At present, few layer graphene (G) and nitrogen doped few layer graphene (N doped-G) are firstly coated on Cu foil via chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method and G and N doped-G coated Cu foil is transferred to the indium tin oxide (ITO) substrate surface to obtain electrodes. Pd metal is electrodeposited onto the N doped-G/ITO electrode (Pd-N doped-G/ITO). Pd-N doped-G/ITO electrode are characterized with advanced surface characterization methods such as Raman spectroscopy and SEM-EDX. Characterization results reveal that G and N structures are succesfully obtained and the presence of Pd on Pd-N doped-G/ITO is confirmed with SEM-EDX mapping. The cyclic voltammetry (CV), chronoamperometry (CA), and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) are employed to examine glucose electrooxidation of G/ITO, N-doped G/ITO, and Pd-N-doped G/ITO electrodes. P-N-dopedG/ITO electrode exhibits the best glucose electrooxidation activity with 2 mA/cm(2) specific activity. Density functional theory (DFT) calculations are also carried out to better understand the interaction of the molecules on Pd modified G (Pd-G) and Pd modified N-doped G (Pd-3NG) surfaces.


A comparative ab initio study of the ferroelectric behaviour in KNO3 and CaCO3
Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri; Alpay, S. P. (IOP Publishing, 2007-12-12)
Potassium nitrate exhibits a reentrant phase transformation, where a metastable ferroelectric phase (gamma-KNO3) is formed upon cooling from high temperature. The layered structure of this ferroelectric phase is composed of alternating layers of potassium ions and nitrate groups; wherein, a central nitrogen atom is coordinated by three equilateral triangular oxygen atoms. The group layer is located less than midway between the cation layers, giving rise to a polar structure. From a structural perspective, t...

Effects of concentration changes in initiator species Na2SO3, (NH4)2S2O8 and CuSO4, and emulsifier, ammonium stearate, on poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) emulsion polymerization kinetics and on product particle size were experimentally investigated. It was observed that to obtain industrially significant rates and overall conversions, not only an optimum concentration ratio of Na2SO3/(NH4)2S2O8/CuSO 4 must be used, but also the concentrations of these species must be above certain limits. Increasing the concentr...
Comparison of the short and long-term degradation behaviors of as-cast pure Mg, AZ91 and WE43 alloys
Ocal, Ezgi Butev; ESEN, ZİYA; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri; Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (Elsevier BV, 2020-02-01)
The corrosion behaviors of pure magnesium, AZ91, and WE43 alloys have been evaluated by weight loss, hydrogen evolution rate, pH change measurements and potentiodynamic polarization as well as electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) methods. Main corrosion product formed on the surface of Mg/Mg-alloys after immersion of 24 h was Mg(OH)(2) on the other hand, at the end of the 20 days additional CaCO3 which was found to display a critical role in degradation characteristics of the samples, was found. Exa...
A baseball-bat-like CdTe/TiO2 nanorods-based heterojunction core-shell solar cell
Karaagac, H.; Parlak, Mehmet; Aygun, L. E.; Ghaffari, M.; Biyikli, N.; Okyay, A. K. (Elsevier BV, 2013-08-01)
Rutile TiO2 nanorods on fluorine-doped thin oxide glass substrates via the hydrothermal technique were synthesized and decorated with a sputtered CdTe layer to fabricate a core-shell type n-TiO2/p-CdTe solar cell. Absorbance spectrum verified the absorption contribution of both TiO2 and CdTe to the absorption process. The solar cell parameters, such as open circuit voltage, short circuit current density, fill factor and power conversion efficiency were found to be 0.34 V , 1.27 mA cm(-2), 28% and 0.12%, res...

To construct a sensing interface, in the present work, a conjugated polymer and core shell magnetic nano particle containing biosensor was constructed for the pesticide analysis. The monomer 4,7-di(furan-2-yl)benzo [c] [1,2,5]-thiadiazole (FBThF) and core shell magnetic nanoparticles were designed and synthesized for fabrication of the biosensing device. The magnetic nanoparticles were first treated with silica and then modified using carboxyl groups, which enabled binding of the biomolecules covalently. Fo...
