High temperature chemistry of some borophosphates, phase relations and structural studies

Seyyidoğlu, Semih
The solid state, hydrothermal and flux methods were used for the investigation of alkaline earth and transition metal borophosphate compounds. The products and the phase relations were investigated by XRD, IR, DTA, and EDX methods. The solid state reactions of several boron compounds with different phosphating agents have been studied in the temperature range of 400-1200 oC. Hydrothermal and flux techniques were performed at 150 oC and 1200 oC, respectively. On the other hand, an attempt has been made to prepare a novel borophosphate compound MIIMIV[BPO7] (where MIV= Zr4+, Si4+, and MII= Sr2+, Ca2+) by solid state reactions and to investigate intermediate and final products. (NH4)2HPO4 and NH4H2PO4 were used as a phosphating agent. For the synthesis of these new compounds, the following reaction was predicted using the stoichiometric amount of the reactants: 2MIVO2 + 2MIICO3 + B2O3 + 2(NH4)2HPO4 ? 2MIIO.MIVO2.B2O3.P2O5 + 4NH3 + 3H2O + 2CO2 (According to IUPAC formulation for the compounds composed of oxides) In the case of MIV=Zr4+ and MII=Sr2+, the formation of ZrSr[BPO7] was observed together with ZrO2 and SrBPO5. The formation of a new phase was proved by indexing the XRD pattern of the product after separating ZrO2 and SrBPO5 lines. Its crystal system was found to be orthorhombic and the unit cell parameters are a=11.85Å, b=12.99 Å, c=17.32 Å. IR analysis shows that there is [BPO7]6- bands in the spectrum. At higher temperatures, Sr7Zr(PO4)6 was obtained. In the case of MIV=Si4+, SrBPO5 was the main product together with unreacted SiO2. At 1100 oC, Si4+ entered SrBPO5 structure and the product was indexed in orthorhombic system with a=8.9243 Å, b=13.1548 Å, and c=5.4036 Å. Several other M:B:P ratios were tried for solid state systems. For compositions with different cations (such as Al3+, Ca2+, Na+), reactions generally pass through metal phosphates and

Yılmaz, Ayşen; Bu, XH; Kizilyalli, M; Kniep, R; Stucky, GD (Elsevier BV, 2001-02-01)
Single crystals of Co-3[BPO7],I were obtained by boron flux method and characterized by single-crystal diffraction data. The compound crystallizes in the monoclinic space group Cm with 9.774(2), b = 12.688(2), c = 4.9057(8) Angstrom, beta = 119.749(2)degrees; V= 528.20(15) Angstrom (3); Z = 4. The structure consists of Co in trigonal bipyramids, square pyramids, and distorted octahedra. Polyhedral Co centers, triangular B centers, and tetrahedral P centers are joined together to form a three-dimensional net...
Energy transfer and stimulated emission dynamics at 1.1 mu m in Nd-doped SiNx
Li, Rui; Yerci, Selçuk; Kucheyev, Sergei O.; van Buuren, Tony; Dal Negro, Luca (2011-03-14)
Neodymium (Nd) doped amorphous silicon nitride films with various Si concentrations (Nd:SiNx) were fabricated by reactive magnetron co-sputtering followed by thermal annealing. The time dynamics of the energy transfer in Nd:SiNx was investigated, a systematic optimization of its 1.1 mu m emission was performed, and the Nd excitation cross section in SiNx was measured. An active Nd:SiNx micro-disk resonator was fabricated and enhanced radiation rate at 1.1 mu m was demonstrated due to stimulated emission at ...
Energy band gap and oscillator parameters of Ga4Se3S single crystals
Qasrawi, A. F.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2007-06-01)
The optical properties of the Bridgman method grown Ga4Se3S crystals have been investigated by means of room temperature, transmittance and reflectance spectral analysis. The optical data have revealed an indirect allowed transition band gap of 2.08 eV. The room temperature refractive index, which was calculated from the reflectance and transmittance data, allowed the identification of the dispersion and oscillator energies, static dielectric constant and static refractive index as 21.08 and 3.85 eV, 6.48 a...
Voltammetric methods of reboxetine analysis and the mechanism of its electrode reactions
Altunöz Erdoğan, Deniz; Erk, Nevin; Kilic, Esma (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2013-05-01)
Reboxetine (RBX) electrochemical redox behavior at hanging mercury drop (HMDE) and glassy carbon electrodes (GCE) was studied in various pH Britton-Robinson universal buffers using cyclic voltammetry and square-wave voltammetry. RBX was reduced at the HMDE and oxidized at the GCE with reversible adsorption controlled and irreversible diffusion controlled processes respectively. The anodic peak is due to the amine and the cathodic peak may correspond to oxygen protonation. An oxidation reaction mechanism is ...
In situ DRIFTS characterization of wet-impregnated and sol-gel Pd/TiO 2 for NO reduction with CH4
Karakaş, Gürkan; Ozkan, Umit S. (Elsevier BV, 2002-05-01)
The adsorption/desorption behavior of 2%Pd/TiO2 catalysts synthesized by wet-impregnation and modified sol–gel techniques were examined in NO–CH4–O2 reaction using in situ diffuse reflectance infrared Fourier transform spectroscopy (DRIFTS). The catalyst prepared by the modified sol–gel method showed significantly higher resistance toward oxygen while maintaining a 100% NO conversion. Under NO+CH4+O2 flow, the main adsorbed NO species was identified as the linearly adsorbed NO on metallic palladium (Pd0–NO)...
