Production and characterization of activated carbon from a bituminous coal by chemical activation
D Cuhadaroglu, OA Uygun
African Journal of Biotechnology , 2008,
Abstract: In this study, the use of a bituminous coal for the production of activated carbons with chemical activation was investigated. The effects of process variables such as chemical reagents, activation temperature, impregnation ratio and carbonization temperature were investigated to optimize these parameters. The resultant activated carbons were characterized in terms of iodine number, BET surface area, and total and micropore volumes. Acidic surface groups were established by Fourier Transmittance Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) technique.

Caglar Cuhadaroglu, Mustafa Erelel, Levent Tabak, Zeki Kilicaslan
BMC Infectious Diseases , 2002, DOI: 10.1186/1471-2334-2-14
Abstract: The mean workforce of the hospital was 3359 + 33.2 between 1991 and 2000. There were 31 cases (15 male) meeting the diagnostic criteria for TB, comprising eight doctors, one nurse and 22 other health professionals. Mean incidence of TB was 96 per 100,000 for all HCWs (relative risk: 2.71), 79 per 100,000 for doctors (relative risk: 2.2), 14 per 100,000 for nurses and 121 per 100,000 (relative risk: 3.4) for other professionals. The mean incidence of TB in Turkey between 1991 and 2000 was 35.4 per 100,000. Incidence of TB was similar in the Departments of Chest Diseases and Clinical Medicine but there were no TB cases in the Basic Science and Managerial Departments.HCWs in Turkey who work in clinics have an increased risk for TB. Post-graduate education and prevention programs reduce the risk of TB. Control programs to prevent nosocomial transmission of TB should be established in hospitals to reduce risk for HCWs.Tuberculosis (TB) is an established occupational disease of health care workers (HCWs) and those infected may transmit the disease to susceptible individuals. Previously, it has been reported that HCWs are at increased risk of TB [1-6]. There is a large number of studies from North America about the risk of TB among HCWs and TB control programs have been established to protect HCWs in these countries. Prevalence of TB among HCWs in high-prevalence countries has been poorly documented [4-6] and TB control programs are not widespread. Turkey is one such country and had a TB incidence of 26.3 per 100,000 in 2000 [7]. Also, in Turkey there is no central control program for the prevention of TB in HCWs. Determining the risk of TB among HCWs is important to enable authorites to take preventative measures in health care facilities and protect HCWs.In the present study, we aimed to determine whether HCWs in a Turkish teaching hospital have a higher risk of TB than the normal population and if the incidence of TB varies between hospital departments.This retrospectiv
Electrical Conductivity of Collapsed Multilayer Graphene Tubes  [PDF]
D. Mendoza
World Journal of Nano Science and Engineering (WJNSE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/wjnse.2012.22009
Abstract: Synthesis of multilayer graphene on copper wires by a chemical vapor deposition method is reported. After copper etching, the multilayer tube collapses forming stripes of graphitic films, their electrical conductance as a function of temperature indicate a semiconductor-like behavior. Using the multilayer graphene stripes, a cross junction is built and owing to its electrical behavior we propose that a tunneling process exists in the device.
Porous Carbon Grown by Chemical Vapor Deposition on Copper Substrates  [PDF]
D. Mendoza
Journal of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering (MSCE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/msce.2015.38003
Abstract: Amorphous porous carbon was synthesized by chemical vapor deposition on copper substrates. The average size of the pores is around 1.2 microns with some small pores decorating the big ones. Lamellar samples of this carbonaceous material can be separated from the copper support and may be useful as electrode due to its low electrical resistivity of the order of 0.4 Ωcm.
Application of Enzyme Extracted from Aloe vera Plant in Chemical Pretreatment of Cotton Knitted Textile to Reduce Pollution Load  [PDF]
D. Jothi
World Journal of Engineering and Technology (WJET) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/wjet.2015.33B007
Abstract:

Nowadays, highly alkaline chemicals like caustic soda, soda ash, silicate, acetic acid and soaping agents are used for scouring to remove the non-cellulosic impurities from the cotton. Using 30 - 40 gm/Kg on weight of the fabric results in destruction of cotton structure. Intensive rinsing and more acid is needed for reutilization of cotton, which enlarges the volume of effluent. Furthermore, these hazards chemicals result in increase in COD, BOD and TDS in waste water. These chemicals also attack the cellulose leading to heavy strength loss and weight loss in the fabric. The net result is low quality control and polluted environment with high usage of energy, time, chemical and water. Aloe vera presents the finest commercial opportunity in various industrial sectors among the various plants. Also, most of the countries are gifted with the unique geographical features that are essential for cultivation of Aloe vera. Yet, none of the country has realized and reaped the full potential of such plants in various industrial applications. The reason is simple: lack of the requisite expertise in extraction of various enzymes present in aloe plant. Fortunately, the technology is now accessible to make use of enzyme in textile application. In this research an attempt has been made to make use of lipase enzyme extracted from aloe plant in textile chemical pre- treatment process. In the present research work, an attempt was made to develop bio scouring of 100% cotton knitted fabric with lipase enzyme extracted from Aloe deberena plant at various concentration (1%, 2% and 3%) at various temperature (40?C, 60?C and 70?C) for a period of 30 minutes, 60 minutes and 90 minutes. The properties of bio scoured fabrics are compared with these of conventional scoured one. Encouraging results in terms of dye uptake, dye levelness, wash fastness, light fastness and rubbing fastness are obtained in case of bio scouring fabric dyed with dark reactive colors. Further, it reduces volume of effluent as well as COD, TDS and pH. It saves a substantial thermal energy 50% and electrical energy 40%. Bio scouring waste water has 40% - 50% less COD and 60% less TDS as compared to conventional scouring waste water.

