• composite
  • In this paper, we report the fabrication and optimization of thin-film nanofiber composite PRO (TNC-PRO) membranes with a unique support membrane structure (inter-connected, low tortuousness and highly porous properties), aiming to facilitate mixing of accumulated solutes with a dilute feed stream and overcome the ICP problem.

  • membranes
  • With such low structure parameter ( S ) value (150 μm) nanofiber support membranes (NSMs), the optimum water permeability ( A ) and solute permeability ( B ) of the TNC-PRO membrane for power generation were determined to be 4.1 L m −2 h −1 bar −1 and 1.74 L m −2 h −1 respectively. (rsc.org)

  • films
  • The titanate nanofiber thin films adhered firmly to titanium. (hindawi.com)
  • Since these thin films possess excellent mechanical properties derived from titanium and an outstanding ability to form apatite (i.e., osteoconductivity) derived from sodium titanate, they have been widely studied as biocompatible materials for use in artificial joints [ 6 - 15 ]. (hindawi.com)

  • optimum
  • The researchers have also determined the optimum diameter for the nanofibers to support this process - giving important new clues to answer the question of why some nerves are myelinated and some aren't. (nanotech-now.com)
  • titanium
  • Our group found that a sodium titanate nanotube thin film could be formed on the surface of a titanium plate after hydrothermal treatment of a titanium plate in a 10 mol/L NaOH solution, followed by a fixing treatment [ 23 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • On the other hand, the sodium titanate nanofiber thin film firmly adhered to the surface of a titanium plate immediately after performing the hydrothermal treatment and therefore required no special fixing treatment. (hindawi.com)
  • Therefore, the nanofiber thin film, which has excellent adherence to titanium, appears to be a promising biocompatible material. (hindawi.com)
  • nanotube
  • Performing a silver ion exchange treatment on the formed thin film using a silver acetate solution transformed the sodium titanate nanotube thin film into a silver nanoparticle/silver titanate nanotube thin film. (hindawi.com)
  • film
  • In the present paper, we introduce a sodium titanate nanofiber thin film. (hindawi.com)
  • The sodium titanate nanofiber thin film was obtained using a 4 mol/L NaOH solution instead of a 10 mol/L NaOH solution. (hindawi.com)
