Fe/metal oxide nanocomposite particles were produced by means of hydrogen reduction assisted ultrasonic spray pyrolysis. Fe/Fe0.761Mg0.2390O and Fe/MgO nanocomposite particles were obtained at 600 and 800 degrees C, respectively. The thermodynamics of the formation reactions were investigated. Increasing the reaction temperature allowed efficient reduction of the precursor to metallic iron that induces the formation of pure MgO phase. The crystallite sizes of the Fe in the composite structures slightly increased, and also the crystallite sizes of the oxides decreased with elevating temperature. The nanocomposite particles exhibited spherical morphology and their particle sizes were slightly different. All of the samples showed ferromagnetic characteristics and the results indicate that the amount of metal and metal oxide phases most affected the saturation magnetizations of the composite particles which were lower than pure iron.


Synthesis and characterization of boron carbide films by plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition
Eroglu, OD; Sezgi, Naime Aslı; Ozbelge, HO; Durmazucar, HH (2003-03-01)
The plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition of boron carbide was investigated on quartz glass and alumina substrates from a gas mixture of BCl3, H-2, and CH4 in an inductively coupled plasma (ICP) medium produced by a radio frequency (RF) discharged onto the gases passing through a tubular reactor under atmospheric pressure. A thin solid boron carbide coating with a gray color was deposited on both substrates. The results of XRD revealed that the major solid phase formed in the coating material was beta-r...
Preparation and morphological characterization of a catalytic soot oxidation SiC foam filter
Caglar, Basar; Üner, Deniz (2007-01-01)
The coating characteristics of Pb-Co mixed metal oxide soot oxidation catalysts over a SiC foam filter were studied. The coating was done via incipient wetness impregnation of a slurry with Pb/Co weight ratio = 2. The coating was accomplished by 3 consecutive impregnation-drying-calcination cycles. After each cycle surface structure and composition were monitored by scanning electron microscope (SEM). SEM analysis revealed that the surface composition of Pb was high on the high porosity region and surface c...

A composite consisting of a polymer and calcium carbonate has been synthesized by allowing carbon dioxide to diffuse into a poly(ethylene oxide) film containing a Source of calcium ions. The X-ray pattern of the synthetic composite material shows that the least thermodynamically stable polymorph of calcium carbonate, vaterite is the mineral phase which is formed, rather than the most thermodynamically stable calcite phase. This effect has been seen in other reports of crystallization of inorganic phases whi...
Synthesis of conducting copolymers of thiophene capped poly(ethylene oxide) with pyrrole and thiophene
Yildiz, Huseyin Bekir; Kiralp, Senem; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yagci, Yusuf; Ito, Koichi (Elsevier BV, 2006-11-10)
Thiophene capped poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) was synthesized. Copolymerisations of PEO with pyrrole (Py) and thiophene (Th) were achieved in water-sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and acetonitrile (AN)-tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB) solvent electrolyte couples via constant potential electrolyses. Characterisations of the samples were performed by NMR, cyclic voltammetry (CV), FT-IR, scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Electrical conductivities were measured by the four-probe technique. PEO-co-PTh f...
Production of inorganic charge selective layers for mesoscopic perovskite solar cells
İçli, Kerem Çağatay; Özenbaş, Ahmet Macit; Akata Kurç, Burcu; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2017)
In this work, nanoparticles of lithium doped nickel oxide (NiO) were synthesized by common wet chemistry methods like precipitation, ultrasonic spray pyrolysis and flame spray pyrolysis methods. Synthesized nanoparticles were employed in fully metal oxide mesoscopic perovskite based solar cells. Lithium doping of NiO was achieved by ultrasonic spray pyrolysis method and flame spray pyrolysis methods. Flame spray pyrolysis method was used to synthesize yttrium doped titanium dioxide (TiO2) and magnesium oxid...