Hyporheic Zone Hydrochemistry of the Mine-Polluted River  [PDF]
D. Ciszewski
Journal of Geoscience and Environment Protection (GEP) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/gep.2015.310008
Abstract:

Intensity of stream waters mixing with groundwaters and lateral extent of these processes in the hyporheic zone were investigated in a near-bank sandbar and an adjacent floodplain through the comparison of groundwaters and stream water chemistry of the Bia?a Przemsza River in southern Poland. The stream waters were polluted by the discharge of mine waters from “Boles?aw” lead and zinc mine. The investigated waters were several times more mineralized than the natural spring waters of the river valley. The concentration of: potassium, sodium, and the pH, as well as cadmium, lead, and zinc decreased in the hyporheic zone towards the stream bank, whereas conductance, calcium, magnesium, sulphates, as well as silica contents were the highest on the floodplain, diminishing towards the stream. The changes observed in the chemical composition of groundwaters were apparent in mixing stream waters below the depth of 2 m with shallow groundwaters draining the valley slope. Hyporheic mixing also takes place in the 10-meter-wide, marginal zone of the sandbar, whereas in the 5-meter-wide stream-side zone of the sandbar groundwaters represent weakly transformed stream water.

Fractional Topological Insulators—A Bosonization Approach  [PDF]
D. Schmeltzer
Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2016.71012
Abstract: A metallic disk with strong spin orbit interaction is investigated. The finite disk geometry introduces a confining potential. Due to the strong spin-orbit interaction and confining potential the metal disk is described by an effective one-dimensional model with a harmonic potential. The harmonic potential gives rise to classical turning points. As a result, open boundary conditions must be used. We bosonize the model and obtain chiral Bosons for each spin on the edge of the disk. When the filling fraction is reduced to \"\" the electron-electron interactions are studied by using the Jordan Wigner phase for composite fermions which give rise to a Luttinger liquid. When the metallic disk is in the proximity with a superconductor, a Fractional Topological Insulator is obtained. An experimental realization is proposed. We show that by tunning the chemical potential we control the classical turning points for which a Fractional Topological Insulator is realized.
The Dissipative Flow in Topological Superconductors and Solid 4He  [PDF]
D. Schmeltzer
Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2017.89095
Abstract: Using two piezoelectric transducers, one measures the stress tensor response from the strain field generated by the second transducer. The ratio between the stress response and strain velocity determines the dissipative response. In the first part, we show that the dissipative stress response can be used for studying excitations in a topological superconductor. We investigate a topological superconductor for the case when an Abrikosov vortex lattice is formed. In this case, the Majorana fermions are dispersive, a fact that is used to compute the dissipative stress response. In the second part, we analyse the dissipative superfluid flow through solid 4He discoused recently. We identify low energy, an excitation which plays the role of the Majorana mode which is free to move in a direction perpendicular to the two dimensional plane spaces of the dislocations.
An Analysis of Modified Emden-Type Equation ẍ + αxẋ + βx3 = 0: Exact Explicit Analytical Solution, Lagrangian, Hamiltonian for Arbitrary Values of α and β  [PDF]
D. Biswas
Natural Science (NS) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ns.2019.111002
Abstract: The modified Emden-type is being investigated by mathematicians as well as physicists for about a century. However, there exist no exact explicit solution of this equation, ẍ + αxẋ + βx3 = 0 for arbitrary values of α and β. In this work, the exact analytical explicit solution of modified Emden-type (MEE) equation is derived for arbitrary values of α and β. The Lagrangian and Hamiltonian of MEE are also worked out. The solution is also utilized to find exact explicit analytical solution of Force-free Duffing oscillator-type equation. And exact explicit analytical solution of two-dimensional Lotka-Volterra System is also worked out.
Utilizing Dimensional Analysis with Observed Data to Determine the Significance of Hydrodynamic Solutions in Coastal Hydrology  [PDF]
Eric D. Swain, Jeremy D. Decker, Joseph D. Hughes
Computational Water, Energy, and Environmental Engineering (CWEEE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/cweee.2014.32008
Abstract:

In this paper, the authors present an analysis of the magnitude of the temporal and spatial acceleration (inertial) terms in the surface-water flow equations and determine the conditions under which these inertial terms have sufficient magnitude to be required in the computations. Data from two South Florida field sites are examined and the relative magnitudes of temporal acceleration, spatial acceleration, and the gravity and friction terms are compared. Parameters are derived by using dimensionless numbers and applied to quantify the significance of the hydrodynamic effects. The time series of the ratio of the inertial and gravity terms from field sites are presented and compared with both a simplified indicator parameter and a more complex parameter called the Hydrodynamic Significance Number (HSN). Two test-case models were developed by using the SWIFT2D hydrodynamic simulator to examine flow behavior with and without the inertial terms and compute the HSN. The first model represented one of the previously-mentioned field sites during gate operations of a structure-managed coastal canal. The second model was a synthetic test case illustrating the drainage of water down a sloped surface from an initial stage while under constant flow. The analyses indicate that the times of substantial hydrodynamic effects are sporadic but significant. The simplified indicator parameter correlates much better with the hydrodynamic effect magnitude for a constant width channel such as Miami Canal than at the non-uniform North River. Higher HSN values indicate flow situations where the inertial terms are large and need to be taken into account.
