The microstructural evolution, solidification behavior, phase relationships, microhardness and room temperature magnetic properties of the hypoeutectic Fe60Al40-nHfn (n = 1, 3, and 5 at.%) compositions are investigated in detail. The microstructure of the studied alloys is composed of Fe-Al based dendrites and eutectic mixture. The components of the eutectic are B2 Fe-Al based and HfFe6Al6 tau(1) phases. With increasing Hf fraction, the amounts of eutectic and tau(1) phases increase continuously which results in significant strengthening. Based on the differential scanning calorimetry results, the eutectic reaction temperature is measured as 1251 degrees C. Fe60Al40-nHfn alloys show weak room temperature ferromagnetism and their magnetization values also increase with increasing Hf content.

The microstructural evolution and room-temperature mechanical properties of Fe50Al50-nNbn alloys (n=1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 at%) were investigated after solidification and subsequent heat treatment. For all the compositions, the (Fe, Al)(2)Nb Laves phase formed because of the incomplete solid solubility of Nb in the Fe-Al-based phases and tended to develop an eutectic mixture with the Fe-Al-based phase. According to the results of EDS analysis and microstructural investigations, the Nb concentration of the eutect...
Design and development of high temperature nickel-based superalloys
Eriş, Rasim; Akdeniz, Mahmut Vedat; Mekhrabov, Amdulla O.; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2017)
Remarkable high temperature mechanical properties of nickel-based superalloys are related with the arrangement of ternary alloying elements in L12-type ordered γ'-Ni3Al intermetallics. Therefore, in this thesis, high temperature site occupancy preference and energetic-structural characteristics of atomic short range ordering of ternary alloying X elements (X = Co, Cr, Hf, Mo, Nb, Pt, Re, Ru, Ta and W, respectively) in Ni75Al21.875X3.125 alloy systems have been studied by combining the statistico-thermodynam...
Microstructural Investigation and Phase Relationships of Fe-Al-Hf Alloys

The effect of Hf addition on microstructures, phase relationships, microhardness, and magnetic properties of Fe50Al50-n Hf (n) alloys for n = 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 at. pct has been investigated. At all investigated compositions, the ternary intermetallic HfFe6Al6 tau (1) phase forms due to the limited solid solubility of Hf in FeAl phase and tends to develop a eutectic phase mixture with the Fe-Al-based phase. The Hf concentration of the eutectic composition is found to be 7 at. pct from the microstructural exa...
Spectroelectrochemical investigation of pentacarbonyl(pyrazine)metal(0) (metal = Cr, Mo, W) complexes of group 6 elements
Yaman, SO; Nalbant Esentürk, Emren; Kayran, C; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (2002-01-01)
The electrochemical behaviour of pentacarbony l(pyrazine) metal (0) complexes of the group 6 elements was studied by cyclic voltammetry in dichloromethane-(n-Bu)(4)NBF4 solvent-electrolyte couple at -20 degreesC vs. Ag/Ag+ or SCE reference electrode. Constant potential electrolyses of the complexes were carried out at their first oxidation peak potentials and monitored in situ by UV-Vis spectrometry. Electrolysis of W(CO)(5)pz produces [W(CO)(5)pz](+) and a similar electrochemical mechanism is expected both...
Design, synthesis, and characterization of potential self-sorting compounds through differential solvation
Tekin, Gizem; Akdağ, Akın; Gökmen, Ali; Department of Chemistry (2016)
DNA achieved its double helix form with the help of hydrophilic and hydrophobic interactions. When the sequence of the DNA is examined, it is seen that the DNA bases are the most hydrophobic part, and therefore; they are located at the innermost part of the double helix to avoid interaction with water. This location also enables them to form hydrogen bonds with the complementary DNA base rather than forming them with water. The next part in the sequence is the sugars which have higher solubility in water co...
