TiO2:Eu(3+) nanofibers diameters can be tuned by changing the mixed solvent ratio are synthesized via the electrospinning technique. Concentration quenching phenomena and the relationship of the PL intensity ratio I((5)D0-(7)F2)/I((5)D0-(7)F1) with the Eu doping concentration are discussed. Notably, the luminescence intensity is enhanced by about 7.8 fold by coating SiO2 gel layer on the TiO2:Eu(3+) nanofibers, which is successfully performed via a sol-gel process followed by calcination. Furthermore, these fibers are characterized systematically via X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), UV-vis diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (UV-vis DRS), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), and photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy...

  A novel approach toward chemically modified cellulose bearing active chelating Schiff base with hydroxyl group (Cell-Hy) was synthesized. The modified cellulose was examined for its heavy metal ion uptake potential from aqueous solution. The chemical and structural features of the adsorbent were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), solid state 13C-NMR, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), and energy dispersive analysis of X-ray (EDAX) observations. The experimental conditions and adsorption parameters, including pH, initial metal ion concentration, adsorbent dosage, temperature, and contact time were optimized for the removal of Cu(II) and Pb(II) ions...

With cotton fiber growth or maturation, cellulose content in cotton fibers markedly increases. Traditional chemical methods have been developed to determine cellulose content, but it is time-consuming and labor-intensive, mostly owing to the slow hydrolysis process of fiber cellulose components. As one approach, the attenuated total reflection Fourier transform infrared (ATR FT-IR) spectroscopy technique has also been utilized to monitor cotton cellulose formation, by implementing various spectral interpretation strategies of both multivariate principal component analysis (PCA) and 1-, 2- or 3-band/-variable intensity or intensity ratios...

Hydroxyapatite (HA) enriched with strontium and boron ions was synthesized using two different methods: the precipitation method (Sr,B-HAw) and the dry method (Sr,B-HAd). Additionally, for the sake of comparison, the "pure" unsubstituted HA was prepared together with HAs substituted only with one type of a foreign ion. The obtained materials were subjected to physicochemical analysis with the use of various analytical methods, such as powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and solid-state proton nuclear magnetic resonance ((1)H ssNMR)...

Polymer nanocomposite was prepared by the conventional sol-gel method using formaldehyde and resorcinol. The surface of the nanocomposite was functionalized with methylamine. Some of the samples were additionally impregnated with copper(II) chloride. All the materials obtained were characterized by FT-IR spectroscopy, low-temperature nitrogen sorption, thermal and elemental analysis. The samples modified with amine groups had lower surface areas and smaller pore volumes than the pure nanocomposite. The modification with methylamine and copper(II) chloride led to increased content of both acidic and basic oxygen functional groups...
