AbstractThe nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) analytical technique was used to investigate the double walled carbon nanotubes (DWNTs) electromagnetic properties of inner walls. The local magnetic and electronic properties of inner nanotubes in DWNTs were analyzed using 25% 13C enriched C 60 by which the effect of dipolar coupling could be minimized. The diamagnetic shielding was determined due to the ring currents on outer nanotubes in DWNTs. The NMR chemical shift anisotropy (CSA) spectra and spin-lattice relaxation studies reveal the metallic properties of the inner nanotubes with a signature of the spin-gap opening below 70 K.

Effect of membrane property and operating conditions on phytochemical properties and permeate flux during clarification of pineapple juiceLaorko, Aporn; Li, Zhenyu; Tongchitpakdee, Sasitorn; Chantachum, Suphitchaya; Youravong, Wirote (Elsevier BV, 2010-10)The effects of membrane property on the permeate flux, membrane fouling and quality of clarified pineapple juice were studied. Both microfiltration (membrane pore size of 0.1 and 0.2 μm) and ultrafiltration (membrane molecular weight cut-off (MWCO) of 30 and 100 kDa) membranes were employed. Membrane filtration did not have significant effects on the pH, reducing sugar and acidity of clarified juice whereas the suspended solids and microorganism were completely removed. The 0.2 μm membrane gave the highest permeate flux, total vitamin C content, total phenolic content and antioxidant capacity as well as the highest value of irreversible fouling. Based on these results, the membrane with pore size of 0.2 μm was considered to be the most suitable membrane for the clarification of pineapple juice. The optimum operating conditions for the clarification pineapple juice by membrane filtration was a cross-flow velocity of 3.4 ms-1 and transmembrane pressure (TMP) of 0.7 bar. An average flux of about 37 lm-2 h-1 was obtained during the microfiltration of pineapple juice under the optimum conditions using batch concentration mode. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
The acoustic properties of Salpa thompsoniWiebe, Peter H.; Chu, Dezhang; Kaartvedt, Stein; Hundt, Anna; Melle, Webjørn; Ona, Egil; Batta-Lona, Paola G. (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2009-12-01)Aggregations of the salp Salpa thompsoni were encountered during the Antarctic krill and ecosystem-studies cruise on the RV "G.O. Sars" from 19 February to 27 March 2008. The salp's in situ target strength (TS), size, number of individuals in aggregate chains, and chain angle of orientation were determined. Shipboard measurements were made of Salpa thompsoni's material properties. Individual aggregates were mostly 45.5-60.6 mm in mean length; relatively rare solitaries were ∼100 mm. Chains ranged from 3 to at least 121 individuals, and in surface waters (<20 m), they showed no preferred angle of orientation. Sound-speed contrast (h) ranged from 1.0060 to 1.0201 and density contrast (g) estimates between 1.0000 and 1.0039. The in situ TS distributions peaked between-75 and - 76 dB at 38 kHz, with a secondary peak at approximately - 65 dB. TS ranged between-85 and - 65 dB at 120 and 200 kHz and peaked around-74 dB. The measured in situ TS of salps reasonably matched the theoretical scattering-model predictions based on multi-individual chains. The backscattering from aggregate salps gives rise to TS values that can be similar to krill and other zooplankton with higher density and sound-speed contrasts. © 2009 International Council for the Exploration of the Sea.
Gas Permeation and Physical Aging Properties of Iptycene Diamine-Based Microporous PolyimidesAlghunaimi, Fahd; Ghanem, Bader; Alaslai, Nasser Y.; Swaidan, Raja; Litwiller, Eric; Pinnau, Ingo (Elsevier BV, 2015-05-12)The synthesis and gas permeation properties of two 6FDA-dianhydride-based polyimides prepared from 2,6-diaminotriptycene (6FDA-DAT1) and its extended iptycene analog (6FDA-DAT2) are reported. The additional benzene ring on the extended triptycene moiety in 6FDA–DAT2 increases the free volume over 6FDA-DAT1 and reduces the chain packing efficiency. The BET surface area based on nitrogen adsorption in 6FDA-DAT2 (450 m2g−1) is ~40% greater than that of 6FDA-DAT1 (320 m2g−1). 6FDA-DAT1 shows a CO2 permeability of 120 Barrer and CO2/CH4 selectivity of 38, whereas 6FDA-DAT2 exhibits a 75% increase in CO2 permeability to 210 Barrer coupled with a moderate decrease in selectivity (CO2/CH4=30). Interestingly, minimal physical aging was observed over 150 days for both polymers and attributed to the high internal free volume of the shape-persistent iptycene geometries. The aged polyimides maintained CO2/CH4 selectivities of 25-35 along with high CO2 permeabilities of 90-120 Barrer up to partial CO2 pressures of 10 bar of an aggressive 50:50 CO2:CH4 mixed-gas feed, suggesting potential application in membranes for natural gas sweetening.
