Three different zeolitic materials derived from coal combustion by-products (CCBs) were used to treat local coal ash landfill leachate at the same power plant. The zeolitc materials properties were characterized in terms of mineralogical composition (XRD), chemical composition (XRF), total carbon content, morphological analysis (SEM), specific surface area (BET method), cation exchange capacity (CEC), loss […]

Dyeing and finishing processes for the textiles are practiced by human beings since ancient time. However, in recent years a lot of attention has put in these processes because of the awareness of sustainability and eco-friendly textiles and garments. Textile processes use many toxic dyes and chemicals. This waste water is discharged into fields, ponds […]

COOPER, Petr VOZKA, Gozdem KILAZ; Optimization of comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography with time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GC×GC/TOF-MS) for conventional and alternative jet fuels analysis; Advanced Materials and Technologies Environmental Sciences; 2018:2(1):146-156

Comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography and time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GC×GC/TOF-MS) has been used in group-type chemical compositional analyses of gas turbine fuel as this state-of-the-art technique enables a detailed output of fuel constituents. However, it is an unreasonable expectation for one set of operational parameters to yield optimal separation for every fuel type. The aim of […]

Glauconite and kaolin was used as adsorbent materials for iron ion removal from synthetic solutions. Different concentrations of iron solution have been prepared 10, 20 and 30 mg/L. Different doses of glauconite and kaolin were added 0.1, 0.55 and 1.0 g. Statistical design was used to determine the optimum conditions of iron adsorption on glauconite […]
