Boron doped PVA/Zr-Al acetate nanofibers were prepared by electrospinning using PVA as a precursor. The effect of calcination temperature on morphology and crystal structure was investigated at 250, 500, and 800 degrees C. The study also establishes the effect of boron doping on the morphology of PVA/Zr-Al acetate nanofibers at various calcination temperatures. The measurements showed that the conductivity, pH, viscosity and the surface tension of the hybrid polymer solutions have increased with boron doping. In addition, the fibers were characterized by FTIR, DSC, XPS, XRD and SEM techniques. The addition of boron did not only increase the thermal stability of the fibers, hut also increased the average fiber diameters, which gave stronger fibers. The DSC results indicated that the melting temperature (Tm) of the fibers was increased from 256 to 270 degrees C with the addition of boron. XRD peak patterns showed that after further heat treatment at 800 degrees C, zirconia exists in two phases of tetragonal and monoclinic modifications. Moreover, alumina does not transform into the gamma-Al2O3 and theta-Al2O3 phase at 800 degrees C. The SEM appearance of the fibers showed that the addition of boron resulted in the formation of crosslinked bright surfaced fibers.

TUNÇ, TUNCAY; Uslu, I.; Keskin, Serhat (2011-10-01)
In this study, boron doped and undoped poly(vinyl) alcohol/zirconium-barium acetate (PVA/Zr-Ba) nanofibers were prepared using an electrospinning technique then calcinated at three different temperatures; 250 degrees C, 500 degrees C, 800 degrees C for 2 h. The originality of this study is the addition of boron to metal acetates. The fibers were characterized by FT-IR, DSC, XRD and SEM. The addition of boron did not only increase the thermal stability of the fibers, but also increased their diameters, which...
Synthesis and analysis of thermal characteristics of polybenzoxazine based on phenol and 3-Amino phenyl boronic acid
İPEK, HALİL; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2019-07-12)
In this work, 3-amino phenyl boronic acid (AB) was used as an aniline derivative in the preparation of polybenzoxazine based on phenol. In order to investigate the effect of boronic acid on thermal characteristics, polybenzoxazines based on pure aniline and 50% aniline and AB mixture were also prepared and analyzed. Significant improvements in thermal characteristics, increase in thermal stability and char yield, was recorded for the polymers based on AB or its mixture. This behavior was associated with cro...
Synthesis, characterizations and investigation of thermoluminescence properties of strontium pyrophosphate doped with metals
Ilkay, L. S.; ÖZBAYOĞLU, GÜLHAN; Yılmaz, Ayşen (2014-11-01)
Strontium pyrophosphate, Sr2P2O7, was synthesized by solid-state synthesis method; the product was co-doped with copper-silver (Cu-Ag), copper-indium (Cu-In) and manganese-praseodymium (Mn-Pr) oxides (CuO, MnO, In2O3, Pr6O11 and AgNO3) by solid-state reaction method. The variation of dopant concentrations was investigated from 0.5 to 15% by weight. In addition to these processes, chemical characterizations of samples and the investigation of thermoluminescence (TLD) properties of strontium pyrophosphate wit...
Synthesis of tempo containing chiral polymers for kinetic resolution of secondary alcohols.
Yücel, Ece Ayç; Akdağ, Akın; Department of Chemistry (2020)
Optically pure secondary alcohols are important building blocks for the synthesis of chemicals used in pharmaceutical sciences. Kinetic resolution of secondary alcohols through selective oxidation of one enantiomer to the corresponding ketone is a classical and efficient method to obtain enantiopure alcohols. An oxidative kinetic resolution is achieved by exploiting two enantiomers’ unequal rates of oxidation reaction with a chiral reagent or catalyst. The general approach towards a kinetic resolution via a...

A study was carried out on the synthesis of FeTi intermetallics from mixed oxide precursors using the method of electro-deoxidation. Fe2O3 and TiO2 mixed in molar proportions of 1:2 were sintered at temperatures ranging from 900 degrees C to 1300 degrees C. The sintered pellet of mixed oxides, connected as cathode, was then electrolyzed in a molten CaCl2 at 900 degrees C using a graphite anode at a potential of 3.2 V. The electrolysis yielded the target composition FeTi in substantial amounts only when the ...
