The Al-Sc alloy formation by the reduction of Sc containing compounds in a molten salt containing CaCl2 was investigated in this study. The preliminary tests revealed that Al3Sc intermetallic, which gives the superior properties to this alloy, was successfully formed and distributed homogeneously throughout the Al matrix. XRD, SEM-EDS and optical microscopy analyses were used to confirm the results.

Electrochemical decomposition of SiO2 pellets to form silicon in molten salts
Ergul, Emre; Karakaya, İshak; Erdogan, Metehan (Elsevier BV, 2011-01-21)
Direct electrochemical reduction of porous SiO2 pellets in molten CaCl2 salt and CaCl2-NaCl salt mixture was investigated by applying 2.8 V potential. The study focused on the effects of temperature, particle size of SiO2 powder starting material and the behavior of cathode contacting materials during electrochemical reduction process. The starting materials and the electrolysis products were characterized by X-ray diffraction analysis and scanning electron microscopy mainly. The studies showed that smaller...
Molecular dynamics study of random and ordered metals and metal alloys
Kart, Hasan Hüseyin; Tomak, Mehmet; Department of Physics (2004)
The solid, liquid, and solidification properties of Pd, Ag pure metals and especially PdxAg1-x alloys are studied by using the molecular dynamics simulation. The effects of temperature and concentration on the physical properties of PdxÞAg1-x are analyzed. Sutton-Chen (SC) and Quantum Sutton-Chen (Q-SC) many-body potentials are used as interatomic interactions which enable one to investigate the thermodynamic, static, and dynamical properties of transition metals. The simulation results such as cohesive ene...
MOLTEN SALT ELECTROLYSIS OF MgCl2 IN A CELL WITH RAPID CHLORINE REMOVAL FEATURE
Demirci, Gokhan; Karakaya, İshak (2012-03-15)
An experimental electrolytic magnesium production cell was designed to remove chlorine gas from the electrolyte rapidly and demonstrate the beneficial effects of reduced chlorine dissolution into the molten salt electrolyte. The back reaction that is the main cause of current losses in electrolytic magnesium production was reduced as a result of effective separation of electrode products and decreased contact time of chlorine gas with the electrolyte. Moreover, smaller inter electrode distances employed and...
ELECTROLESS DEPOSITION OF OXIDATION RESISTANT HIGH TEMPERATURE COATINGS IN MOLTEN SALT
Ömür, İshak Emre; Karakaya, İshak; Erdoğan, Metehan; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2021-9-10)
Molybdenum and molybdenum alloy (TZM) can be protected against oxygen in hightemperature environment by developing silicide coating on their surface without damaging their mechanical properties. In this study, molybdenum di-silicide was coated on pure molybdenum and its alloy (TZM) surfaces using a molten salt method. NaCl-KCl-NaF eutectic composition was used as salt mixture, and Na2SiF6 and silicon powder were added to the system as silicon source. X-ray diffraction (XRD), Inductively Coupled Plasma ...
Partial oxidation of methane on the SiO2 surface - A quantum chemical study
Ozturk, S; Onal, I; Senkan, S (2000-02-01)
Reaction pathways for methane partial oxidation (MPO) on silica were theoretically investigated using the semiempirical MOPAC-PM3 molecular orbital method. The surface of SiO2 was modeled by a helical Si6O18H12 molecular cluster that also exhibits a strained siloxane bridge defect. First, a bond energy analysis was performed on the silica cluster with isolated 3- and 4-coordinated Si surface atoms. Calculated bond dissociation energies for Si-H, SiO-H, and SI-OH were comparable to H-CH3, H-OH, and O-O. In t...
