Modification of Ceramics and Ceramic Glazers with Carbon Nanoadditives, and Properties of the Modified Materials

The work describes a method of modifying the ceramic materials by introducing carbon-based nanoscopic additives into the slip composite and glaze composite in the form of water-based suspension for the production of sanitary and technical ceramics of increased quality. Physical and mechanical properties of experimental samples are researched. The results of experimental research are obtained in the form of experimentally determined properties of composite materials which were nanomodified by carbon nanostructures.

Some Supramolecular Nanostructures Based on Catalytic Active Nickel and Iron Heteroligand Complexes. Functional Models of Ni(Fe) Dioxygenases

The possibility of the supramolecular nano structures formation on the basis of iron and nickel heteroligand complexes: Fex(acac)y18C6m(H2O)n, and Fex(acac)y(CTAB)p(H2O)q, or Ni2(OAc)3(acac)L2•2H2O (L2 = MP)  with the assistance of H-bonding, is researched using the AFM method. Formation of different supramolecular nanostructures on the basis of nickel and iron heteroligand complexes as models for Ni(Fe)ARD Dioxygenases may be used for understanding of different actions of these enzymes.

Investigation of Phase Separation Processes for Bioactive Glasses in Na2О–CаO–ZnO–TiO2–ZrO2–Al2O3–B2O3–P2O5–SiO2 Sysytem

Nanostructural changes on initial stages of calcium silicophosphate glasses nucleation in Na2О–CаO–ZnO–TiO2–ZrO2–Al2O3–B2O3–P2O5–SiO2 system during phase separation have been investigated. It has been established that the presence of drop-shaped nano- and micro-nonuniformities in the structure of calcium silicophosphate glasses substantially affects the glass separation in a precrystallization period, helping intense fine hydroxyapatite crystallization with the crystal size of up to 1 μm after heat treatment.

Catalytic Activity of Binary and Triple Systems Based on Redox Inactive Metal Compound, LiSt and Additives of Monodentate Ligands-Modifiers: DMF, HMPA and PhOH, in Selective Ethylbenzene Oxidation with Dioxygen

Mechanism of catalysis with binary and triple catalytic systems based on redox inactive metal (lithium) compound {LiSt+L2} and {LiSt+L2+PhOH} (L2=DMF or HMPA), in the selective ethylbenzene oxidation by dioxygen into -phenylethyl hydroperoxide is researched. The results are compared with catalysis by nickel-lithium triple system {NiII(acac)2+LiSt+PhOH} in selective ethylbenzene oxidation to PEH. The role of H-bonding in mechanism of catalysis is discussed.
