Abstract [en]

Investigations of Coptic mural paintings in historic churches and monasteries demand a deep understanding of the micro structure of the mural painting layers. The main objective of the present study is to study the efficiency of new avenues of computed X-ray tomography (CT Scan) and MATLAB in the analysis of Coptic mural paintings, either in the form of images or videos made to collect information about the physical characteristics of the material structure of the layers of mural paintings. These advanced techniques have been used in the investigation of samples of Coptic mural paintings dating back to the V-VIII century A.D, which have been collected from several locations in the Coptic monasteries in Upper Egypt. The application of CT-scanning is a powerful non-destructive tool for imaging and investigation which can be applied to the preservation of monuments made from many different materials. The second stage of research will be to characterize the materials through analytical techniques including XRD, XRF, EDX and FTIR to confirm the findings of CT scanning and to provide additional information concerning the materials used and their deterioration processes. This paper presents the results of the first pilot study in which CT scan and MATLAB have been utilized in combination for the non-destructive evaluation and investigation of Coptic mural paintings in Upper Egypt. The examinations have been carried out on mural painting samples from three important Coptic monasteries in Upper Egypt: the Qubbat Al Hawa Monastery in Aswan, the Saint Simeon Monastery in Aswan and the Saint Matthew the Potter Monastery in Luxor. This multi-stranded investigation has provided us with important information about the physical structure of the paintings, grains dimensions, grain texture, pore media characterization which include the micro porosity, BET and TPV, surface rendering, and calculation of the points in the surface through calculations completed using MATLAB. CT scanning assisted in the investigation and analyses of image surface details, and helped to visualize hidden micro structures that would otherwise be inaccessible due to over painting.

Abstract [en]

In this study, a novel sort of sample preparation sorbent was developed, by preparing thin layer graphene oxide tablets (GO-Tabs) utilizing a mixture of graphene oxide and polyethylene glycol on a polyethylene substrate. The GO-Tabs were used for extraction and concentration of omeprazole (OME) in human saliva samples. The determination of OME was carried out using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) under gradient LC conditions and in the positive ion mode (ESI+) with mass transitions of m/z 346.3 -> 198.0 for OME and m/z 369.98 -> 252.0 for the internal standard. Standard calibration for the saliva samples was in the range of 2.0-2000 nmol L-1. Limits of detection and quantification were 0.05 and 2.0 nmol L-1, respectively. Method validation showed good method accuracy and precision; the inter-day precision values ranged from 5.7 to 8.3 (%RSD), and the accuracy of determinations varied from -11.8% to 13.3% (% deviation from nominal values). The extraction recovery was 60%, and GO-Tabs could be re-used for more than ten extractions without deterioration in recovery. In this study, the determination of OME in real human saliva samples using GO-Tab extraction was validated.

Abstract [en]

Nanocomposite functionalized membranes were synthesized using surface functionalized mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MCM-NH2 or MCM-PEI) cross-linked to a modified polyacrylonitrile (mPAN) nanofibrous substrate for the removal of 1 mg L-1 of As(V); a concentration much higher than what has been reported for underground water in Argentina. Adsorption studies were carried out in batch mode at pH 8 with nanoparticles in colloidal form, as well as the nanoparticles supported on the modified PAN membranes (mPAN/MCM-NH2 and mPAN/MCM-PEI). Results indicate a twenty-fold improvement in As(V) adsorption with supported nanoparticles (nanocomposite membranes) as opposed to their colloidal form. The adsorption efficiency could be further enhanced by modifying the nanocomposite membrane surface with Fe3+ (mPAN/MCM-NH2-Fe3+ and mPAN/MCM-PEI-Fe3+) which resulted in more than 95% arsenic being removed within the first 15 minutes and a specific arsenic adsorption capacity of 4.61 mg g(-1) and 5.89 mg g(-1) for mPAN/MCM-NH2-Fe3+ and mPAN/MCM-PEI-Fe3+ nanocomposite membranes, respectively. The adsorption characteristics were observed to follow a pseudo-first order behavior. The results suggest that the synthesized materials are excellent for quick and efficient reduction of As(V) concentrations below the WHO guidelines and show promise for future applications.

Abstract [en]

In this work the photocatalytic degradation of pharmaceuticals (Ibuprofen, Cetirizine, and Naproxen) was evaluated using surface modified TiO2 nanoparticles immobilized on polyacrylonitrile/multiwall carbon nanotubes composite nanofibers. The photocatalytic degradation was studied under visible light (0.1 W/cm(2)) irradiation. Comparatively, the photocatalytic degradation of pharmaceuticals using PAN-CNT/TiO2-NH2 composite nanofibers was much more efficient than with PAN/TiO2-NH2 composite nanofibers under visible light irradiation. The results obtained showed that the photocatalytic efficiency of the studied pharmaceuticals is pH dependent in which more than 99% degradation was obtained at pH 2. Complete degradation of IBP, CTZ, and NPX was achieved within 200, 50, and 90 min, respectively under visible light.

