A theoretical approach of the ethanol adsorption on Au(100), Au(110) and Au(111) surfaces
The adsorption of ethanol on Au(100), Au(110) and Au(111) surfaces was studied using electronic structure calculations under the scheme of the density functional theory (DFT) with van der Waals corrections, vdW-DF2 and PBE ...
Preliminary overview and evaluation of a stepped solar distiller with internal reflective walls and borosilicate vacuum tubes
(Elsevier BV, 2017)
The present study demonstrates that the current use of stepped solar distillers can be enhanced to increase seawater desalination. To this end, we designed a stepped solar still with internal reflective walls and attached ...
Influence of Pyrolytic Seeds on ZnO Nanorod Growth Onto Rigid Substrates for Photocatalytic Abatement of Escherichia coli in water
(IWA Publishing, 2014)
ZnO nanorods (ZnO NRs) were grown on ZnO seeded fluorine doped tin oxide (FTO) substrates at low temperatures (90 °C) from Zn2+ precursors in alkaline aqueous solution. The ZnO seeds were deposited on the FTO substrate ...
Comparison between solar distillers with and without solar concentrator
(Allerton Press, Inc., 2016)
In order to desalinate sea water by only solar energy using they were designed and built three distillers in which experimental measurements were taken to calculate production, performance and cost. Distillers by solar ...
Microstructural stability, microhardness and oxidation behaviour of in situ reinforced Ti–8.5Al–1B–1Si (wt%)
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1998)
Microstructural stability, microhardness and oxidation behaviour of an in situ reinforced Ti–8.5Al–1B–1Si (wt%) alloy was examined in both air and argon environments. When exposed for up to 5760 min at temperatures below ...
Characterization of Glyceridic and Unsaponifiable Compounds of Sacha Inchi (Plukenetia huayllabambana L.) Oils
(American Chemical Society, 2014)
This work deals with the characterization of the main glyceridic and unsaponifiable components of oils obtained from Sacha inchi (Plukenetia huayllabambana L.) seed ecotypes collected during two harvests in the Department ...
Markers of quality and genuineness of commercial extra virgin sacha inchi oils
(Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, 2016)
This work tackles the study of the quality and authenticity of oils labeled and commercialized as extra virgin sacha inchi oil. Major and minor components as triglycerides, fatty acid methyl esters, tocopherols, sterols ...
Adsorption of antipyrine by activated carbons from FeCl3-activation of Tara gum
(Elsevier BV, 2018)
Activated carbons were synthesized by FeCl3-activation of Tara gum at different temperatures (400–1000 °C). The activating agent and the precursor were physically mixed at different ratios (r= FeCl3:precursor, 0.5–3.0 ...
Study of the mechanical and energetic properties of pellets produce from agricultural biomass of quinoa, beans, oat, cattail and wheat
The lack of conventional fuels in rural areas in Peru drives people to burn agricultural wastes that are used as fuel. Burning these wastes produce a large amount of gaseous pollutants that harm the health of ...
In vitro antiproliferative activity of palladium(II) thiosemicarbazone complexes and the corresponding functionalized chitosan coated magnetite nanoparticles
(The Royal Society of Chemistry and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, 2016)
This work reports the synthesis and characterization of palladium(II) complexes Pd(L1)2 (1), Pd(L2)2 (2), Pd(L3)2 (3) and Pd(L4)2 (4), where L1H: 1-naphthaldehyde thiosemicarbazone; L2H: 4-phenyl-(1-naphthaldehyde)thiose ...
