Enhancing biochar adsorption capabilities and recollection ability is essential for efficient biochar application. In this study, Nitrogen-doped magnetic biochar was prepared via one-step heating of FeCl3-laden agar biomass under NH3 environment. Synthesized magnetic biochar ABF-N-800 shows a maximum Cr (VI) adsorption capacity up to 142.86 mg g(-1), outperforming that of magnetic biochar and many other previously reported materials. Moreover, a significant increase of magnetic properties obtained by NH3 ambiance pyrolysis enables easy separation of the adsorbent from the solution after treated with Cr (VI). The physiochemical properties of composites characterized by SEM, EDS, XRD, XPS, VSM, BET surface and pore, Elemental content, and FTIR analysis. The NH3 ambiance pyrolysis confirmed as an efficient process for surface modification, increased magnetic properties and activated N-functional groups. The Langmuir isotherm model and pseudo-second-order model are applicable for describing adsorption behavior. The thermodynamic study shows that the adsorption was spontaneous and endothermic. The present results warrant the application of simultaneous functionalized and magnetized biochar for Cr (VI) contaminated wastewater treatment. (C) 2018 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.


Presentation of a multi-tone model and its application to feedforward circuit analysis
Coskun, Hakan; Mutlu, Ahmet; Demir, Şimşek (2004-12-01)
Analytical tools that characterize nonlinear systems are essential and need to be developed for initial rapid optimizations and understanding of the system performance. Modeling of the input signal is a crucial part of this task. In this work, we present a multi-tone representation for an arbitrary, stochastically not well-defined signal and its application to a feedforward circuit which involve two nonlinear amplifiers, couplers, phase and delay units. Particularly, amplitude and phase aspects of the model...
Parallel solution of soil-structure interaction problems on pc clusters
Bahçecioğlu, Tunç; Çetin, Kemal Önder; Department of Civil Engineering (2011)
Numerical assessment of soil structure interaction problems require heavy computational efforts because of the dynamic and iterative (nonlinear) nature of the problems. Furthermore, modeling soil-structure interaction may require finer meshes in order to get reliable results. Latest computing technologies must be utilized to achieve results in reasonable run times. This study focuses on development and implantation of a parallel dynamic finite element analysis method for numerical solution of soil-structure i...
Optimal Inverse Kinematic Solutions for Redundant Manipulators by Using Analytical Methods to Minimize Position and Velocity Measures
Özgören, Mustafa Kemal (2013-08-01)
Two methods are presented to obtain optimal inverse kinematic solutions for redundant manipulators, according to two different performance criteria stipulated in the position and velocity levels. Both methods are analytical throughout except their final stages, which involve the numerical solution of a simplified minimization problem in a position-level case and the numerical integration of a set of differential equations derived optimally in a velocity-level case. Owing to the analytical nature of the meth...
Input variable selection for hydrological predictions in ungauged catchments: with or without clustering
Doğulu, Nilay; Batmaz, İnci; Kentel Erdoğan, Elçin (null; 2018-04-08)
A key step in data-driven environmental modelling, including for hydrological purposes, is input variable selection (IVS) to ensure that the least number of variables with minimum redundancy are used to characterize the inherent relationship between inputs and outputs. Hydrological predictions in ungauged catchments is one such area where the information on influential predictors of runoff signatures guides in understanding dominant controls of meaningful information transfer from gauged to ungauged locatio...
Covalently immobilized tris(triazolyl) methanol-Cu(I) complexes: highly active and recyclable catalysts for CuAAC reactions
ÖZKAL, Erhan; Özçubukçu, Salih; JİMENO, Ciril; Pericas, Miquel A. (2012-01-01)
Tris(1-benzyl-1H-1,2,3-triazol-4-yl)methanol (3), a highly efficient ligand for CuAAC reactions, has been immobilized onto Merrifield resins through different strategies. The S(N)2-supported Cu complex (8) is stable in water and under air; it is active at low catalyst loadings (1 mol%) and at low concentration (down to 0.125 M) in both aqueous and purely organic media. Resin 8 can be repeatedly reused in 1 : 1 MeOH-water for short reaction times (4 h) with the only precaution of Cu(I) reloading every five c...
