As a graduation project, worked on effect of hydroxide sources on emission and morphology of europium doped yttrium hydroxide crystals. After understanding the effect, started working on facile synthesis of the crystals with -the best colleague I have- Tuğrul Güner. Procedure of synthesis involves a reactive base as a hydroxide source via help of the …

Currently, developing sorbent materials for the lithium ion. Methods are used in the process are precipitation polymerization and electrospinning for powder and nanofibers respectively. Both methods include crown ethers known for specific metal complexes. Projects are aimed at recovering lithium from geothermal brine, so sorbent materials should be water insoluble. To achieve this crosslinking of …

Recently, started helping a Ph.D. colleague for synthesizing gold nanoparticles to obtain a strain sensor. The synthetic route contains aqueous and organic phases and microphase. After mixing the solutions, to acquire nanoparticles microphase extraction is fulfilled and reduced via NaBH4. A polymeric matrix is achieved in order to avoid aggregation of gold nanoparticles and tensile …
