  • A terahertz spectroscopic study of chitosan-based bionanocomposites
           containing clay nanoparticles
    • Abstract: Abstract Dielectric properties of bionanocomposites resulting from regulated self-organization of chitosan and nanoparticles of synthetic saponite clay have been investigated by terahertz pulsed spectroscopy. Spectral characteristics of the composites considered in correlation with their structural features, which have been characterized by atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscopy, depend on the concentration ratio of the components. The study of the effect of temperature on terahertz absorption spectra has led to the conclusion that hydrogen bonding may be involved in the formation of the bionanocomposites.

  • Structural and electrosurface characteristics of titanium dioxide xerogel
           prepared by the sol–gel method
    • Abstract: Abstract Stable highly concentrated TiO2 sol has been synthesized using binary titanyl ammonium sulfate monohydrate, (NH4)2TiO(SO4)2 · H2O. Treatment of the sol with an ammonia solution has yielded a stable hydrogel, which, after being dried, is transformed into a TiO2 xerogel. Study of the structure-related sorption and crystalline-chemical properties of the synthesized xerogel has shown that it represents a semicrystalline micro/mesoporous material with a rather developed specific surface area (S sp = 120 m2/g). According to potentiometric titration data, the point of zero charge (PZC) of this material is located at pH 3.9. Measurements of the electrophoretic mobility (by microelectrophoresis) of TiO2 xerogel particles in solutions of HCl, NaOH, and salts of mono-, bi-, and trivalent cations have shown that (1) the isoelectric point (IEP) of the particles lies in the vicinity of pH 6.2, i.e., at a much higher pH than that for PZC; (2) the presence of increasing amounts of 1: 1 and 2: 1 electrolytes causes a gradual and a dramatic reduction in the ζ potential of the particles, respectively; and (3), in the presence of an electrolyte with a trivalent counterion, the surface charge is reversed. The behavior of TiO2 xerogel in an electric field is similar to that of lyophobic particles, with the difference that there is no maximum in the ζ potential versus 1: 1 electrolyte concentration dependence and the measured IEP of the xerogel is much higher than its PZC. Possible reasons for this discrepancy have been discussed.

  • Simulation of electrical percolation in disperse systems at a small
           difference between specific conductivities of components
    • Abstract: Abstract The possibility of development of electrical percolation upon variations in the contents of components in a disperse system has been studied in terms of Bruggeman’s ideas of an effective medium and the continual model of the electrical conductivity of composite materials. The case of a small difference between the specific conductivities of a dispersed phase K m and a dispersion medium K d has been considered. It has been shown that the dependence of electrical conductivity K of a disperse system on volume fraction p of a wellconducting component may exhibit an inflection in the vicinity of the p* value, which depends on the K m/K d ratio. Different methods for determining the p* value have been described. At low ratios between the conductivities of a dispersed phase and a dispersion medium, the inflection is very weakly pronounced. However, the representation of the K(p) dependences in semilog coordinated substantially facilitates its identification.

  • A study of the mechanism for ultrafiltration isolation of sodium
           lignosulfonate from aqueous solutions with track membranes
    • Abstract: Abstract Ultrafiltration of aqueous sodium lignosulfonate solutions through track membranes with 30-nm pores has been studied. Membrane selectivity has been investigated as depending on concentrations of sodium lignosulfonate (10, 20, 50, and 100 mg/dm3) and NaCl electrolyte (10–3, 10–2, and 10–1 M). Ultrafiltration of lignosulfonate solutions has been shown to be associated with the “charge-related” mechanism of membrane selective permeability. Membrane selectivity decreases with a rise in the concentrations of lignosulfonate and NaCl, as well as the degree of filtrate extraction.

  • A study of the properties and composition of stearic acid monolayers on an
           aqueous subphase containing cadmium ions
    • Abstract: Abstract Compression isotherms and chemical compositions of stearic acid (HSt) monolayers applied onto an aqueous subphase containing cadmium ions have been studied in a wide pH range. The data obtained have been used to calculate the dependences of surface elasticity E 2.5, change ΔA 2.5 in the surface area per molecule at a constant two-dimensional pressure in the monolayer of 2.5 mN/m, and change Δ ζ in the absolute value of the ζ potential of particles formed from the material of a monolayer collapsed on the surfaces of aqueous solutions with the same compositions on the pH of the subphase. The obtained data are in good agreement with each other and unambiguously attest to the dependences of the surface (E 2.5, ΔA 2.5) and electrosurface (Δ ζ ) characteristics of the monolayers on their chemical composition. This leads us to make the reasonable suggestion that two alternative reactions may occur between cadmium ions and the HSt monolayer with the formation of two salts, CdSt2 and Cd(OH)St.

