Synthesis, Evaluation, Modeling and Simulation of Nano-pore NaA Zeolite Membranes
Authors : R. Mansoor Kazemimoghadam,Zahra Amiri Rigi,


Zeolite membranes have uniform and molecular-sized pores that separate molecules based on the differences in the molecules’ adsorption and diffusion properties. Strong electrostatic interaction between ionic sites and water molecules (due to its highly polar nature) makes the zeolite NaA membrane very hydrophilic. Zeolite NaA membranes are thus well suited for the separation of liquid-phase...

Synthesis and Characterization of Nano Silver for Different Temperatures and their Antimicrobial Activity
Authors : R. Sathiya Priya,D. Geetha,P.S. Ramesh,V. Aroulmoji,


Silver nanoparticles were synthesized at four different calcinations temperature viz., 150°C, 200°C, 250°C and 300°C by chemical reduction method. Silver nitrate was taken as precursor and sodium citrate as a reducing agent. The prepared silver nanoparticles were identified by UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy. Structural, morphological and size of the synthesized nanoparticles were...

Hydrogenation Process Analysis with a Slurry Reactor
Authors : Mansoor Kazemimoghadam,


The liquid-phase catalytic hydrogenation of dimethyl-nitrobenzene (DN) to Dimethyl-aniline (DA) was carried out in ethanol using 5% Pd/C as a catalyst. The effects of hydrogen partial pressure (400–1000 kPa), reaction temperature (343–403⁰K), catalyst loading (5–15 g/lit), speed of stirring range (200-800 rpm) and dimethyl-nitrobenzene concentration (0.12–0.75 mol/lit) on the...
