The runtime creation of pedagogically coherent learning content for an individual learner's learning preferences is a considerable challenge. By selecting and combining appropriate learning assets into a new learning object a learner's needs and preferences may be accounted for. There are a number key aspects that need to be addressed in order to perform(More)
A simple and sensitive method for the speciation, separation and preconcentration of Cr(VI) and Cr(III) in tap water was developed. Cr(VI) has been separated from Cr(III) and preconcentrated as its 1,5-diphenylcarbazone complex by using a column containing Amberlite XAD-16 resin and determined by FAAS. Total chromium has also been determined by FAAS after(More)
A method for the determination of Cu, Zn, Fe, Ni and Cd by flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry (FAAS) after preconcentrating on a column containing Escherichia coli immobilized on sepiolite has been developed. Optimum pH values, amount of adsorbent, elution solution and flow rate have been obtained for the elements studied. The effect of interfering(More)
This work assesses the potential of a new adsorptive material, Amberlyst 36, for the separation and preconcentration of trace manganese(II) from various media. It is based on the sorption of manganese(II) ions onto a column filled with Amberlyst 36 cation exchange resin, followed by the elution with 5mL of 3mol/L nitric acid and determination by flame(More)
Iron and nickel have been preconcentrated on Saccharomyces cerevisiae immobilized sepiolite and determined by flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry (FAAS). Preconcentration studies were conducted by the column method. Effect of pH, amount of adsorbent, elution solution, flow rate and interfering ions on the recovery of the analytes have been(More)
New nano hybrid material (ZrO(2)/B(2)O(3)) was synthesized and applied as a sorbent for the separation and/or preconcentration of Co(II), Cu(II) and Cd(II) in water and tea leaves prior to their determination by flame atomic absorption spectrometry. Synthesized nano material was characterized by scanning electron microscope, transmission electron microscope(More)
This article describes a learner modeling strategy that is employed by an adaptive learning system in order to provide each learner with a personalized e-Learning experience. Parameters related to the learners' prior knowledge, goal and learning style constitute the basis of the personalization and the adaptivity of the mentioned learning system. The(More)
A new solid phase extractor, nano-scale diboron trioxide/titanium dioxide composite material, was synthesized and used for separation and/or preconcentration of trace cadmium ion from various samples. The characterization of the synthesized material was performed by scanning electron microscope (SEM), transmission electron microscope (TEM) and X-ray(More)
A rapid, sensitive and accurate method for the separation, preconcentration and determination of Cr(III) and Cr(VI) in water samples is described. Chromium species can be separated by biosorption on Saccharomyces cerevisiae immobilized on sepiolite and determined by flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS). The optimum conditions for separation and(More)
Lead and nickel were preconcentrated as their ethylenediaminetetraacedic acid (EDTA) complexes from aqueous sample solutions using a column containing Ambersorb-572 and determined by flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS). pH values, amount of solid phase, elution solution and flow rate of sample solution have been optimized in order to obtain(More)
