    Zainab Ali Al-Ta,ay, Shrok Allami, and Mehdi Salih Shihab

    University of Baghdad College of Science
         In this work proton exchange membranes were prepared by a modified microwave casting solution technique, using the polymers blend (polyethersulfone (PES), polystyrene (PS), polyvinylidenefluride (PVDF)). Modified casting method was used to overcome the poor compatibility between hydrophilic, (PES, PS) and hydrophobic PVDF, by cooling the substrate during the film casting process to (4.5-5.5oC). Membranes were chemically modified by three reaction types to study the differences between their effects on the required properties for microbial fuel cell application. These methods use blend organic sulfonic acid precasting process and sulfonation by sulfuric acid post-casting process (APS), blending organic sulfonic acid precasting process (AS) and sulfonation by sulfuric acid post-casting process (AP). The presence of organic sulfonic acid and the sulfonation were confirmed via FTIR spectra for the membranes. The membranes were characterized by proton conductivity, ion exchange capacity (IEC), [-SO3H] value, and water uptake. MFC is characterized by electrochemical polarization tests and power densities obtained from it were used to evaluate the efficiency of the membrane in the cell.

  • Mechanism of corrosion protection in chloride solution by an apple-based green inhibitor: experimental and theoretical studies
    Mehdi Honarvar Nazari, Mehdi Salih Shihab, Eden Adele Havens, and Xianming Shi

    Springer Science and Business Media LLC
    AbstractPreservation of metals in infrastructures and other assets requires cost-effective and sustainable solutions such as green corrosion inhibitors. This study assesses an apple pomace-derived green inhibitor synthesized by an innovative zero-waste method. Electrochemical measurements revealed the high performance of this liquid extract in reducing the corrosion of carbon steel in NaCl brine. The chemical composition of this inhibitor was characterized by liquid chromatography mass spectroscopy (LC-MS) to shed light on the corrosion inhibition mechanism. Based on LC-MS analysis, the results of surface analysis were interpreted. Specifically, the major corrosion inhibitor agent in the apple pomace extract was determined as C26H50NO7P (1-Linoleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine), which can adsorb onto the steel surface to form a barrier layer and serve as a blocker of active anodic sites. Further study showed that the apple extract adsorption follows the Langmuir isotherm, and physical adsorption is dominant (vs. chemical adsorption). Theoretical calculations using quantum chemistry proposed a physisorption mechanism for the protection of steel by C26H50NO7P molecules.Graphical abstract

    Surface Engineering and Applied Electrochemistry Allerton Press
    Six new pyrazole derivatives were successfully prepared and investigated as corrosion inhibitors for mild steel in 1 M H2SO4 solution by weight loss measurements for 24 h at 30°C. It was observed that at higher inhibitor concentrations, the rate of corrosion decreases, the inhibition efficiency increases as well as the surface coverage degree. The values of the standard free energy of adsorption showed that all prepared pyrazole derivatives afford physisorption effects. The correlation between experimental results and theoretical data could be concluded by using semiempirical molecular orbital calculations for the six studied inhibitors. Theoretical calculations were used to understand the interaction nature between the metal surface and the organic molecules as a corrosion inhibitors.

    Abstract N1,N4-Bis{(2-hydroxyethyl)(methyl)carbamothioyl}terephthalamide (1A) was synthesized by reacting terephthaloyl chloride and ammonium thiocyanate and the product was reacted with 2-Methyl amino ethanol to afford the final product. The product was characterized by Infra Red, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and Electrospray Ionization mass Spectrometric techniques. The crystal was obtained by recrystallization from DMSO by slow evaporation technique. The X-ray studies reveal that (1A) is crystallized in monoclinic system with space group P 21/n, a = 6.9727(9), b = 17.649(2), c = 8.2629(11), α = 90, β = 112.329(4), γ = 90. Z = 2 and V = 940.6(2). In the crystal structure, the molecules are linked by O(1) … H(1) … S(1), and O(1) … H(1) … O(2) intermolecular H-bonds forming a 3-D network. In addition, the antibacterial activities against four different strains of bacteria and theoretical evaluation for the stable geometries for (1A) has been performed using semi-empirical calculations of PM3 method.

