Flotation and adsorption characteristics of the most commonly used cationic and anionic collectors with high grade orthoclase were investigated through the electrokinetic potential measurement, microflotation, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) studies. According to the obtained results, orthoclase had high flotation recovery with amine and oleic acid based (OAB) collector at certain pH ranges no flotation response was observed with petroleum sulfonate at different pHs. In contrast to the flotation recovery differences, the electrokinetic potential measurements, FTIR and AFM analyses presented similar adsorption characteristics for all collectors. The results of electrokinetic potential tests showed that amine had a strong influence on the zeta potential of orthoclase. While amine turned the zeta potentials of orthoclase from negative to positive, sulfonate and OAB collector provided slightly more negative zeta potentials at certain pHs. In the case of FTIR and AFM analyses, each collector-treated orthoclase (CTO) sample displayed similar characteristic FTIR bands of CH2 group and micro topographical collector coated patches with different intensities. However, the interactions of each collector with orthoclase surfaces were altered by rinsing with acetone indicating that the interactions were mostly through the electrostatic forces and/or hydrogen bonding.


A comparative study of the electronic properties of aluminum nitride compounds
Mohammad, Rezek; Katırcıoğlu, Şenay (2016-01-01)
Electronic properties of aluminum nitride in wurtzite, zinc-blende, and rock-salt phases are investigated by a full potential-linearized augmented plane waves method based on density functional theory within standard local density approximation and its four improved versions. Local density approximation corrected by the generalized gradient functional of Perdew-Wang-Engel-Vosko is found to be more successful than the other generalized gradient functional approximations considered in this work for providing ...
A study on the effects of gamma radiation on the properties of polycarbonate
Kinalır, Kerim Gökhan; Usanmaz, Ali; Kaynak, Cevdet; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2011)
This thesis aims to investigate the effects of gamma radiation on the properties of polycarbonate, an engineering thermoplastic which has a wide range of applications. A commercial grade polycarbonate resin, after being shaped into the required specimen forms by injection molding, was irradiated with different doses up to 180 kGy. Tensile strength was found to decrease with increasing dose. The lowest values of tensile modulus, flexural modulus and flexural strength were obtained at 96 kGy, which is also th...
A theoretical study of chemical doping and width effect on zigzag graphene nanoribbons
Pekoz, Rengin; Erkoç, Şakir (Elsevier BV, 2009-12-01)
The energetics and the electronic properties of nitrogen- and boron-doped graphene nanoribbons with zigzag edges have been investigated using density functional theory calculations. For the optimized geometry configurations, vibrational frequency analysis and wavefunction stability tests have been carried out. Different doping site optimizations for a model nanoribbon have been performed and formation energy values of these sites revealed that zigzag edgesite for both of the dopants were the most favorable ...
A study on the effects of catalysts on pyrolysis and combustion characteristics of Turkish lignite in oxy-fuel conditions
ABBASI-ATIBEH, Ehsan; Yozgatlıgil, Ahmet (Elsevier BV, 2014-01-01)
The catalytic pyrolysis and combustion characteristics of low calorific value Turkish lignite in various ambient conditions were explored and the evolution of gases during pyrolysis tests was examined using a Thermogravimetric Analyzer coupled with a Fourier Transform Infrared spectrometer (TGA-FTIR). Potassium carbonate (K2CO3), calcium hydroxide (Ca(OH)(2)) and iron (III) oxide (Fe2O3) were employed as precursors of the catalysts and compared to the Raw-form (no catalyst added) to investigate the effects ...
A semi-empirical analysis of dye adsorption and electron transport in dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs)
Ameri, Mohsen; Samavat, Feridoun; Mohajerani, Ezeddin (2015-01-01)
In order to provide a comprehensive understanding of dye adsorption parameters and their relation with the structural and transport properties of dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs), a combination of experiments and modeling of the dye adsorption and electron transport characteristics with respect to the photoanode thickness was performed. The obtained experimental data include scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images, UV-Vis data, steady state current-voltage (J-V) characteristics and open circuit voltage ...
