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.


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...
Effects of oxidative functionalization and aminosilanization of carbon nanotubes on the mechanical and thermal properties of polyamide 6 nanocomposites
Kaynak, Cevdet (SAGE Publications, 2013-11-13)
The focus of this study is to investigate the effects of oxidative functionalized carbon nanotubes (f-CNTs) and aminosilanized carbon nanotubes (s-CNTs) on the mechanical and thermal properties of polyamide 6 nanocomposites. Oxidation of nanotube surfaces was conducted with sulfuric acid/nitric acid mixture and then aminosilanization was carried out with -aminopropyltriethoxysilane. Nanocomposites were compounded by melt mixing technique and shaped by injection molding. Scanning electron microscopy images r...
Solid and liquid properties of Pd-Ni metal alloys using quantum Sutton-Chen many-body potential
Kart, SO; Uludogan, M; Cagin, T; Tomak, Mehmet (2003-09-12)
The performance of the quantum Sutton-Chen many body potential on the solid and liquid properties of Pd-Ni fcc transition metal alloys is investigated by molecular dynamics simulations. Elastic constants, phonon dispersion relations and diffusion coefficients are studied. The melting temperatures of Pd-Ni alloys are predicted. The transferability of the potential is also tested by simulating the liquid state. Comparison of the molecular dynamics results with available experimental data shows that the quantu...

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...
Structural Properties of Pristine and Defected ZnO Nanosheets Under Biaxial Strain: Molecular Dynamics Simulations
Kilic, Mehmet Emin; Erkoç, Şakir (2016-02-01)
Structural properties of defected zinc oxide nanosheets have been investigated by performing classical molecular dynamics simulations. An atomistic potential energy function has been used to represent the interactions among the atoms. Different types of defects (vacancy, exchange, Stone Wales like, line defect and ring-like) at the central region have been considered for the nanosheets. Strain has been applied to the generated ZnO nanostructures along both x- and y-axes, which has been realized at two diffe...
