1. Preparation of polyethersulfone membrane coated by a nanocomposite structure

Farhad Heidary

Volume 10, Issue 2 , Spring 2020, Pages 51-57

Abstract
  Nanocomposite membranes were prepared by coating a porous Polyethersulfone (PES) support containing 8-hydroxyquinoline (as complexing agent) with poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA)/Fe3O4 nanocomposite solution. The prepared membranes were applied for removal of Zn(II) ions from water. The effect of membrane ...  Read More

2. One-pot synthesis of 1,2,4,5-tetrasubstituted Imidazoles using BiFeO3

Roya Nazarpour; Behnam Amiri

Volume 10, Issue 2 , Spring 2020, Pages 58-66

Abstract
  The BiFeO3 perovskite-type oxide was synthesized using the citrate gel method and the catalytic activity of the BiFeO3 was assessed in a multicomponent reaction of benzil, an aromatic aldehyde, and an amine in the presence of ammonium acetate under solvent-free conditions. The physical and chemical properties ...  Read More

3. Theoretical investigation of 4-(2,3-dihydro[3,4-6][1,4][dioxin-5-yl) aniline copolymer

Forough Kalantari Fotooh; Mohammad Reza Nateghi; Mohsen Mohammadi

Volume 10, Issue 2 , Spring 2020, Pages 67-74

Abstract
  Poly 4-(2,3-dihydro[3,4-6][1,4][dioxin-5-yl) aniline (EDOT-Ani) is an interesting novel monomer which can be used as an electrode in fabrication of dye synthesized solar cells. In this paper a DFT method with B3LYP/6-31G* level of theory was used for investigating the structural, electronic and optical ...  Read More

4. Theoretical study of oxidation of acetonitrile with nitrogen trioxide and formation of secondary organic aerosol

Morteza Alihosseini; Morteza vahedpour; Mahsa Yousefian

Volume 10, Issue 2 , Spring 2020, Pages 75-81

Abstract
  This theoretical study investigated the oxidation reaction mechanism of acetonitrile as a volatileorganic compound by nitrogen trioxide in formation of secondary organic aerosol. The B3LYP level with 6-311++G (3df, 3pd) basis set was used to optimize geometries of reactants, products, and transition ...  Read More

5. Investigation of hydrogen adsorption and storage on G-C3N4: fuel cell application

Siroos Rostami; Ali Nakhaei Pour; Hasan Oliaei Torshizi

Volume 10, Issue 2 , Spring 2020, Pages 82-86

Abstract
  In this paper we experimentally worked on hydrogen storage on G-C3N4 in ambient temperature and 20 bar pressure. Also we determined thermodynamical properties of hydrogen adsorption. We synthesized pure G-C3N4 by Urea Precursor and it proved by XRD and FT-IR spectra. Results show that the pure G-C3N4 ...  Read More

6. Synthesis of n-type and p-type CuInS2 thin films via simple SILAR method

Hossein Alehdaghia; Mohammad Zirak

Volume 10, Issue 2 , Spring 2020, Pages 87-93

Abstract
  Among various CuInS2-rerlated heterojunctions, it is expected that CIS-based p−n junctions are high-performance photo-active electrodes. Herein, both n-type and p-type CuInS2 thin films were synthesized via facile successive ion layer adsorption and reaction (SILAR) method, using aqueous (A-CIS) ...  Read More
