The adsorption of chromium compounds from solutions by a composite of polyaniline/poly ethylene glycol (PANi/PEG) was investigated in this study. Experiments were conducted in batch mode under various operational conditions including agitation time, solution pH, PANi/PEG dose and initial concentration of chromium salts. Results showed that concentration of(More)
Various oxidation states of polyaniline, as film and powder, were used for reduction of highly toxic Cr(VI) to less toxic Cr(III) ion. The effects of various parameters such as synthesis method, physical and oxidation state of polyaniline, film thickness, solution pH and initial Cr(VI) concentration on the kinetics and efficiency of reduction process were(More)
PURPOSE AND METHOD ZnO/polyaniline nanocomposite in core-shell structure was prepared by the synthesis and adsorption of polyaniline chains on the structure of ZnO nanoparticles. Fourier transform infrared and ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction patterns, field emission scanning electron microscopy, and transmission electron(More)
A polystyrene coated quartz crystal nanobalance (QCN) sensor was developed for use in the determination of a number of linear short-chain aliphatic aldehyde and ketone vapors contained in air. The quartz crystal was modified by a thin-layer coating of a commercial grade general purpose polystyrene (GPPS) from Tabriz petrochemical company using a solution(More)
A novel slow released NPK fertilizer encapsulated by superabsorbent nanocomposite was prepared via in-situ free radical polymerization of sodium alginate, acrylic acid, acrylamide, and montmorillonite in the presence of fertilizer compounds. Evidence of grafting and component interactions, superabsorbent nanocomposite structure and morphology was obtained(More)
The sodium alginate-g-poly(acrylic acid-co-acrylamide)/rice husk ash (NaAlg-g-P(AA-co-AAm)/RHA) superabsorbent nanocomposite was synthesized by the free-radical graft copolymerization of alginate (NaAlg), acrylic acid (AA), acrylamide (AAm), and RHA in aqueous solution. FTIR spectra revealed that the monomers were grafted onto NaAlg chains, and the(More)
Polyaniline (PANI) nanofibers were electrochemically synthesized on gold electrode using ethanol as soft template by the cyclic voltammetry technique. The PANI nanofibers were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, UV-visible spectroscopy, and scanning electron microscopy. Linear sweep voltammetry was used to investigate electrocatalytic(More)
