Chitosan fibers showing narrow diameter distribution with a mean of 42 nm were produced by electrospinning and utilized for the sorption of Fe(III), Cu(II), Ag(I), and Cd(II) ions from aqueous solutions. The ion concentrations in the supernatant solutions were determined using inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). The filtration efficiency of the fibers toward these ions was studied by both batch and microcolumn methods. High efficiency in sorption of the metal ions was obtained in the both methods. The effects of sorbent amount (0.10-0.50 mg), shaking time (15-120 min), initial metal ion concentration (10.0-1000.0 mu g.L-1), and temperature (25 and 50 degrees C) on the extent of sorption were examined. The sorbent amount did not significantly alter the efficiency of sorption; however, shaking time, temperature, and metal ion concentration were found to have a strong influence on sorption. By virtue of its mechanical integrity, the applicability of the chitosan mat in solid phase extraction under continuous flow looks promising.

Energetics and stability of small SimCn clusters: AM1 and PM3 calculations
Erkoç, Şakir; Turker, L (2000-07-01)
The energetics and the structural stabilities of small SimCn clusters with m + n = 2-5 have been investigated by AM1 and PM3 type semi-empirical molecular orbital methods within the RHF formalizm. It has been found that small silicon-carbide clusters prefer the linear structure.
Sorption of As(V) from waters using chitosan and chitosan-immobilized sodium silicate prior to atomic spectrometric determination
Boyacı, Ezel; Shahwan, Talal (2010-01-15)
A natural biosorbent containing amine functional groups, chitosan, and a novel sorbent, chitosan-immobilized sodium silicate, were prepared and utilized for the selective sorption of As(V) from waters prior to its determination by atomic spectrometric techniques, namely, hydride generation atomic absorption spectrometry (HGAAS) and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). Chitosan was synthesized from chitin and sodium silicate was used as the immobilization matrix due to its straightforward s...
SORPTION PROPERTIES OF SILICALITE-1 OF PURE SILICA FORM - THE INFLUENCE OF SORPTION HISTORY ON SORPTION KINETICS OF CRITICALLY SIZED MOLECULES
KARSH, H; Çulfaz, Ali; YUCEL, H (Elsevier BV, 1992-07-01)
Sorption properties of silicalite-1 samples of pure silica form for some parafinic and aromatic hydrocarbons of different molecular sizes were investigated. It was observed that sorption rates and apparent equilibrium capacities for critically sized molecules, m-xylene and o-xylene, depend on the sorption history of the sample. Sorption of m- and o-xylene proceeded extremely slowly on fresh samples of silicalite-1, whereas sorption rates of these molecules on silicalite-1 samples that had passed through a p...

A series flowerlike ZnO-PMMA (FL-ZnO-PMMA) composites were synthesized from PMMA and different amount of flowerlike ZnO (FL- ZnO) particles via the solution direct-dispersing and in-situ polymerization method. FL-ZnO particles have been synthesized using the hydrothermally technique. Effects of synthesis conditions on the crystal structure, crystallite size, microstructure and morphological properties of the produced FL-ZnO particles were investigated by FTIR, X-ray and SEM. The prepared ZnO nanostructures ...
Sorption properties of synthetic ferrierite
Karsli, H; Çulfaz, Ali; Yucel, H (2003-05-01)
Limiting sorption volumes of the hydrogen form of a synthetic ferrierite sample were determined for sorbates-water, methanol, propane, hexane, and o-, m-, p-xylenes-at 298 K and at a relative pressure of P/P-o= 0.5 using a gravimetric sorption apparatus. Methanol, which has a kinetic diameter significantly smaller than the pore dimensions, was sorbed relatively rapidly and by the greatest amount. The sorption rates of other sorbates were very slow and for some it took several days for equilibrium to be esta...
