Effect of halloysite nanotubes on multifunctional properties of coaxially electrospun poly(ethylene glycol)/polyamide-6 nanofibrous thermal energy storage materials

Yilmaz, Refik Baris
Bayram, Göknur
Coaxial electrospinning of poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG)/polyamide 6 (PA6) was successfully used in development of nanofibrous thermal energy storage (TES) material. Halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) were introduced into the core/shell structured TES materials at various concentrations (0.5, 1, 3 and 5 wt. %). Surface activation of HNT was also conducted by piranha etching in order to increase the affinity between piranha-etched nanotubes (HNT-P) and PEG. The core/shell structured materials were characterized using SEM, FTIR, TGA, DSC, tensile and thermal cyclic tests. With incorporation of 3 wt. % HNT-P into the core/shell nanofibers, tensile modulus and latent heat of melting values were increased by 25 % and 21 %, respectively. Additionally, PEG encapsulation efficiency of the neat core/shell nanofibers was increased from 78 % to 96 % with 3 wt. % HNT-P addition. The neat core/shell samples preserved 88 %, whereas 3 wt. % HNT and HNT-P added nanofibrous samples preserved 94 % of their initial melting enthalpies.


Comparative combustion kinetics for in situ combustion process
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Elsevier BV, 2001-03-22)
In this research, thermal characteristics and combustion kinetics of three crude oils (13-27 degrees API) were investigated using DuPont 9900 thermal analysis system (TG/DTG). A sample size of 10 mg. heating rate of 10 degreesC min(-1) were used in the temperature range of 20-700 degreesC under air atmosphere. Theoretically, combustion of fuel can be initiated whenever oxygen comes in contact with fuel. However, the temperature, composition of fuel and oxygen supply dictates the nature of this reaction. In ...
PM3 treatment of lead styphnate and its mono ionic forms
Türker, Burhan Lemi (Elsevier BV, 2004-07-26)
Anhydrous lead styphnate, a static-electric-field-sensitive explosive material, has been considered for PM3 (UHF) type semiempirical quantum chemical calculations. Although, geometrically the neutral and the mono valent cation forms resemble each other, the mono valent anion has a distorted geometry indicating bond cleavage. Thus, explosion occurring in the electric field probably occurs via anion formation.
Effect of metal oxide on light oil combustion - TA and kinetic analysis
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2003-01-01)
Simultaneous thermogravimetry (TG) and differential thermal analysis (DTA) were applied to light crude oil combustion in the presence and absence of metal oxide. In crude oil-limestone mixture, three main transitional stages are detected. These are distillation, low-temperature oxidation (LTO) and high temperature oxidation (HTO) regions respectively. In the case of experiments with Fe(III)chloride at different amounts, the shape of TG-DTA curve is changed considerably. Kinetic parameters of the samples are...
Hydrogen storage capacity of Be@C-115 system
Türker, Burhan Lemi (Elsevier BV, 2005-05-20)
Semiempirical quantum chemical analysis of a Be doped single-walled, semicapped, armchair type nanotube, Be@C-115, was achieved at the level of PM3 (RHF) type calculations for some of its quantum chemical properties and hydrogen storage capacity. The Be@C-115 system was found to be capable of storing 1-5 hydrogen molecules as endohedral dopant(s), whereas the sixth hydrogen molecule was expelled out. All the structures, (Be+nH(2))@C-115 were found to be stable and endothermic. Moreover, the increasing numbe...
Novel thermally stable organo-montmorillonites from phosphonium and imidazolium surfactants
Abdallah, Wissam; Yılmazer, Ülkü (Elsevier BV, 2011-10-20)
To circumvent the deleterious early decomposition effects of thermally unstable alkyl ammonium-treated montmorillonites when processed with high-melting-point polymers, high thermally stable salts are used as intercalant agents for sodium montmorillonite rich bentonites of Turkish origin, by an ion exchange reaction to produce organo-montmorillonites with enhanced thermal stability. The bentonite clay was purified by sedimentation, resulting in higher cation exchange capacity and thermal stability in compar...
