||PCT/MA2012/000035||UNIVERSITE MOULAY ISMAIL||NAKHELI, Abdelrhani|
The device provided is a tensiometer, it is an experimental device that allows the surface tension of liquids to be measured. It consists of: an electromagnetic force sensor, to which a rectangular strip of glass is attached by way of a rod that is securely fastened to it; a scissor lift; and a beaker that contains the liquid to be studied. Using the lift the beaker is gradually raised until the free surface of the liquid and the lower part of the strip, the width and thickness of which are known, make contact. Next, the beaker is gradually lowered using the scissor lift, the tension measured by the force sensor gradually increases as the beaker is lowered until the strip tearing limit, where the tension reaches its maximum value. Prior calibration of the sensor allows the tearing force of the strip to be calculated, and the surface tension of the liquid to be deduced therefrom. The measurement range of the electromagnetic force sensor (electromagnetic dynamometer) is comprised between 0 mN and 30 mN, and returns measurements with a precision of ΔF = 10-2 mN. By attaching an attachment to the electromagnetic force sensor, the surface tension of liquids may be measured simply by weighing N droplets of a given drop count, knowing its capillary diameter. In this case, the force sensor is used as an electromagnetic weighing scale the measurement range of which is between 0 g and 3 g, and returns values with a precision Δm = 1 mg. Surface tension measurements were carried out on water/ethanol mixtures using both techniques (strip tearing method and falling droplets of a drop count method), the results obtained by these two techniques were in very good agreement. Surface tension measurements were also carried out on pure liquids (distilled water, methanol and acetic acids) the results obtained were in very good agreement with results from the literature.
||WO||WO/2014/003527 - NANO-FERRITES (NANOPARTICLES AND NANORODS) MADE FROM ND1-XMEXFE2O4 (M = CO, NI, MN, SN)||03.01.2014||
||PCT/MA2013/000004||MASCIR (MOROCCAN FOUNDATION FOR ADVANCED SCIENCE, RESEARCH AND INNOVATION)||BENYOUSSEF, Abdelilah|
The present invention concerns nano-ferrite materials (in powder form) made from a mixture of rare earths, transition metals and light rare earth elements. Nano-ferrites (nanoparticles and nanorods) of Nd1-xMexFe2O4 (Me = Co, Ni, Mn, Sn, etc.) spinel ferrites have been prepared by the co-precipitation method. XRD X-ray diffraction and TEM imagery confirm the proper crystallisation of the nanorods in the case of NdFe2O4 doped with transition metals and nanoparticles in the case of NdFe2O4 doped with light rare earth elements. The results show that the cation distribution on the tetrahedral and octahedral sites in the spinel network is partially inverse. The magnetic properties of the samples have been characterised by using a superconductor quantum interference device (SQUID). The magnetic properties show that the system has a high moment of saturation and a moderate coercive force at room temperature. The residual magnetisation, saturation magnetisation, coercive force, blocking temperature, and transition temperature of the nano-ferrite material are optimised by the concentration of the magnetic ions, the size and the shape of the nanoparticles in order to achieve the characteristics required for well-defined applications. The superparamagnetic nanoparticles created are multifunctional materials of which the size and shape can be used for the exchange of magnetism and other uses. The value of such nano-ferrites is in providing a major advancement in terms of understanding and controlling the phase, composition and size thereof, in relation to the basic magnetic response. Said oxide nanoparticles made from a mixture of transition metals and rare earths are simple and economical to produce in high quantities with uniform magnetic properties and can be encapsulated, functionalised or left bare as an oxide which is stable at room temperature.
