In this study, boron doped and undoped poly (vinyl) alcohol/bismuth-gadolina acetate (PVA/Bi-Gd) nanofibers were prepared using electrospinning technique then calcinated at 800 degrees C for 2 h. The originality of this study is the addition of boron to metal acetates. The effects of boron doping were investigated in terms of solution properties, morphological changes and thermal characteristics. The characteristics of the fibers were investigated with FT-IR, XRD, SEM and BET. The addition of boron did not only increase the thermal stability of the fibers, but also their diameters, which yielded stronger fibers. XRD analyses showed that boron doping increased the peak intensities and indicated that the boron doping enhanced the crystallite size. Moreover, no shifts were noticed in diffraction angles for boron doped and undoped samples. Therefore, boron doping did not significantly alter the lattice spacing. The SEM micrograph of the fibers showed that the addition of boron resulted in the formation of cross-linked bright-surfaced fibers. The average fiber diameter for boron doped and undoped fiber mats were 204 and 123 nm, respectively. Also, grain diameters of boron doped and undoped nanocrystalline sintered powders were measured as 140 and 118 nm, respectively. The BET results showed that boron undoped and doped Bi2O3-La2O3 nanocrystalline powder ceramic structures sintered at 800 degrees C have surface areas of 59.72 and 39.80 m(2)/g, respectively.

Fabrication of gallic acid loaded Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose nanofibers by electrospinning technique as active packaging material
Aydogdu, Ayca; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Şahin, Serpil (Elsevier BV, 2019-03-15)
The objective of this study was to encapsulate gallic acid in Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC)/poly-ethylene oxide (PEO) blend nanofiber by using electrospinning and examine the usage of nanofibers as active packaging materials. Gallic acid loaded nanofibers showed homogenous morphology. Gallic acid was loaded into nanofibers efficiently and nanofibers showed strong antioxidant activity. As the gallic acid amount increased, the TGA curves had shifted one stage to two stage degradation and degradation te...
Fabrication and characterization of boron doped BaZrO3 nanofibers via an electrospinning technique
TUNÇ, TUNCAY; Uslu, I.; Keskin, Serhat (2011-10-01)
In this study, boron doped and undoped poly(vinyl) alcohol/zirconium-barium acetate (PVA/Zr-Ba) nanofibers were prepared using an electrospinning technique then calcinated at three different temperatures; 250 degrees C, 500 degrees C, 800 degrees C for 2 h. The originality of this study is the addition of boron to metal acetates. The fibers were characterized by FT-IR, DSC, XRD and SEM. The addition of boron did not only increase the thermal stability of the fibers, but also increased their diameters, which...
The Synthesis of Complex Polymer Electrolytes Based on Alginic Acid and Poly(1-vinylimidazole) and Application in Tyrosinase Immobilization
Kartal, Muejgan; Kayahan, Senem; Bozkurt, Ayhan; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-01-01)
In this study, proton conducting polymer electrolyte networks consisting of alginic acid (AA) and poly(1-vinylimidazole) (PVI) were prepared. The polymer networks were obtained by mixing AA and PVI with several stoichiometric ratios, x (with respect to monomers). Polymer networks were characterized by FT-IR spectroscopy and their compositions were investigated by elemental analysis (EA). Enzyme entrapped polymer networks (EEPN) were produced by immobilization of tyrosinase in the AA/PVI matrix during comple...
Synthesis, crosslinking, and characterization of energetic polymers through the azidification of glycidyl ether prepolymers
Kara, S; Ozturk, E; Polat, K; Alyuruk, K (Wiley, 2004-03-15)
Low-molecular-weight atactic poly(propylene oxide) and poly(epichlorohydrin) (PECH) were chlorinated on average up to 4.42 chlorine atoms per repeat unit. A study of the products showed that chlorine substitution preferentially occurred on already chlorinated repeat units, yielding chlorine -rich and chlorine -poor sequences. As the extent of chlorine substitution increased, the glass-transition temperature of the polymers markedly increased, and their solubility in most of the organic solvents drastically ...
Synthesis and optical properties of light-emitting π-conjugated polymers containing biphenyl and dithienosilole
LIAO, Liang; Çırpan, Ali; CHU, Qinghui; KARASZ, Frank E.; PANG, YI (Wiley, 2007-05-15)
Copolymers containing oligo(phenylene vinylene) (2.5), fluorene, and 4,4-dihexyldithienosilole (DTS) units were synthesized and characterized. The pi-conjugated monomers were joined with the palladium(0)-catalyzed Suzuki-Miyaura coupling reaction, thus forming either biphenyl- or phenyl-thiophene linkages. These polymers were photoluminescent, with the fluorescent quantum efficiency between 54 and 63% and with),lambda(max) for fluorescence at similar to 448 nm in tetrahydrofuran. The presence of 5% DTS in t...
