2004-03-01

Resumo em português Suportes poliméricos foram sintetizados por meio da copolimerização de estireno (S) e divinilbenzeno (DVB) em suspensão aquosa na presença de misturas diluentes constituídas por tolueno e n-heptano, solventes esses considerados como bom e mau para o polímero respectivamente, em composições variadas. Foram usados dois teores de DVB (60 e 80%) e dois graus de diluição (100 e 200%). Os suportes foram caracterizados no estado seco e no estado inchado e suas proprie (mais) dades foram relacionadas com os parâmetros de síntese. No estado seco, os copolímeros foram analisados quanto à densidade aparente, à área específica, ao volume de poros e à morfologia. No estado inchado foi observado o comportamento dos copolímeros em tolueno e em n-heptano. Neste trabalho são comentadas as vantagens do uso desses suportes para a preparação de catalisadores sulfônicos e se faz uma comparação entre esses catalisadores e os catalisadores homogêneos convencionais comumente usados em sínteses orgânicas. Resumo em inglês Polymer supports were synthesized by aqueous suspension copolymerization of styrene and divinylbenzene in the presence of diluent mixtures formed by toluene (good solvent) and heptane (bad solvent) in different compositions. Two relative concentrations of DVB (60 and 80%) and two dilution degrees relative to the monomers volume (100 and 200%) were used in the copolymerizations. The supports were characterized in dry and swollen states and their properties were related to (mais) the synthesis parameters. In the dry state, the bulk density, surface area, pore volume and morphology of the copolymers were determined. In the swollen state, a study was made of the copolymers behavior in toluene and heptane respectively. In this work the advantages of using polymer supports in the preparation of sulfonic catalysts were discussed including a comparison between homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts often used in organic synthesis.

2003-12-01

Resumo em português Análises do perfil aromático da carne caprina cozida de animais mestiços foram realizadas utilizando-se animais castrados e inteiros, abatidos com idades de 175, 220, 265 e 310 dias. O perfil aromático da carne caprina foi constituído por 108 voláteis, sendo que 69 foram positivamente identificados e 39 parcialmente caracterizados utilizando-se análises de CG-EM. O perfil aromático da carne caprina foi formado por hidrocarbonetos alifáticos e alicíclicos, aldeí (mais) dos, compostos benzênicos, álcoois, cetonas, terpenóides, ésteres e compostos heterocíclicos sulfurados, hexadecanal, benzeno, heptano e octadecanal foram os voláteis que apresentaram os maiores índices de abundância relativa. Nas análises quantitativa e qualitativa observaram-se uma predominância de voláteis nos extratos de carne de caprinos castrados. O número total de voláteis e a abundância relativa das diferentes classes de compostos não foram claramente afetados pelo fator idade de abate. Resumo em inglês The volatile profile of cooked goat meat was analysed using meat from castrated and intact animals slaughtered at 175, 220, 265 and 310 days. A total of 108 volatiles was detected and from them 69 was identified and a further 39 were partially characterised by GC-MS. The volatile profile was composed by hydrocarbons aliphatic and alicyclic, aldehydes, benzenoid compounds, alcohols, ketones, terpenoids, esters and sulfur compounds. Hexadecanal, benzen, heptane and octadeca (mais) nal were among the volatiles with highest relative abundance. In both qualitative and quantitative analyses extracts from castrated meat had higher production of volatiles. The total number and the relative abundance of different classes of compounds seemed not to be cleared affected by slaughter age factor.

