The effect of bimetallic and monometallic ions on the mechanical properties of hydrogels is studied.
As shown by the results of numerical simulation of the assembly of joints by pressure of the pulsed magnetic field and the results of metallographic studies of the joints obtained, the interaction of the sleeve with the monometallic wires of the M-120 and A-185 wires at optimum specific energy leads to a uniform deformation of the majority of the wires, their complete compaction and cutting (Fig.
Monometallic (Co-MCM-48) and bimetallic (CoMn-MCM-48) catalysts were synthesized and characterized.
Intensity of absorption in the hybrid nanoparticles prepared from 2.0 mM precursor solution was in contrast to the maximum intensity of absorption noticed in the corresponding monometallic Ag NPs.
Ribeiro and coworkers synthesized a carbon nanotube(CNT-) supported bimetallic 0.8%Ru-30%W/CNT catalyst prepared via a sequential incipient wetness impregnation method (first loaded with W and then with Ru component) for the hydrolytic hydrogenation of cellulose to EG, leading to 100% cellulose conversion and about 40% EG yield in aqueous solution at 205[degrees]C for 3 h of reaction under 5.0 MPa of [H.sub.2] pressure, which was demonstrated to be an improved catalytic performance compared with monometallic Ru/CNT or W/CNT catalyst under the same reaction conditions (Table 3, entry 2) [274].
The principal adducts derived from the simplest C[O.sub.2] monometallic complexes are summarized in Figure 6.
