Hydrogen desorption kinetic parameters of MgH2 compounds were measured and compared with published gas solid reaction models. The compounds investigated in this study were as-received MgH2, ball milled MgH2, and MgH2 ball milled with 9Ni-2Mg-Y catalyst compound. It was determined that different models were necessary to fit the hydrogen desorption data collected at different temperatures on the same sample, indicating that desorption mechanisms changed with respect to temperature. Addition of (9Ni-2Mg-Y) alloy as a catalyst to MgH2 increased the hydrogen desorption capacity of MgH2 from zero (for as-received MgH2) to about 5 wt% at 350 degrees C within 500 s. The activation energy value was determined as 187 kJ/mol H-2 for the as-received MgH2, 137 kJ/mol H-2 for 20 h ball milled MgH2, and 62 kJ/mol H-2 for 20 h ball milled MgH2-10 wt% (9Ni-2Mg-Y) nano-composite by the Arrhenius and Kissinger methods. Moreover, the integral heat of H-2 desorption for the MgH2-10 wt% (9Ni-2Mg-Y) nano-composite was measured to be about 78 +/- 0.5 kJ/mol H-2 by adsorption micro-calorimetry consistent with the results of the Arrhenius and Kissinger methods.

Determination of ion dose and profiles in Ge-74 and Sn-120 implanted silicon layers by PIXE, NAA, RBS and SIMS
Belin, B; Bode, P; Turan, Raşit; Van Meerten, TG (2004-01-01)
Implanted Ge-74 and Sn-121 concentrations in silicon (Si) layers were investigated by particle induced X-ray emission (PIXE), instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA), Rutherford backscattering spectrometry (RBS) and secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS). Slight differences were observed in the results obtained. It was shown that PIXE and INAA are as powerful as the traditional RBS and SIMS spectroscopy for the investigation of thin layered Si.

This research presents the combustion behavior of lignite under different reaction pressures. Lignite from Alpagut, Corum of Turkey was combusted in its run off mine (ROM) condition under three different pressure levels of 172, 345, 517 kPa (25, 50, 75 psi). Experiments were done in a fully controlled temperature regime in an isolated combustion tube that operated in coordination with a continuous gas analyzer. Combustion behavior of lignite under different pressures was characterized by effluent gas analys...
Characterization of BPN Pyrotechnic Composition Containing Micro- and Nanometer-Sized Boron Particles
Koc, Suzan; Ulaş, Abdullah; Yilmaz, Nil Ezgi (Wiley, 2015-10-01)
The effect of micro- and nanometer-sized boron particles on boron-potassium nitrate (BPN) ignition composition was investigated in this paper. As a starting point, thermochemical calculations were made to determine the most promising ignition compositions. Both stoichiometric and fuel-rich formulations of BPN were produced to observe the performance variation due to boron content. Particle morphology of boron particles and the surface structure of the ignition compositions were investigated by SEM. The infl...
Study of W boson production in pPb collisions at root(NN)-N-S=5.02 TeV
Adam, W.; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2015-11-01)
The first study of W boson production in pPb collisions is presented, for bosons decaying to a muon or electron, and a neutrino. The measurements are based on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 34.6 nb(-1) at a nucleon-nucleon centre-of-mass energy of root(NN)-N-S = 5.02 TeV, collected by the CMS experiment. The W boson differential cross sections, lepton charge asymmetry, and forward-backward asymmetries are measured for leptons of transverse momentum exceeding 25 GeV/c, and as a fu...
Reaction kinetics of calcium chloride - ammonia reactive system and theoretical simulation of heat and mass transfer in porous slab pellets
Karakaş Helvacı, Zeynep; Uludağ, Yusuf; Karakaş, Gürkan; Department of Chemical Engineering (2023-1-24)
The reactive systems between ammoniated CaCl2 and NH3 were investigated in terms of heat and mass transport phenomena coupled with reaction kinetics. The reversible reaction rate based on the Langmuir-Hinshelwood model was suggested to express the net reaction rate, including both the adsorption and desorption terms. Experiments at three temperatures were conducted to evaluate the kinetic parameters, pre-exponential factors, and activation energies. The parameters were evaluated by Non-Linear Regression (NL...