Moura, Lyzette G. M. de; Ramos, Antonio Carlos S.
2009-01-01

Resumo em português A massa molar é uma propriedade essencial na caracterização de asfaltenos e um dos principais parâmetros de entrada nos modelos para a predição da precipitação. Na literatura são relatadas massas molares entre 1000 e 10000 g.mol-1 para os asfaltenos, variando em função da técnica, natureza do petróleo, tipo de solvente e temperatura. Neste trabalho foi determinada a massa molar média numérica para dois asfaltenos em tolueno, o C7I (insolúveis em heptano) e (mais) o C5I (insolúveis em pentano) através da osmometria de pressão de vapor. Os dados experimentais foram avaliados levando em consideração efeitos da agregação dos asfaltenos em solução e sua maior dispersão em baixas concentrações. Foram feitos ainda ajustes matemáticos respeitando a tendência das curvas para diluições infinitas buscando produzir melhores resultados no valor da massa molar. Os valores obtidos foram comparados com os métodos convencionais aplicados à análise da osmometria de pressão de vapor, e situaram-se entre 3200 e 5200 g.mol-1 para o asfaltenos C5I e entre 4100 e 5400 g.mol-1 para o C7I. Resumo em inglês Molar mass is an essential property for the characterization of asphaltenes and one of the main input parameters in the models for the prediction of the precipitation. In the literature molar masses between 1,000 and 10,000 g.mol-1 for the asphaltenes are quoted, depending on the technique, petroleum origin, solvent nature and temperature. In this work the numerical average molar mass for two asphaltenes in toluene, the C7I (insoluble in heptane) and the C5I (insoluble in (mais) pentane), was determined by vapor pressure osmometry. The experimental data were evaluated taking into account effects of asphaltenes aggregation in solution and its larger dispersion at low concentrations. Mathematical fittings were also made to comply with the curve bias for infinite dilutions, which was aimed at finding more accurate values for the molar mass. The results found were compared with the conventional methods applied to the analysis of the vapor pressure osmometry and varied from 3,200 to 5,200 g.mol-1 for the C5I asphaltenes and from 4,100 to 5,400 g.mol-1 for C7I.

Coutinho, Fernanda M.B.; Rezende, Simone M.
2001-01-01

Resumo em português Suportes poliméricos à base de estireno (Sty) e divinilbenzeno (DVB) foram preparados por polimerização em suspensão aquosa em presença de diluente (mistura de tolueno e n-heptano em composição variada) em um grau de diluição de 100 % e com quatro teores diferentes de DVB (10, 20, 40 e 60 %). Os suportes foram caracterizados nos estados seco e inchado. No estado seco foram analisados quanto à densidade aparente, área específica, volume de poros e morfologia, (mais) e no estado inchado foi observado o comportamento em dois diferentes tipos de solventes, um bom e um mau solvente para o copolímero de estireno-divinilbenzeno. As propriedades dos suportes poliméricos, nos estados seco e inchado, foram relacionadas com os parâmetros de síntese. Os suportes poliméricos foram sulfonados em presença de solvente capaz de inchar a rede polimérica (1,2-dicloroetano). Os catalisadores sulfônicos obtidos foram caracterizados no estado seco e inchado e a atividade catalítica foi avaliada em reações de esterificação de ácido acético com n-butanol. Também foi avaliado o efeito da reciclagem dos catalisadores na sua atividade catalítica. Resumo em inglês Polymer supports based on styrene and divinylbenzene were prepared by aqueous suspension polymerization in presence of diluents (mixtures of toluene and heptane in varied compositions) at 100% v/v of dilution degree (relative to the monomers volume) at four DVB proportions (10, 20, 40 and 60%). The supports were characterized in the dry and swollen states. In the dry state, the apparent density, surface area, pore volume and morphology were determined. In the swollen stat (mais) e, the behavior in two different solvents, one good and one bad for the styrene-divinylbenzene copolymer, was observed. The polymer support properties in the dry and swollen states were related with the respective synthesis parameters. The polymer supports were sulfonated in the presence of a solvent able to swell the polymer network (1,2-dichloroethane). The obtained supported catalysts were also analyzed in the dry and swollen states. The catalysts activities were evaluated in the acetic acid esterification with n-butanol, and the recycling effect of two different catalysts on its activities was also evaluated.

