Novel metal-carbon nanomaterials: A review on covetics

Mete Bakir; Iwona Jasiuk

Volume 8, Issue 9 , September 2017, Pages 884-890


  Covetics are a novel class of metal-carbon nanomaterials. The covetics are fabricated using a conventional induction furnace wherein an electric current is applied into an activated carbon infused molten metal medium. In situ generated arc discharge induces a chemical conversion reaction where the amorphous ...  Read More

Volume 8, Issue 9 , September 2017, Pages 905-909


  Graphene oxide (GO) is the high-biocompatible, good aqueous dispersible and low-cost material. Fluorescence quenching and adsorption capacity of GO, different affinity of single-stranded and double-stranded DNA molecules to GO are used to design GO-based fluorescent sensors to detect complementary single ...  Read More

Effect of hafnium addition on wear resistance of zinc-aluminum 5 alloy: A three-dimensional presentation  

Adnan I. O. Zaid; Ahmad O. Mostafa

Volume 8, Issue 9 , September 2017, Pages 910-915


  ZAMAK 5 alloy is known to solidify in a large grain dendritic structure, which negatively affects its mechanical properties and surface quality. It is therefore of prime importance to reduce its grain size in order to overcome these drawbacks. In this paper, the effect of addition of hafnium (Hf) on ...  Read More
