Surface structure and assessment of dust productivity of the cometary nucleus C/2017 K2 (PANSTARRS)

C/2017 K2 (PANSTARRS) is a dynamically new hyperbolic comet that has exhibited activity at an extremely large heliocentric distance of 23.75 au.  Observations of comet C/2017 K2 were performed at Mayaki observational station of the Astronomical Observatory of Odesa I. I.


The main stages of the formation of morphology as scientific teaching are highlighted and characterized, the fundamental aspects of the concept of "form" are formulated, the features of the formation of morphology as an independent scientific direction are generalized, the categorical analogue of "morphological" in urban planning is traced, and the place of morphology in the teachings of form in urban planning is determined.

Cadmium electrochemical reduction in CdCl2 solutions in dimethylsulfoxide and morphology of cathode deposit

Cadmium reduction in solutions at steady-state and pulse electrolysis has been studied. It was established that polarization results in cadmium formation at potentials 1 V larger than equilibrium one. In 0.25-1.0 molar solutions of CdCl2 concentrated depolarization leads to removement of the beginning of cadmium reduction by 0.3 V. Photographs of SEM are presented and effect of electrolysis characteristics on the morphology of cathode deposit is shown.

Morphology of a dispersed tellurium electrochemical deposition in aprotic solvents

The electrolysis of TeCl4 solutions in dimethylsulfoxide, dimethylformamide and acetonitrile using soluble tellurium anodes has been investigated. At 313 K in 0.05 M TeCl4 over graphic undercoat the formation of compact tellurium deposit took place at cathode potentials less than 1.0 V and formation of dispersed deposit – at values more than 1.25-1.5 V. Using results of SEM researches it was established that dispersed tellurium formed

TPU/Mica Composites Prepared in Torque Rheometer: Processability, Mechanical Properties and Morphology

This work is concerned with the preparation of thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer (TPU) composites with mica, and their characterization as for processability, mechanical and thermal properties and morphology behavior. The amount of added mica varied from 0 to 20 phr and the results showed few interactions between mica and the polymer matrix. Processability is facilitated by the increasing amount of mica but TPU upon strain crystallizability, as well as Tg, decrease with the increase in mica content.

Morphology of Zinc Deposited via Cementation over Magnesium Rotary Disc in ZnCl2+NH4Cl Aqueous Solutions

Zinc cementation by magnesium from ZnCl2+NH4Cl aqueous solutions has been investigated. The amount of magnesium has been established as 0.8–2.0 g per 1 g of conditioned zinc to obtain recovery degree  99 %. At low concentrations of Zn2+ ions (0.025–0.1 M ZnCl2) dispersed deposit is formed with nanoparticles of reduced metal; at high concentrations (0.25–0.5 M) coarse-crystalline and fern-shaped deposit is formed.

Morphological Characterization of Cellulose Acetate Based Reverse Osmosis Membranes by Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM)-Effect of Evaporation Time

The surface structures of asymmetric cellulose acetate membranes prepared by the phase inversion method were investigated by the atomic force microscopy (AFM). The differences in the surface morphology have been expressed in terms of four types of roughness parameters such as; roughness average (Sa), root mean square roughness (Sq), surface skewness (Ssk), and surface kurtosis (Sku). The association of the roughness characteristics with the salt rejection performance has also been investigated.

The Conditions Effect of Obtaining CdS and CdSe Films on their Structural and Optical Properties

The conditions effect of obtaining CdS and CdSe thin films by a chemical surface deposition method (CSD) on their structural and optical properties has been studied. The optical transmission, absorption spectra and surface morphology of films and degree of phase uniformity were investigated. The content of cadmium ions in the obtained coatings by the method of voltammetry inversion was defined. The thickness of the obtained semiconductor films was calculated according to the mass of cadmium.

Morphology and Properties of Blends of Poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) with Poly(vinyl alcohol)

The structure of extruded films based on blends of polyvinyl alcohol and poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) was studied for various compositions. The methods of DSC and X-ray analysis were used. As the phase-sensitive characteristics of the composite films, diffusion and water vapor permeability were also investigated. In addition, the tensile modulus and relative elongation-at-break were measured. Changes in the glass transition temperature of the blends and constant melting points of the components show their partial compatibility in intercrystallite regions.
