Application of power ultrasound, offers potential in the degree of control over the preparation and properties of nanocrystalline zeolites, which have become increasingly important due to their diverse emerging applications. Synthesis of silicalite-1 nanocrystals from a clear solution was carried out at 348 K in the absence and presence of ultrasound of 300 and 600 W, in an attempt to investigate the effects of sonication, in this respect. Variation of the particle size and particle size distribution was followed with respect to time using a laser light scattering device with a detector set to collect back-scattered light at an angle of 173 degrees. Product yield was determined and the crystallinity was analyzed by X-ray diffraction for selected samples collected during the syntheses. Nucleation, particle growth and crystallization rates all increased as a result of the application of ultrasound and highly crystalline silicalite-1 of smaller average particle diameter could be obtained at shorter synthesis times. The particle size distributions of the product populations, however, remained similar for similar average particle sizes. The rate of increase in yield was also speeded up in the presence of ultrasound, while the final product yield was not affected. Increasing the power of ultrasound, from 300 to 600 W, increased the particle growth rate and the crystalline domain size, and decreased both the final particle diameter and the time required for the particle growth to reach completion, while its effect on nucleation was unclear.


Effect of column rectangularity on CFRP-strengthened RC flat plates
ERDOĞAN, HAKAN; Binici, Barış; Ozcebe, Guney (2011-07-01)
This study presents experimental and analytical research that focused on the behaviour of carbon-fibre-reinforced polymer (CFRP)-strengthened flat-slab specimens for punching shear enhancement. Seven 0.75-scale flat-slab specimens representing interior slab-column connections with different column aspect ratios varying from 1 to 3 were tested. The results revealed that increasing column rectangularity had a detrimental effect on column punching strength of all specimens. A strength increase of at least 30% ...
A Corpus-based analysis of genre-specific discourse of research in the phd theses and research articles in international relations
Küçükoğlu, Ece Selva; Enginarlar, Hüsnü; Department of English Language Teaching (2016)
This study aims to investigate the genre-specific features of the introduction parts of the PhD theses (PhDTs) and research articles (RAs) in International Relations (IR). The study examines the followings: the use of lexicogrammatical features, the move step structure to find out the fitness of the CARS Model (Swales, 2004), and the rhetorical features of the two corpora. In this regard, a mixed methods research was designed to answer the research questions. Two corpora were utilized: the introduction part...
Effect of microfluidized onion skin addition on the quality of extrudates
Bilgin, Elçin; Şensoy, İlkay; Mert, Behiç; Department of Food Engineering (2016)
The objective of the study was to investigate the effect of microfluidized onion skin addition on the features of expansion characteristics, water absorption index, water solubility index, color, texture and sensory of extruded products. In addition, addition of microfluidized and non – microfluidized onion skins to extruded products were compared. Increasing microfluidized onion skin content in the samples caused a reduction in sectional expansion index (SEI), volumetric expansion index (VEI) and porosity ...

The present study aims to systematically investigate the freezing-induced changes that occur at multiple levels of organization of collagen nanostructure in the engineered tissues (ET). Collagen is a major constituent of the extracellular matrix (ECM) of biological tissues, and is also used for scaffold of engineered tissues and biomaterials [1, 2]. Given its abundance and widespread physiological function in vivo, a proper understanding of the relationships between the collagen’s structure, properties, and...
Effect of chemical structure on properties of polyurethanes: Temperature responsiveness and biocompatibility
Komez, Aylin; Buyuksungur, Senem; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat; Hasırcı, Nesrin (2018-09-01)
Polyurethanes are known as one of the most biocompatible and inherently blood-compatible materials and have a wide range of applications in the medical field due to their controllable structure and properties. Durability, elasticity, elastomeric structure, fatigue resistance, versatility, and easy acceptance by the biological media after the application makes these polymers preferable in medical area. In this study, polyurethane films were prepared using poly(propylene-ethylene glycol) and either toluene-2,...
