Inorganic antimony speciation using tungsten coil atom trap and hydride generation atomic absorption spectrometry
Akay, Pınar; Ataman, Osman Yavuz; Department of Chemistry (2010)
Antimony is a toxic element which is mostly found in two oxidation states (III and V) in environmental, biological and geological samples. Antimony may form various inorganic and organic compounds that exhibit differences in analytical behavior, toxicity and mobility; inorganic compounds of antimony are more toxic than organic forms and toxicity of Sb(III) has been shown to be 10 times higher than that of Sb(V). Therefore selective determination of Sb(III) and Sb(V) is required in environmental and biologic...

Carbon supported and surfactant stabilized metal nanoparticle catalysts for direct methanol fuel cells
Çelik, Çağlar; Gökağaç Arslan, Gülsün; Department of Chemistry (2005)
Carbon supported surfactant, such as 1-decanethiol and octadecanethiol, stabilized platinum and platinum/ruthenium species have been prepared recently. In this thesis, for the first time, 1-hexanethiol has been used as an organic stabilizer for the preparation of carbon supported platinum and platinum/ruthenium nanoparticle catalysts. These new catalysts were employed for methanol oxidation reaction, which were used for direct methanol fuel cells. Cyclic voltammetry, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and tra...
Surface free energy evaluation, plasma surface modification and biocompatibility studies of PMMA films
Özcan, Cantürk; Hasırcı, Nesrin; Department of Chemistry (2006)
PMMA is a widely used biomaterial especially in the fields of orthopedia, orthodontia and ophthalmology. When biocompatibility is considered, modification of the biomaterials’ surface may be needed to optimize interactions of the biomaterial with the biological environment. After the surface modifications one of the most important changes that occur is the change in the surface free energy (SFE). SFE is an important but an obscure property of the material and evaluation methods with different assumptions ex...
