The review is an update from the review presented at the OMS-2005 (Chung, 2005). It includes discussions on the technical issues that have been already identified in the literature for manganese nodule production system design and on initial stages of crust mining concepts. It appears no new additional issues have yet been identified and solved. Recent… (More)
By using various types of black carbon (BC), including chemically converted graphene (CCG), multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT), and granular activated carbon (GAC), BC-mediated reduction was investigated with 2,4-dinitrotoluene (DNT), a model nitroaromatic compound. We hypothesized that by providing sorption and electron transfer sites, BC can be used as… (More)
The development of high-performance shielding materials against electromagnetic pollution requires mobile charge carriers and magnetic dipoles. Herein, we meet the challenge by building a three-dimensional (3D) nanostructure consisting of chemically modified graphene/Fe3O4(GF) incorporated polyaniline. Intercalated GF was synthesized by the in situ… (More)
We introduce ammonia borane, a versatile reducing agent for graphene oxide (GO) reduction in both aqueous and organic solvents; it is nontoxic and more effective than hydrazine. More interestingly, ammonia borane reduction of GO tetrahydrofuran produced higher nitrogen- and boron-doped graphene that exhibited high supercapacitor performance.
Strip threadability is an ability to keep a strip flowing smoothly between inter-stands and run-out tables without severe longitudinal and lateral movements. The occurrence of a longitudinal movement is mainly related to looper–tension control performance, while a lateral movement is affected by steering control actions. Unstable threading may induce… (More)
Chemically converted graphene that was reduced with phenylhydrazine was highly dispersed in organic solvents, and its "paper" prepared by filtration of the reduced graphene possessed an electrical conductivity value as high as 20,950 S m(-1).
An efficient active material for supercapacitor electrodes is prepared by reacting potassium hydroxide (KOH) with graphene oxide followed by chemical reduction with hydrazine. The electrochemical performance of KOH treated graphene oxide reduced for 24 h (reduced chemically modified graphene oxide, RCMGO-24) exhibits a specific capacitance of 253 F g(-1) at… (More)
The importance of deep-ocean deposits for future cobalt resources and geological distribution characteristics have been well recognized. However, no sufficient geotechnical information of the cobalt-rich manganese deposit region is available to aid the design of seafloor mining systems. Based on the results of a recent large-diameter gravity coring, a model… (More)
The alkylamine functionalization of graphene oxide is well known as an efficient approach to prepare reduced functionalized graphene oxide (RFGO) that is highly dispersible in organic solvents. Herein, we systematically investigated the effects of long-chain alkylamine functionalization of graphene oxide on the organic solvent dispersibility and electrical… (More)
