Microstructure and rheology of Janus particle suspensions
The aggregate sizes and morphologies formed with colloidal particles have important consequences on the rheological behavior of colloidal suspensions. Self- and directed-assembly are the most used phenomena to produce ...
Conversion of carbohydrates to alpha-hydroxy-acids over Lewis acidic HF-, SN- and ZR- beta zeolite catalysts using gamma-valerolactone and water as solvent
The incorporation of Sn, Hf and Zr in the structure of Beta zeolite using a post-synthetic method gives catalysts with Lewis acidity that are effective for the conversion of C6 sugars to alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), such ...
An evaluation of optical band gap in photovoltaic polymers for solar energy capture
Organic solar cells are a very promising technology for use in the renewable energy field. Band gap measurements on liquid phase for different polymers were studied, and the possible radiation harvest and reasoning for ...
Brackish water desalination with a novel polymer nanocomposite membrane
The rapid growth of the global population, the industrialization and environmental problems caused by global warming have made it necessary to implement advanced water purification techniques capable of fulfilling the ...
