ZnO microrods were grown on glass substrates by the spray pyrolysis method and boron was doped into the ZnO microrods by diffusion. X-ray diffraction results confirmed that the incorporation of B leads to a slight reduction in the deposit texture. Scanning electron microscopy measurements showed that the morphology of the ZnO samples changed from a microrod to nanocrystalline structure with B-doping. Photoluminescence data indicate that B-doping leads to a relative increase of the unstructured green band intensity. Magnetic measurements revealed that B-doped ZnO samples exhibited room temperature ferromagnetism related to defects, in agreement with first principles theoretical calculations.

Viscosity measurement and modeling of lipid supercritical carbon dioxide mixtures
Yener, Meryem Esra; Rizvi, SSH; Harriott, P (1998-01-31)
The viscosities of supercritical carbon dioxide (SC-CO2) containing different levels of methyl oleate and oleic acid were measured with a high pressure capillary viscometer. The SC-CO2-methyl oleate system was evaluated at 313.15, 323.15 and 333.15 K and 11.5, 13.7 and 15.5 MPa, respectively. The SC-CO2-oleic acid system was evaluated at 313.15 K and 20.5 and 30.0 MPa and 333.15 K and 30.0 MPa. The increase in SC-CO2 viscosity was as high as 15-20% at the maximum methyl oleate concentrations (4-5 wt%) and 6...
Electrochemical polymerization of 9-fluorenecarboxylic acid and its electrochromic device application
Bezgin, Buket; CİHANER, ATİLLA; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Elsevier BV, 2008-09-01)
Poly(9-fluorenecarboxylic acid) (PFCA) was synthesized by electrochemical oxidation of 9-fluorenecarboxylic acid (FCA) using a mixture of nitromethane and boron trifluoride diethyl etherate as the solvent and tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate as the supporting electrolyte. An insoluble and conducting brownish-orange film was deposited on the electrode surface, both during repetitive cycling and constant potential electrolysis at 1.15 V. Characterization of the polymer film has been carried out using Four...
Electrochemical behaviour and electrochemical polymerization of fluoro-substituted anilines
Cihaner, A; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (2002-08-01)
The electrochemical behaviour of three fluoro-substituted aniline monomers, 2-fluoroaniline (2FAN), 3-fluoroaniline (3FAN) and 4-fluoroaniline (4FAN), was investigated in aqueous acidic and organic media by means of cyclic voltammetry (CV) studies. Constant potential electrolysis (CPE) of the monomers in acetonitrile-water mixture (1: 1 by volume) using NaClO4 as supporting electrolyte yielded soluble polymers. The mechanism of electrochemical polymerization was investigated using in situ electron spin reso...
Interference effect of iron on the determination of gold in geological samples using the vapor generation technique and preconcentration in a graphite furnace
Ertaş, Gülay; Ataman, Osman Yavuz (2006-04-01)
A vapor generation procedure for the production of volatile species of An was studied using electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry (ETAAS). The interference effects of iron in solution and in the gas phase in a quartz T-tube were studied for the first time in detail. A dual vapor generation system was used for a single heated quartz tube atomizer, so that it was possible to study interferences and classify them regarding their origins. Results show that both gas-phase and liquid-phase interferences a...

Novel benzodithiophene type copolymer was synthesized through a solvent evaporation technique. Poly(5-(5-(4, 8-bis((2-ethylhexyl)oxy)benzo[1,2-b:4, 5-b']dithiophen-2-yl)thiophen-2-yl)-2, 3-bis(3, 4-bis(decyloxy)phenyl)-8-(thiophen-2-yl) quinoxaline) (P-TQTBDT) solar cells were encapsulated with conventional and Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) techniques. Characterizations of the samples were carried out via nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), gel permeation chromotagraphy (GPC) and cyclic voltammetry (CV) techn...
