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.


Synthesis of Na-, Fe-, and Co-promoted TiO2/multiwalled carbon nanotube composites and their use as a photocatalyst
Yurum, Alp; Karakaş, Gürkan (2017-01-01)
The use of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in sol-gel synthesized titanium dioxide (TiO2) photocatalysts as templates was systematically studied. CNTs have high oxidative thermal stability and the controlled removal of CNTs can be achieved at lower temperatures under air flow by the use of Na, Fe, and Co as a catalyst. These catalysts helped to reduce the oxidation temperature of CNTs; thus anatase phase was achieved without significant sintering. The use of a promoter, heat treatment, and various heat ...

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...
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...

ŞARDAN, Melis; Sezer, Serdar; GUNEL, Aslihan; AKKAYA, MAHİNUR; Tanyeli, Cihangir (2012-09-15)
An efficient synthesis of racemic and both enantiomeric forms of heteroaryl substituted gamma- and delta-lactone derivatives derived from allyl and homoallyl alcohol backbones has been accomplished via ring closing metathesis reaction. 2-Heteroaryl substituted allyl and homoallyl alcohols have been efficiently resolved through enzymatic method with high ee (97-99%) and known stereochemistry. Antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of target lactones were evaluated.
