The Effect of Ultrasonication on the Size and Morphology of Iron Oxide - Chitosan Nano and Microparticles

Akin, Deniz
Gündüz, Ufuk
The aim of this study is to synthesize magnetic Fe3O4-chitosan nano and microparticles (Fe3O4-CPs) by suspension cross-linking and ionic gelation methods and investigate the effect of ultrasonication on the size, morphology and magnetic properties. The synthesized particles were characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), dynamic light scattering (DLS) and vibrating sample magnetometry (VSM). The results showed that the ultrasonication decreased the mean particle diameter and enhanced magnetic properties of Fe3O4-CPs due to the Fe3O4 content.

ŞAHBAZ, DENİZ AKIN; YAKAR, ARZU; Gündüz, Ufuk (2019-08-18)
In this study, first, magnetic nanoparticles (MNP) were synthesized using a coprecipitation method and the synthesized particles were characterized using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), dynamic light scattering (DLS), and vibrating sample magnetometry (VSM). According to DLS and VSM analyses results, it was seen that the size of the MNP was smaller than 10 nm and they exhibited superparamagnetic properties, respectively. Then, magnetic Fe3O4-chitosan micro/n...
The effect of substitutional impurities on the evolution of FeAl diffusion layer
Akdeniz, Mahmut Vedat; Mehrabov, Amdulla (Elsevier BV, 1998-2-13)
The formation and growth characteristics of Fe based aluminide diffusion layers at the Fe-Al interface have been analysed in terms of interfacial interaction potentials based on the statistico-thermodynamical theory of multicomponent alloys combined with electronic theory in the pseudopotential approximation. The pairwise interatomic interaction potentials and partial ordering energies have been calculated to predict the effect of various alloying additions on the activity coefficient of Al atoms in α-Fe0.9...
A DFT Study of Direct Oxidation of Benzene to Phenol by N2O over [Fe(mu-O)Fe](2+) Complexes in ZSM-5 Zeolite
Fellah, Mehmet Ferdi; Pidko, Evgeny A.; van Santen, Rutger A.; Önal, Işık (2011-05-19)
Density functional theory (DFT) calculations were carried out in a study of the mechanism of benzene oxidation by N2O to phenol over an extra framework dimeric [FeOFe](2+) species in ZSM-5 zeolite represented by a [Si6Al2O9H14(Fe(mu-O)Fe)] cluster model. The catalytic reactivity of such a binuclear species is compared with that of mononuclear Fe2+ and (FeO)(+) sites in ZSM-5 investigated in our earlier works at the same level of theory (J. Phys. Chem. C 2009, 113, 15307; 2010, 114, 12580). The activation en...
The spin effects on electronic, optical and mechanical properties of new ferromagnetic chalcopyrite: YMnS2
Yıldız, Buğra; Erkisi, Aytac; Sürücü, Gökhan (2022-05-15)
In this study, magnetic and electronic nature, optical behavior, and elasticity properties of YMnS2 compound have been investigated by using density functional theory (DFT). The compound belongs to the chalcopyrite family having tetragonal crystal structure with 122 (I-42d) space group. Firstly, the optimization process has been done for ferromagnetic, antiferromagnetic, and paramagnetic orders to find most stable magnetic order and the formation energies have been determined. Negative formation energies pr...
Use of NMR relaxometry to assess physicochemical characteristics of seeds and grains
Ünal, Kübra; Öztop, Halil Mecit; Alpas, Hami; Department of Food Engineering (2022-8)
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) relaxometry is a widely used characterization method for the analysis of physiological and biochemical changes in a huge variety of samples. Time domain NMR (TD-NMR) relaxometry provides structural analysis at low magnetic fields. It is basically relies on the relaxation times of proton signals coming from the entire sample. Thus, it provides quantification of water absorption and analyzing its distribution within the biological systems. In this dissertation, plant tissues a...
