H2S Gas Sensitivity of Doped SbP Monolayer:First Principle Study

The sensing behaviors of monolayer antimonide phosphorus (SbP) for hydrogen sulfide (H2S) are investigated by means of the density functional theory. In this paper, we calculated the best adsorption configuration, charge transfer, adsorption distance, band gap, electronic structure and recovery time of H2S on the SbP monolayer and mental-doped SbP (X-SbP). The calculated results indicate that Al atom replaces Sb atom of SbP (Al-Sb-SbP), adsorption capacity was greatly increased, but the covalent bond formed between the gas molecules and the substrate was not suitable for sensing materials. more

Comparative Study on Sodium Storage Properties of Two CNTs and a Novel CNT Design

Density functional theory (DFT) is employed to research three carbon tubes (CNTs), SWCNT, N-NiCNT, and N-CoCNT. The first two structures synthesized by other groups and N-NiCNT has better sodium storage properties as sodium-ion battery (SIB) anode than SWCNT, the last one is a designed structure. Here, the intrinsic cause why N-NiCNT has better performance than SWCNT has been located at molecular and atomic levels, meanwhile the potential of N-CoCNT as anode candidate is predicted. The researched properties that determine the electrochemical performances involve in structure stability, more

Electrocatalytic Oxidation Performance of PbO2 Composite Electrode Doped with MXenes

In this study, a two-dimensional transition metal carbon/nitride (MXenes) method was used to enhance the electrocatalytic oxidation behavior of PbO2 electrode. A novel composite electrode was prepared by doping the modified MXenes into PbO2 material. The electrochemical performance was tested by electrochemical workstation. The typical cationic red X-GRL was treated by electrochemical oxidation, and the electrochemical oxidation performance of the material electrode was investigated. The results demostrated that the dyes were removed by the oxygen evolution reaction at the electrodes doped more

Use of 1D [Pr(BTC)(H2O)6] MOF as a Filler for Fabrication of Matrimid® based MMMs

Selection of good filler-polymer pair results in improved gas separation performances. Present study deals with fabrication of Matrimid based hybrid or mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) by using three weight loadings (10, 20 and 30 wt. %) of 1D rod shaped nanoporous [Pr(BTC)(H2O)6] metal organic framework (MOF). The fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrophotometric analysis indicated the bonding of lanthanide metal ion with the linker and thus formation of the MOF, and further revealed that the structure of MOF remained intact after incorporation into the polymer matrix. Powder X-ray (PXRD) more

The Influence of pH of Float on the Dyeability of Polyester Fabric

Disperse dyes are essentially non – ionic, exhibit poor solubility in water, and they can be used in the form of water dispersion. Polyester fibres are resistant to dilute aqueous acids and alkaline solutions and pH value does not provide a crucial impact on the dyeing mechanism; however, many disperse dyes undergo degradation if the pH is uncontrolled during aqueous dyeing. In order to minimize the possibility of dye hydrolysis, the dyeing is carried out in a slightly acidic medium, and pH is usually adjusted with acetic acid. In this work, the quantity of disperse dyes (Sinten Gelb P-5GL more

Synthesis, Characterization and Application of Karak Bentonite Clay-Graft-Poly (Acrylamide/Co- Acrylic Acid) Superabsorbent Composite and its Adsorption Study for Selected Heavy Metals

A novel superabsorbent composite (SAC) based on bentonite, acrylamide and acrylic acid was synthesized. The effects of bentonite quantity, initiator content on the grafting degree and on the water absorbency for the samples were studied. Synthesis mechanism, morphology and thermal properties of the SAC were characterized. FTIR results confirmed the presence of acrylamide/ acrylic acid onto bentonite backbone while TGA showed that introduction of 70 % bentonite to polymer increases thermal stability. The SAC was also tested in the removal of heavy metal in aqueous solution where kinetics more

Determination of Diclofenac Sodium in Pharmaceutical Preparations by Computational Image Scanning Densitometry

Diclofenac sodium is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug which cures by reducing substances in the body that cause pain and inflammation. There is always a risk of heart attack and stroke in case of taking excess of the drug. In present study a simple, fast and cost-effective method is devised for the assay of diclofenac sodium in locally available pharmaceutical preparations. The method is based on the reaction of the drug with 2, 4-DNPH (2, 4-Dinitro phenyl hydrazine). Micro-quantities of the drug gave green coloured spots when mixed with 2,4-DNPH on a pre-coated TLC plate, in the more

Organic-Exchanged Silicotungstic Acid Compounds as Efficient and Environmental-Friendly Catalysts for Synthesis of Glycerol Monolaurate

A series of organic-exchanged silicotungstic acid catalysts were synthesized by changing the variety and amount of organic compounds. The structure, thermal stability and acidic properties of the catalysts were characterized by FT-IR, XRD, TGA and 31P-MAS NMR. The catalytic performances of the catalysts were investigated on the selective esterification of lauric acid with glycerol to glycerol monolaurate. Among the various catalysts, [QuH]1H3SiW12O40 with molar ratio of quinoline to silicotungstic acid of 1:1 showed excellent activity and reusability due to strong Brønsted acidity and “ more

Synthesis, Characterization, Antimicrobial and Anticarcinogenic Activity of Quinazoline Derivatives

The reaction of β-dicarbonyl compounds as ethyl acetoacetate with hydrazines is a well-established route for the creation of pyrazole derivatives. In this research, 4-hydrazinoquinazoline (4) reacted with ethyl acetoacetate in boiling ethanol it gives ethyl 3-oxobutanoate quinazolin-4-yl-hydrazone (5). Cyclization of the compound (5) in the presence of glacial acetic acid is passed to form 4-(5-hydroxy-3-methyl-1H-pyrazol-1-yl)quinazoline(6). Furthermore, the reaction of phenylisothiocyanate compounds with hydrazines is a well-established way for the synthesis of tetrazinoquinazoline (8). The more
