The electrical properties and charge transport mechanisms for nanoporous natural zeolite of clinoptilolite and its silver modified form were studied for the first time in a wide gas pressure range (4-760 Torr) and electric field strength (50-350 kV/cm) at room temperature using two different cell configurations. One of the used cells contained a gas discharge gap, which allowed investigating the electronic conduction route in zeolite cathodes (ZC) as well. The influence of pressure, electric field and cell types on the dc conductivity was described. The resistivity decreased intensely from 10(10) to 10(6) Omega cm at 435 V upon increasing the pressure from 4 to 760 (AP) Torr, which can be due to the ionic mobility of ZC. The physical role of Ag metal nanoparticles in the generation and maintenance of cold plasma stabilization over the surface of ZCs was investigated. For this purpose, the effect of pressure and electric field on the charge transport mechanisms in the silver-modified-zeolite porous microstructure and physicochemical interaction of the discharge plasma with the different Ag loadings as was studied. The electric field and pressure was found to be basic parameters determining the characteristics,of the discharge plasma and charge transport mechanisms. When high voltages were applied to the cell with gas discharge gap, the ionization phenomena was observed to increase, which indicated that the electronic conduction is most likely to contribute to the dc conduction in the zeolite. Therefore, the ionic and electronic transport mechanisms were both found to influence the transport mechanisms.


Effect of microwave and conventional sintering on properties of soft magnetic Ni-Fe alloys
Erdem, Derya; Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (2011-01-01)
In this study, soft magnetic Ni-Fe permalloy compacts were consolidated through microwave and conventional sintering routes at combinations of various sintering temperatures and compaction pressures. Sintered alloys were characterized in terms of their densification, microstructural evolution as well as magnetic and machanical properties. The effect of sintering method in terms of the applied sintering parameters on the final properties of the compacts were investigated in a comparative manner. It was deter...
Effects of compaction parameters on heavy metal mass transport in Ankara clay liner: Experimental approach
Çamur, Mehmet Zeki; Yazıcıgil, Hasan (2007-01-01)
Mass transports of Cl, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, K, Mn, Ni, Pb and Zn ions through the Ankara clay liner prepared under two different compaction were studied experimentally on the bases of sorption and hydrodynamic dispersion processes. According to geotechnical tests, the Ankara clay material is highly plastic, inorganic clay having a liquid limit of 73, a plastic limit of 29 and a plasticity index of 44. Optimum compaction of the material requires 32% water content and 1.413 g/cm(3) dry density. Two materials, prep...

We have analyzed the interaction between microdischarge and microporous zeolite electronic materials modified by silver (Ag-0) nanoparticles (resistivity similar to 10(11) to 10(6) Omega cm) on the atmospheric pressure cold plasma generation in air. The generation and maintenance of stable cold plasma is studied according to the effect of the Ag-0 nanoparticles. The role of charge carriers in mixed conductivity processes and electrical features of zeolite from low pressure to atmospheric pressure is analyze...
Effect of pressure and particle size on the thermal cracking of light crude oils in sandstone matrix
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-4-27)
This research is focused on the effects of pressure (100-300 Pa) and matrix and on light crude oil combustion in sandstone matrix using pressurized differential scanning calorimetry (PDSC). Light crude oils and sandstone mixtures were prepared to give a composition of 15 mass% crude oil in sandstone matrix. A total of forty-eight PDSC experiments were performed. Roger and Morris kinetic model was used to analyse the data obtained from PDSC experiments and the results are discussed.

Emerce, Nur Ber; Külah, Görkem; Eroğlu Pala, Damla; Department of Chemical Engineering (2019)
In this study, the effect of electrolyte to sulfur (E/S) ratio in the cathode, which is an important cell design parameter, on the electrochemical and cell- and system-level performance of a Lithium-Sulfur (Li-S) battery is investigated through modeling efforts. First, a 1-D electrochemical model is developed for an isothermal, constant-current discharge of a Li-S cell to predict the voltage at 60% discharge depth. In the model, cathode exchange current density is defined as a linear function of the electro...
