  • Synthesis of nano grade ?–ferric oxide and evaluation of its catalytic properties

    Ferric oxide is a well–known catalyst for the thermal decomposition of ammonium perchlorate and hence it is extensively used as ballistic modifier for ammonium perchlorate based composite solid propellants. The particle size of conventional propellant grade ferric oxide was reduced to nano levels by continuous ball milling using a planetary ball mill employing zircon balls in isopropyl alcohol. ...

  • Gypsum Board in Fire — Modeling and Experimental Validation

    The thermal behavior of a commercially widespread gypsum board (810 kg/m 3) under fire condition has been investigated. For this purpose two 12 mm thick gypsum boards are subjected to the standard fire ISO 834 and the temperature distribution within them is measured by means of thermocouples placed at different depths in the samples. The results hereof are used to validate a numerical model based ...

  • Synthesis and modification of calcium carbonate nano–particles via reverse micro–emulsion method

    Two reverse microemulsion system of surfactants (Span®80 and Tween®80)/Toluene/water was selected for synthesis of CaCO3 nano–particles. CaCO3 particles synthesised were surface modified by stearic acid. The effect of different concentrations of surfactants ...

  • Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) - Case Study

    Example: Uranium enrichment Similar tasks: Nitric acid caprolactam production When uranium ore is converted into uranium hexafluoride (UF6) for uranium enrichment employing the diffusion process, or also when producing nitric acid and nitrogenous fertilizers for farming, laughing gas is produced by several undesirable side reactions. Thermal decomposition ...

  • Novel silver nanoparticles: synthesis, properties and applications

    In this paper, we present versatile and effective techniques to synthesise silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs)-based compounds such as colloidal silver nanoparticles (CSNPs) and silver nanoparticles powders (SNPPs). The CSNPs stabilised by a surfactant oleic acid were produced for the first time through the reduction of [Ag(NH3)2]+ ...

  • Carbonization of johkasou sludge using batch-type equipment

    The carbonization of dehydrated johkasou sludge was examined using batch-type equipment. Based on the temperature changes in the carbonization room and the gas combustion room, the carbonization process was divided into three phases: phase I, drying the sludge, phase II, thermal decomposition of the dried sludge, phase III, after phase II. The times required for phases I and II were strongly ...

  • Metal alkoxides as molecular precursor for the synthesis of metal oxide nanomaterials

    A versatile, convenient and non-toxic wet chemical method was utilised for the synthesis of uniform and monodispersable high-tech metal oxide nanopowder with controlled functional properties via using oxo-metal alkoxide as a single source molecular precursor at low temperature. The powder was characterised by different analytical techniques. SEM-EDS analyses showed consistency with the ...

  • Membrane development for applications in hydrogen production using the sulphur-iodine thermochemical route

    Careful optimisation of a safe and sustainable route for hydrogen production is a pressing need. Thermochemical processes employing water as raw material and nuclear/renewable energies as energy source are believed to be the best possible option in this direction, while alarming issues such as climate change and global warming are being taken into account. Amongst the well-identified cycles, the ...
