Humic acids (HAs) exist ubiquitously in environments and have a variety of functional groups, which allow them to complex with metal ions and pesticides. Furthermore, these interactions can not only alter the environmental behavior, but also influence the removal and transportation of those pollutants. The study of the interaction between Cu (II), VO (II) and Mn (II) with HAs provides environmental information on the oxidation states of paramagnetic metals and their mechanisms of binding to humic acids. Electron spin resonance (ESR) study demonstrates that VO (II) and Cu (II) ions are bound with oxygen ligands to HAs, while the Mn (II) complex occurs as [ Mn(H2O)(6)](2+). Additionally, Cu (II) ions are more strongly bound to soil HAs than Mn (II) ions. The effect of the presence of HA on photolysis of Tribenuron-methyl (TRB) and Imazapyr (IMAZ) herbicides in water was studied by irradiation of different mixtures of HA/herbicide (0.5:1 and 1:1 by volume). The kinetic rate constant k of TRB and IMAZ decreases from 0.0029 h(-1) to 0.0012 h(-1) and from 0.242 h(-1) to 0.014 h(-1) in 0.5/1 HA/herb and 1/1 HA/herb respectively. The obtained results clearly demonstrate that HA substances exhibit a screening effect on the photochemical degradation of the two herbicides. The protective effect of HAs on the TRB and IMAZ degradation could be explained with an inclusion and/or adsorption of the herbicide molecules in the humic matrix.


The effect of Dilution, Aeration, and Agitation on Fungal Cellulase and Xylanase Production by DDGS-based Fermentation Media in Stirred Tank Bioreactors
Iram, Attia; Çekmecelioğlu, Deniz; Demirci, Ali (2022-01-01)
Fungal cellulases and xylanases are commonly used for biological pretreatment of lignocellulosic biomass into simple sugars, which can then be converted into many value-added products including bioethanol. However, these enzymes are costly to produce and need a feedstock that should be more economical and high in fiber and other nutrients. Distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) is the byproduct of corn ethanol production and can be considered an appropriate feedstock. Among various problems in adaptat...
The effect of aromatic diboronic acid on characteristics of polybenzoxazine based on phenol and 4-aminomethylbenzoate
İPEK, HALİL; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2018-11-23)
In this study, a polybenzoxazine, (PPab) based on phenol and 4-aminomethyl benzoate and its composites containing various amounts of 1,4-benzene diboronic acid, (BDBA) were synthesized by stepwise curing. It has been determined that both thermal stability and char yield were increased as the amount of BDBA incorporated was increased. The improvements in thermal characteristics were associated with condensation reactions of B-OH of BDBA and not only with hydroxyl groups of polybenzoxazine but also ester grou...
The effect of dissolved species on hydrophobic aggregation of fluorite
Hicyilmaz, C; Bilgen, S; Ozbas, KE (1997-03-10)
The hydrophobic aggregation of fluorite in the presence of Fe3+, Al3+, F- Ca2+, Mg2+ and Ba2+ ions was studied. Electrokinetic potentials were measured to interpret the effect of these ions on aggregation.
The role of nanoparticle geometry in flame retardancy of polylactide nanocomposites containing aluminium phosphinate
Isitman, Nihat Ali; Doğan, Mehmet Onur; BAYRAMLI, ERDAL; Kaynak, Cevdet (2012-08-01)
Although there is considerable research effort in the development of halogen-free flame-retardant polylactide (PLA), a bio-based aliphatic polyester, the potential synergistic interactions of nanoparticles and conventional additives have scarcely been considered. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the influence of nanofiller geometry on fire retardancy of PLA nanocomposites containing aluminium diethylphosphinate (AlPi) flame retardant. For this purpose, a variety of nanofiller geometries were utili...
The synthesis and sodium-silver ion exchange of sodalites
Acar, Aybar Can; Culfaz, A (2003-05-01)
Aluminosilicate sodalites of three different types-chlorosodalite, basic sodalite, and oxalate sodalite-have been synthesized in their sodium forms using hydrothermal synthesis. The syntheses were investigated in terms of their relative rates of crystallization and final crystallinities using powder X-ray diffraction. These sodalites were subsequently loaded with silver by aqueous ion exchange. The exchange was studied primarily by monitoring the solution phase. Rate of exchange and equilibrium behavior hav...
