A Facile, Two-step Synthesis and Characterization of Fe3O4-Lcysteine- Graphene Quantum Dots as a Multifunctional Nanocomposite, M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology ; Madah Hosseini, Hamid Reza
In this research, a facile, two-step synthesis was reported for 34-LCysteine- nanocomposites. The first step comprises the preparation of LCysteine functionalized magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) core-shell structures via co-precipitation method. In the second step, graphene quantum dots (GQDs), which were synthesized by citric acid carbonization, added to the functionalized MNPs and finally refluxed at the appropriate time and temperature. LCysteine as a biocompatible, natural amino acid were used to link MNPs with GQDs. This nanocomposite was characterized by various techniques. XRD and FT-IR were used to investigate the formation of MNPs and LCysteine existence on the MNPs surface. XPS...
Synthesis of “L-cysteine–graphene oxide” hybrid by new methods and elucidation of its uptake properties for Hg(II) ion, Article Separation Science and Technology (Philadelphia) ; Volume 53, Issue 6 , 2018 , Pages 843-855 ; 01496395 (ISSN) ; Outokesh, M ; Akbari, A ; Kosari, M ; Tayyebi, A ; Sharif University of Technology

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...
RETRACTED ARTICLE: Study of stabilities of L-cysteine and L-methionine with divalent metal ions: A comparison of thermodynamic data, Article 5th International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering, iCBBE 2011 ; 2011 ; 9781424450893 (ISBN) ; Sharif University of Technology
The acidity and stability constants of M-Met (M: M2+; Met 1: L-methionine) complexes, determined by potentiometric pH titrations, were used to make a comparative investigation with L-cysteine (Cys). It is shown that regarding to M ion - binding properties vital differences on complex bilding were considered. It is demonstrated, that in M-Met complexes, M ion is coordinated to the carboxyl group, M ion is also able to build macrochelate over amine group. The upmentioned results demonstrate that for M-Met complex the stability constants is also largly determined by the affinity of Cu2+ for amino group but in opposite to Met, some metal ions such as Co2+, Cu2+, and Zn2+ build with Cys 2...
Fabrication of modified TiO 2 nanoparticle carbon paste electrode for simultaneous determination of dopamine, uric acid, and l-cysteine, Article Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry ; Volume 13, Issue 9 , 2009 , Pages 1433-1440 ; 14328488 (ISSN) ; Talebi, A ; Naeimi, H ; Nejati Barzoky, M ; Taghavinia, N ; Sharif University of Technology
A carbon paste electrode, modified with 2, 2″-[1,7- hepthandiylbis(nitriloethylidyne)]-bis-hydroquinone and TiO 2 nanoparticles, was used for the simultaneous determination of dopamine (DA), uric acid (UA), and l-cysteine. The study was carried out by using cyclic voltammetry, chronoamperometry, and square wave voltammetry (SWV) techniques. Some kinetic parameters such as the electron transfer coefficient (α) and heterogeneous rate constant (k s) were also determined for the DA oxidation. A dynamic range of 8.0-1400 μM, with the detection limit of 8.4∈×∈10 -7 M for DA, was obtained using SWV (pH∈=∈7.0). The prepared electrode was successfully applied for the determination of DA, UA, and...
Degradation of BTEX in groundwater by nano-CaO2 particles activated with L-cysteine chelated Fe(III): enhancing or inhibiting hydroxyl radical generation, Article Water Supply ; Volume 21, Issue 8 , 2021 , Pages 4429-4441 ; 16069749 (ISSN) ; Ali, M ; Cui, C ; Lyu, S ; Sharif University of Technology

The simultaneous oxidation performance of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene (BTEX) by nanoscale calcium peroxide particles (nCaO2) activated with ferric ions (Fe(III)) and the mechanism of the enhancement of BTEX degradation by L-cysteine (L-cys) were investigated. The batch experimental results showed that the nCaO2/Fe(III)/L-cys process was effective in the destruction of BTEX in both ultrapure water and actual groundwater. A proper amount of L-cys could enhance BTEX degradation due to the promotion of Fe(II)/Fe(III) redox cycles by the participation of L-cys, but an excessive presence of L-cys would cause inhibition. Adding 1.0 mM L-cys to the nCaO2/Fe(III) system, the...
