Effect of Sintering Temperature on the Structural Magnetic and Electrical Properties of Zinc Ferrite Samples

Zinc ferrite was synthesized by sol–gel method. Fine particles with different grain size were obtained by subsequent heat treatment at different temperatures. The structure of all the prepared samples was elucidated using XRD. Magnetic measurement shows a decrease in magnetization with increase in sintering temperature. The variation of AC conductivity and dielectric constant was studied as a function of frequency, temperature and grain size. The Maxwell-Wagner two layer model and electron hopping mechanism was used to explain the variation of conduction and polarization with frequency. The observed high permittivity and conductivity for small grains were explained on the basis of the correlated barrier hopping model.

The Influence of Microbacterium hominis and Bacillus licheniformis Extracellular Polymers on Silver and Iron Oxide Nanoparticles Production; Green Biosynthesis and Mechanism of Bacterial Nano Production

Due to the abundant applications of metal nanoparticles on different area, researchers are always looking for fast, easy, cheap and non-toxic way to synthesis nanoparticles. In scientific communities, green and biological synthesis of nanoparticles have got more attention, so in this study 300 μl of extracellular polysaccharides (28.8717 mg/L and 35.5344 mg/L) from Microbacterium hominis and Bacillus licheniformis respectively were used to produce silver, silver oxide, iron oxide and iron metal nanoparticles from silver nitrate and iron chloride (1 mM).These strains were isolated on Caso Agar medium enriched with 20% sucrose. It was interesting that bacteria without polysaccharide could not produce these nanoparticles while the whole cells with extracellular polysaccharide do the same reaction as polysaccharides and carboxy methyl cellulose. FTIR analyzing showed these polysaccharides has similarities in structure with carboxy methyl cellulose and have certain functional groups such as hydroxyl, carbonyl, methyl and aldehyde, so the mechanism for making nanoparticles by these microorganisms is probably is not related to enzyme activities. The properties of nanoparticles were investigated by XRD, AFM and UV absorption (200-800 nm). The crystalline, approximate size and color changes were detected. Iron and iron oxide nanoparticles, was cubic structures with sizes of 29-42 nm and silver and silver oxide nanoparticles was hexagonal with 12-42 nm.

ZnO-nanoparticle Coated Multiwall Carbon Nanotube as a New Sensing Element for Highly Sensitive Potentiometric Determination of Thiosulfate Ion

Here, we are reporting the response properties of a simple and useful potentiometric thiosulfate-selective electrode based on multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) decorated with ZnO nanoparticles as sensing element. We successfully decorated the MWCNTs by using sol-gel process, which has not been reported to prepare such a decoration before. The ZnO-MWCNTs were characterized by XRD, SEM and TEM techniques. After optimization the composition requirements for construction the best electrode, the potentiometric response characteristics of the electrochemical sensor was examined for determination of thiosulfateanion in aqueous solutions. A Nernstian response of 30.3 ± 0.1 mV/dec with a detection limit of 1.24×10-7 M, a linear dynamic range of 1.35×10-7 to 1.45×10-1 M of thiosulfate and a response time of about 3 min are of good performance factors for the proposed electrode. The electrode demonstrated a reasonable repeatability and high selectivity towards the thiosulfate ion over the other tested anions in the solution.