Abstract [en]

Background: In this study, the photodegradation of three pharmaceuticals, namely Ibuprofen (IBP), Naproxen (NPX), and Cetirizine (CIZ) in aqueous media was investigated under UV irradiation. The photocatalyst used in this work consists of surface functionalized titanium dioxide (TiO2-NH2) nanoparticles grafted into Polyacrylonitrile (PAN)/multi-walled carbon nanotube composite nanofibers. Surface modification of the fabricated composite nanofibers was illustrated using XRD, FTIR, and SEM analyses. Results: Sets of experiments were performed to study the effect of pharmaceuticals initial concentration (5-50 mg/L), solution pH (2-9), and irradiation time on the degradation efficiency. The results demonstrated that more than 99% degradation efficiency was obtained for IBP, CIZ, and NPX within 120, 40, and 25 min, respectively. Conclusions: Comparatively, the photocatalytic degradation of pharmaceuticals using PAN-CNT/TiO2-NH2 composite nanofibers was much more efficient than with PAN/TiO2-NH2 composite nanofibers.

Abstract [en]

Surface coated magnetite nanoparticles (Fe3O4 NPs) with 3-mercaptopropionic acid were immobilized on amidoximated polyacrilonitrile (APAN) nanofibers using electrospinning followed by crosslinking. The prepared composite nanofibers were characterized with Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), and Fourier Transform Infrared analysis (FTIR). The composite nanofiber was evaluated for the removal of indigo carmine dye from aqueous solutions. The effects of contact time, initial dye concentration, solution pH and adsorption equilibrium isotherms were studied. The adsorption of indigo carmine was found to be greatly affected by solution pH. The maximum loading capacity was determined to be 154.5 mg g(-1) at pH = 5. The experimental kinetic data were fitted well using a pseudo-first order model. The adsorption isotherm studies showed that the adsorption of indigo carmine fits well with the Langmuir model. The reuse of the composite nanofiber was also investigated in which more than 90% of indigo carmine was recovered in 5 min. The results of stability studies showed that the adsorption efficiency can remain almost constant (90%) after five consecutive adsorption/desorption cycles.

Abstract [en]

This work describes the enhanced mechanical properties of the composite nanofibers and the photodegradation of two organic dyes using PAN/CNTs under UV irradiation at different volume concentration (0.05, 0.1, 0.2, and 0.3 wt.%). The composite nanofibers was performed with polyacrylonitrile (PAN), and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) by electrospinning process. The composite nanofibers structure and morphology is characterized by XRD, FTIR, SEM, and TEM. The result indicates that with increasing CNTs content, the mechanical properties of the composite nanofibers was enhanced, and became more elastic, and the elastic modulus increased drastically. The results of mechanical properties exhibit improvements in tensile strengths, and elastic modulus by 38% and 84% respectively, at only 0.05 wt.% CNTs. Moreover, photocatalytic degradation performance in short time and low power intensity was achieved comparison to earlier reports.

Graphene oxide (GO) was synthesized and used as a coagulant of rare earth elements (REEs) from aqueous solution. Stability and adsorption capacities were exhibited for target REEs such as La(III), Nd(III), Gd(III), and Y(III). The parameters influencing the adsorption capacity of the target species including contact time, pH, initial concentration, and temperature were optimized. The adsorption kinetics and thermodynamics were studied. The method showed quantitative recovery (99%) upon desorption using HNO3 acid (0.1 M) after a short contact time (15 min).

Abstract [en]

A novel composites nanofiber was synthesized based on PAN-CNT/TiO2-NH2 nanofibers using electrospinning technique followed by chemical modification of TiO2 NPs. PAN-CNT/TiO2-NH2 nanofiber were characterized by XRD, FTIR, SEM, and TEM. The effects of various experimental parameters such as initial concentration, contact time, and solution pH on As removal were investigated. The maximum adsorption capacity at pH 2 for As(III) and As(V) is 251 mg/g and 249 mg/g, respectively, which is much higher than most of the reported adsorbents. The adsorption equilibrium reached within 20 and 60 min as the initial solution concentration increased from 10 to 100 mg/L, and the data fitted well using the linear and nonlinear pseudo first and second order model. Isotherm data fitted well to the linear and nonlinear Langmuir, Freundlich, and Redlich-Peterson isotherm adsorption model. Desorption results showed that the adsorption capacity can remain up to 70% after 5 times usage. This work provides a simple and an efficient method for removing arsenic from aqueous solution.

Abstract [en]

In this work we report a highly efficient photocatalytic reduction of Cr(VI) based on PAN-CNT/TiO2-NH2 composite nanofibers fabricated by using electrospinning technique followed by chemical crosslinking of surface modified TiO2 NPs functionalized with amino group. The structure and morphology of the fabricated composite nanofibers were characterized by FTIR, SEM, TEM, TGA, and XPS. The results indicate that the composite nanofibers possess excellent photoreduction performance for Cr(VI) under visible light (125 W) after 30 min, which is much faster than previous reports. The effects of various experimental parameters such as catalyst dose, irradiation time, initial concentration of Cr(VI), and pH on the photoreduction efficiency of Cr(VI) were investigated. The highest photoreduction efficiency of Cr (VI) was obtained at low acidity and low amount of TiO2/CNT photocatalyst. The kinetic experimental data was attained and fitted well with a pseudo-first-order model. The UV–vis spectrophotometer and XPS analyses proved that chromate Cr(VI) was reduced to Cr(III). In addition, it can be concluded that the addition of the phenol enhances the photocatalytic reduction of Cr(VI). Furthermore, the photoreduction mechanism has also been discussed. Finally, the fabricated composite nanofibers were found to be stable after at least five regeneration cycles.
