It is well known that hetero-interfaces in (La,Sr)CoO3/(La,Sr)(2)CoO4 (LSC113/214) are beneficial in catalyzing ORR for SOFC cathodes. This can be achieved by synthesizing the individual phases and mixing them together. In this study, so as to maximize the hetero interfaces, an alternative method was used in which one pot Pechini method was employed to synthesize a two-phase structure. LSC113/214 two phase structures from one precursors solution were successfully synthesized without the formation of any undesired third phase for the first time. It was found that a minimum temperature of 800 degrees C was necessary so as to obtain the fully crystallized dual phase powder. Two phase structures of molar fractions from 0.40 to 0.60 was targeted and were successfully obtained with some deviations. Impedance measurements were carried out on porous conventional symmetric cells fabricated with the synthesized dual phase powders between 400 and 700 degrees C. The dual phase powders had improved electrode performance as compared to single phase and physically mixed powders, but this was limited down to 500 degrees C.

Why silver is the unique catalyst for ethylene epoxidation
Ozbek, M. O.; Önal, Işık; van Santen, R. A. (2011-12-01)
The activities of Cu(2)O(001), Ag(2)O(001), and Au(2)O(001) surfaces for direct ethylene epoxidation and alternative paths for EO isomerization are studied. Among these three oxide surfaces, only Ag(2)O(001) surface enables direct path without a barrier. Au(2)O cannot regenerate surface oxygen, and overall reaction on Cu(2)O is endothermic. Furthermore, ring opening of ethylene oxide (EO) and subsequent acetaldehyde (AA) formation on Cu(2)O is more favorable than EO desorption. Ethylene adsorption on an oxy...
Regioselectivity in the ene-reaction of singlet oxygen with cyclic alkenes: photooxygenation of methyl-substituted 1,4-cyclohexadiene derivatives
Yardimci, Sengul Dilem; Kaya, Nihal; Balcı, Metin (Elsevier BV, 2006-11-13)
The photooxygenation of the 1-methyl-, 2,3-dimethyl-, and 1,4-dimethylcyclohexa-1,4-dienes, which are readily available through Birch reduction, yielded the corresponding ene-products. The formed endocyclic dienes were trapped by the addition of singlet oxygen to give the corresponding bicyclic endoperoxy hydroperoxides. In the case of 1-methylcyclohexa-1,4-diene and 1,4-dimethylcyclohexa-1,4,-diene, the cis-effect determined the product distribution. Photooxygenation of 2,3-dimethylcyclohexa-1,4-dienes gav...
Electrochromic Properties of a Copolymer of 1-4-Di[2,5-di(2-thieny1)-1H-1-pyrroly1]benzene with EDOT
KİRALP, S; ÇAMURLU, PINAR; Günbaş, Emrullah Görkem; Tanyeli, Cihangir; AKHMEDOV, I; Toppare, Levent Kamil (2009-04-15)
Homopolymer of 1-4-di[2,5-di(2-thienyl)- 1H-1-pyrroly1]benzene and its copolymer with 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) were electrochemically synthesized and characterized. Resulting homopolymer and copolymer films have distinct electrochromic properties. At the neutral state, homopolymer has lambda(max) due to the pi-pi* transition as 410 nm and E-g was calculated as 2.03 eV. The resultant copolymer revealed multichromism through the entire visible region, displaying red-violet, brownish yellow green, and...
Asymmetric synthesis of tetrahydrothiophenes in the presence of bifunctional organocatalysts
Tümer, Mustafa Faik; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2021-1-22)
In general, nitroolefins are convenient structures as Michael acceptors. To make it clear for this work, attack of a sulfur-containing nucleophile to a nitroolefin forms a C-S bond and opening the double bond would create a nucleophilic center on the nitroolefin which leads to the formation of a new C-C bond. In this study, asymmetric organocatalytic sulfa-Michael addition of 1,4-dithiane-2,5-diol to trans-β-nitrostyrene derivatives was carried out which yielded polyfunctional tetrahydrothiophenes that have...
Full-wave analysis of microstrip lines on a highly lossy substrate
Prakash, VVS; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Mittra, R (Wiley, 2003-06-05)
The finite-element method has been used for analyzing open microstrip line structures on highly lossy substrates. The geometry descritization has been carried out by using quadrilateral elements, and the spurious solutions art avoided by employing tangential vector formulation. The difficulties associated with finding the propagation constant of a highly lossy structure 13.1, solving a generalized eigenvalue problem are discussed. A methodology is presented,for a fast and efficient computation of the attenu...
