Multicomponent ion exchange on zeolite 4A

Kadaifci, Bijen
In this study binary and ternary ion exchange on Zeolite NaA using silver and cadmium ions were investigated. Ion exchange were conducted at constant temperature (25oC) and normality (0.1N) in a batch system for both binary and ternary experiments. Zeolite weights were varied between 0.1 and 1 g for binary experiments. Thermodynamic analysis of binary ion exchange between Cd2+-Na+ and Ag+-Na+ were examined and thermodynamic equilibrium constant and Gibbs free energy were calculated. Thermodynamic equilibrium constants were found as respectively 28.2 and 300.4 for Cd2+-Na+ and Ag+-Na+ binary system. Standart free energy of Cd2+-Na+ and Ag+-Na+ binary exchange were calculated as -4.1 kJ/mol and -14.1 kJ/mol respectively. In literature Ay (2008) calculated the Gibbs free energy for Ag+-Na+ binary system as -14.4 kJ/mol and Biskup and Subotic (2010) and Gal et al. (1970) calculated the Gibbs free energy for Cd2+-Na+ binary system as -3.7 kJ/mol and -4.4 kJ/mol respectively. It is concluded Zeolite 4A has higher affinity to silver than cadmium and selectivity sequence was found as; Ag+>Cd2+>Na+. Langmuir and Freundlich isotherms were drawn to describe experimental data. As compared the R2 of isotherms, it is clearly seen that Freundlich isotherm provides better fit for Cd2+-Na+ binary ion exchange and Ag+-Na+ binary ion exchange. The ternary ion exchange isotherms were plotted using equivalent fraction of three ions (Ag+,Na+,Cd2+) which participated in ion exchange experiments to determine selectivity of zeolite 4A for cadmium and silver. Selectivity sequence was determined as Ag+ > Cd2+ >Na+ for ternary ion exchange.

Wolowski, J.; Badziak, J.; Czarnecka, A.; Parys, P.; Pisarek, M.; Rosinski, M.; Turan, Raşit; Yerci, Selçuk (2008-01-01)
This work reports experiment concerning specific applications of implantation of laser-produced ions for production of semiconductor nanocrystals. The investigation was carried out in the IPPLM within the EC STREP 'SEMINANO' project. A repetitive pulse laser system of parameters: energy up to 0.8 J in a 3.5 ns-pulse, wavelength of 1.06 mu m, repetition rate of up to 10 Hz, has been employed in these investigations. The characterisation of laser-produced ions was performed with the use of 'time-of-flight' io...

The reaction between biologically green synthesized silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) and mercury (II) ions was introduced as a new and high potential calorimetric sensor for the selective recognition and monitoring of mercuric ions in aqueous samples. The green synthesized silver nanoparticles were characterized with surface plasmon resonance (SPR) ultraviolet spectroscopy (UV-vis), SEM and X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD) techniques. The fresh biologically synthesized silver nanoparticles are yellowish-brown ...

Kula, Ibrahim; Ugurlu, Mehmet; Karaoglu, M. Hamdi; Celik, Ali (2008-02-01)
This study is aimed to remove Cd(II) ions from aqueous solutions by adsorption. As adsorbent, activated carbon prepared from olive stone, an agricultural solid by-product was used. Different activating agent (ZnCl2) amounts and adsorbent particle size were studied to optimize adsorbent surface area. The adsorption experiments were conducted at different parameters such as, adsorbent dose, temperature, equilibrium time and pH. According to the experiments results, the equilibrium time, optimum pH, adsorbent ...

Boruban, Cansu; Nalbant Esentürk, Emren (2017-10-01)
Copper(II) oxide (CuO) nanoparticles (NPs) in two different morphologies, spiky and spherical, were synthesized on zeolite-Y by a modified impregnation method, and their CO2 adsorbing capabilities were investigated under standard conditions (1 atm and 298 K). The properties and CO2 adsorption performances of the hybrid systems were characterized by transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray, X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, atomic absorption s...

The combination of advantages of using zeolites and gold nanoparticles were aimed to be used for the first time to improve the characteristic properties of ion selective field-effect transistor (ISFET)-based creatinine biosensors. The biosensors with covalently cross-linked creatinine deiminase using glutaraldehyde (GA) were used as a control group, and the effect of different types of zeolites on biosensor responses was investigated in detail by using silicalite, zeolite beta (BEA), nano-sized zeolite beta...
