Nickel and copper incorporated MCM-41-like mesoporous nanocomposite materials prepared by the direct hydrothermal synthesis and the impregnation procedures showed highly attractive pore structure and surface area results for catalytic applications. The XRD patterns showed that characteristic MCM-41 structure was preserved for the materials synthesized following an impregnation procedure before the calcination step. The surface area of the Cu impregnated material with a quite high Cu/Si atomic ratio (0.19) was 631 m(2)/g. Very narrow pore size distributions with an average pore diameter of about 2.7 nm were obtained as a result of plugging of some of the smaller pores by Cu nanoballs. For lower metal to Si ratios (for instance for Ni/Si = 0.06) much higher surface area values (1130 m(2)/g) were obtained. In the case of nanocomposite materials synthesized by the direct hydrothermal route, MCM-41 structure was not destroyed for samples containing metal to Si atomic ratios as high as 0.12. In the case of materials containing Cu/Si and Ni/Si ratios over 0.2 wider pore size distributions and some decrease of surface area were observed.


Direct hydrothermal synthesis of palladium-incorporated silicate-structured mesoporous catalysts
Sener, Canan; Doğu, Timur; Dogu, Guelsen (2007-01-01)
Pd-Si-structured novel mesoporous nanocomposite catalytic materials, having quite high Pd/Si ratios, were synthesized by an acidic direct hydrothermal synthesis route. The nanocomposite catalytic materials were then characterized by XRD, XPS, EDS, nitrogen adsorption, and SEM techniques. Unlike MCM-41, the XRD patterns indicated a rather wide d((100)) band at a 2 theta value of about 1.9. The materials, with very high Pd/Si wt ratios between 1.43 and 2.66, were synthesized and had BJH surface area values be...
Polyethylene oxide-hydroxyapatite composite and microporous polyethylene oxide-polymethacrylic acid polymer complex preparation and characterization
Banat, Raid M I; Tinçer, Teoman; Department of Chemistry (2002)
The first part of this study covers the crosslinking of polyethylene oxide (PEO) and its composite with calcium hydroxyapatite (HA) and their mechanical, swelling and morphological properties. Sheets of neat PEO (two different molecular weights) and composites of PEO-HA were prepared by compression molding. The composites and PEO thick sheets were crosslinked with exposure of UV- irradiation in presence of acetophenone (AP) for different periods of time. This simple method of crosslinking, UV-irradiation in...
Investigation of cell migration and proliferation in agarose based hydrogels for tissue engineering applications
Vardar, Elif; Hasırcı, Nesrin; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat; Department of Biomedical Engineering (2010)
Hydrogels are three dimensional, insoluble, porous and crosslinked polymer networks. Due to their high water content, they have great resemblance to natural tissues, and therefore, demonstrate high biocompatibility. The porous structure provides an aqueous environment for the cells and also allows influx of nutrients needed for cellular viability. In this study, a natural biodegradable material, agarose (Aga), was used and semi-interpenetrating networks (semi-IPN) were prepared with polymers having differen...
Thermal degradation of polysiloxane and polyetherester containing benzoxazine moieties in the main chain

In this study investigation of thermal characteristics of polysiloxane and polyetherester containing benzoxazine moieties in the main chain was performed via pyrolysis mass spectrometry. Pyrolysis mass spectrometry analyses revealed that the thermal stability and the extent of cross-linking enhanced when the benzoxazine moieties were separated by thermally more stable units such as siloxanes. However, when the siloxane chain units were long, possibility of polybenzoxazine growth decreased significantly and ...
Hydrothermal and microwave synthesis of boron phosphate, BPO(4)
Baykal, Altan; Toprak, M; Kniep, R (2001-01-01)
BPO4 was previously synthesized by the solid state reactions of (NH4)(2)HPO4 and B2O3 at 1000 degreesC and was characterized by X-ray powder diffraction and IR methods. We have now succeeded in preparing BPO4 from H3BO3 and P2O5 using hydrothermal synthesis by heating at 160 degreesC for 2 days and obtained a single phase product. We observed that a microwave-assisted synthesis takes only 3 to 5 minutes to transform a solid mixture of (NH4)(2)B4O7. 4H(2)O, and solid H3PO4 Or B2O3 + P2O5 into the crystalline...
