    Utilization of Nanomaterials as Anode Modifiers for Improving Microbial Fuel Cells Performance

    Nishit Savla1, Raksha Anand2, Soumya Pandit2,*, Ram Prasad3,*

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.8, No.12, pp. 1581-1605, 2020, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2020.011803

    Abstract Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) are an attractive innovation at the nexus of energy and water security for the future. MFC utilizes electrochemically active microorganisms to oxidize biodegradable substrates and generate bioelectricity in a single step. The material of the anode plays a vital role in increasing the MFC’s power output. The anode in MFC can be upgraded using nanomaterials providing benefits of exceptional physicochemical properties. The nanomaterials in anode gives a high surface area, improved electron transfer promotes electroactive biofilm. Enhanced power output in terms of Direct current (DC) can be obtained as the consequence of improved microbe-electrode interaction. However,… More >

    Classification and Optimization Model of Mesoporous Carbons Pore Structure and Adsorption Properties Based on Support Vector Machine

    Zhen Yang1, Xingsheng Gu2, Xiaoyi Liang1,3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.74, No.3&4, pp. 161-182, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2011.074.161

    Abstract Mesoporous carbons are synthesized by organic-organic self-assembly of triblock copolymer F127 and a new type of carbon precursor as resorcinol-furfural oligomers. Some factors will impact the mesoporous carbons pore structure and properties were studied. The main factors, such as the ratio of triblock copolymer F127 and oligomers, degree of polymerizstry of resorcinol-furfural oligomers, the ratio of resorcinol-furfural oligomers - F/R, and their mutual relations were identified. Aimed at balancing the complex characteristic of mesoporous structure and adsorption properties, a classification and optimization model based on support vector machine is developed. The optimal operation conditions of Barret-Joyner-Halenda (BJH) adsorption cumulative volume… More >
