Songmin Shang; Enling Hu; Xiao-ming Tao; Shou-xiang Jiang; Ka-lok Chiu; Yee Ting Chong

Volume 8, Issue 8 , August 2017, Pages 841-846

Abstract
  Reactive dyeing of cotton generates large volume of wastewater containing residue dye contaminants. In order to reduce adverse impacts to the environment, the waste effluents must be reclaimed through appropriate processes before charging to the natural water bodies. In this study, carbon aerogel materials, ...  Read More

5. Spinel NiCo2O4 and single walled carbon nanotube nanocomposites for high performance supercapacitor application

7. Experimental study of 3D-printable biocomposite of [HA/PMMA/Sericin] materials  

Alva E. Tontowi; Devita Anggraeni; Henry TSSG Saragih; Kristiani P.N. Raharjo; Putri Utami

Volume 8, Issue 8 , August 2017, Pages 857-861

Abstract
  In the previous study, a biocomposite material of [HA/Bioplastic/Sericin] was developed as a printable material. The highest strength was only 3.89 MPa which was achieved by the composite with 60/40 ratio of HA/Bioplastic and additional sericin of 0.3%w/w of HA. The present of sericin within the biocomposite ...  Read More

8. Ligand coordination effects on gallium nanocluster reactivity

David J. Henry

Volume 8, Issue 8 , August 2017, Pages 862-865

Abstract
  Stabilisation and modulation of nanocluster reactivity are key elements for the development of these materials as versatile and selective catalysts. This study presents a preliminary investigation of the interaction of ligands with a gallium nanocluster (Ga13). The amphoteric nature of Ga13 means that ...  Read More

9. New polycrystalline MC-reinforced nickel-based superalloys for use at elevated temperatures (T > 1100°C)

Patrice Berthod

Volume 8, Issue 8 , August 2017, Pages 866-872

Abstract
  In some high temperature applications, there is a constant need of refractory alloys able to resist oxidation by hot gases, hot corrosion by various melts and creep deformation. The best superalloys are currently the g/g’ nickel-based single crystals but they cannot be exposed to 1200°C and ...  Read More