Caracterização de eletrodos de difusão de gás de células a combustível do tipo membrana trocadora de prótons/ Characterization of the gas diffusion electrodes of proton exchange membrane fuel cells

Pires, M.; Azevedo, C.M.N.; Ramos, C.Z.; Canalli, V.M.
2009-01-01

Resumo em português Em células a combustível1 de eletrólito polimérico sólido o principal componente é o conjunto membrana/eletrodos - MEA (membrane-eletrocde assembly). Os eletrodos de difusão de gás - GDL (gas diffusion layer) são um dos principais constituintes do MEA, sendo um material compósito constituído de camadas difusora e catalítica, formadas por pó de carbono, platina e polímeros - PTFE (politetrafluoretileno) e Nafion - depositados sobre um substrato (papel ou teci (mais) do de carbono). Essas camadas apresentam superfícies rugosas e porosas, de caracterização complexa. O objetivo deste trabalho é caracterizar a GDL. A molhabilidade da superfície foi determinada por medidas de ângulo de contato externo pelo método da gota de água. Os ângulos de avanço e recuo foram medidos e usados para estimar a histerese e o ângulo de equilíbrio. A morfologia e a composição foram estudadas usando Microscopia eletrônica de varredura e espectroscopia de energia dispersiva, enquanto que a porosidade foi medida embebendo os substratos com n-heptano e água para quantificar os poros hidrofílicos/hidrofóbicos. O estudo morfológico indicou que a incorporação do PTFE no pó de carbono é uma etapa crítica na fabricação das camadas difusoras. Uma maior quantidade de PTFE resulta no decréscimo da porosidade total e um aumento do percentual de poros hidrofóbicos para ambos os substratos. Os resultados obtidos na determinação dos ângulos de contato apresentaram boa precisão, em especial para os compósitos depositados sobre o tecido de carbono. Os ângulos de contato obtidos para as camadas catalíticas foram inferiores aos das camadas difusoras, provavelmente devido à presença do Nafion, que apresenta caráter hidrofílico minimizado a hidrofobicidade do compósito. Esses resultados confirmaram a complexidade do GDL e a importância de sua caracterização detalhada para a otimização da fabricação do MEA. Resumo em inglês In polymer electrode fuel cells the main component is the membrane/electrodes assembly (MEA). Gas diffusion electrodes (GDL) are the principal components of the MEA, being a composite material constituted of diffusion and catalyst layers, formed by carbon powder, platinum, PTFE and Nafion polymers deposed over a subtract (carbon paper or cloth). These layers present roughness and porous surfaces of complex characterization. The aim of this work is to characterize GDL. The (mais) surface wettability was assessed by drop water external contact angle measurements. The advancing and receding angles were measured and used to estimate the hysteresis and the equilibrium angle. Morphology and composition were studied using scanning electronic microscopy and energy dispersive spectroscopy while porosity was measured by imbibing n-heptane and water into substrates to quantify hydrophilic/hydrofobic pores. Morphologic study indicated that PTFE incorporation into carbon power is a critical step on diffusion layers fabrication. A greater amount of PTFE results in decrease the total porosity and increases the percent of hydrophobic porous for both substrates. The results obtained in angles contact determination present good precision, especially for the composite deposited over carbon cloth. The values obtained for contact angels of the catalyst layers were lower than ones measured over diffusion layer, probably due to the presence of Nafion, which presents a hydrophilic character minimizing the composite hydrophobicity. These results confirmed the complexity of GDL and confirmed the importance of a detailed characterization for MEA assembly optimization.

