    , Article Minerals Engineering ; Volume 17, Issue 1 , 2004 , Pages 89-92 ; 08926875 (ISSN) Keshavarz Alamdari, E ; Moradkhani, D ; Darvishi, D ; Askari, M ; Behnian, D ; Sharif University of Technology
    Simultaneous extraction of zinc and cadmium by a mixture of di-2-ethyl hexyl phosphoric acid (DEHPA) and mono-2-ethyl hexyl phosphoric acid (MEHPA), and the synergistic effect of MEHPA on co-extraction of zinc and cadmium with DEHPA have been investigated. It was shown that the extraction of zinc and cadmium by DEHPA and/or MEHPA can be increased by an increase of pH. The results also illustrate that the pH0.5 of zinc, by increase in MEHPA from 0.1 to 8 vol%, did not vary significantly while that of cadmium varies from 0.63 to 2.4. In other words MEHPA prevents selective extraction of zinc from aqueous media containing both zinc and cadmium. Studies on the selective separation parameter...

    Thermodynamics of extraction of Zn2+ from sulfuric acid media contacting to a mixture of DEHPA and MEHPA diluted with 80 wt% aromatic - aliphatic kerosene with a constant DEHPA to MEHPA ratio is investigated at different acidities, concentrations and temperatures. As a result, the extraction reaction is found to be endothermic with a zinc distribution factor that increases with increasing of the temperature, acidity of the solution and the concentration of the extradant. The mechanism of the extraction reaction is shown to be different for pH > 1 with that at pH <1. The pH of the aqueous media has also an important influence on progressing of the extraction reaction

    A new ROI extraction method for FKP images using global intensity

    , Article 2012 6th International Symposium on Telecommunications, IST 2012 ; 2012 , Pages 1147-1150 ; 9781467320733 (ISBN) Ehteshami, N. S. M ; Tabandeh, M ; Fatemizadeh, E ; Sharif University of Technology
    Finger-Knuckle-Print (FKP) is one of the newest biometrics. In this paper, a novel approach has been proposed to segment the Region of Interest (ROI) of a FKP image using the global intensity. This method upgrades the speed and accuracy of segmentation stage, as well as the pace of other steps of the procedure. This has been achieved by employing the area with maximum intensity in ROI extraction, instead of using the creases of the knuckle image. To confirm this improvement, lots of experiments have been performed and the method has been compared with the only existing schemes for ROI extraction suggested by Zhang and Kekre. At the end, the captured ROI images obtained by three methods have...

    Summary keywords are words that are used in the reference extracted summary, therefore can be used to discriminate between summary sentences from non-summary ones. Finding these words is important for the extractive summarization algorithms that measure the importance of a sentence based on the importance of its constituent words. This paper is focused on extracting summary keywords in the multi-party meeting domain. We test previously proposed keyword extraction algorithms and evaluate their performance to determine summary keywords. We also propose a new approach which uses discourse information to find local important keywords and show that it outperforms all the previous methods. We... 

    Deterministic randomness extraction from generalized and distributed Santha-Vazirani sources

    , Article SIAM Journal on Computing ; Volume 46, Issue 1 , 2017 , Pages 1-36 ; 00975397 (ISSN) Beigi, S ; Etesami, O ; Gohari, A ; Sharif University of Technology

    A Santha-Vazirani (SV) source is a sequence of random bits where the conditional distribution of each bit, given the previous bits, can be partially controlled by an adversary. Santha and Vazirani show that deterministic randomness extraction from these sources is impossible. In this paper, we study the generalization of SV sources for nonbinary sequences. We show that unlike the binary setup of Santha and Vazirani, deterministic randomness extraction in the generalized case is sometimes possible. In particular, if the adversary has access to s "nondegenerate" dice that are c-sided and can choose one die to throw based on the previous realizations of the dice, then deterministic randomness...

    An experimental study was conducted to investigate the extraction of oxidized sulfur compounds from gas oil. Solvents used for this purpose included acetone, acetonitrile, methanol and propanol. The effect of solvent concentration, solvent to gas oil ratio, temperature, time and number of stages was studied. To select the best solvent and conditions for extraction, two criteria were considered: high desulfurization and more hydrocarbon recovery. Results showed that extraction time and temperature have no significant effect. Methanol for low ability of extraction of oxidized sulfur compounds and propanol for low hydrocarbon recovery were excluded from further experiments. After the tests, the...

