Zeta potential measurements on three clays from Turkey and effects of clays on coal flotation

Hussain, SA

There is a growing trend of characterizing coal and coal wastes in order to study the effect of clays present in them during coal washing, Coarse wastes from the Zonguldak Coal Washery, Turkey, were characterized and found to contain kaolinite, illite, and chlorite, These three clays, obtained in almost pure form from various locations in Turkey, have been subjected to X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis to assess their purity and zeta potential measurements in order to evaluate their properties in terms of their surface charge and point of zero charge (pzc) values. It was found from XRD data that these clays were almost pure and their electrokinetic potential should therefore be representative of their colloidal behavior. All three clay minerals were negatively charged over the range from pH 2.5 to 11. Chlorite and illite have pzc at pH 3 and pH 2.5, respectively, whereas kaolinite has no pzc, The effect of these clays in Zonguldak coal, wastes, and black waters on coal flotation was studied by floating artificial mixtures of Zonguldak. clean coal (4.5% ash) and individual clay. The flotation tests on coal/individual clay revealed that each clay influences coal flotation differently according to its type and amount, Illite had the worst effect on coal floated, followed by chlorite and kaolinite. The loss of yield in coal was found to be 18% for kaolinite, 20% for chlorite, and 28% for illite, indicating the worst effect of illite and least for kaolinite during coal flotation.

Nickel(0) nanoparticles supported on bare or coated cobalt ferrite as highly active, magnetically isolable and reusable catalyst for hydrolytic dehydrogenation of ammonia borane
Manna, Joydev; AKBAYRAK, SERDAR; Özkar, Saim (Elsevier BV, 2017-12-15)
Nickel(0) nanoparticles supported on cobalt ferrite (Ni-0/CoFe2O4), polydopamine coated cobalt ferrite (NP0/PDA-CoFe2O4) or silica coated cobalt ferrite (NP0/SiO2-CoFe2O4) are prepared and used as catalysts in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia borane at room temperature. Ni-0/CoFe2O4 (4.0% wt. Ni) shows the highest catalytic activity with a TOF value of 38.3 min(-1) in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia borane at 25.0 +/- 0.1 degrees C. However, the initial catalytic activit...
Effect of pH in an aqueous medium on the surface area, pore size distribution, density, and porosity of montmorillonite
Altin, O; Özbelge, Hilmi Önder; Dogu, T (Elsevier BV, 1999-09-01)
Surface area, pore volume distribution, and porosity of montmorillonite are determined after being exposed to aqueous solutions with various pH values. For measurement, after each pH treatment the clay samples were freeze-dried in order to keep the structure of the clay same as that in the aqueous solution. Surface area and pore size distribution measurements were performed on an unmodified and four pH (2.5, 4.0, 5.5, 9.0)-adjusted clay samples using N-2 and CO2 as adsorbates. The surface area measurements ...
Voltammetric and drift spectroscopy investigation in dithiophosphinate-chalcopyrite system
Guler, T; Hicyilmaz, C; Gokagac, G; Ekmekci, Z (Elsevier BV, 2004-11-01)
The mechanism of dithiophosphinate (DTPI) adsorption on chalcopyrite was investigated by diffuse reflectance Fourier transformation (DRIFT) spectroscopy and by cyclic voltammetry (CV) at various pHs. CV experiments showed that the redox reactions occurred at a certain degree of irreversibility on the chalcopyrite surface in the absence of a collector due to preferential dissolution of iron ions in slightly acid solution and irreversible surface coverage by iron oxyhydroxides in neutral and alkaline solution...
Titania, zirconia and hafnia supported ruthenium(0) nanoparticles: Highly active hydrogen evolution catalysts
Demir Arabacı, Elif; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Özkar, Saim (Elsevier BV, 2018-12-01)
Designing a cost-effective catalyst with high activity and stability for hydrogen evolution reaction (2H(+) + 2e(-) -> H-2) is a big challenge due to increasing demand for energy. Herein, we report the electrocatalytic activity of glassy carbon electrodes with group 4 metal oxides (TiO2, ZrO2, HfO2) supported ruthenium(0) nanoparticles in hydrogen evolution reaction. Electrochemical activity of modified electrodes is investigated by recording linear sweep voltammograms in 0.5 M H2SO4 solution. The results o...
Silver Nanoparticles Synthesized by Microwave Heating: A Kinetic and Mechanistic Re-Analysis and Re-Interpretation
Özkar, Saim (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2017-12-14)
A quantitative kinetics and mechanistic re-analysis is performed of an important 2016 paper that described the formation of Ag-n nanoparticles from the polyol reduction of silver nitrate in the presence of poly(N-vinylpyrrolidone) under microwave heating. Elegantly and expertly obtained, in operando synchrotron high-energy X-ray diffraction (HEXRD) data, integrated with the microwave heating for the first time, were used to follow the Ag-n nanoparticle formation reaction in real time and to obtain time-reso...
