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 6-12% at the maximum oleic acid concentrations (2-3 wt%). The increase of relative viscosity with concentration was linear. The lipid-SC-CO2 mixtures were Newtonian. The Arrhenius equation, modified by the excess Gibbs free energy using solubility parameters of the components based on the regular solution theory, predicted the liquid phase and the fluid phase viscosities of the lipid-SC-CO2 mixtures within +/-25% and +/-1%, respectively.

Dehydration of aqueous aprotic solvent mixtures by pervaporation
Sarıalp, Gökhan; Kalıpçılar, Halil; Yılmaz, Levent; Department of Chemical Engineering (2012)
Aprotic solvents are organic solvents which do not easily react with a substance dissolved in it and they do not exchange protons despite of their high ion and polar group dissolving power. Therefore, this characteristic property makes aprotic solvents very suitable intermediates in many industries producing pharmaceuticals, textile auxiliaries, plasticizers, stabilizers, adhesives and ink. Dehydration of these mixtures and recirculation of valuable materials are substantial issues in industrial application...
Polybenzimidazole based nanocomposite membranes with enhanced proton conductivity for high temperature PEM fuel cells
Ozdemir, Yagmur; Uregen, Nurhan; DEVRİM, YILSER (2017-01-26)
In this study, phosphoric acid doped PBI nanocomposite membranes were prepared by dispersion of various amounts of inorganic nanoparticles in PBI polymer followed by phosphoric acid (H3PO4) doping for high temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cells (HT-PEMFC). All of the PBI composite membranes were cast from the same FBI polymer with the same molecular weight. Titanium dioxide (TiO2), silicon dioxide (SiO2) and inorganic proton conductor zirconium phosphate (ZrP) were used as inorganic fillers. The PB...
Steady-state parallel plate apparatus for measurement of diffusion coefficient in supercritical carbon dioxide
Tuan, DQ; Yener, Meryem Esra; Zollweg, JA; Harriott, P; Rizvi, SSH (1999-02-01)
A new, steady-state experimental system for measurement of the Fickian diffusion coefficients for solutes in supercritical carbon dioxide (SC-CO2) was designed and evaluated. Mass transfer between a Liquid solute and SC-CO2 was carried out in a parallel plate geometry where a porous metal sheet, immersed in the liquid phase, stabilized the interface. The SC-CO2 flowed over the porous metal sheet containing the liquid phase which was presaturated with CO2. The use of the porous metal sheet and a thin mobile ...

A template-assisted synthetic method including the thermal polycondensation of guanidine hydrochloride (GndCl) was utilized to synthesize highly-organized mesoporous graphitic carbon nitride (mpg-C3N4) photocatalysts. Comprehensive structural analysis of the mpg-C3N4 materials were performed by XPS, XRD, FT-IR, BET and solid-state NMR spectroscopy. Photocatalytic performance of the mpg-C3N4 materials was studied for the photodegradation of several dyes under visible and UV light illumination as a function o...
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...
