In this work, it is proposed a new strategy to improve the dispersion of inorganic fillers in polymeric matrices by producing surface carbon nanostructures. Clay/carbon nanofibers particles were prepared and used as fillers to improve the mechanical and thermal properties of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). Thermogravimetry (TG), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), elemental analyses, Raman, X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) showed that chemical vapor deposition (CVD) with ethanol at different temperatures, i.e. 700, 800 and 900 °C with and without Fe catalyst, can be...

An imprinted amino-functionalized silica gel material was prepared by surface molecular imprinting technique combined with a sol-gel process on the supporter of activated silica gel and used as a solid-phase extraction for the extraction and determination of methyldopa (MTD). Non-imprinted silica adsorbent was synthesized without the addition of MTD using the same process. MTD-imprinted and non-imprinted silica adsorbents were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and the static adsorption experiments. The prepared MTD-imprinted silica sorbent demonstrated high ...

This paper proposes a method for chicken tissues preparation using tetramethylammonium hydroxide (TMAH) for Pb determination by graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry employing multivariate approaches. Combining Raman spectroscopy with scanning electron microscopy coupled to energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy to monitor the solubilization process it was possible to show that TMAH acts in the solubilization of proteins, amino acids and lipids. Besides, this investigation showed that the small residual masses of samples have organic and inorganic compounds. Accuracy tests indicated that such residues have not inte...

In this work, thermal properties and kinetics of Al-nanoparticles/ α -MnO2 nanorods thermite were reported. The α -MnO2 nanorods were synthesized using a hydrothermal method and were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) and X-ray photoelectron spectra (XPS), then combined with Al nanoparticles based on the ultrasonic mixing method to prepare the nanostructure thermite. Besides, both pure components and mixture were characterized by field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) to observe their morphologies and structures. Subsequently, the thermal properties of Al/ α -MnO2 nanostructure ...