    Mehdi Honarvar Nazari, Mehdi Salih Shihab, Ling Cao, Eden Adele Havens, and Xianming Shi

    Informa UK Limited
    ABSTRACT A liquid mixture was developed from waste peony leaves through a zero-waste chemical/biological process. The inhibition effect of different concentrations of peony leaves derived solution (0–3 vol.%, PLS0-3) on C1010 carbon steel in 3.5 wt.% NaCl was investigated over time using electrochemical measurements. Chemical analyses were performed to reveal the main compounds of this inhibitor. Surface analyses together with water contact angle measurements were employed to study the characteristics of the steel surface affected. Semi-empirical calculations with PM3 method were used to find the relationship between molecular structure and inhibiting effect of PLS. The inhibitor was stable over time and its main active ingredients were C19H27N4O10P and C17H16N3O9P that adsorb onto the steel surface, block cathodic active sites, make the surface hydrophobic, decrease the surface free energy, and facilitate the formation of a passive layer. A good correlation was found between experimentally determined inhibition efficiency and theoretically calculated properties of PLS. GRAPHICAL ABSTRACT

  • Experimental and theoretical study of some npyridinium salt derivatives as corrosion inhibitors for mild-steel in 1 M H<inf>2</inf>SO<inf>4</inf>
    M S Shihab and A F Mahmood

    Portuguese Society of Electrochemistry
    N-pyridinium salt derivatives (1–5) were prepared and investigated as corrosion inhibitors for mild steel in 1 M H2SO4 solution at 30°C for 24 h. The corrosion inhibiting action was studied using weight loss measurements. The results demonstrated that the corrosion rate decreases, inhibition efficiencies increase, and surface coverage degree increases with increasing inhibitor concentration. Inhibition efficiencies for prepared N-pyridinium salt derivatives have highest inhibiting efficiency for even low concentration. The values of ΔGads° showed physisorption effect for all prepared compounds. Molecular modeling systems were achieved for suggested inhibitors 1–5. Theoretical calculations could be used as a useful tool to obtain information for explaining the mechanism and nature of interaction between the metal surface and the organic molecule as a corrosion inhibitor.

    Pleiades Publishing Ltd
    In the present work, sodium 4-[(4-formylbenzylidene) amino] benzoiate (4) was synthesized and its structure was confirmed using spectroscopic techniques. Prepared compound was successfully applied as a corrosion inhibitor for C1010 carbon steel in 3.5% NaCl solution at 25°C. Different electrochemical measurements such as linear polarization resistance (LPR), potentiodynamic polarization (PDP), and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) were used to evaluate the suggested inhibitor (4). The results of different electrochemical measurements show that inhibition efficiencies obtained from EIS curves are in consistence with the results of potentiodynamic polarization and LPR measurements due to increase corrosion inhibition efficiency by increasing the concentration of organic inhibitor (4). Semi-empirical calculations with PM3 method were used to find relationship between molecular structure and inhibiting effect of suggested inhibitor (4).

  • Effects of carbon nanotubes on the physical properties of a nematic liquid crystal N-(4′-methoxybenzylidene)-4-butylaniline
    Nasreen Raheem Jber, Alaa Adnan Rashad, and Mehdi Salih Shihab

    Elsevier BV
    Abstract In this work, the nematic liquid crystal (LC) N-(4′-methoxybenzylidene)-4-n-butylaniline (MBBA) was prepared and doped with different concentrations (0.025, 0.05, 0.06, 0.07, 0.08, and 0.1 wt.%) of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) at room temperature to study the electric properties of (LC–CNTs) cell. The experimental results showed that capacitance of (LC–CNTs) cell became higher than that of pure LC cell. The dielectric permittivity is determined as a function of applied frequency (100 Hz to 100 kHz) at voltage (5 V); it is found that increasing concentration of CNTs (0.1 wt.%) led to increase in the real part dielectric constant and decrease in imaginary part for (LC–CNTs) cell compared with the pure liquid crystal. Also conductivity of (LC–CNTs) cell was increased with increasing concentration of CNTs more than 0.05 wt.%. Theoretical study was carried out by using PM3 method for stable geometries of a nematic liquid crystal molecule of MBBA assembled parallel on a molecule of single-walled carbon nanotube (CNT). The result showed that the interaction caused by π,π-stacking between MBBA molecule and the wall of CNT and that may lead to formation of the local short range orientation order by LC molecules on the surface of the CNT. The binding energy of the LC molecule on the CNT wall was within the typical van der Waals interaction.

