Abstract:Silver modified polyacrylonitrile-activated carbon (Ag-PAN-AC) composite fibers containing various AC concentrations were prepared by using an electrospinning process. Ag-PAN nanoparticles were initially prepared via in-situ reduction of silver nitrate using hydrazinium hydroxide as a reducing agent. The influence of AC con [...] Read more.

Abstract:Low density polyethylene (LDPE) containing activated carbon (AC) was foamed with azodicarbonamide (ADC) through an extrusion process. The effects of ADC and AC contents on the cellular structure, void fraction, density, thermal and mechanical properties, and crystallinity of composite foams were investigated. The density of [...] Read more.

Abstract:The Davenport diagram, which illustrates the interactions of pH, bicarbonate and pCO2 as related to respiratory/metabolic phases of acidosis/alkalosis was transformed into a computerized neural network. This transformation enables computer-assisted prediction of acidosis/alkalosis subtypes on the basis of any two factors f [...] Read more.

Abstract:The processing of fibre reinforced carbon nanotube (CNT) loaded polymer composites (nanocomposites) requires that CNTs be mixed (or loaded) into the polymer prior to impregnating the fibres to fabricate a nanocomposite. The fabrication process uses vacuum-assisted resin transfer moulding (VARTM), which is complicated due to [...] Read more.
