Iodometric Back Titration (TBT) and Spectrophotometric (SPM) methods are two common methods used in the determination of hydrogen sulfide concentrations in anoxic basins, like in the upper sections of the Black Sea anoxic waters. Although the results obtained by both methods are in agreement when the concentrations of sulfide are higher than 30 mu M/l, IBT analysis gives more reproducible results compared to SPM analysis. On the other hand, the reproducibility of the SPM is better than that of IBT method when the concentration of sulfides is less than 30 mu M/l, but in this case SPM method provides lower results compared to IBT method. This discrepancy can be explained by the presence of the hydrogen sulfide oxidation products (i.e., thiosulfate) formed as a result of aeration of water samples. These products consume the iodine added to the sample. Therefore, they are measured as hydrogen sulfide in the IBT method, but are not detected by the SPM method since they do not react with the N,N-dimethyl-p-phenylendiamine - FeCl3 mixed reagent.

A comparative study of spectrophotometric and iodometric back titration methods for hydrogen sulfide determination in anoxic Black Sea waters
Gokmen, S; Romanov, AS; Basturk, O; Konovalov, SK (1997-06-19)
Iodometric Back Titration (IBT) and Spectrophotometric (SPM) determination are two commonly used methods for the determination of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) concentration in sea water. These two methods were applied in parallel for analysis of Black Sea anoxic waters and artificial solutions containing different H2S concentrations. The results of the SPM and IBT methods are in agreement when the HIS concentration in sea water is higher than 30 mu M and the precision of IBT is higher than that of SPM method. How...
An ab initio study of dissociative adsorption of H-2 on FeTi surfaces
Izanlou, A.; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri (2010-02-01)
Dissociative adsorption of H-2 on clean FeTi (001), (110) and (111) surfaces is investigated via ab initio pseudopotential-plane wave method. Adsorption energies of H atom and H-2 molecule on Fe and Ti terminated (001) and (111) and FeTi (110) surfaces are calculated on high symmetry adsorption sites. It is shown that, top site is the most stable site for horizontal H-2 molecule adsorption on (001) and (111) surfaces for both terminations. The most favorable site for H atom adsorption on these surfaces howe...
Direct synthesis of hydrogen storage alloys from their oxides
Tan, Serdar; Öztürk, Tayfur; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2011)
The aim of this study is the synthesis of hydrogen storage compounds by electrodeoxidation technique which offers an inexpensive and rapid route to synthesize compounds from oxide mixtures. Within the scope of this study, two hydrogen storage compounds, FeTi and Mg2Ni, are aimed to be produced by this technique. In the first part, effect of sintering conditions on synthesis of FeTi was studied. For this purpose, oxide pellets made out of Fe2O3-TiO2 powders were sintered at temperatures between 900 °C – 1300...
Investigation of single-walled carbon nanotube growth parameters using alcohol catalytic chemical vapour deposition
Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah (2005-10-01)
A detailed parametric study of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) synthesized in powder form and on substrates using the alcohol catalytic chemical vapour deposition (ACCVD) method is reported. As-grown SWNTs were analysed using transmission electron microscopy (TEM), field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), Raman spectroscopy and UV-vis-NIR spectroscopy to obtain structural and electronic information. We found that nucleation and growth of SWNTs occurs within seconds after introduction of ...
An evaluation of potential sampling locations in a reservoir with emphasis on conserved spatial correlation structure
YENİLMEZ, Firdes; Duzgun, Sebnem; Aksoy, Ayşegül (2015-01-01)
In this study, kernel density estimation (KDE) was coupled with ordinary two-dimensional kriging (OK) to reduce the number of sampling locations in measurement and kriging of dissolved oxygen (DO) concentrations in Porsuk Dam Reservoir (PDR). Conservation of the spatial correlation structure in the DO distribution was a target. KDE was used as a tool to aid in identification of the sampling locations that would be removed from the sampling network in order to decrease the total number of samples. Accordingl...
