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 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...
Synthesis of heterocyclic unit substituted carbazole derivatives and their electrochemical polymerization
Oğuztürk, Hatice Esra; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Tirkeş, Seha; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2013)
The study comprises synthesis of 3,6 and 2,7 substituted carbazole derivatives. Substitution was done by furan groups. The main purpose to conduct this study is to synthesize new low band gap donor-acceptor type monomers and analyze the differences stem from the substitution site difference and alkyl chain effect attached to the nitrogen atom. For this aim, four monomers; 3,6-Di(2-furyl)-9H-carbazole (3,6-F-Cz-F), 3,6-Di(2-furyl)-9-ethyl-carbazole (3,6-F-N-et-F), 2,7-Di(2-furyl)-9-H-carbazole (2,7-F-Cz-F) ,...
Synthesis, characterization and electrochromic properties of copolymer of terephthalic acid bis-(thiophen-3-yl-methyl) thioester with thiophene
Turkarslan, O; Erden, A; Sahin, E; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Informa UK Limited, 2006-01-01)
Terephthalic acid bis-(thiophen-3-yl-methyl thioester) (TTMT) was synthesized via the reaction of thiophen-3-yl methanethiol with terephthaloyl dichloride. Nuclear magnetic resonance ( H-1-NMR) spectroscopy and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy were utilized for the characterization of the monomer. Electrochemical copolymerization of TTMT with thiophene in acetonitrile/boron trifluoride diethyl etherate (AN/BFEE) (8:2, v/v) solvent mixture was realized by using tetrabutylammonium tetrafluorobor...
Synthesis and Characterization of Conducting Copolymers of Bisphenol A-Diglycidyl Ether with Thiophene Side-Groups and Pyrrole
Sahmetlioglu, Ertugrul; Varol, Ramazan; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yuruk, Huseyin (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
Copolymers of bisphenol A-diglycidyl ether with thiophene side-groups and pyrrole were synthesized by electrochemical polymerization. Bisphenol A-diglycidyl ether with thiophene side-groups (DGEBATh) was obtained from the reaction between bisphenol A-diglycidyl ether (DGEBA) and thiophene-3-acetic acid. The syntheses of copolymers of DGEBATh and pyrrole were achieved electrochemically using three different supporting electrolytes, p-toluene sulfonic acid (PTSA), sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and tetrabutylam...
Effects of Halloysite Nanotubes on the Performance of Plasticized Poly(lactic acid)-Based Composites
Erpek, Canan Esma Yeniova; ÖZKOÇ, GÜRALP; Yılmazer, Ülkü (Wiley, 2016-11-01)
The objective of this study is processing and characterization of Halloysite nanotube (HNT)/poly(lactic acid) (PLA) nanocomposites. As HNT filler, a domestic source was used (ESAN HNT). The results obtained from this HNT were compared with a well-known reference HNT (Nanoclay HNT). To achieve the desired physical properties and clay dispersion, composites were compounded via direct melt mixing in a laboratory twin-screw compounder. However, the constituents were observed to be incompatible without a compati...
