    ABSTRACT: Chitosan citrate, chitosan citrate/glycerol and chitosan citrate/poly(ethylene glycol) blend membranes were prepared by the solvent casting method. Citrate ion was used as the ionic crosslinker. Glycerol and PEG ...
  • Ali, Haval Mohammed (Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) - Doğu Akdeniz Üniversitesi (DAÜ), 2014-01)
    The perylene chromophore with versatile substituents offers strong absorption in the visible region with high molar extinction coefficients. Moreover, they are capable of emitting light with high fluorescence quantum yields ...
  • Erarslan, Hande (Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU), 2009)
    Synthetic and natural polymers are suitable metal ion adsorbents for various purposes like wastewater or drinking water treatment, biomedical applications, and industrial applications like production of some household ...
  • Eltabeb, Safa Elshreef (Eastern Mediterranean University EMU, 2015-02)
    Perylene bisimides (PBIs) have received significant attention due to their exceptional photophysical and optical properties. Derivatives of PBIs show high fluorescence quantum yields, high electron affinities and large ...
  • Zubair, Rizgar Maher (Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) - Doğu Akdeniz Üniversitesi (DAÜ), 2013-06)
    Carbazoles (Cbz)s are well known electron-donating materials because of the conjugated π-electrons present in their structures, they are one of the most suitable candidates for construction of electronic devices. In the ...
  • Shaban, Shaban Rajab (Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) - Doğu Akdeniz Üniversitesi (DAÜ), 2013-06)
    Electron donating poly(2,7-carbazoles) are one of the most attractive materials emerged as p-type semiconductors for applications in photovoltaic devices in combination with relevant electron accepting systems. On the other ...
  • Reesh, Mosab Abu (Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) - Doğu Akdeniz Üniversitesi (DAÜ), 2015-09)
