Effects of synthesis and doping methods on thermoluminescence glow curves of manganese doped lithium tetraborate

Kayhan, Mehmet
In this study, differences in glow curves of Mn doped LTB powder samples synthesized with solid and wet synthesis methods and doped by using solid and wet doping techniques were investigated. Firstly, LTB was synthesized by using wet synthesis method which mainly comprises dissolution of reactants in water as solvent. Second way to produce LTB which was used in this study was solid synthesis method. In solid synthesis method, reactants were mixed in powder form. In the second part of the study, LTB produced by two different methods were doped with Mn and additionally Ag, Mg or P by using two different doping techniques. In order to see structural differences between differently synthesized and differently doped LTB samples which contained different amount of dopant powder X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) method was employed. Besides, FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared) spectroscopy analyses were performed in order to detect differences in the bond structure caused by doping. Additionally, Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometer (ICP-OES) was used to determine the actual amount of dopant in LTB. Also morphological structures of samples were compared by using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). Thermoluminescence measurements were performed with (TLD) Thermoluminescence Dosimeter equipment. XRD and FTIR analysis showed that syntheses of products were done in well success. Addition of dopants did not cause any changes in structural or bonding properties of LTB. It was possible to observe that, synthesis and doping methods and dopant concentration effect the thermoluminescence glow curves of doped LTB.


Development of new synthetic methodologies for indole derivatives
Kılıklı, Ahmet Alper; Balcı, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2010)
Synthesizing nitrogen containing heterocyclic compounds is one of the leading research areas throughout the organic chemistry due to their significant activities on biological systems. Among the various biologically active molecules, indole derivatives are of prime importance on the grounds of their proven clinical roles. Objective of this study is to synthesize new indole derivatives those may contribute treatment of several diseases like their analogues via a recently developed synthetic methodology. Besi...
Behaviour of bimetallic Pt-Pd carbon-supported catalysts in methanol electrooxidation
Gokagac, G; Leger, JM; Hahn, F (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2003-05-01)
Carbon powder supported bimetallic 8w%Pt+8w%Pd/C, 8w%Pt+6w%Pd/C, 8w%Pt+4w%Pd/C, Sw%Pt+2w%Pd/C, 8w%Pt/C and 8w%Pd/C samples were prepared, characterised and tested for the electrooxidation of methanol. The particle sizes were found to depend greatly on the composition and the metal content. With pure palladium and samples rich in palladium, the diameter of the bimetallic particles was around 150 nm, but with pure Pt and samples poor in Pd it was much smaller, below 5 nm. The electrocatalytic activity of thes...
Preparation and characterization of carbon supported platinum nanocatalysts with different surfactants for C1 to C3 alcohol oxidations
Ertan, Salih; Gökağaç Arslan, Gülsün; Department of Chemistry (2011)
In this thesis, carbon supported platinum nanoparticles have been prepared by using PtCl4 as a starting material and 1-octanethiol, 1-decanethiol, 1-dodecanethiol and 1-hexadecanethiol as surfactants for methanol, ethanol and 2-propanol oxidation reactions. The structure, particle sizes and surface morphologies of the platinum were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), atomic force microscopy (AFM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). XRD and TEM results indicate that all prepared catalysts have ...
Effect of analogy-enhanced instruction accomponied with concept maps on understanding of acid- base concept
Yılmazoğlu, Candan; Yılmazoğlu, Candan; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2004)
This study was conducted to explore the effectiveness of analogy-enhanced instruction accompanied with concept maps over traditionally designed chemistry introduction on understanding of acid-base concept and attitude toward chemistry as a school subject. 81 8th grade students from two classes of a chemistry course taught by the same teacher in Nuh Eskiyapan Primary School in Ankara in 2003-2004 fall semesters were enrolled in the study. There were two groups of students. During the treatment, students in t...
Introduction of solid-phase microextraction as a high-throughput sample preparation tool in laboratory analysis of prohibited substances
Boyacı, Ezel; Rodriguez-Lafuente, Angel; Bojko, Barbara; Pawliszyn, Janusz (Elsevier BV, 2014-01-27)
A fully automated, high-throughput method based on thin-film solid-phase microextraction (SPME) and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry was developed for simultaneous quantitative analysis of 110 doping compounds, selected from ten classes and varying in physical and chemical properties. Among four tested extraction phases, C18 blades were chosen, as they provided optimum recoveries and the lowest carryover effect. The SPME method was optimized in terms of extraction pH, ionic strength of the sample, wa...