2009-01-01

Resumo em português Polímeros sintéticos são largamente utilizados em diversos produtos devido às suas propriedades físicas, químicas e facilidade de transformação. O poli(cloreto de vinila), conhecido como PVC, é um dos polímeros mais versáteis desenvolvidos pelo homem, de grande utilidade para a sociedade moderna. Suas aplicações incluem: janelas, calhas de chuva, revestimentos de paredes, portas, papel de parede, mangueiras, brinquedos, calçados, bolsas de sangue e tubos par (mais) a condução de água. Em todas estas aplicações são utilizados aditivos junto à resina de PVC, sendo que um dos aditivos mais utilizados é o plastificante. Este estudo apresenta a análise comparativa de formulações flexíveis de PVC, baseada em dois plastificantes de origem renovável (óleo vegetal modificado - OVM e óleo vegetal modificado e epoxidado - OVME), e também dois plastificantes petroquímicos convencionais, di(2-etilhexil) ftalato - (DEHP) ou DOP e di(2-etilhexil) adipato - (DEHA) ou DOA. Não foram observadas diferenças significativas entre as propriedades mecânicas das formulações. Os diferentes plastificantes demonstram influenciar na dureza e resistência química das formulações, sendo que o grupo epóxi e a maior massa molar no plastificante vegetal apresentam maior compatibilidade com a resina de PVC. A análise de MEV apresenta uma provável exudação do plastificante OVM da matriz do PVC. Resumo em inglês Synthetic polymers have been widely used in manufactured products because of their physical and chemical properties and low cost of production. Poly(vinyl chloride), called PVC, is a versatile, inexpensive plastic whose use has become pervasive in modern society. Its applications include window frames, rain gutters, wall paneling, doors, wallpapers, flooring, garden furniture, toys, blood bags and pipes. In all of these applications additives are used, with plasticizers b (mais) eing among the most important. This work shows a comparative study among distinct compositions of flexible PVC - based on two vegetable plasticizers from renewable sources (modified vegetable oil - OVM and epoxidized modified vegetable oil - OVME), in addition to two conventional petrochemical plasticizers, called di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate-(DEHP) and di(2-ethylhexyl) adipate-(DEHA). No significant differences were observed in the mechanical behavior of the compositions evaluated. The plasticizers affected the hardness and chemical resistance to n-heptane for the compositions. The epoxi group and the high molar mass from vegetable plasticizers showed better compatibility with the PVC resin. The analyses by SEM showed a probable exudation of OVM from the PVC matrix.

Estudo da influência do solvente, carboidrato e ácido graxo na síntese enzimática de ésteres de açúcares/ Study of the influence of solvent, carbohydrate and fatty acid in the enzymatic synthesis of sugar esters by lipases

Paula, Ariela V. de; Barboza, Jayne C. de Souza; Castro, Heizir F. de
2005-10-01

Resumo em inglês The aim of this work was to gain knowledge of enzymatic processes for the synthesis fatty acid esters of sugar, with the objective to develop an enzymatic process for the preparation of non-toxic biodegradable surface-active agents derived entirely from renewable resources. A wide range of data were collected for reaction conditions involving different sugars (glucose, fructose and sucrose), fatty acids (oleic, palmitic, lauric), solvents (hexane, heptane and t-butanol) a (mais) nd different sources of lipases in both free and immobilized forms. As a solvent t-butanol provided the best conditions to create a catalytic liquid phase in which the reaction occurs. Sugars were preferentially esterified in the following order: fructose > glucose > sucrose, depending on the enzyme preparation. For fructose no influence was found concerning de acyl donor and similar rates were achieved for all tested fatty acids. Ester synthesis was maximized for substrates containing fructose, lauric or oleic acids, t-butanol and lipase from porcine pancreas immobilized on polysiloxane-polyvinyl alcohol particles. Under such conditions molar conversions were higher than 50%.

2011-01-01

Resumo em inglês Asphaltenes are fractions of crude oils that can precipitate and one of the parameters used in the prediction of the conditions in which this phenomenon occurs is the Hildebrand solubility parameter. In this work, it was evaluated the uncertainty propagation in the experimental determination of the solubility parameter of different crude oils, calculated from data of the asphaltenes precipitation by the addition of n-heptane, identified by optical microscopy. It was verif (mais) ied that the solubility parameter of an oil and the associated uncertainty are specific, being recommended that, whenever viable, it is determined parallel both, conferring higher credibility to the results.
