Graphene has attracted multidisciplinary study because of its unique physicochemical properties. Herein, few-layered graphene oxide nanosheets were synthesized from graphite using the modified Hummers method, and were used as sorbents for the removal of Cd(II) and Co(II) ions from large volumes of aqueous solutions. The effects of pH, ionic strength, and(More)
Oxidized multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were employed as sorbent to study the sorption characteristic of Pb(II) from aqueous solution as a function of contact time, pH, ionic strength, foreign ions, and oxidized MWCNTs' contents under ambient conditions using batch technique. The results indicate that sorption of Pb(II) on oxidized MWCNTs is strongly(More)
This paper focuses on finding a dual quaternion solution to attitude and position control for multiple rigid body coordination. Representing rigid bodies in 3-D space by unit dual quaternion kinematics, a distributed control strategy, together with a specified rooted-tree structure, are proposed to control the attitude and position of networked rigid bodies(More)
A visible-light photocatalyst of multiwalled carbon nanotubes decorated with TiO2 nanoparticles (MWCNT/TiO2) was synthesized by a two-step method, in which TiO2 was first mounted on MWCNT surfaces by hydrolysis of tetrabutyl titanate and further crystallized into anatase nanocrystal in a vacuum furnace at 500°C. The photocatalytic degradation of methylene(More)
The mutual effects of Cu(II) and phosphate on their interaction with γ-Al(2)O(3) are investigated by using batch experiments combined with density functional theory (DFT) calculations. The results of batch experiments show that coexisting phosphate promotes the retention of Cu(II) on γ-Al(2)O(3), whereas phosphate retention is not affected by coexisting(More)
Graphene oxide/Fe(3)O(4) (GO/Fe(3)O(4)) composites were synthesized and characterized by scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The removal of Cu(II) and a natural organic macromolecule (fulvic acid (FA)) by GO/Fe(3)O(4) was investigated. The mutual effects of FA/Cu(II) on Cu(II) and FA sorption(More)
The problems of coordination of multiagent systems with second-order locally Lipschitz continuous nonlinear dynamics under directed interaction topology are investigated in this paper. A completely nonlinear input-to-state stability (ISS)-based framework, drawing on ISS methods, with the aid of results from graph theory, matrix theory, and the ISS(More)
Carbon nanotubes have attracted great interest in multidisciplinary study since their discovery. Herein, radionuclide 243Am(III) sorption to uncapped multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) was carried out at 20+/-2 degrees C in 0.01 and 0.1 M NaClO4 solutions. Effects of 243Am(III) solution concentration, ionic strength, and pH on 243Am(III) sorption to MWCNTs(More)
The main contribution of this paper is the design of a unit dual quaternion-based attitude and position regulator. The dynamic model of rigid body represented by unit dual quaternion is derived firstly from the rotational and the translational dynamics. And then an output feedback regulator, which ensures asymptotical stability, is proposed using unit dual(More)
