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. 12(b) it is observed that the dielectric loss decreases as frequency increases. The low dielectric loss at high frequency of the grown crystals shows that these materials possess better optical quality with lesser defects …show more content…

    The crystallite size of the catalyst was 5.265 nm. After XRD analysis we can confirm that the crystalline size of CuMnRC1 has lower than the CuMnRC2 and CuMnRC3 catalyst so that it performs better result for CO oxidation at a lower temperature. Knowing width of XRD peak and Scherrer Eq., the calculated nano-crystalline of CuMnRC1, CuMnRC2 and CuMnAgRC3 catalyst is presented in Table 4. Table 4: XRD analysis of CuMnRC catalysts…

    5 shows the XPS spectrum of the fresh and aged Cu-BEA-Nb and Cu-BEA-CeNb catalysts. The Nb3d signals were fitted with a doublet peaks in the BE range 206.78–207.87 eV for Nb3d5 and of 210.05–210.86 eV for Nb3d3 (Dzwigaj et al. 2010). These values could be assigned to the isolated mononuclear Nb2O5, Nb5+ in the framework of BEA zeolite. The Nb3d signal intensities of Cu-BEA-Nb and Cu-BEA-CeNb aged catalysts decreased compared to those of the fresh catalysts.…

    A novel synthesis method to prepare Si3N4 nanowires from the amorphous silicon nitride (a-Si3N4) powder synthesized by low-temperature vapor-phase reaction method was investigated. Highly crystallized α-Si3N4 nanowires were synthesized from the heat-treatment of a-Si3N4 powder under ammonia atmosphere. The surface of the nanowires was smooth and clean without any attached particles. The thickness of the nanowires was in the range ~200–300 nm with the lengths of tens of micrometers. The nucleation of nanowires from the reaction between SiO and N2 occurs on the surface of a-Si3N4 powder, which is covered by a thin layer of SiO2, and the nanowires grow from the re-arrangement of Si and N atoms of the a-Si3N4 powder.…

    The variation of log resistivity with inverse temperature for SnS2 thin films at different precursor solution volumes was shown in fig 12. The activation energy of SnS2 thin films were calculated as 0.29 eV, 0.09 eV, 0.05 eV, 0.04 eV and 0.10 eV corresponding to 5 ml, 10 ml, 15 ml, 20 ml and 25 ml precursor solution volumes respectively. It was found that the activation energy values decreases with increase in precursor solution volume up to 20 ml and then increases for further increase in precursor solution volume. The decrease in activation energy with increase in precursor solution volume may be attributed to the change in electronic structure corresponding to the increase in thickness values [48]. The activation energy values indicate the presence of shallow donor levels very near the bottom of the conduction band [40].…

    Also, their Rf values indicate that the recrystallized solute moved less distance compare to the crude product and started material. This suggests that the product made was Meta-Methyl nitrobenzoate even if it has little different melting point from the literature melting point which is 7880°C. Conclusion/Discussion: During the electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction between methyl benzoate and a nitrating solution of sulfuric and nitric acids, the Meta-Methyl nitrobenzoate product was obtained based on the product melting point range. Percent yield of the crude 56.42% and the percent yield of the recrystallized product was 52.59%. This would indicate that during the recrystallization there was a reduction in the percentage yield of the production.…

    The Zinc nitrate hexa hydrate [Zn(NO3)2.6H2O] and sodium hydroxide (NaOH) was adopted as synthesis precursors. The production unit for this chemical synthesis method was consisted of three neck glass flask and of a magnetic stirrer with temperature control. The reaction was carried out in a nitrogen environment to prevent oxidation. In the plass chamber, NaOH was dissolved in Starch solution (3% concentration of Starch in double distilled water solution) to a concentration of 0.1M and the resulting solutions were stirried at 700 C for 1 hour. Then, a solution of 0.5 M Zn(NO3)2.6H2O was added dropwise under constant stirring.…