    , Article Analytical Methods ; Volume 5, Issue 18 , Jul , 2013 , Pages 4846-4851 ; 17599660 (ISSN) Bagheri, H ; Dehghan, M ; Es'Haghi, A ; Naderi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    A new and convenient format of single drop microextraction (SDME) was developed and applied for isolation of some selected aryloxyphenoxypropionate herbicides from aquatic media. In contrast to the conventional SDME procedure, in this set-up the extraction microdrop was positioned at the bottom of a conical vial in order to provide much higher stability for the organic extraction phase while a magnetic bar was used for stirring the aqueous solution. A simple magnet was used for positioning the bar on the top of the microdrop prior to stirring. The whole set-up led to the use of any volume of extraction solvent with unlimited stirring rates. Some important extraction parameters such as the... 

    Separation of Re and Mo from roasting-dust leach-liquor using solvent extraction technique by TBP

    , Article Separation and Purification Technology ; Volume 86 , February , 2012 , Pages 143-148 ; 13835866 (ISSN) Keshavarz Alamdari, E ; Darvishi, D ; Haghshenas, D. F ; Yousefi, N ; Sadrnezhaad, S. K ; Sharif University of Technology
    Re/Mo separation is studied by a new solvent extraction technique which is based on extraction mechanisms of the constituent metals. Based on McCabe-Thiele plots, a flow diagram has been proposed for separation and purification of Re over Mo. Re-recovery section of the diagram shows that Re is extracted when major amount of Mo is removed. For removal of the remained Mo, a two-stage extraction is required at pH = 2 and V a/V o = 1. In order to obtain Re, the resulted aqueous phase is stripped by adding sulfuric acid. According to the results, while more Re is extracted at less pH, optimum extraction of Mo happens at pH = 1.2. Re selectivity over Mo maximizes by approaching of the pH to zero

    In the present study, the thermodynamics and mechanisms of vanadium extraction by a mixture of bis-2-ethylhexyl phosphoric acid (D2EHPA) and tri-n butyl phosphate (TBP) from sulfate medium were investigated. It was found that the maximum extraction percent of vanadium occurs at pH 1.8 under ambient conditions; this phenomenon was ascribed to the predominant presence of cationic species of vanadium (VO2+) at this pH. Based on the Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectrums, the POH bond of D2EHPA was found responsible for the extraction of VO2+ species through a cationic exchange mechanism. Employing the slope analysis method showed that the stoichiometric reaction...

    , Article 2007 5th Joint ASME/JSME Fluids Engineering Summer Conference, FEDSM 2007, San Diego, CA, 30 July 2007 through 2 August 2007 ; Volume 2 FORA, Issue PART A , 2007 , Pages 239-244 ; 0791842886 (ISBN); 9780791842881 (ISBN) Haghdoost, A ; Shah Alami, M ; Mansouri, H ; Sharif University of Technology
    Mass transfer rates to the drops in liquid-liquid extraction equipment are often likely to be reduced by the presence of surface active contaminants. This reduction in mass transfer is said to be due to a reduction in terminal velocity, and to changes in pattern of internal circulation. A single-drop extraction apparatus was used to investigate the dependency of mass transfer coefficient on the amount of surfactant added in a system of n-butanol/succinic acid/water. Three types of surfactants, SDS, DTMAC and Triton X-100, were used to study their effects on the inhibition of mass transfer in liquid-liquid extraction. The effect of surfactants concentration on extraction percentage, overall...

    Feature vector extraction, based on local image texture, is a primitive algorithm for many other applications, like segmentation, clustering and identification. If these feature vectors are a good match to the human visual system (HVS), we can expect to get the appropriate results by using them. Gabor filters has been used for this purpose successfully. In this paper we introduce a novel refinement, with the use of Matching Pursuit (MP) to improve the Gabor based texture feature extractor. With this improvement, we show that the separability of different textures will increase. Another consideration in this work is computation complexity. Therefore, we limit the basis function set to reduce...
