Kinetic studies were performed to clarify the Kornblum-Delamare reaction mechanism of bicyclic endoperoxides. Ascaridol and 1,4-diphenyl-2,3-dioxa-bicyclo[2.2.2]oct-5-ene, not having alpha-protons, did not provide any reaction with bases. Reaction with different bases has revealed that reaction rates for the base-catalyzed decomposition of 2,3-dioxa-bicyclo[2.2.2]oct-5-ene depend strongly on the base strength. The stronger the base used, the faster the conversion rate. Reaction rate values k of endoperoxides with different skeletons were also studied with NEt3. It has been noted that the strength of the base plays the dominant role in determining the rate of the reactions.

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...
Experimental investigation of surface roughness effects on the flow boiling of R134a in microchannels
Jafari, Rahim; Okutucu Özyurt, Hanife Tuba; Ünver, Hakkı Özgür; Bayer, Özgür (2016-12-01)
This study experimentally investigates the effect of surface roughness on the hydrodynamic and thermal performance of microchannel evaporators. Three micro-evaporators of the same dimensions and different surface roughness have been fabricated by micro-WEDM. Each micro-evaporator consists of forty rectangular microchannels of 700 mu m height, 250 mu m width, and 19 mm length. A microscale vapor compression refrigeration cycle has been constructed to carry out the experiments. R134a is used as the refrigeran...
Investigation of the performance of colloidal LiFePO4 particles in suspension flow battery
Yıldız, Bayram; Aşkar, Yasemin; Coşkun, Elif; Maviş, Bora; Çınar, Simge (2021-06-12)
In this study, colloidal LiFePO4 particles were synthesized through solvothermal route. Effect of solvothermal method parameters on formation of colloidal LiFePO4 was investigated. Post-processing treatments were found effective to obtain non-aggregated colloidal particles. The rheological behavior of aqueous suspensions including electroactive material was examined in terms of salt, electroactive material concentration and carbon content. A three-electrode systems was used to analyze electrochemical perfor...
Determination of kinetic parameters and hydrogen desorption characteristics of MgH2-10 wt% (9Ni-2Mg-Y) nano-composite
Pourabdoli, Mehdi; Raygan, Shahram; Abdizadeh, Hossein; Üner, Deniz (2013-09-10)
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) all...
Investigation on replication of microfluidic channels by hot embossing
Yıldırım, Ender; Arıkan, Mehmet Ali Sahir (2017-01-01)
In this study, effects of embossing temperature, time, and force on production of a microfluidic device were investigated. Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) substrates were hot embossed by using a micromilled aluminum mold. The process parameters were altered to observe the variation of replication rate in width and depth as well as symmetry of the replicated microfluidic channels. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) on the experimental results indicated that embossing temperature was the most important process param...
