In this study, polymer enhanced ultrafiltration (PEUF) was used to remove boron from a geothermal water sample. The effect of co-ions such as chloride and sulfate on boron removal was investigated using previously synthesized poly (vinyl amino-N, N'-bis-propane diol) (GPVA) and its copolymers with DADMAC. The presence of co-anions and use of real waste water did not significantly reduce boron retentions and permeate fluxes. At optimum operating conditions 98% boron removal was achieved. It was demonstrated that 97% of complexation capacity of polymer can be recovered and reused by two-cycle decomplexation at pH 4.

Novel boron specific copolymers with quaternary amine segments for efficient boron removal via PEUF

In this study, a copolymer, poly (vinyl amino-N, N'-bis-propane diol-co-DADMAC) (GPVA-co-DADMAC) was synthesized in three comonomer ratios (2%, 5% and 10%) and efficiently exploited for boron removal via polymer enhanced ultrafiltration (PEUF). Boron concentration could be reduced from 10 ppm down to 0.8 ppm by the employment of novel copolymer in continuous PEUF at pH 9 and boron-to-polymer mass ratio (loading) of 0.001. Polymer precipitation was not observed even after complexation with boron. Boron reten...
Nanocomposites based on recycled poly(ethylene terepthalate)
Tolga, Aslı; Yılmazer, Ülkü; Department of Chemical Engineering (2005)
In this study, the effects of glycol type, organoclay type and concentration on the final properties of nanocomposites based on recycled poly(ethylene terephthalate) was investigated. For this purpose, first recycled PET was glycolysed and after that unsaturated polyester-montmorillonite nanocomposites were synthesized by using three different types of glycols (i.e. ethylene glycol (EG), propylene glycol (PG) and diethylene glycol (DEG)). As the first step, all the compositions were prepared by Cloisite 30B...
Production and characterization of boron containing flame retardant polyamide-6 and polypropylene composites and fibers
Doğan, Mehmet; Bayramlı, Erdal; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2011)
The main objective of this study was to produce flame retardant polyamide-6 (PA-6) and polypropylene (PP) composites and fibers containing boron compounds. The synergistic effect on flame retardancy of boron compounds (boron silicon containing oligomer (BSi), zinc borate (ZnB), boron phosphate (BPO4), metal oxide doped BPO4 and lanthanum borate (LaB)) with conventional flame retardants were investigated. The synergistic effect of nano-clay with commercial flame retardants was also investigated in order to r...
Effects of chain extension and branching on the properties of recycled poly(ethylene terephtkalate)-organoclay nanocomposites
Keyfoğlu, Ali Emrah; Yılmazer, Ülkü; Department of Chemical Engineering (2004)
In this study, the effects of chain extension and branching on the properties of nanocomposites produced from recycled poly(ethylene terephthalate) and organically modified clay were investigated. As the chain extension/branching agent, maleic anhydride (MA) and pyromellitic dianhydride (PMDA) were used. The nanocomposites were prepared by twin-screw extrusion, followed by injection molding. Recycled poly(ethylene terephthalate), was mixed with 2, 3 and 4 weight % of organically modified montmorillonite. Du...
Electrical and mechanical properties of carbon black reinforced high density polyethylene/low density polyethylene composites
Altıntaş, Bekir; Küçükyavuz, Zuhal; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2004)
In this study, the High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) blends prepared by Plasticorder Brabender were strengthened by adding Carbon Black (CB). Blends were prepared at 190 °C. Amounts of LDPE were changed to 30, 40, 50 and 60 percent by the volume and the percent amounts of CB were changed to 5, 10,15, 20 and 30 according to the total volume. Thermal and morphological properties were investigated by using Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC), Scanning Electron Microscope ...
