SAPO-34 was synthesized both in recirculating-flow system and in autoclaves at low temperatures. A two-stage, varying temperature synthesis procedure was applied to reduce the crystallization time. The effects of synthesis temperature and synthesis system on the purity, particle size and BET surface area of the crystalline phase were examined. Pure SAPO-34 with high crystallinity was synthesized from a gel with Si/Al ratio of 0.2 at 130 A degrees C following aging at 80 A degrees C. The particle sizes of SAPO-34 crystals produced in stagnant mixture were in the 250-600 nm range, depending on the synthesis temperature. Flow induced crystallization caused a slight increase in the average particle size. SAPO-34 synthesized in the recirculating-flow system had a BET surface area of approximately 470 m(2)/g with a micropore volume of 0.28 cm(3)/g. From industrial standpoint, the stirring-recirculating-flow of synthesis mixture can be beneficial since uniform synthesis conditions can be accomplished during the production of SAPO-34 in large quantities.


Low temperature photocatalytic oxidation of carbon monoxide over palladium doped titania catalysts
Yetişemiyen, Pelin; Karakaş, Gürkan; Department of Chemical Engineering (2010)
The room temperature photocatalytic oxidation of carbon monoxide in excess air was examined over silica/titania and 0.1%palladium/silica/titania catalysts under UV irradiation. The experiments were conducted in batch re-circulated reactor with the initial 1000 ppm carbon monoxide in air and 0.5 g catalyst charge and the conversion of carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide was followed by FT-IR spectro-photometer. The change in gas composition in dark and under 36 Watts of UV irradiation exposed to a catalyst are...
Low temperature thermoluminescence behaviour of Y2O3 nanoparticles
Delice, S.; IŞIK, MEHMET; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2019-01-01)
Y2O3 nanoparticles were investigated using low temperature thermoluminescence (TL) experiments. TL glow curve recorded at constant heating rate of 0.4 K/s exhibits seven peaks around 19, 62, 91, 115, 162, 196 and 215 K. Activation energies and characteristics of traps responsible for observed curves were revealed under the light of results of initial rise analyses and T-max-T-stop experimental methods. Analyses of TL curves obtained at different stopping temperatures resulted in presence of one quasi-contin...
Low temperature thermoluminescence study of some ternary and quaternary layered structured semiconductors
Delice, Serdar; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Department of Physics (2016)
Thermoluminescence (TL) experiments for ternary and quaternary layered single crystals were carried out in 10−300 K temperature range by employing various heating rates between 0.2 and 1.2 K/s. The TL emissions coming from the trapping centers in the studied samples brought out the TL spectra exhibiting peaks at different temperature regions for each crystals. These peaks were taken under consideration to reveal the TL properties of the associated trap levels. Characterizations of defect centers existing in...
High temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cells
Ergün, Dilek; Eroğlu, İnci; Department of Chemical Engineering (2009)
It is desirable to increase the operation temperature of proton exchange membrane fuel cells above 100oC due to fast electrode kinetics, high tolerance to fuel impurities and simple thermal and water management. In this study; the objective is to develop a high temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cell. Phosphoric acid doped polybenzimidazole membrane was chosen as the electrolyte material. Polybenzimidazole was synthesized with different molecular weights (18700-118500) by changing the synthesis condi...
Low temperature formation of calcium-deficient hydroxyapatite-PLA/PLGA composites
Durucan, Caner (2000-09-15)
Hydroxyapatite-biodegradable polymer composites have been formed by a low temperature chemical route. Precomposite structures were prepared by combining alpha-Ca-3(PO4)(2) (alpha-tricalcium phosphate or alpha-TCP) with poly(L-lactic) acid and poly(DL-lactide-co-glycolide) copolymers. The final composite structure was achieved by in situ hydrolysis of alpha-TCP to Ca-9(HPO4)(PO4)(5)OH (calcium deficient hydroxyapatite or CDHAp) either in solvent cast or pressed precomposites. Hydrolysis was performed at 56 d...
