Silver(0) nanoparticles stabilized by titanosilicate (ETS-10) framework were synthesized by following a simple two step procedure involving the incorporation of silver(I) (Ag+) ions into ETS-10 matrix via ion-exchange with extra framework Na+ and K+ cations followed by their reduction with sodium borohydride (NaBH4) in aqueous medium all at room temperature. Silver(0) nanoparticles dispersed in the ETS-10 matrix were collected as gray powders and characterized by using advanced analytical methods including ICP-OES, P-XRD, XPS, FE-SEM, TEM, HR-TEM, DR-UV-vis, Raman spectroscopies and N-2 adsorption-desorption technique. Overall result shows the formation of silver(0) nanoparticles dispersed within the framework of ETS-10 without causing alteration in ETS-10 lattice and mesopore formation. The changes in the local titanate (TiO32-) structure of ETS-10 resulting from the incorporation of silver(I) ions and formation of silver(0) nanoparticles within the titanosilicate (xTiO(2) (1 - x)SiO2) framework were extensively studied on silver(I)-exchanged and silver(0) nanoparticles containing samples, separately. Although maintaining of structural integrity of host material had been monitored for silver(I)-ETS-10, detailed Raman analyses of silver(0)-ETS-10 samples showed significant changes in the titanate quantum wires of ETS-10 framework depending on the silver loading. Total collapse of these units was observed in the silver(0)-ETS-10 samples with high silver loading (15 wt.% silver(I)). Moreover, the catalytic application of silver(0)-ETS-10 was demonstrated in the aerobic oxidation of diphenyl carbinol to benzophenone, which showed that silver(0)-ETS-10 is a highly active and selective catalyst in this reaction. Additionally, they were found to be highly stable catalyst for this transformation.


Effect of thermal treatment on secondary structure and conformational change of mushroom polyphenol oxidase (PPO) as food quality related enzyme: A FTIR study
Baltacioglu, Hande; Bayındırlı, Alev; Severcan, Mete; Severcan, Feride (2015-11-15)
In order to understand the conformational changes of polyphenol oxidase (PPO), which is a food quality related enzyme, after thermal treatment, secondary structure changes of the enzyme were analyzed by using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and compared with the change in enzyme activity in the temperature range of 25-80 degrees C. Fourier self-deconvolution, neural network (NN) and curve-fitting analysis were applied to the amide I band of FTIR spectra for detail analysis of secondary struct...
Effect of gramicidin S on the dipalmitoylphosphatidyl-glycerol thermotropic phase transition in DPPG/GS systems: A mathematical approach
Stan, Cristina; Cristescu, C. P.; Severcan, Feride; Dorohoi, Dana (Informa UK Limited, 2006-01-01)
We present a mathematical approach to the experimental data recorded via Fourier transform-infrared spectroscopy regarding the influence of the concentration of the antimicrobial peptide gramicidin S (GS) on the thermotropic phase transition of the dipalmitoylphosphatidyl-glycerol (DPPG) lipid bilayer membrane in DPPG/GS systems. The model is based on the influence of the GS concentration on the parameters of a nonlinear damped oscillator, which models the CH2 symmetric stretching band.
Effect of impact modifier on the properties of poly (ethylene terephthalate)-organoclay nanocomposites
Yılmazer, Ülkü; Alyamac, Elif (2006-11-30)
The effects of component concentrations and addition order of the components, on the final properties of ternary nanocomposites composed of amorphous poly (ethylene terephthalate) matrix, organically modified clay, and an ethylene / methyl acrylate / glycidyl methacrylate (E-MAGMA) terpolymer were studied. All formulations were prepared by melt compounding of the components with a two-step mixing procedure in a corotating twin-screw extruder. Considering the X-Ray Diffraction, SEM, impact and strain at brea...
Effect of fluorine substituted benzothiadiazole on electro-optical properties of donor-acceptor-donor type monomers and their polymers
Çakal, Deniz; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Elsevier BV, 2020-11-01)
A series of trimeric monomers bearing thiophene donor units and fluorinated analogues of benzothiadiazole acceptor units was synthesized via donor-acceptor-donor approach and polymerized electrochemically in order to investigate the effect of fluorine atom on electro-optical properties of both monomers and their corresponding polymers. All monomers exhibited solvatochromic and fluorescent properties. The introduction of fluorine atom into the conjugated backbone increased the oxidation potentials. Upon movi...

The solution behaviour of Na, Ba, Zn and Al ionomers of methyl methacrylate-methacrylic acid copolymer (P(MMA-MAA)) with different ion contents has been studied by viscosity and dipole moment measurements. Two solvents with different character are chosen for viscosity measurements: dioxane (ε = 2.22) and acetone (ε = 20.7). The expected polyelectrolyte behaviour of the ionomers in acetone is reflected by the viscometric measurements. Mean squared dipole moment 〈μ2〉 values are calculated over a temperature r...
