This study introduces two new, simple, and scalable methods for synthesis of “cysteine–graphene oxide” hybrid, namely nucleophilic and covalent methods. Produced adsorbents could uptake 500 and 600 mg Hg2+/g, respectively, which are larger than capacities of most of the commercial adsorbents. By means of different instrumental techniques, chemical structures of the obtained graphene products were disclosed, and two pertinent mechanisms for their formations were suggested. Time for attaining uptake equilibrium for nucleophilic/covalent samples was 30 min/150 min, and kinetics was controlled by liquid film resistance/chemical reaction mechanisms, respectively. High selectivity and good...

In this research, a triethylene glycol (TEG)/nano-zeolite Na-Y liquid membrane was developed in order to investigate the effect of zeolite nanoparticles on separation performance of a liquid membrane. To do this, a high yield nano-zeolite Na-Y was synthesized using mid-synthesis addition method. The synthesized samples were characterized by XRD, FT-IR, and SEM (EDX) instrumental techniques. A supported liquid membrane was prepared by impregnating a porous hydrophilic PVDF support with TEG and nano-zeolite Na-Y. The permeation tests of single gas components of O2, N2 and CO2 were carried out at pressure differences of 0.8 and 1.8 bar. The permeances of the single gases were found to be: CO2 >...

Fabrication and characterization of different surface charged cellulose electrospun scaffolds including cellulose acetate (CA), cellulose, carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) and quaternary ammonium cationic cellulose (QACC) for biomedical applications have been reported in this research. Several instrumental techniques were employed to characterize the nanofibers. MTT assay and cell attachment studies were also carried out to determine the cytocompatibility, viability and proliferation of the scaffolds. Fabricated CA, cellulose, CMC and QACC nanofibers had 100–600 nm diameter, −9, −1.75, −12.8, + 22 mV surface potential, 2.5, 4.2, 7.2, 7 MPa tensile strength, 122, 320, 515, 482 MPa Young modules,...
