    1. INTRODUCTION Graphene consists of single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice. It is the basic structural element of many other forms of carbon, such as graphite, charcoal, carbon nanotubes and fullerenes. In simple terms, graphene, is a thin layer of pure carbon bonded together in a hexagonal honeycomb lattice. It is the thinnest compound known to man, the lightest material known, the strongest compound discovered, the best conductor of heat at room temperature and also the…

    Incomplete Carbon Glucose Preparation for sulfonated solid acid catalyst must undergo a process which is called carbonization or pyrolysis. Glucose is natural organic compounds had been used as starting raw material because it is cheap and less toxic. Carbonization is an important step before the sulfonation process because it will form amorphous carbon composed of small carbon sheets [B] and produced sites for sulfonic group to be attached or inserted into the small of non-graphitic carbon…

    chapter 8, Unbreakable, Miodownik discusses the significance and characteristics of various forms of carbon in a historical lens. Although derived from the same element, graphite, diamond, and graphene all have unique properties unlike any other materials. Miodownik begins by offering a relatable anecdote to his childhood art class in order to truly show the readers the prevalence and wonder of carbon. He then focuses the central idea of the chapter on the effect of structure on properties and…

    After the catalytic action, carbon dioxide, oxygen, vapor and NOX will remains as the byproduct leading to the exhaust end. This type of catalytic converter is widely used in diesel engines to reduce hydrocarbon (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions. These are also used on gasoline engines in American and Canadian market automobiles until 1981. Because of their failure to control…

    The polyurethane segments show high intersegment attraction such as hydrogen bonding and may be able to crystallize and form hard segments. In such polymers hard segments with Tg well above normal ambient temperature are separated by polyol soft segments, which in the mass are rubbery in nature. Hard and soft segments are arranged alternate along the polymer chain. Fig.7. Polyurethane chain configuration [32] 4.2.2. Polyurethane properties and advantages for product development…

    2-methyl-2-butanol with HCl to form 2-chloro-2-methylbutane, and to understand Sn1 and Sn2 reactions, in terms of how they are different and why one is more likely to happen over the other. The OH group in 2-methl-2-butanol is attached to a tertiary Carbon, meaning the reaction should occur via Sn1, a two-step reaction, and Cl should replace the OH group, to form a tertiary halide. HCl was added to 2-methyl-2-butanol and then several extractions were done to purify the product. The percent…

    alloy and Iron is an element. Steel is also called as an alloy of iron, with the content of carbon controlled. 4% of carbon in Iron makes it Cast Iron and when the carbon content is less than 2%, the product is steel. Cast Iron is made from pig iron, which is the by-product of smelting of iron from an iron-foundry. Mild steel, which is also known as plain carbon steel, approximately contains 0.05-0.15% of carbon. This makes it malleable and ductile. Mild steel has a relatively low tensile…

    New method of synthesis of oligoetherols with carbazole ring Renata Lubczak Abstract: The new method of synthesis of multifuntional oligoetherols with carbazole ring suitable for obtaining the polyurethane foams of enhanced thermal resistance was presented. At the first step of the synthesis the carbazole was reacted with excess glycidol to obtain the product of (n +1) functionality, where n is number of equivalents of glycidol reacted with carbazole. Carbazole reacts with glycidol without…
