Electrical and Structural Properties of RE3Ba5Cu8O18 (RE=Y, Sm and Nd) Superconductors

Topal, Ugur
Ozkan, Husnu
This paper presents the synthesis and characterization of the new superconducting compounds with nominal composition, RE3Ba5Cu8O18, RE=Y, Sm and Nd. The onset critical temperatures of the present samples are 97.5, 97 and 95 K for the RE=Y, Sm and Nd, respectively. The first two values are the highest for the RE-Ba-Cu-O superconductors recorded to date. The RE3Ba5Cu8O18 samples crystallize in the orthorhombic system, with increased unit cell volume as Sm and Nd replace the element Y.


Structural Properties of Pristine and Defected ZnO Nanosheets Under Biaxial Strain: Molecular Dynamics Simulations
Kilic, Mehmet Emin; Erkoç, Şakir (2016-02-01)
Structural properties of defected zinc oxide nanosheets have been investigated by performing classical molecular dynamics simulations. An atomistic potential energy function has been used to represent the interactions among the atoms. Different types of defects (vacancy, exchange, Stone Wales like, line defect and ring-like) at the central region have been considered for the nanosheets. Strain has been applied to the generated ZnO nanostructures along both x- and y-axes, which has been realized at two diffe...
Thermal characterization and kinetic analysis of sara fractions of crude oils by TGA and DSC methods
Gül, Kıymet Gizem; Kök, Mustafa Verşan; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2011)
In this thesis, four different crude oil samples and their saturate, aromatic and resin fractions were analyzed by two different thermoanalytical methods, thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The experiments were performed at three different heating rates (5, 10 and 15 °C/min) under air atmosphere. Same gas flow rate and same pressure were applied to all samples. The aim is to determine the kinetic analysis and combustion behavior of crude oils and their fractions an...
Electrochemical synthesis of new conjugated polymers based on carbazole and furan units
Oguzturk, H. Esra; TİRKEŞ, SEHA; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (2015-08-01)
In this study, synthesis of four new monomers; 3,6-di(2-furyl)-9H-carbazole (M1), 3,6-di(2-furyl)-9-ethyl-carbazole (M2), 2,7-di(2-furyl)-9-H-carbazole (M3), 2,7-di(2-furyl)-9-(tridecan-7-yl)-9H-carbazole (M4), was achieved via Stifle cross-coupling reaction. The monomers were electrochemically polymerized, via repetitive cycling in acetonitrile-tetrabutylammonium hexafluorophosphate electrolytic medium. Optical and electrochemical properties of the monomers and their corresponding polymers were investigate...

Camurlu, Pinar; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yilmaz, Faruk; Yagci, Yusuf; Galli, Giancarlo (Informa UK Limited, 2007-03-01)
Block and random copolymers having 3-methyl thienylmethacrylate and 6-(4-cyanobiphenyl-4'-oxy) hexyl acrylate moieties were utilized as precursor polymers in this study. Electrochemical copolymerizations were performed in the presence of thiophene or pyrrole in acetonitrile-tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB) at constant potential. The characterizations were performed by cyclic voltammetry (CV), fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermal gravime...
Electrochromic properties of a soluble conducting polymer of 1-benzyl-2,5-di(thiophene-2-yl)-1H-pyrrole
Tarkuc, S.; Sahmetlioglu, E.; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Akhmedov, I. M.; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 2007-02-20)
In this study, synthesis of a thiophene functionalized monomer, 1-benzyl-2,5-di(thiophene-2-yl)-1H-pyrrole (SNBS) was achieved. A new polythiophene derivative was synthesized by both chemical and electrochemical polymerization. The polymer synthesized via chemical oxidative method was soluble in organic solvents and characterized by nuclear magnetic resonance (H-1 and C-13 NMR) spectroscopy. The average molecular weight of the chemically synthesized polymer was determined by gel permeation chromatography (G...
