Novel beta-fused BODIPY-Porphyrin compounds that contain free base porphyrin (TPP2BDP) and its Ni(II) complex (NiTPP2BDP) were synthesized to investigate intramolecular energy transfer mechanisms of beta-fused BODIPY-porphyrin dyads and effect of the unfilled d shell metal ion on energy transfer mechanism. Fluorescence spectra of compounds exhibited that BODIPY emission was diminished upon excitation of the BODIPY unit because of the energy transfer from BODIPY to porphyrin unit. Femtosecond pump-probe spectroscopy measurements revealed that energy transfer of investigated compounds are faster than previous studies in literature. Rapid energy transfer (about 500 fs) from BODIPY to porphyrin was observed for both compounds when BODIPY unit is excited due to direct linkage of BODIPY to porphyrin unit. Intersystem crossing mechanism was also observed for the compound that contains free base porphyrin (TPP2BDP), whereas d-d transition was observed for the compound that contains metalloporphyrin (NiTPP2BDP) due to unfilled d orbital of Ni(II)ion.

Urea and butyrylcholine chloride (BuChCl) biosensors were prepared by adsorption of urease and butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE) on heat-treated zeolite Beta crystals, which were incorporated into membranes deposited on ion-selective field-effect transistor (ISFET) surfaces. The responses, stabilities, and use for inhibition analysis of these biosensors were investigated. Different heat treatment procedures changed the amount of Bronsted acid sites without affecting the size, morphology, overall Si/Al ratio, ex...
Modeling of Magnetic Properties of Nanocrystalline La-doped Barium Hexaferrite
KÜÇÜK, İLKER; Sozeri, Huseyin; Ozkan, Husnu (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2011-05-01)
In this paper an artificial neural network (ANN) has been developed to compute the magnetization of the pure and La-doped barium ferrite powders synthesized in ammonium nitrate melt. The input parameters were: the Fe/Ba ratio, La content, sintering temperature, HCl washing and applied magnetic field. A total of 8284 input data set from currently measured 35 different samples with different Fe/Ba ratios, La contents and washed or not washed in HCl were available. These data were used in the training set for ...

Nitrogen-doped carbon nanostructures (CNx) are promising cathode materials as catalysts for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) in polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells. Incorporation of chlorine into CNx catalysts using a facile methodology can lead to a significant improvement in the ORR activity in acidic media, as confirmed by electrochemical half-cell measurements. The chlorine-containing CNx catalyst (CNx-Cl) is synthesized by soaking CNx powder in 0.3 M HCl. The analysis of near-edge X-ray ab...
Investigation of structural, electronic and anisotropic elastic properties of Ru-doped WB2 compound by increased valence electron concentration

First principles density functional theory (DFT) calculations have been used to investigate the structural, anisotropic elastic and electronic properties of ruthenium doped tungsten-diboride ternary compounds (W1-XRUxB2) for an increasing molar fraction of Ru atom from 0.1 to 0.9 by 0.1. Among the nine different compositions, W0.3Ru0.7B2 has been found as the most stable one due to the formation energy and band filling theory calculations. Moreover, the band structures and partial density of states (PDOS) h...

Bet-Moushoul, Elsie; Farhadi, Khalil; Mansourpanah, Yaghoub; Molaie, Rahim; Forough, Mehrdad; Nikbakht, Ali Mohammad (2016-07-01)
Ag/bauxite nanocomposites have been prepared using in situ reduction of aqueous AgNO3 solution in a bauxite matrix and investigated for the transesterification of sunflower oil with methanol in order to study their potential as heterogeneous catalysts. The prepared nanocopmosites were characterized by XRD, SEM, EDX, FT-IR, and TG- DTA. The Central Composite Design of the Response Surface Methodology was used to optimize the effect of reaction temperature, reaction time, catalyst loading and methanol to oil ...
