Investigation of novel electrode materials for electrochemically-based remediation of high- and low-level mixed wastes in the DOE complex. 1998 annual progress report( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the key issues that must be solved to achieve a successful remediation of the high level liquid wastes (HLW) at the Hanford and at Savannah River sites is the removal of the significant quantities of nitrate and nitrite in the existing liquid waste streams that are presently on these sites in the DOE complex. One method of waste stream remediation is electrochemical oxidation, which is an in-situ method that has been well-documented to have significant advantages in many areas with respect to pump-and-treat approaches to waste remediation. There are, however, significant aspects of the electrochemical oxidation process that need to be addressed from a basic research viewpoint. The research to be performed under this proposal will investigate new materials, initially based on degenerately-doped titanias, for use in the electrochemical degradation of organics and nitrogen-containing compounds in sites of concern to the DOE remediation effort. This report summarizes work after 1.5 years of a 3-year project. Progress has been made in two main areas of work. First, significant effort has been made in synthesis and characterization of new anode materials for electrochemical remediation purposes. Secondly, these materials have also been characterized as photoanodes for photoelectrochemical activity and remediation applications. Due to space limitations, only work in the former area is summarized here but information on the latter is of course available upon request from the PI''s."
Investigation of novel electrode materials for electrochemically based remediation of high and low-level mixed wastes in the DOE complex. 1997 annual progress report( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work is focused on the preparation of novel electrode materials for the degradation of toxic wastes in the DOE complex. One of the goals of this work is to characterize whether it is possible to use controlled doping of TiO₂ with species such as Nb in order to create new electrode materials that will facilitate the destruction of undesirable organics and inorganics, without light and instead only with an applied potential, in the waste tanks at the DOE sites. In the first part of this project, the authors have therefore spent an extensive amount of effort characterizing, as a baseline, the chemical and electrochemical behavior of TiO₂ itself, so that they can make robust comparisons to the behavior of the Nb-doped systems in subsequent work on this project. The preparation of these electrode films is being performed by Marc Anderson at Wisconsin, who is preparing a number of different stoichiometries, grain sizes, etc. for investigation of their electrochemical properties by the Lewis group at Caltech. First they report on the progress of the electrode preparation work, and then they describe progress on the electrochemical work."
TiO₂ permselective membranes( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hydrogen permselective membranes were synthesized by chemical vapor deposition of TiO₂ or SiO₂ layers within the pores of Vycor tubes used as supports. The reaction mechanism and kinetics of TiO₂ or SiO₂ formation were investigated in terms of the heterogeneous reactions between gaseous TiCl₄ or SiCl₄ with hydroxyl groups in the solid and between gaseous H₂O and chloride groups in the solid. The growth of the oxide layers can be characterized as a polymerization proceeding by alternating reactions of the gaseous reactants with groups on the solid surface. In addition, condensation reactions occur between surface chloride groups and nearby hydroxyl groups or two neighboring hydroxyl groups, that contribute to the overall mechanism of the oxide layer formation. For the case of TiO₂ deposition, chlorination of the surface hydroxyl groups seems to be the rate-limiting step in the growth of the deposit layer
Preparation of H₂-permselective silica membranes by alternating reactant deposition. Quarterly progress report, September 1, 1993--December 31, 1993( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thin SiO₂ layers were deposited on the surface of porous Vycor glass by alternating vapor phase reaction with SiCl₄ and H₂O. The membranes prepared by this technique had H₂ permeance of 0.3--0.4 cm³ (STP)/(min·cm²·atm) and H₂:N₂ selectivity of 500--1000 at 600°C. The SiCl₄ dosage at each silylation cycle, the concentration of initial surface -OH groups, and the reaction temperature influence significantly the deposit layer thickness- After two weeks of heating at 550°C under 3 atmospheres of water vapor, the membrane H₂ permeance decreased by about 20%, and the selectivity increased to more than 2000. The membrane properties after this hydrothermal treatment are superior to those of membranes prepared earlier by one-sided (steady flow) deposition. A simple model incorporating diffusion and surface reaction was used to study the effect of various parameters on the formation of the deposit layer

[Electron transfer rates at semiconductor/liquid interfaces]. Progress report( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Work has focused on several aspects of the fundamental chemistry and physics semiconductor/liquid junction behavior. These projects have been directed primarily towards GaAs/liquid contacts, because GaAs/liquid systems provide high energy conversion efficiencies and offer an opportunity to gain mechanistic understanding of the factors that are important to control in an efficient photoelectrochemical energy conversion system

Investigations into the enzymology and biotechnology of the hyperthermophilic carboxypeptidase (PfuCP) from the Archaeon Pyrococcus furiosus by Timothy C Cheng( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two forms of the enzyme were observed; one which retains stabilizing metal(s) that confer structural thermostability and a remarkable retention of activity to the dimer, and another demetallated form which has lost stability with regards to both dimeric integrity and activity. Difficulties in expressing a properly folded recombinant necessitated refolding of the expressed clone from inclusion bodies and further suggest that in vivo the stabilizing metal(s) may participate in folding a metastable enzyme

Models of the oxygen-evolving complex of photosystem II by Jacob Steven Kanady( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the five chapters that follow, I delineate my efforts over the last five years to synthesize structurally and chemically relevant models of the Oxygen Evolving Complex (OEC) of Photosystem II. The OEC is nature's only water oxidation catalyst, in that it forms the dioxygen in our atmosphere necessary for oxygenic life. Therefore understanding its structure and function is of deep fundamental interest and could provide design elements for artificial photosynthesis and manmade water oxidation catalysts. Synthetic endeavors towards OEC mimics have been an active area of research since the mid 1970s and have mutually evolved alongside biochemical and spectroscopic studies, affording ever-refined proposals for the structure of the OEC and the mechanism of water oxidation. This research has culminated in the most recent proposal: a low symmetry Mn₄CaO₅ cluster with a distorted Mn₃CaO₄ cubane bridged to a fourth, dangling Mn
