We report a case of bilateral ureteral obstruction most likely caused by polyarteritis nodosa. The diagnosis was based upon muscle biopsy which showed typical necrotizing vasculitis in medium size artery in conjunction with microaneurysms in renal angiography. Ureteral obstruction is a rare manifestation of polyarteritis nodosa. This condition is thought to(More)
Even the presence of very low concentrations of dyes (1mgL(-1)) in the effluent is highly visible and is considered aesthetically undesirable. It must be removed from wastewater completely. This study systematically evaluates the performance of adsorption (three kinds of powdered activated carbons), coagulation (AlCl3.6H2O) and membrane (submerged hollow(More)
− − − −Biofilter is one of the most important separation processes that can be employed to remove organic pollutants from air, water, and wastewater. Even though, it has been used over a century, it is still difficult to explain theoretically all the biological processes occurring in a biofilter. In this paper, the fundamental of biological processes(More)
In this study, the molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) are designed to improve their sensitivity and selectivity for specific aromatic hydrocarbons such as benzene, toluene, and xylene isomers. The MIPs based on methyl acrylate (MA) monomer are prepared using toluene and ethylene glycol dimetacrylate (EGDMA) as a template and a cross linking agent,(More)
In this work, a quartz crystal microbalance (QCM)-based adsorption sensor system with high sensitivity, selectivity, and reproducibility is designed and fabricated. The functional polymers such as polypyrrole, poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT), and polystyrene are coated on 8 MHz AT-cut quartz crystal surfaces as sensing materials for SO2 and NO2.(More)
To recycle the spent catalyst for the removal of VOCs, the benzene, toluene, and xylene (BTX) complete oxidations were studied over pretreated palladium based spent catalyst in a fixed bed flow reactor system at atmospheric pressure. Two different pretreatment methods with gas (air and hydrogen) and acid aqueous solution (HCl, H(2)SO(4), HNO(3), H(3)PO(4)(More)
Nitrogen adsorption/desorption isotherms and gravimetric methods were employed to examine the structural and adsorption properties of selected adsorbent. The equilibrium data of benzene were also obtained at three different temperatures (303.15, 313.15, and 323.15 K) with pressures up to 7 kPa. The results of nitrogen and benzene sorption isotherm revealed(More)
We investigated the heterogeneous adsorption and thermal desorption behaviors of acetone, n-hexane and trichloroethylene (TCE) on single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs). Adsorption isotherms for selected molecules on SWCNTs were measured using a quartz spring balance at temperatures ranging from 303.15 to 323.15 K. Thermal gravimetric desorption(More)
We examined the adsorption properties of double walled carbon nanotubes (DWCNTs) synthesized by using a catalytic chemical decomposition vapor method. To analyze the structural and energetical surface characteristics of the DWCNTs, nitrogen and benzene adsorption isotherms were measured. The Toth isotherm equation was used to correlate the adsorption data(More)
This study focuses on the adsorption properties of activated carbon nanofibers (CNFs) fabricated by electrospinning polyacrylonitrile solutions dissolved in dimethylformamide, followed by heat treatment at high activation temperatures (700, 750, 800 degrees C). The samples were characterized by BET, SEM, and XRD. In addition, the adsorption energy(More)
