    Abstract: In the past few decades, carbon nanotube-filled polymer composites have attracted the attention of many researchers with their excellent performance. However, the currently known methods of preparing composite materials do not maximize the performance of the carbon nanotubes themselves. In this work, by using our proposed “particle-constructing” me... Show More

    Abstract: In order to broaden the application of Bentonite clay, an easily obtainable and bio-available low cost adsorbent, it was employed for the decolourization of synthetic wastewater consisting of single and binary basic dyes (Malachite green and Rhodamine b). The adsorbent was used as obtained without any further modification and also characterized for... Show More

    Abstract: In this work Titanium Dioxide thin films were fabricated by pulsed laser deposition technique (PLD) using a Q-switched Nd: YAG laser. Titanium dioxide powder, in the Anatase form, was compressed to form solid disks. Each of these disks was irradiated with different number of laser pulses (5, 10 and 15 pulses) with the same pulse energy (150 mJ) and... Show More
