Corrosion inhibitors are added in low concentrations to corrosive solutions for reducing the corrosion rate of a metallic material. Their mechanism of action is typically the blocking of free metal surface by adsorption, thus slowing down dissolution. This work uses electrochemical impedance spectroscopy to show the cyclic oligosaccharide beta-cyclodextrin (beta-CD) to inhibit corrosion of zinc in 0.1M chloride with an inhibition efficiency of up to 85%. Only a monomolecular adsorption layer of beta-CD is present on the surface of the oxide covered metal, with Raman spectra of the interface proving the adsorption of the intact beta-CD. Angular dependent X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (ADXPS) and ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS) were used to extract a band-like diagram of the beta-CD/ZnO interface, showing a large energy level shift at the interface, closely resembling the energy level alignment in an n-p junction. The energy level shift is too large to permit further electron transfer through the layer, inhibiting corrosion. Adsorption hence changes the defect density in the protecting ZnO layer. This mechanism of corrosion inhibition shows that affecting the defect chemistry of passivating films by molecular inhibitors maybe a viable strategy to control corrosion of metals.


NaCl-Promoted CuO-RuO2/SiO2 Catalysts for Propylene Epoxidation with O-2 at Atmospheric Pressures: A Combinatorial Micro-reactor Study

A combinatorial approach is used to investigate several alkali metals promoted Cu-Ru binary oxide catalysts with improved catalytic performance in the propylene partial oxidation. 2 %Cu/5 %Ru/c-SiO2 catalyst had the best yield with high propylene conversion and propylene oxide (PO) selectivity. Among the promoters screening in the study, NaCl promotion significantly increased the PO selectivity accompanied by some attenuation in the total propylene conversion. It was proposed that binary oxide catalysts rev...
Palladium(0) nanoparticles supported on polydopamine coated Fe3O4 as magnetically isolable, highly active and reusable catalysts for hydrolytic dehydrogenation of ammonia borane
Manna, Joydev; Akbayrak, Serdar; Özkar, Saim (2016-01-01)
Magnetic ferrite nanopowders were coated with polydopamine which is inert against the hydrolysis of ammonia borane. Coating of ferrite powders was achieved by pH-induced self-polymerization of dopamine hydrochloride at room temperature. Palladium(0) nanoparticles supported on polydopamine coated ferrite (Pd-0/PDA-Fe3O4) were prepared by impregnation of palladium(II) ions on the surface of PDA-Fe3O4 followed by their reduction with sodium borohydride in aqueous solution at room temperature. Magnetically isol...
Biodegradation of aldicarb in a packed-bed reactor by immobilized Methylosinus
Kok, FN; Arica, MY; Halicigil, C; Alaeddinoglu, G; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (1999-04-01)
Carboxymethylcellulose microspheres cross-linked via aluminum ions were used as a support material for immobilization of Methylosinus isolated from soil contaminated with aldicarb. The degradation capacity of immobilized bacteria, different parameters such as substrate concentration (50-800 ppm), flow rate (10-60 ml h(-1)), and continuous contact with reaction medium (flow rate, 20 mi h(-1) and concentration, 100 ppm) that affect aldicarb degradation were investigated in a packed-bed reactor. Increases in t...
Celulose Membranes for Organic Solvent Nanofiltration
Çulfaz Emecen, Pınar Zeynep; Elif Nur, Durmaz (2015-11-19)
Cellulose membranes were fabricated by phase inversion from solutions of cellulose in 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate ([EMIM]OAc) as solvent and acetone as volatile cosolvent. The rejection of Bromothymol Blue (624 Da) in ethanol increased and the permeance decreased by increasing the cellulose concentration in the solution prior to coagulation, either by having more cellulose in the starting solution or by evaporating the volatile cosolvent. Drying the membranes after coagulation further increased the ...
Synthesis and Characterization of Aluminum Containing Silica Aerogel Catalysts for Degradation of PLA
Sivri, Seda; Dilek Hacıhabiboğlu, Çerağ; Sezgi, Naime Aslı (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2019-05-01)
Aluminum loaded silica aerogel based catalysts were synthesized by impregnation of aluminum into silica aerogel produced using sol-gel method in different aluminum loadings (2.5-15 wt%) to investigate their performances in degradation of polylactic acid (PLA).
