This study investigates the electrochemical behavior of pyrite in collectorless and DTPI (sodium disobuthyldithiophosphinate) induced conditions to identify the nature of interactions between pyrite and DTPI with respect to pulp pH and pulp potential (Eh). Electrochemical investigation from acidic to alkaline (pH = 4.67- 11.0) conditions were performed using cyclic voltammetry technique in cathodic to anodic potential range (-505 to +595 mV SHE). DRIFT spectroscopy were also done after polarization at varying potentials and pH, to identify pyrite surface and to express adsorption mode of DTPI. Pyrite surface was seen to display characteristic electrochemical behavior according to pulp pH. Hydrophobic nature of pyrite in acidic condition turned into hydrophillic form with increase in solution pH with regard to the changes in pulp potential. In DTPI induced condition, intensity of redox reactions, related to S 0 formation, decreased at acidic pH due to surface passivation with DTPI adsorption. No apparent differences occurred in the pyrite volttamograms after DTPI addition in other pHs. Adsorbance of DTPI on pyrite relied mainly on chemical means, irrespective of pulp potential. DRIFT studies revealed that DTPI adsorbed in dimer form on pyrite and acidic pulp favored its adsorption. DRIFT patterns also confirmed that interaction among pyrite and DTPI relied mainly on chemical means.


Electrochemical investigation of copper-DTPI interactions
Hicyilmaz, C; Altun, Naci Emre (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-05-01)
The electrochemical behavior of copper in the absence and presence of a dithiophosphinate type collector, sodium diisobuthyldithiophosphinate (NaDTPI), was determined to investigate the interactions between a copper surface and NaDTPI as a function of pulp potential (Eh) and pH. The electrochemical studies were performed by Cyclic Voltammetry (CV) in the -355 to +1550 mV (SHE) potential range and at different pHs from slightly acidic to strongly alkaline conditions. The electrochemical studies were carried ...
Pyrite-DTPI interaction as a function of pulp potential and pH
Hicyilmaz, C; Altun, Naci Emre; Ekmekci, Z; Gokagac, G (Elsevier BV, 2004-02-10)
This study aims to investigate the nature of interactions between pyrite and sodium diisobutyldithiophosphinate (DTPI), a dithiophospinate type collector, with respect to the pulp potential (Eh), and pH. Cyclic voltammetry (CV) technique was employed at certain potential ranges and slightly acidic, neutral and alkaline solutions in order to identify the electrochemical behaviour of pyrite and DTPI individually, as well as the possible mutual reactions occurring among pyrite surface and DTPI. In addition, th...
Electrochemical behaviour and electrochemical polymerization of fluoro-substituted anilines
Cihaner, A; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (2002-08-01)
The electrochemical behaviour of three fluoro-substituted aniline monomers, 2-fluoroaniline (2FAN), 3-fluoroaniline (3FAN) and 4-fluoroaniline (4FAN), was investigated in aqueous acidic and organic media by means of cyclic voltammetry (CV) studies. Constant potential electrolysis (CPE) of the monomers in acetonitrile-water mixture (1: 1 by volume) using NaClO4 as supporting electrolyte yielded soluble polymers. The mechanism of electrochemical polymerization was investigated using in situ electron spin reso...
Electrochemical copolymerization of 2-substituted thiophene derivative linked by polyether bridge with thiophene
Cihaner, A; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (2005-09-01)
New conducting copolymers have been synthesized via electrochemical oxidation of thiophene (Th) in the presence of monomer bis(2-thienyl)ethyl (1). Cyclic voltammetry (CV) studies showed that the presence of monomer I in the electrolytic solution greatly changes the CV behaviour of the formation of the polythiophene films. It is found that the increasing ratio of I was found to decrease electroactivity of copoly(I-Th). Electrochemical synthesis of copolymer films was achieved via constant potential electrol...
Electrochemical copolymerization of thiophene containing pseudo-polyether cages with pyrrole
Cihaner, Atilla; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (2006-01-01)
Conducting copolymers were synthesized via the electrochemical oxidation of pyrrole (Py) in the presence of the monomer 1,12-bis(2-thienyl)-2,5,8,11-tetraoxadodecane (1). The presence of monomer I in the electrolytic solution greatly changed the CV behavior of Py during its potensiodynamic polymerization. The electroactivity of poly(I-co-Py) increased with the increasing amount of I in the comonomer mixture. Copolymer films were prepared via constant potential electrolysis in an electrolytic solution contai...
