Boron content of 16 Turkish hazelnut (Corylus avellana L.) cultivars were determined by using inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) and Azomethine H. spectrophotometric method. The results varied between 13.8 and 22.2 mg/kg. No significant difference was observed between the results by the two methods (P > 0.05). However, the difference among boron content of hazelnut varieties was found to be significantly important (P<0.01). The highest boron content was in Mincane (20-22.2 mg/kg). Results revealed that the Turkish hazelnut is a good natural source of boron.


Production of boron nitride by carbothermic and mechanochemical methods, and nanotube formation
Camurlu, HE; Aydogdu, A; Topkaya, Yavuz Ali; Sevinc, N (2003-09-12)
The formation of hexagonal boron nitride by carbothermic reduction of boron oxide and nitridation has been examined. Experiments were conducted in the temperature range of 1100-1500degreesC for durations between 15-240 minutes. Products were examined by X-ray, SEM and chemical analysis. The results showed that the reaction proceeds through a gaseous boron containing species, which is most probably 13203(g). It was found that all of the carbon was consumed and formation of boron nitride was complete in 2 hou...
Determination of metal concentrations in lichen samples by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy technique after applying different digestion procedures
Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal; Dogangun, A (2004-05-28)
Three digestion procedures have been tested on lichen samples for application in the determination of major, minor and trace elements (Al, Ca, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, Na, Ni, Ph, V and Zn) in lichen samples collected in Aegean Region of Turkey by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometer (ICP-AES). The acid mixture of concentrated HNO3, H2O2 and HF were used. The instrument was optimized using lichen matrix considering RF power, nebulizer pressure, auxiliary flow rate and Pump rate. The acc...

An accurate and precise method for the determination of arsenobetaine (AsB, (CH(3))(3)(+)AsCH(2)COO(-)) in fish samples using exact matching species specific isotope dilution (ID) liquid chromatography LTQ:Orbitrap mass spectrometry (LC-LTQ-Orbitrap-MS) and standard addition LC inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LC-ICPMS) is described. Samples were extracted by sonication for 30 min with high purity deionized water. An in-house synthesized (13)C enriched AsB spike was used for species specific ID...
Calculation of the thermodynamic and spectroscopic quantities in molecular crystals close to the phase transitons
Kavruk, Dilan; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Department of Physics (2011)
We study in this thesis work the spectroscopic and thermodynamic quantities of some substances such as ammonium halides (NH4Cl, NH4I), ferroelectric crystals of tris-sarcosine calcium chloride (TSCC), tris-sarcosine calcium bromide (TSCB), organic compounds of carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) and s-triazine (C3N3H3) close to the phase transitions. Various physical and chemical properties of those materials have been measured near the critical points and have been reported in the literature. In this study, the sp...
Investigation of thermal characteristics of naphthoxazines and polynaphthoxazines via pyrolysis mass spectrometry
Koyuncu, Zeynep; Hacaloğlu, Jale; Department of Chemistry (2009)
In this study, polymerization mechanisms of aromatic (C6H5 or C6F5) and alkyl (CH3, C2H5, C3H7, C6H13, C12H25 or C18H37) amine based naphthoxazine monomers (15-Na, 15Na-C1, 15Na-C2, 15Na-C3, 15Na-C6, 15Na-C12 and 15Na-C18) and thermal degradation mechanisms of polynaphthoxazines synthesized by curing the naphthoxazine monomers (P-15-Na, P-15NaF, P-15Na-C1, P-15Na-C2, P-15Na-C3, P-15Na-C6, P-15Na-C12 and P-15Na-C18) were studied by direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. During the curing process, the evolutions...
