    Abstract: The values of free energies, the heats and entropies of formation and heat capacities of gaseous and condensed atoms of I-VII main and lateral groups and three groups of transitive elements of Mendeleev’s Periodic table were analyzed. Seventy nine equations of such type as ∆g,f,sΨo = i ± f N, in which ∆g,f,sΨo is thermodynamic function, i and f ar... Show More

    Abstract: Using a Na/NaCuO2 cell, we investigate the conversion of NaCuO2 during charge and discharge reactions and the new products formed by the conversion. In the voltage range of 0.75 to 3.0 V, the results of ex-situ XRD analysis indicate that Na2CuO2, an unstable amorphous discharge product, converted into CuO and Cu2O. Moreover, an XPS analysis reveals... Show More

    Abstract: Modification of a gold electrode of an electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance (EQCM) has been achieved by immobilizing a bis(2,2--bipyridyl)copper(II) complex on a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) of 1-mercapto-11-undecanoic acid (MUA). The electrostatic interaction of the negatively charged SAM with a di-positive copper complex allowed the atta... Show More

    Abstract: Modern civilization uses huge amount of electrical power. Most of this power is generated by using fossil fuel which is non-renewable and we can not produce it according to our desire .If this condition continue human civility will face great difficulties. In this case energy solution for the future will increasingly depend upon the uses of renewab... Show More

    Abstract: We studied experimentally and theoretically how the network topology influences the mechanical properties and swelling of polymer networks. The properties of monofunctional and polyfunctional networks were compared. The cross-link functionality distribution of the polyfunctional networks is a power function. Such networks are also called scale-free... Show More
