The corrosion of zinc in phosphoric acid containing hexamine has been studied at different acid concentrations, inhibitor concentration and temperatures. Corrosion increases with the concentration of acid and the temperature. The inhibition efficiency (IE) of hexamine increases with the concentration of inhibitor. The IE decreases with the increase in concentration of acid. As temperature increases, percentage of inhibition decreases. The plot of log (θ/1-θ) versus log C results in a straight line suggest that the inhibitors cover both the anodic and cathodic regions through general adsorption following Longmuir isotherm. Galvenostatic polarization curves show polarization of both anodes as well as cathodes. Source

A classical rigid-body dynamics model is used for study of Coulomb reorientation effect on the fusion dynamics. Model calculations show that barrier parameters depend on the initial orientations and also on the collision energy. Calculated fusion cross sections for 24Mg+208Pb and 16O+154Sm reactions show that reorientation effect is more pronounced in the case of 24Mg+208Pb reaction which involves a lighter deformed nucleus. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.

The textile dyeing industry consumes large quantities of water and produces large volumes of wastewater from different processes in dyeing and finishing processes. The low-cost, easily available naturally prepared coagulants like Surjana seed powder (SSP), Maize seed powder (MSP) and Chitosan as an ideal alternative to recent expensive coagulant methods for Congo Red (CR) dye removal has been investigated in this study. Various process parameters like pH, coagulant dose, flocculation time and temperature and also its optimization were exploited. The maximum percentage CR removal was found to be 98.0, 94.5 and 89.4 for SSP, Chitosan and MSP, respectively, at pH 4.0, coagulant dose of 25. mg/l, flocculation time 60. min and temperature of 340. K. The Sludge Volume Index (SVI) and turbidity were calculated for these parameters including process optimization. SSP found more preferable for CR removal and Chitosan was a better coagulant, which corresponds to SVI than the other coagulants investigated. © 2011. Source

The present investigation describes adsorption of crystal violet dye from its aqueous solution onto tamarind (Tamarindus indica) fruit shell powder. Initial concentration, agitation speed and pH with various temperature have been studied, in which pH was found to be most effective. The adsorption data were mathematically analyzed using adsorption isotherm like Freundlich and Langmuir isotherm to study adsorption mechanism of crystal violet onto this seed powder. Freundlich isotherm was found to be most applicable. The equilibrium data were applied to intra-particle diffusion and adsorption kinetics. The reaction was found to be pseudo second order. Source

The wastewater generated by the textile industry is rated as the most polluting among all industrial sectors considering both volumes discharged and effluent composition. Present investigation intended for COD and color removal from textile wastewater using naturally prepared coagulants i.e. Surjana Seed Powder (SSP), Maize Seed Powder (MSP) and Chitosan. Effect of coagulant dose, flocculation time and temperature has been studied. The Sludge Volume Index (SVI) and turbidity were examined for various effects. SSP was more effective than Chitosan and MSP for the removal of COD and color and also, Chitosan was more efficient than SSP and MSP considering SVI and turbidity. Maximum percentage reduction corresponds to 75.6 and 62.8 was obtained for removal of COD and color respectively, using SSP. © 2013 Global NEST Printed in Greece. All rights reserved. Source
