H-1 Nuclear Magnetic Resonance relaxometry studies have been performed for fifteen kinds of oil. The measurements of H-1 spin-lattice relaxation rates have been carried out in a frequency range encompassing three orders of magnitude: from about 10 kHz to 10 MHz, at room temperature. The data have been analysed in terms of a rigorous model rendering translation diffusion coefficients and providing some insight into rotational dynamics of triacylglycerols molecules. It has been observed that the diffusion is approximately by about 200 times slower compared to water diffusion in bulk and the diffusion coefficient varies in a narrow range. The diffusion coefficients have been combined with viscosity for different kinds of oil. A relationship between the molecular (the diffusion coefficient) and macroscopic (the viscosity coefficient) quantities have been established. It has turned out that most of oils follows the revealed relation. Discrepancies from the relationship, observed for some oils, have been discussed.


Synthesis of silver nanowires through polyol process
Coşkun, Şahin; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2012)
Nanotechnology enabled synthesis of various shapes and morphologies of conventional materials. Nanotubes, nanoparticles, quantum dots and nanowires are the new form of materials. Especially nanowires have gotten great attention due to their unique physical, chemical and optical properties. Superior properties of nanowires are based on their high surface area and two quantum confinement directions. Silver is one of the most conductive metals and it has the highest thermal conductivity. Due to excellent prope...

Nickel composites with co-deposited insoluble, solid lubricant particles such as MoS2 have been reported to reduce friction. It is known that hydrogen evolution reaction (HER), competes with nickel deposition. The influence of the electroplating parameters and their interaction effects on the peak current density for HER were studied by fractional factorial design. The parameters and their ranges were; MoS2 concentration (0-30 g/l), temperature (30-50 degrees C), pH (2-4) and surfactants (0-1 g/l). Electrod...
Growth and characterization of InSe single crystals
Deniz, Derya; Akınoğlu, Bülent Gültekin; Department of Physics (2004)
In this study, InSe single crystals were grown from the melt using conventional Bridgman-Stockbarger system. The grown crystals were implanted by N-ions to investigate the doping effect. the stoichiometry and the structural features were examined by scanning electron microscope and X-ray diffraction method, respectively. We have observed that the ingot was stoichiometric and the structure was hexagonal. Temperature dependent conductivity and Hall effect measurements were carried out to investigate the elect...
Density functional and dynamics study of the dissociative adsorption of hydrogen on Mg (0001) surface
Kecik, D.; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri (Elsevier BV, 2009-01-15)
A first principles study is performed to investigate the adsorption characteristics of hydrogen on magnesium surface. Substitutional and on-surface adsorption energies are calculated for Mg (0001) surface alloyed with the selected elements. To further analyze the hydrogen-magnesium interaction, first principles molecular dynamics method is used which simulates the behavior of H-2 at the surface. Also, charge density differences of substitutionally doped surface configurations were illustrated. Accordingly, ...
Diffusion and reaction in catalyst pellets with bidisperse pore size distribution
Doğu, Timur (1998-06-01)
Catalysts with bidisperse pore structures are extensively used in chemical industries. In such catalysts, diffusion and reaction in the microporous particles are preceded by diffusion in the macropores. The relative significance of macro-and micropore diffusion resistances on the observed reaction rates with Linear and nonlinear rate forms, heat effects, catalyst deactivation and selectivity problems in bidisperse catalysts are investigated in number of published works. In this article, a review of the mode...