  • Theoretical Study of the Mechanism of an Inverse-Demand Diels-Alder Reaction
    Mehdi Salih Shihab

    Springer Science and Business Media LLC
    Quantum mechanical calculations (AM1, PM3, ab initio HF/3-21G, DFT(B3LYP/6-31G*) and MP2//(B3LYP/6-31G*) have been used to study the inverse-demand synchronous concerted Diels–Alder reactions between dimethyl-1,2,4,5-tetrazine-3,6-dicarboxylate (diene) and a variety of dienophiles (ethylene, cyclopentadiene, 1-hexene, cyclohexene). All the molecular structures (reactants, transition states, intermediates and adducts) were optimized using the semi-empirical AM1 method. The calculated energies and volumes showed that the cycloaddition reaction followed a mechanism involving the formation of an intermediate, elimination of N2, and a 1,3-hydrogen shift adduct. The reaction energies of the systems were obtained by using semi-empirical AM1 calculations and showed good agreement with the experimental data. In contrast, calculations of the reaction energies using PM3, HF/3-21G, DFT (B3LYP/6-31G*) and MP2//(B3LYP/6-31G* were in poor agreement with the experimental data. Compared to the experimental data, the activation energies were overestimated using AM1, PM3 and HF/3-21G, while they were underestimated using DFT (B3LYP/6-31G*) and MP2//(B3LYP/6-31G*).

    Wiley
    Solvent, salt and high pressure effects on the rate and equilibrium constants for the formation of tri-n-butylphosphoniumdithiocarboxylate at 298.2 K are reported. This equilibrium is shifted to the phosphobetaine in polar solvents, salt solutions and under high external pressure. The reaction volume changes dramatically on going from less polar diethyl ether (−69 cm3 mol−1) and tetrahydrofurane (THF) (−66 cm3 mol−1), to more polar acetonitrile (−39 cm3 mol−1) and acetone (−38 cm3 mol−1).

    The Chemical Society of Japan
    Kinetic effects of pressure on a decay of a radical pair produced by UV irradiation of N,N'-dibenzyl-4,4'-bypyridinium dichloride were studied in acetonitrile (AN) and propylene carbonate (PC). Both in AN and PC, the process was accelerated by an increase in pressure indicating a considerable contraction of the solvation sphere during the activation. Furthermore, in PC, pressure-induced retardation was observed at P > 200 MPa and it was attributed to slow solvent thermal fluctuations at high pressures.

  • Diffusion control of the Diels-Alder reaction rate at elevated pressures
    V. D. Kiselev, E. A. Kashaeva, M. S. Shihab, L. N. Potapova, and G. G. Iskhakova

    Springer Science and Business Media LLC
    The influence of the temperature and external pressure on the rate of the Diels—Alder reaction between 9,10-dimethylanthracene and maleic anhydride was studied in the series of solvents with wide intervals of viscosity (0.3—43.2 mPa s), dielectric constant (2—38), and internal pressure (3—8.8 kbar). At a standard pressure these properties of the solvent exert a weak and irregular effect on the reaction rate constant and activation enthalpy and entropy. The effect of the external pressure on the rate constant was studied in a high-pressure (up to 1 kbar) optical cell in acetonitrile and silicon oil and in a barostat cell (up to 6 kbar, toluene, silicon oil). Close values of the activation volume were obtained in all solvents. In toluene the reaction rate increases smoothly in the whole pressure interval. In more viscous silicon oil a similar dependence is observed up to 3 kbar, and the reaction rate decreases sharply with the further increase in the pressure and viscosity because of the diffusion control of the process.
