Does the leaf structure prevent the deposition of airborne particles? 葉の構造は大気中微粒子の付着を防止するのか?

Other “intro” of papers from our lab >> /tag/paper/

Our results suggest that epicuticular wax crystals affect distribution of particles on needles. Densely distributed epicuticular wax crystals might prevent the deposition of sub-micron particles on the surfaces of needles to retain the function of stomata.

電界放出型走査電子顕微鏡(FE-SEM)によるスギ(代表的な針葉樹種)の葉表面に人工的に散布されたサブミクロンサイズの炭素系粒子の局在を調べました。気孔の機能を保持するために、密に分布されたエピクチクラワックス結晶は、気中からの微粒子の付着を防止する役割があるかもしれません。 Continue reading Does the leaf structure prevent the deposition of airborne particles? 葉の構造は大気中微粒子の付着を防止するのか?

Optimization of Post-Heat Treatment for Doping of Metal Oxide Particles

by P. Widiatmoko, Y. Kondo, H. Matsushima, W. Lenggoro

Liquid-to-solid route for preparing a doped metal oxide (powder) shows advantage on the homogeneity of the precursor as well as the product. Heat treatment plays important role in the process where the salt of precursor in the liquid reacts to form metal oxide solid particles and doped with ions of another element. Understanding the effect of heat treatment in the doping process will then give great advantages. In the present study, different heat-treatment profiles had been proposed and applied to increase the efficiency of doping.

Thermal Fluid Analysis by Numerical simulation

The emission of alkali (“light-metals”) and heavy metals in combustion processes is an important contributor to environmental load. We investigated experimentally in the laboratory the generation of particles from model exhaust gases derived from NaCl and CdCl2. An on-line gas-phase measurement system showed that the mean diameters of aerosol particles derived from the evaporation of NaCl and CdCl2 were 35 and 30 nm, respectively, when the dilution ratio of the model gas was 1:20. The value was 50 nm in two-metal co-evaporation (NaCl and CdCl2). These results may be informative for predicting the phenomena related to gas-to-particle conversion at the exit of stationary emission sources.

Measurement of model aerosols derived from gas mixtures after cooling in a diluter

The emission of particles involving heavy metals in combustion process is a contributor to environmental concerns. However there is little study on the mechanism by which gas-to-particle conversion occurs during cooling and dilution processes under the atmosphere. In the present study, particles generated from model exhaust gasses were investigated. The condition of gas-to-particle conversion was predicted using a computational fluid dynamics combined with heat transfer.
