Synthesis and structural characterization of Ni-B nanoalloys

Mut, Lütfiye Seda
Within the scope of this study, it is aimed to produce and to realize the structural characterization of Nickel Boron nanocrystalline/amorphous, alloy/intermetallic phase powders. Mechanical alloying by high energy ball milling was determined as production method. X-ray diffraction (XRD) for phase analysis, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) for microstructure and morphological analysis, Vibrating Sample Magnetometer (VSM) for change in magnetic properties and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) for thermal analysis were determined as methods for characterization of produced powders. Milling operation has been carried out with two different compositions as Ni80B20 and Ni60B40, prepared from elemental Nickel and Boron powders. For both compositions, after 1, 5, 10, 20, 40, 60 and 80 hours of milling, samples have been taken out and analyses have been carried out. According to the structural analyses, there are no remarkable additional peaks belonging to any intermetallic compounds until 40 hours of milling. For Ni80B20 composition, Ni3B and Ni2B peaks after 40 hours of milling and for Ni60B40, Ni3B peak after 60 hours of milling were observed notably and with the increase in milling time intensities of these peaks increased. Besides, XRD and SEM analyses have shown that particle size and/or crystallite size decreased with increasing milling time. Additionally, along with peak broadening in XRD curves, DSC analyses have pointed out the formation of amorphous structure. As for, changes in magnetic properties it was shown that with increase in milling time, saturation magnetization shows a general decrease and hysteresis increases.

In the experimental part of the study, Fe80B20 and Fe85B15 crystalline /amorphous nanocomposite powders have been synthesized by using surfactant-assisted high-energy ball mill...
Investigation of bismuth doped bioglass/graphene oxide nanocomposites for bone tissue engineering
Pazarçeviren, Ahmet Engin; Tezcaner, Ayşen; Keskin, Dilek; Evis, Zafer (2018-03-01)
In this study, bismuth doped 45S5 nanobioactive bioglass (nBG) and graphene oxide (GO) nanocomposites were developed and characterized in terms of microstructural, mechanical, bioactivity and biological properties. Bismuth (Bi) - doped nBG was synthesized by sol-gel method and sintered at 600 degrees C for 2 h. Nanosized GO was homogeneously mixed with Bi doped bioglass at various ratios to prepare nanocomposites. Addition of Bi increased the density of nBG samples while a considerable decrease in density w...
Degradation of Bisphenol A in Natural and Artificial Marine and Freshwaters in Turkey
Kocaman, Emel; Özhan, Koray (2019-09-01)
Bisphenol A (BPA), one of the important synthetic chemicals, has been produced at high volumes since the 1960s. These chemicals are commonly detected in the marine and freshwater environments; however, their transformation in aquatic environments depends on many parameters. This study aims to investigate the degradation of BPA in marine and freshwaters under different conditions in terms of microbial degradation, photodegradation, and temperature effect. The results showed that BPA content in samples prepar...
Synthesis, characterization, and theoretical investigation of optical and nonlinear optical (NLO) properties of triazene-based push–pull chromophores
Mammadova, Flora; Ozsinan, Semin; Okutan, Merve; Dengiz, Çağatay (Elsevier BV, 2020-11-15)
A short and efficient synthetic strategy for the synthesis of triazene-substituted push–pull dyes has been developed. The formal [2 + 2] cycloaddition-retroelectrocyclization was utilized for the preparation of the target push–pull dyes. These atom-economic, click-type chemical transformations occurred under ambient conditions and provided structurally interesting push–pull dyes in high yields. The effects of different triazene substituents on optical and non-linear optical properties were investigated by m...
Production and characterization of maghemite nanoparticles
Baltacı, Özge Acarbaş; Özenbaş, Ahmet Macit; Volkan, Mürvet; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2010)
The aim of this study is to produce maghemite nanoparticles by using different production methods. To achieve this purpose Sol-Gel Processing and Microwave Synthesis methods were employed. Suitable characterization techniques like XRD, TEM, BET, and VSM were performed to control the properties of the synthesized particles whether they are suitable for certain applications. In the sol-gel part of the study two different routes were employed to obtain maghemite nanoparticles. In the first route TEOS (tetraeth...
