Abstract [en]

Capacitive deionization is an emerging method of desalinating brackish water that has been presented as an alternative to the widely applied technologies such as reverse osmosis. However, for the technology to find more widespread use, it is important not only to improve its efficiency but also to make its modeling more accessible for researchers. In this work, a program has been developed and provided as an open-source with which a user can simulate the performance of a capacitive deionization system by simply entering the basic experimental conditions. The usefulness of this program was demonstrated by predicting how the effluent concentration in a continuous-mode constant-voltage operation varies with time, as well as how it depends on the flow rate, applied voltage, and inlet ion concentration. Finally, the generality of the program has been demonstrated using data from reports in the literature wherein various electrode materials, cell structures, and operational modes were used. Thus, we conclude that the model, termed the dynamic Langmuir model, could be an effective and simple tool for modeling the dynamics of capacitive deionization.

Abstract [en]

Worldwide, millions of tons of crustaceans are produced every year and consumed as protein-rich seafood. However, the shells of the crustaceans and other non-edible parts constituting about half of the body mass are usually discarded as waste. These discarded crustacean shells are a prominent source of polysaccharide (chitin) and protein. Chitosan is a de-acetylated form of chitin obtained from the crustacean waste that has attracted attention for applications in food, biomedical, and paint industries due to its characteristic properties, like solubility in weak acids, film-forming ability, pH-sensitivity, biodegradability, and biocompatibility. We present an overview of the application of chitosan in composite coatings for applications in food, paint, and water treatment. In the context of food industries, the main focus is on fabrication and application of chitosan-based composite films and coatings for prolonging the post-harvest life of fruits and vegetables, whereas anti-corrosion and self-healing properties are the main properties considered for antifouling applications in paints in this review.

Abstract [en]

Hydrogen production from methanol rather than the traditional source, methane, is considered to be advantageous in ease of transportation and storage. However, the current copper-based catalysts utilized in methanol steam reforming are associated with challenges of sintering at high temperature and production of CO which could poison fuel cells. In addressing these challenges, ZnO nanorods were grown hydrothermally on the surface of cordierite and impregnated with Cu to produce catalysts for methanol steam reforming. The catalysts were characterized using SEM, XRD, FTIR, XPS, BET and Raman Spectroscopy. A fixed-bed reactor was used for testing the catalysts while the reaction products were characterized using a GC fitted with FID and TCD. The effects of temperature, methanol concentration and particle size of catalysts on methanol steam reforming were investigated. The experiments were carried out between 180 and 350 degrees C. CO selectivity of 0% was observed for temperatures between 180 and 230 degrees C for 0.8 MeOH:1H(2)O with an average H-2 selectivity of 98% for that temperature range. XPS showed that the catalyst was relatively unchanged after reaction while Raman spectroscopy revealed coke formation on the catalyst surface for reactions carried out above 300 degrees C. This shows that the catalyst is active and selective for the reaction. Publications LLC. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Abstract [en]

Capacitive deionization (CDI) is emerging as an environment-friendly and energy-efficient water desalination option for meeting the growing global demand for drinking water. It is important to develop models that can predict and optimize the performance of CDI systems with respect to key operational parameters in a simple way. Such models could open up modeling studies to a wider audience by making modeling more accessible to researchers. We have developed the dynamic Langmuir model that can describe CDI in terms of a few fundamental macroscopic properties. Through extensive comparisons with data from the literature, it is shown that the model could describe and predict charge storage, ion adsorption, and charge efficiency for varying input ion concentrations, applied voltages, electrolyte compositions, electrode asymmetries, and electrode precharges in the equilibrium state. We conclude that the model could accurately describe a wide range of key features while being a simpler approach than the commonly applied theories for modeling CDI.

Abstract [en]

Both of Fabry-Pérot interferometry and the DC electrochemical method have been simultaneously used for the first time to measure in situ the anodic current density (J) of aluminum oxide films in 0,2,4,5,6,8 and 10% sulfuric acid solutions (H2SO4). The calculated values of J by Fabry-Pérot interferometry were verified by the DC electrochemical method, i.e., a potentiostat, and the AC electrochemical method, i.e., a potentiostat with an accessory of AC impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The corresponding thickness (d) of the aluminum oxide (Al2O3) film to the anodic current density was determined by Fabry-Pérot interferometry under a potentiostatic condition of 9 V with respect to the open circuit potential of the aluminum samples in the H2SO4 solutions, for 90 minutes. Then, the obtained d of the Al2O3 films by Fabry-Pérot interferometry was verified by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and compared to d values that were obtained by the EIS. The calculated J by Fabry-Pérot interferometry was found in agreement with those of the DC electrochemical method. In contrast, the calculated J by Fabry-Pérot interferometry was found in a 3 fold discrepancy with data obtained by the EIS.
