Abstract: Activated carbon was employed as the adsorption carrier for the metal ions in HCl solution of red mud, a solid waste produced in alumina industry. To improve the adsorption capacity to valuable metal ions, the activated carbon was modified by chemicals including HNO3, H2O2, H2SO4, H3PO4, NH3, Na2CO3, and tri-butyl phosphate (TBP). It was found that the modifications contributed the high adsorption capacity to almost all metal ions we focused on. In the case of TBP, remarkably higher adsorption capacity and selectivity of Sc3+ was observed. The correlation between the surface areas, IR spectra of those chemically modified activated carbons and adsorption was schemed.

Abstract: A series of sorbents for SO2 in flue gas were prepared from hydrated lime and blast furnace slag using a factorial experiment design. It is found that the reaction between hydrated lime and blast furnace slag is fast. The reactivities of the as-prepared sorbents are higher than those of hydrated lime alone due to the formation of calcium silicate hydrates, and hence the utilization of hydrated lime as well as the Ca in the blast furnace slag is improved. Furthermore, the effects of preparation variables on the reactivity of the sorbents are also discussed.

Abstract: Low agglomerating spherical α-Fe2O3 nanopowders were synthesized by catalytic phase transformation in hydrothermal reaction and then dried through freeze-drying. It was found that the as-synthesized particles were spherical and the particle size results obtained from the different measurement methods, including BET, XRD, TEM, SEM and laser particle size analyzer, were almost the same, implying that the α-Fe2O3 nanopowders were low agglomerating.

Abstract: In this paper, mass production of quasi-aligned CNTs was achieved with a new tri-metallic catalyst (Fe-Ni-Mo/MgO) by thermal CVD method, using methane as carbon precursor. The growth process was in-situ monitored by thermal gravimetry/differential scanning calorimetry (TG-DSC) technique, and the yield of CNTs over 2200% was attained under the mixture atmosphere of CH4 and H2 with flow rate about 25 ml/min and 5 ml/min respectively at 900°C for 30 min. The as-prepared products were characterized. Raman spectrums showed that the CNTs are multi-wall structure. The diameter of the CNTs was estimated to be 20-30 nm. We think the synergism of FeNi3 alloy and Mo is the main reason for the high catalytic activity of tri-metallic catalyst.
