Now available on Fast Track: Fabricating nano-sized BiVO4/InVO4/g-C3N4 photocatalysts for efficient degradation of Acid Blue 92 azo dye

Posted on 15. June, 2018.

Photocatalysis using semiconductors has received considerable interest in both the scientific and engineering areas. Especially, metal oxide semiconductor photocatalysts have been widely studied for environmental applications such as cleaning of air and the removal of hazardous compounds from wastewater. Metal vanadates are a notable category of inorganic nanomaterials that have received attention due to their wide applications and many researchers has been interested in the synthesis of metal vanadates of manganese, iron, etc.

Transformation of levofloxacin during water chlorination

Posted on 20. December, 2012.

Information on chlorine reaction with pharmaceutical compounds is scarce. An investigation reported in Progress in Reaction Kinetics and Mechanism quantifies the kinetics for reactions of levofloxacin with free available chlorine and also identifies associated transformation, mechanisms, degradation products, and evaluates thermodynamic activation parameters relevant to chlorine based municipal waste water and drinking water disinfection processes.

Free Energies of Electron Transfer Reactions

Posted on 20. September, 2012.

Determination of the reaction and reorganization free energies that control the rate of electron transfer are considered in Progress in Reaction Kinetics and Mechanism. The main difficulty is the lack of knowledge of the properties in the interfacial region where the reaction occurs. This review deals with procedures for obtaining these two free energies from experimental data corresponding to electron transfer reactions under restricted geometry conditions in which one or both reactants are bound to some receptor such as micelles, cyclodextrins, and polymers.

Radiation effects on zeolite nanomaterials - some potential implications for cleaning liquid nuclear waste and for enhanced radioactive decontamination

Posted on 22. May, 2012.

Zeolites are used to help clean liquid wastes from nuclear power plants or to enhance radioactive decontamination. Progress in Reaction Kinetics and Mechanism presents results from the implantation of high energy positive muons in samples of cation-exchanged zeolite X  which give an insight into the long-term effects on zeolites of their exposure to ionising radiation.

Radiolabelling measurements of free radicals derived from aromatic volatile organic compounds adsorbed in zeolite nanomaterials to and above saturation loadings

Posted on 10. November, 2011.

Benzene, para-xylene and mesitylene were adsorbed into silicalite, Na – mordenite, Na – ZSM5 and Li –X zeolites, and studied using the longitudinal field muon spin relaxation (LF-mSRx) technique.

Kinetic modelling using PAN

Posted on 28. October, 2011.

A kinetic model described in the latest issue of Progress in Reaction Kinetics and Mechanism expresses the oxidation of maleic acid in solution using a novel modified PAN catalyst/hydrogen peroxide system. This model provides a superior fit to the experimental data compared to kinetic constants from the literature.

Permanganate oxidation of GABA

Posted on 8. July, 2011.

Permanganate oxidation is featured heavily in Progress in Reaction Kinetics and Mechanism 36(2). The permanganate oxidation of GABA is a novel method for the synthesis of a valuable pyrrolidone skeleton. Using spectrophotometrical analysis, evidence is also given for delayed autocatalytic behaviour in the permangatae-oxidative catalysed condensation reaction of L-proline to a diketopiperazine.
