Design and development of remote Raman spectroscopy system for detection of hazardous compounds
Remote Raman detection has become a powerful analytical technique for detection of hazardous compounds in situ and without sample preparation at distances away from the observation site. This study describes the design, ...
High explosives detection in international mail using See-Through Raman Spectroscopy assisted by multivariate analysis
See-Through Raman Spectroscopy (STRS) was used for the non-invasive, non-destructive sample analysis of high explosives (HEs) in mail envelopes or flats. The method resulted in a safe and rapid analysis of HEs: ammonium ...
Functionalization of titanium surfaces with lysine, aspartic acid, vitamins C and D3: a micro raman study of intermolecular interactions
Titanium (Ti) has been used since 1964 in manufacturing of Ti implants because of its optimal mechanical properties and good biocompatibility. Nevertheless, this biomaterial can have failures due to poor osseointegration ...
TNT and MO photodegradation in deionized and salt waters with visible light assisted by photoactivation of modified TiO2
The release of munitions during military combat events or training exercises represents an alarming situation to the marine environment. Since nitroaromatic compounds (NACs) that are released from these weapons remain in ...
Standoff raman spectroscopy system for detection of explosives, chemical warfare agents simulants and toxic industrial compounds
In this work a remote Raman system has been designed, assembled and tested for detecting explosives, Toxic Industrial Compounds (TIC) and Chemical Warfare Agents Simulants (CWAS) at laboratory scale up to 7 m target-telescope ...
Low temperature aqueous synthesis of Zno nanorods and coating of Au On ZNO for enhanced Raman spectroscopy studies
This thesis reports results on the growth-controlled synthesis of zinc oxide nanorods (ZnO NRs) in aqueous phase has been investigated. ZnO NRs were grown on ZnO films previously deposited onto Si (100) and indium tin oxide ...
