramide de...
Effect of sodium carbonate on carbothermic formation of hexagonal boron nitride
Akyıldız, Uğur; Sevinç, Naci; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2010)
Effect of Na2CO3 on formation of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) by carbothermic method has been studied by subjecting B2O3-C and Na2CO3-added B2O3-C mixtures to N2 (g) atmosphere. Na2CO3 amount in the mixtures was changed in the range of 0-40 wt. %. Time and temperature were used as experimental variables. Reaction products were analyzed by XRD and scanning electron microscope. Na2CO3 was found to increase both the amount and the particle size of h-BN similar to CaCO3 [1]. Na2CO3 was found to be less effect...
Dehydration of aqueous aprotic solvent mixtures by pervaporation
Sarıalp, Gökhan; Kalıpçılar, Halil; Yılmaz, Levent; Department of Chemical Engineering (2012)
Aprotic solvents are organic solvents which do not easily react with a substance dissolved in it and they do not exchange protons despite of their high ion and polar group dissolving power. Therefore, this characteristic property makes aprotic solvents very suitable intermediates in many industries producing pharmaceuticals, textile auxiliaries, plasticizers, stabilizers, adhesives and ink. Dehydration of these mixtures and recirculation of valuable materials are substantial issues in industrial application...
Effect of solvent choice on cellulose acetate membrane fabrication by phase inversion and deacetylation by alkaline hydrolysis
Tekin, Fatma Seden; Çulfaz Emecen, Pınar Zeynep; Department of Chemical Engineering (2022-8)
In this study, the effect of solvent choice on cellulose acetate (CA) membrane morphology and performance was investigated to relate this to the thermodynamics and kinetics of phase inversion. Three different solvent systems were used, which are dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), the mixture of DMSO: acetone (DA) and DMSO: acetic acid (DHAc) in the ratio of 1:1. Water was used as non-solvent. Acetone and acetic acid were chosen due to their similar solvent quality for cellulose acetate based on Hansen solubility pa...
Kinetic analyses of the effects of temperature and light intensity on growth, hydrogenm production and organic acid utilization by rhodobacter capsulatus
Sevinç, Pelin; Gündüz, Ufuk; Department of Biotechnology (2010)
Effects of temperature and light intensity on photofermentative hydrogen production by Rhodobacter capsulatus DSM1710 by use of acetic and lactic acids as substrates were studied. Experiments were conducted at 20, 30 and 38oC incubator temperatures under light intensities in the 1500 – 7000 lux range. pH of the medium and quantity of hydrogen forming together with quantity of biomass, and concentrations of acetic, lactic, formic, butyric and propionic acids in the medium were determined periodically. Growth...
