Electrochemical Performance.
To evaluate the electrochemical behaviors of the highly open framework of the as synthesized LTH on nickel foam electrodes NCA-L-@NF, NCA-L@G-NF and NCA-L@ BG-NF with three different feeding mole ratios , which is the best morphological foundation for fast redox reaction and charge accumulation, its potential application in high-performance supercapacitor has been investigated by cyclic voltammetry (CV), galvanostatic charge-discharge and electrochemical impedance (EIS) measurements in 6 M KOH solution. Figure 7(a), Shows CV curves of NCA-L-@NF, NCA-L@G-NF and NCA-L@ BG-NF with three different feeding mole ratios are recorded at scan rates of 5mVs-1. An obvious pair of redox peaks in the potential range of 0 - 0.6

15,41In comparison NCA-L-@NF and NCA-L@G-NF, the NCA-L@ BG-NF-3 possess larger enclosed CV area. Signifying better capacitive behavior. Furthermore, the integral area of CV curves increased in order of NCA-L@ BG-NF-3> NCA-L@ BG-NF-1> NCA-L-@NF> NCA-L@ BG-NF-2> NCA-L@G-NF suggesting that the average capacitance of NCA-L@ BG-NF-3 was the …show more content…
As can be seen curves of NCA-L-@NF, NCA-L@G-NF and NCA-L@ BG-NF with three .different mole feeding ratios ,the charge discharge curves were not identical linear, which further confirmed that Faradic reaction proceeding during process.18,42 The discharge time of NCA-L@ BG-NF-3 was the longest .implying the best charge storage performance.At a current density of 6 A/g,the specific capacitances were calculated to be 3996 F/g NCA-L@ BG-NF-3,3792 F/g NCA-L@ BG-NF-1,3780 F/g NCA-L-@NF, NCA-L@ BG-NF-2,3108F/g NCA-L@G-NF.As shown the the figure (7c) the superior electrochemical performance is due to the synergetic effect between conductive GO or BGN and NCA-L-NF when compared with pure NCA-L-NF. 9 It may be attributed to GN/BGN in the electrode convey a conductive network for electron transportation during redox reaction.because of the presence of numerous nanochannels, also the unique morphology of BGN–LTH acts as a perfect reservoir to facilitates enhanced contact, diffusion as well as penetration of OH-ions for highest redox processes for charge storage.43Besides these the noteworthy increase in their electrochemical activity is due to bromination of GO which leads to the reduction. It is well-known that BGN is exceptionally strategic to serve as a good electronic conductor for the redox

    As one of the two-dimensional (2D) materials, m-MoS2 exhibits promising electronic properties such as high carrier mobilities (200 cm2V-1s-1) at room temperature, high current on/off ratio (1×108) and ultralow standby power dissipation [7,8]. Based on atomic layer MoS2, thin film transistors (TFT), optoelectronic devices and digital circuits have been successfully fabricated [9-11]. Besides, high surface-to-volume ratio, selective reactivity upon exposure to range of analytes, rapid response and recovery make MoS2 as a superior gas sensor with higher sensitivity and selectivity in comparison to graphene and other 2D materials [12-15]. It has been reported that the mechanically cleaved single and multilayer MoS2 based field effect transistors can be used as NO gas sensor with a detection limit of 0.8 ppm [16]. Flexible MoS2 TFT array on polyethylene terephthalate substrate shows high sensitivity towards NO2 sensing.…

    Considering the change on interfacial energy, the most conducive shape to form the two-dimensional nucleus is the cylinder. Suppose that the cylinder nucleus, radius r and height h, is the same high to an atomic, then the variation of critical free energy that formed the two-dimensional crystal nucleus of the metal atoms and stably existed is ∆G_c. If the cathode overpotential is very serious, ∆G_c could be expressed as [11]: ∆G_c=(πhσ^2 A)⁄(ρn_0 Fη_c )…

    The figure 1 shows a comparison between the HS2-9-1-8 high-speed steel microstructures for different plastic deformation degree (nital attack reagent, 100 x enlargement). The sample deformed with =70% has the best microstructure because the constituents repartition is uniform; structure is very fine and, probably, the best mechanical properties. The thermo-mechanic treatment continued with an oil quenching (oil temperature 100oC), has maintained the positive evolution of the microstructure (Murakami attack reagent, 400 x enlargement). For =70% is observed the carbides with small dimensions (dark colour area) and their uniform distribution. The =70% microstructure is better than =60% and obvious than =0% (see figure 2).…

    A graph is plotted between dielectric constant (εr) versus log frequency for different temperatures 30 0C, 60 0C, 90 0C and 120 0C for Tb3+: SA single crystals. From the Fig12(a) we can conclude that dielectric constant is high at low frequencies which is because of space charge polarization [61] which depends on purity and perfection of the sample. The maximum values of dielectric constant is 6.9, 6.8 for SR and SEST grown Tb3+: SA single crystals respectively, minimum values are 1.4, 1.2 for SR and SEST grown Tb3+: SA single crystals respectively. A graph is drawn between the dielectric loss and log frequency for different temperatures 30 0C, 60 0C, 90 0C and 120 0C. As seen in Fig.…

    The Gibb’s free energy change of adsorption was found to be in range of -2.6 to -0.05KJ/mole. These results indicate that the adsorption of stearic acid complex is feasible and spontaneous. The enthalpy(ΔH) and entropy(ΔS) were found negative and positive values respectively. The negative value of enthalpy confirmed that the adsorption of stearic acid complex is an exothermic process. This can be due to energy released after the adsorption process being higher than that need to the solvent molecules.…

    The average penetrations measured in the specimens were: 78.0 mm (R), 58.5 mm (L15), 50.3 mm (L30), and 34.0 mm (L60). The results show that R mortars had more capillary suction than mortars with WTS. According to Pavía and Treacy (2006), smaller the dimensions and more connected the pores, more evident are the capillary effects. The results of capillary tests show that the pores in R mortars had smaller dimension than WTS mortars and then the water suction was higher. The large pores in mortars with WTS difficult the capillary effect (Liu et al., 2011) and contributed to decrease the mechanical properties (Rovnaník, 2010).…

    As seen in Fig.8, when the frequency was zero, the two constant phase elements (CPE1 and CPE2) were infinite value. Thus the circuit was equal to a series circuit of three equivalent resistances. In this case, the polarization resistance in the equivalent circuit was equal to the sum of the three equivalent resistances. The value of polarization resistance (Rs+Rpo+Rct) in different seawater’s salinity could be arranged as R30.04‰> R33.01‰> R29.84‰> R32.37‰. Usually, the smaller value of polarization resistance was, the larger corrosion current was, indicating the worse corrosion resistance of the coating.…