  • A study of sodium bis(2-ethylhexyl) sulfosuccinate adsorption on silica
           from silver and gold organosols
    • Abstract: Abstract Adsorption of sodium bis(2-ethylhexyl) sulfosuccinate (Aerosol OT) and silver and gold nanoparticles on SiO2 from heptane solutions has been investigated by spectophotometery and CHN analysis. The adsorption isotherm of Aerosol OT is described by the Langmuir equation. Sorption capacity (2.4 × 10–4 mol/g), sorption constant (9.0 m3/mol), and area per Aerosol OT molecule in an adsorption layer (0.83 nm2) have been determined. It has been shown that, at Aerosol OT concentrations lower than 6 × 10–4 M, gold and silver ((0.3–6) × 10–4 M) are simultaneously extracted by 98%; however, they have no effect on the adsorption and determination of the surfactant.

  • Synthesis of hollow magnetic and luminescent bifunctional composite
    • Abstract: Abstract Composite nanoparticles consisted of Au-coating Co superparamagnetic cores and CdSe shells have been synthesized. In-situ reduction and cation exchange methods have been applied in the synthetic process. The composite nanoparticles have been characterized by various methods. Experimental results showed that the oxidation of cobalt nanoparticles might be restrained by a gold shell. The as-prepared nanoconjugates exhibited magnetic and luminescent properties. The bifunctional nanoparticles can be used as detecting agent to analyze tumor cell in vitro and in vivo. We believe that the results could be used as a reference by researchers engaged in both fundamental and applied biomedicine.

  • The effect of pulsed laser radiation on polyelectrolyte capsule shells
           modified with fluorescent dyes
    • Abstract: Abstract Polyelectrolyte capsules containing rhodamine 6G and fluorescein isothiocyanate in their shells are obtained by successive adsorption on spherical microscopic CaCO3 particles followed by the dissolution of the latter. Suspensions of the capsules are irradiated with a laser operating at a wavelength corresponding to the absorption bands of the dyes, and it is shown that shell modification with the selected dyes promotes photosensitized disruption of these structures. The mechanism proposed for this disruption is realized via energy transfer from photoexcited dye molecules to the polymer matrix. Therewith, the dye-modified capsules are disrupted due to their nonuniform local heating.

  • Water vapor clustering in the field of Na + cation inside a nanopore with
           hydrophilic walls. 2. Thermodynamic properties
    • Abstract: Abstract The bicanonical statistical ensemble method has been used to calculate at the molecular level the free energy, entropy, and work of hydration of single-charged sodium cation in a model planar nanopore with structureless hydrophilic walls. The calculations have been performed in terms of a detailed many-particle model of intermolecular interactions calibrated with respect to experimental data on the free energy and enthalpy of the initial reactions of attachment in water vapor. In contrast to chlorine anion, at initial stages of formation, the hydration shell of sodium cation has a loose chain structure, which is reflected in the character of the interaction with pore walls and the behavior of entropy. Under the conditions of weakly hydrophilic walls, the system loses its stability; however, the stability remains preserved in a pore with strongly hydrophilic walls. Hydrophilic walls stabilize the system and shift the onset of hydration toward lower vapor pressures by several orders of magnitude.

  • Microscopic collective dynamics of water
    • Abstract: Abstract Data obtained on microscopic collective excitations in water by molecular dynamics simulation within the framework of the coarse-grained mW-model of the intermolecular interaction potential for water are reported. The calculated spectra of the dynamic structure factor and spectral densities of time correlation functions of longitudinal and transverse currents reveal the existence of propagating collective excitations of longitudinal and transverse polarization in water for a wide range of wavenumbers. The dynamics of fluctuations in the particle number density is analyzed within the framework of a microscopic theory that takes into account only the structural features of a system. The theoretically calculated data on the spectra of dynamic structure factor in a wavenumber range of 0.13–0.48 Å–1 are in good agreement with the results of molecular dynamics simulation.

  • Water vapor clustering in the field of Na + cation inside a nanopore with
           hydrophilic walls. 1. Spatial organization
    • Abstract: Abstract Computer simulation has been employed to study the structure of a hydration shell of a Na+ ion under the conditions of a planar nanopore with structureless hydrophilic walls at 298 K. Intermolecular interactions have been described in terms of a detailed model calibrated with respect to experimental data on the free energy and enthalpy of the initial reactions of vapor molecule attachment to the ion. In the field of hydrophilic walls, the hydration shell is disrupted into an enveloping part and that spread over the surface of the walls. At the final stage of hydration, states with asymmetric distribution of molecules on opposite walls survive and the phenomenon of ion displacement out of its shell is stably reproduced. The orientational molecular order in the system strongly depends on the degree of wall hydrophilicity. The hydration shell of a sodium ion is less stable with respect to disturbances generated by the field of hydrophilic walls than the shell of a chlorine ion is.

