Fluorine was determined in the iliac crest bones of patients and in ribs collected from post-mortem investigations by particle-induced gamma-ray emission based on the (19)F(p,p ' gamma)(19)F reaction, using 2.0/2.5 MeV protons. The results indicate that for 68% of the human samples the F concentration is in the range 500-1999 mug g(-1). For comparison purposes fluorine was also determined in some animal bones; in some animal tissues lateral profiles of fluorine were measured.


Determination of ion dose and profiles in Ge-74 and Sn-120 implanted silicon layers by PIXE, NAA, RBS and SIMS
Belin, B; Bode, P; Turan, Raşit; Van Meerten, TG (2004-01-01)
Implanted Ge-74 and Sn-121 concentrations in silicon (Si) layers were investigated by particle induced X-ray emission (PIXE), instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA), Rutherford backscattering spectrometry (RBS) and secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS). Slight differences were observed in the results obtained. It was shown that PIXE and INAA are as powerful as the traditional RBS and SIMS spectroscopy for the investigation of thin layered Si.
Enantioselective chemoenzymatic synthesis of oseltamivir (tamiflu)(r) intermediates
Eşiyok, Hacı; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Department of Biotechnology (2008)
The objective of this presented study was to synthesize optically active compounds considered to be key intermediates in the synthesis of Oseltamivir (Tamiflu) by performing chemical and biotechnological methods. Thereof, the carboethoxy cyclohexenone skeleton first was synthesized utilizing easily available substances. The synthesis of alpha-hydroxy ketones in enantiomerically pure form offers a great importance in the synthesis of biologically active compounds. Toward this fact, the enantioselective synth...
Optical properties of (Ga2Se3)(0.)(75) - (Ga2S3)(0.)(25) single crystals by spectroscopic ellipsometry
Işık, Mehmet; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Gasanova, L. (Elsevier BV, 2019-05-01)
Structural and optical properties of 75 mol % Ga2Se3 - 25 mol % Ga2S3 system of single crystals were investigated by experimental techniques of x-ray diffraction (XRD), energy dispersive spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy and ellipsometry. XRD pattern indicated that the studied compound has crystalline nature with cubic structure. Vibrational modes in the crystal were revealed using Raman spectroscopy experiments in the 90-450 cm(-1) frequency range and nine modes were observed in the spectrum. Ellipsometry m...
Photogalvanic effect in aqueous Methylene blue nickel mesh systems: Conversion of light into electricity
Bayer, IS; Eroğlu, İnci; Turker, L (Wiley, 2001-03-10)
The photogalvanic effect in electrochemical cells, employing aqueous Methylene blue and Fe(II)/Fe(III) couple electrolyte and nickel-mesh electrodes, were experimentally investigated. Five different standard H-cell configurations were set-up by modifying the electrolyte. Long-term open-circuit Voltage measurements were conducted in order to test the stability of the cells. Light on-off reproducibility experiments were also carried out during lengthy cell operations. By comparing experimental quantum yield w...
Adsorption calorimetry in supported catalyst characterization: Adsorption structure sensitivity on Pt/-gamma-Al2O3
Üner, Deniz (Elsevier BV, 2005-08-15)
In this study, the structure sensitivity of hydrogen, oxygen and carbon monoxide adsorption was investigated by changing the metal particle size of Pt/Al2O3 catalysts. The 2% Pt/Al2O3 catalysts were prepared by incipient wetness method; the particle size of the catalysts was modified by calcining at different temperatures. The differential heats of adsorption of hydrogen, carbon monoxide and oxygen were measured using a SETARAM C80 Tian-Calvet calorimeter. Hydrogen chemisorption sites with low and intermedi...
