Abstract  

This work presents a relationship between the thermal properties in different polyethylene samples analyzed by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The morphology and structural changes were studied by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). A preparative method involving surface etching was used to obtain surface replicas. The main morphological features of the samples, characterized by lamellar structure, obtained in this work by TEM give values of mean lamellar thickness from 900 to 500 Ĺ in the highest branch content and molecular mass. Enthalpies of melting allowed to calculate crystallinity; given values in the range from 47 to 68%.

Abstract  

Collection of uranium by salicyliden and glutariliden chitosans /Schiff's Bases/ was investigated to obtain information on uranium recovery from ores, especially carnotites. The collection of uranium by salicyliden /SDQ/ and glutariliden /GDQ/ chitosans was very rapid during the first 20 min and was affected by the pH of the solution, contact time and temperature. Uranium collected on SDQ and GDQ was easily eluted with diluted sodium bicarbonate solution. Also uranyl and vanadyl ions were separated from each other by using these biopolymers.