  • Molecular dynamics simulation of pressure isotherms for nanofluids
    • Abstract: Abstract Pressure isotherms have been constructed by the molecular dynamics method for nanofluids based on argon and zinc, aluminum, and lithium nanoparticles. Nanoparticle volume concentration is varied from 1 to 10%. Nanoparticles have sizes of 1 or 2 nm. The equation of state has been shown to essentially depend on the volume concentration, size, and material of the particles. Depending on the density of a carrier fluid, the pressure of a nanofluid (at a preset density) may be either higher or lower than the pressure of the basic fluid. On the other hand, the partial pressure of a pseudogas of nanoparticles decreases rapidly with an increase in their sizes (inversely proportional to the cubed particle radius).

  • Mechanochemical synthesis of colloidal sulfur particles in the Na 2 S 2 O
           3 –H 2 (C 4 H 4 O 4 )–Na 2 SO 3 system
    • Abstract: Abstract Elemental sulfur nanoparticles (nanosulfur, S n 0 ) have been obtained in a matrix consisting of sodium sulfite (diluent and a final reaction product) and succinic acid (catalyst) by mechanochemical syntheses via the reaction Na2S2O3 · 5H2O + H2(C4H4O4) + zNa2SO3 = (z + 1)Na2SO3 + H2(C4H4O4) + 5H2O+ S n 0 , at z = 19.6. It has been shown that free nanodispersed sulfur can be obtained by dissolving the matrix in water. The prepared samples have been characterized using a set of physical and physicochemical methods.

  • Determination of effective hydrodynamic diameters of biopolymer molecules
           in high-viscosity mixtures by photon-correlation spectroscopy
    • Abstract: Abstract Using model high-viscosity single-component and mixed systems based on biopolymers with different molecular sizes (poly(ethylene glycol), dextran, and polysucrose) as examples, it is shown by photon-correlation spectroscopy combined with monoand polymodal analysis that solvent viscosity should be used, when calculating the hydrodynamic diameter of molecules in single-component aqueous solutions and mixed solutions of dextran and polysucrose, which have close molecule sizes, by the Stokes–Einstein equation. For mixtures of dextran and polysucrose with polyethylene glycol, the viscosity of the medium, the role of which is played by the poly(ethylene glycol) solution, should be used.

  • Determination of maximum particle size in magnetic fluids
    • Abstract: Abstract Higher-order moments of particle size distribution functions are determined for magnetic fluids from analysis of initial segments of magnetization curves. It is shown that the higher-order moments calculated using approximation of real particle size distributions by the Γ distribution are strongly overestimated. Agreement between the measured and calculated moments can be radically improved by truncating maximum particle size X max. A relation between X max and the parameters of the Γ distribution is proposed taking into account the degree of polydispersity of a magnetic fluid. Namely, the ratio between the maximum and most probable particle diameters is equal to the ratio between the mean-square magnetic moment of a particle and its squared average magnetic moment.

  • Electrosurface properties of single-crystalline detonation nanodiamond
           particles obtained by air annealing of their agglomerates
    • Abstract: Abstract A complex study of electrosurface properties has been performed for single-crystalline detonation nanodiamond particles with sizes of 4–5 nm obtained by air annealing of their agglomerates. FTIR spectroscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy data indicate that the investigated properties result from the presence of two types of ionogenic functional groups on the particle surface, i.e., acidic carboxyl and amphoteric hydroxyl groups. Acid-base potentiometric titration, laser Doppler electrophoresis, and conductometry have been employed to measure the Γ H + (pH) and Γ OH - (pH) adsorption isotherms of potential-determining ions, as well as the pH dependences (in a pH range of 3.5–10.5) of the surface charge density, electrophoretic mobility, and specific surface conductivity of detonation nanodiamond particles in aqueous 0.0001–0.01 M KCl solutions.

  • Approximations of the nucleus size spectrum in nucleation kinetics under
           gradually varied external conditions
    • Abstract: Abstract Several simple approximations have been presented for describing evolution of a condensing system at the stage of nucleation under dynamic conditions. All of them have been compared with the exact numerical solution, and their errors have been determined. All relative errors have been shown to be rather small.

  • Mathematical simulation of atomic hydrogen diffusion transfer through a
           bimetallic membrane
    • Abstract: Abstract Mathematical simulation of atomic hydrogen diffusion transfer through a bimetallic membrane is performed under the approximation of an ideal lattice gas. Analytical expressions are derived for diffusion fluxes at different membrane orientations. The intensity of diffusion transfer of hydrogen atoms through a bimetallic membrane depends on the direction of transfer, provided that they have different solubilities in metal layers. It is shown that the effect of diffusion asymmetry must be taken into account when developing and using bimetallic membranes.

  • Calculation of isosteric heats of molecular gas and vapor adsorption on
           graphite using density functional theory
    • Abstract: Abstract Isosteric heats of hydrogen, nitrogen, and methane adsorption on graphite surface have been calculated and analyzed using the density functional theory. The heats of adsorption have been calculated within wide ranges of pressures and subcritical temperatures. The peaks in the temperature dependences of isosteric heat of adsorption have been found to correlate with the degrees of filling of monolayers during adsorption.
