Catalytic effect of alkaline earth oxides on carbothermic formation of hexagonal boron nitride

Topkaya, Yavuz Ali
Effect of MgO, CaO and BaO on carbothermic formation of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) was investigated. B(2)O(3-)C mixtures containing alkaline earth oxide additives were reacted at 1500 degrees C for 30-120 min in nitrogen atmosphere. Formed phases in the reaction products were determined by powder-XRD analyses, and amounts of the constituents were determined by chemical analyses. Particle size and morphology of the formed h-BN powders were examined by FESEM and particle size distributions were determined by particle size analyzer. Addition of alkaline earth oxides was found to increase the amount and grain size of h-BN significantly and to decrease the amount of B(4)C formed in the system. Investigated alkaline earth oxides presented similar catalytic effects according to chemical analyses and FESEM observations. While the average particle size of h-BN powder obtained from plain mixture was 149 nm, those obtained from MgO, CaO and BaO containing mixtures were 297, 367 and 429 run, respectively.

Thermoluminescence properties of Al doped ZnO nanoparticles
IŞIK, MEHMET; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2018-08-15)
ZnO nanoparticles doped with aluminum (AZO nanoparticles) were investigated using low temperature thermoluminescence (TL) and structural characterization experiments. TL experiments were performed on AZO nanoparticles in the temperature range of 10-300 K. TL curve presented one intensive peak around 123 K and two overlapped peaks to intensive peak around 85 and 150 K for heating rate of 0.1 K/s. Curve fitting and initial rise methods were used to find the activation energies of associated trapping centers. ...
Characterization by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy of hydroxyapatite co-doped with zinc and fluoride
Uysal, I.; Severcan, F.; Evis, Zafer (Elsevier BV, 2013-09-01)
Pure and Zn2+ and/or F- doped hydroxyapatite (HA) were synthesized by the precipitation method and detection of ion incorporations into the HA structure was investigated by a non invasive Fourier transform infrared (FAR) spectroscopic technique. The synthesized materials were sintered at 1100 degrees C for 1 h. The Zn2+ addition amount was kept constant at 2 mol% whereas F- amount was changed. The weight fractions of the HA and CaO were calculated by Rietveld analysis by using GSAS. Co-doping of Zn2+ and F-...
Morphology and magnetic properties of barium hexaferrite ceramics synthesized in x wt% NaCl-(100-x) wt% KCL molten salts
Aydogan, Eda; Kaya, Serap; Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (Elsevier BV, 2014-01-01)
Micron size barium hexaferrite (BaFe12O19) platelets were prepared by the molten-salt synthesis method in various weight proportions of NaCl-KCl salt mixtures as a liquid medium. The effect of molten salt composition-x wt% NaCl and (100-x) wt% KCl-on the amount of barium hexaferrite phase formation, as well as, on the morphology and magnetic properties of the final products are discussed. Inductively coupled plasma-mass spectroscopy (ICP-MS) was used to determine the solubility of the starting materials in ...
Dielectric and piezoelectric properties of PZT ceramics doped with strontium and lanthanum
Kalem, Volkan; Çam, İbrahim; Timucin, Muharrem (Elsevier BV, 2011-05-01)
PZT based piezoelectric ceramics obtained by doping with various levels of Sr2+ and La3+, designated as PSLZT, were prepared by conventional processing techniques. The effects of Sr2+ and La3+ additions, and that of the Zr/Ti ratio on microstructure, on phase constitution, and on the dielectric and piezoelectric properties were investigated. XRD data revealed that all PSLZT compositions had perovskite structure in which increasing Sr and/or decreasing Zr/Ti ratio increased the tetragonality. In PSLZT cerami...
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...
