Injection molding is one of the most important processing techniques by which blends are fabricated into plastic parts; the morphological anisotropy characteristic of injection-molded blends is primarily the result of orientation of phases along the complex melt flow lines during mold filling, which include the 'fountain flow' pattern at the melt front. In this case, PLA (poly(lactic acid)) and PC (polycarbonate) blend is highly immiscible and phase separated during injection molding procedure. The morphology of injection-molded blends of PC/PLA has been examined across different composition range. A very thin region of material at the mould surface experiences elongational flow at the front of the fountain flow pattern and creates an oriented surface skin. A transition occurred between PC/PLA=75/25 and 50/50 wt% compositions from the bead-and-string structure with some interconnections to a coalesced, stratified morphology near the edge; while in the centre, the morphology changed from a dispersion of PLA particles to thick coalesced PC matrix that created regions where PC was co-continuous with PC. The PC-rich blends had a conventional blend morphology with PC domains dispersed in PC. The structure-properties relationship is discussed on the basis of transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and UV-Vis analysis. Source

The crystal structures of (2-aza-2-benzyloxycarbonylmethyl-5,10,15,20- tetraphenyl-21-carbaporphyrinato-N,N′,N″)platinum(II) [Pt(2-NCH 2COOCH2C6H5NCTPP); 4], (2-aza-2-p-cyanobenzyl-5,10,15,20-tetraphenyl-21-carbaporphyrinato-N,N′, N″)platinum(II) [Pt(2-NCH2-p-C6H4- CNNCTPP); 5] and (2-aza-2-p-trifluoromethylbenzyl-5,10,15,20-tetraphenyl-21- carbaporphyrinato-N,N′,N″)platinum(II) [Pt(2-NCH2-p- C6H4-CF3NCTPP); 6] have been established. The coordination sphere around Pt2+ ion in 4-6 is distorted square planar (DSP). The Pt-C(17) bonds are 1.947(5) Å (4), 1.965(6) Å (5) and 1.958(5) Å (6) and the corresponding one-bond coupling constants 1J[Pt-C(17)] are 990 Hz (4), 980 Hz (5) and 980 Hz (6). The shape of 195Pt satellite lines in 1H spectra of H(19) vary with the magnetic field owing to CSA relaxation of the 195Pt in 4-6. The 13C [C(19)] and 1H [H(19)] chemical shifts of N +CH(Ar) fragment at 20 C in CDCl3 are separately located at 156.2 ± 0.7 ppm and 8.01 ± 0.08 ppm for the iminium ion of dipolar form in complexes 4-6. The X-ray diffraction data of N(4)-C(19) = 1.320 ± 0.015 Å indicate the existence of dipolar form for 4-6. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source

The crystal structures of (2-aza-2-benzyloxycarbonylmethyl-5,10,15,20- tetraphenyl-21-carbaporphyrinato-N,N', N'')nickel(II) [Ni(2-NCH 2COOCH2C6H5NCTPP); 5], (2-aza-2-benzyloxycarbonylmethyl-5,10,15,20-tetraphenyl-21-carbaporphyrinato-N, N',N'')palladium(II) toluene solvate [Pd(2-NCH2COOCH 2C6H5NCTPP)·C6H 5CH3; 6·C6H5CH3] and bromo(2-aza-2-benzyloxycarbonylmethyl-5,10,15,20-tetraphenyl-21- carbaporphyrinato-N,N',N'')manganese(III) ethyl acetate solvate [Mn(2-NCH 2COOCH2C6H5NCTPP)Br·EtOAc; 7·EtOAc] have been established. The coordination sphere around the Ni2+ ion in 5 (or Pd2+ ion in 6·C6H 5CH3) is distorted square planar (DSP), whereas for Mn3+ in 7·EtOAc, it is square-based pyramidal with the Br atom lying in the axial site. The g value of 10.98 measured from the parallel polarization of the X-band ESR spectrum at 4 K is consistent with a high spin mononuclear manganese(III) centre (S = 2) in 7. The magnitude of the axial (D) zero-field splitting (ZFS) for the mononuclear Mn(III) centre in 7 was determined to be approximately 0.52 cm-1 by paramagnetic susceptibility measurements. The 13C [C(19)] and 1H [H(19)] chemical shifts of the N+CH(Ar) fragment at 20°C in CDCl3 are located at δ 152.5 ± 0.5 and 8.21 ± 0.04 ppm respectively for the iminium ion of the dipolar form in complexes 5-7. From the X-ray diffraction data, the N(4)-C(19) bond length of 1.312 ± 0.013 Å indicates the existence of the dipolar form for 5-7. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source

This work studied the catalyst activity and stability of ion-exchanged zeolites during the oxidation of dimethyl sulfide (DMS) in the presence of ozone. Ozone was used as an oxidant to assess the oxidation capability of Ag/ZSM-5, Mn/ZSM-5 and Ag-Mn/ZSM-5 of DMS at both room temperature and 130 °C. Ion-exchange with silver ions (Ag+) strengthened the adsorption of DMS, resulting in an increased oxidation capacity for DMS. Furthermore, the introduction of manganese ions (Mn2+) strengthened the oxidation capability of DMS, thus enhancing the selectivity of SO 2 obtained from the oxidation and reducing the degradation of activity because the pores of the catalyst were blocked by the oxidation products, such as dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and dimethyl sulfone (DMSO 2). Ag-Mn/ZSM-5 demonstrated a 100% conversion of DMS; not only SO2 but also H2SO3 and H2SO 4 were detected at a high GHSV (90,000 h-1) and low reaction temperature (130 °C). The SO2 adsorption curve and temperature-programmed desorption (TPD) showed that the single metal ion-exchanged zeolite had a weak adsorption capability for SO2 at room temperature, whereas the bi-metal ion-exchanged zeolite had an excellent adsorption capability towards SO2; it could convert SO2 into H2SO3 and could convert oxidized SO2 into H2SO4 in gas phase at room temperature. © 2010 Published by Elsevier B.V.

Removal of low-concentration sulfide in clean rooms is important in the semiconductor industry. In dry conditions, silver-manganese exchanged Y zeolite (Ag-Mn/Na-Y) has high removal efficiency and high saturation adsorption capacity towards dimethylsulfide (DMS). However, the removal efficiency of DMS on Ag-Mn/Na-Y decreases with increasing water concentration in inlet gas at room temperature and normal pressure. In high humidity conditions, the removal efficiency and saturation adsorption capacity of DMS is high for silver-manganese exchanged ZSM zeolite (Ag-Mn/ZSM-5). In this paper, the influence of water concentration on the removal efficiency of DMS on Ag-Mn/zeolites was examined. The variations of functional group detected in FT-IR spectroscopy and temperature programmed desorption (TPD) confirm that water molecules influence the ability of DMS adsorption by Ag-Mn/zeolites.
