To better understand the effect of the CNT–OH/SAE on the properties of cement composites, the microstructures of the HPC, SPC and HSPC samples were observed under FESEM. Exposures to styrene in humans can cause a respiration problem. Then the homo-dispersion CNT/SAE emulsion was incorporated into cement paste. ; Valcarcel, M.; Mizaikoff, B.

This process is being developed by Snamprogetti and Dow. ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V. ScienceDirect ® is a registered trademark of Elsevier B.V. In this review, the toxicological effects of styrene on humans, animals, and plants are discussed. Author to whom correspondence should be addressed. [17] However, the styrene that was obtained from cinnamic acid seemed different from the styrene that was obtained by distilling storax resin: the latter was optically active. Typically, dehydrogenation catalyst experiences deactivation due to loss and migration of promoters, and increasing temperature and steam flow rate are practical solutions to prevent production decay in the plant. School of Civil and Architectural Engineering, Shandong University of Technology, Zibo 255049, China. Thanks for the technical support of Hangzhou Yanqu Information Technology Co. Ltd. It can react with the oxygen and form styrene dioxide which is very lethal. Parveen, S.; Rana, S.; Fangueiro, R. A Review on Nanomaterial Dispersion, Microstructure, and Mechanical Properties of Carbon Nanotube and Nanofiber Reinforced Cementitious Composites. and G.L. Especially, the addition of 0.1% CNTs and 15% SAE by mass of cement improved the 28-day flexural strength of cement paste by 21% and 25% as compared to the mono addition of CNTs or SAE, respectively. Hu, Y.; Luo, D.; Li, P.; Li, Q.; Sun, G. Fracture toughness enhancement of cement paste with multiwalled carbon nanotubes. The details of the mix proportions are given in, The specimens for NSPC and HSPC (hybrid containing SAE and CNTs or CNTs–OH) were prepared using the following steps, and the procedure is also summarized in. [20], Styrene can be produced from toluene and methanol, which are cheaper raw materials than those in the conventional process. This derivative of benzene is a colorless oily liquid, although aged samples can appear yellowish. However, the interfacial interaction between CNTs and the cement matrix is weak. The chemical properties of cement provided by the manufacturer are listed in, Five mixes were prepared to investigate the mechanical properties and microstructure of cement paste. [57][58], InChI=1S/C8H8/c1-2-8-6-4-3-5-7-8/h2-7H,1H2, Except where otherwise noted, data are given for materials in their. [10] By 1845, the German chemist August Hofmann and his student John Blyth had determined styrene's empirical formula: C8H8. As such, the two production processes are often highly integrated. Baueregger, S.; Perello, M.; Plank, J. (1) The weighed quantity of CNT-powder (CNTs or CNTs–OH) was dissolved in deionized water and evenly stirred by using KQ410HT ultrasonic vibration (40 kHz and 200 W); (2) Adding CNTs into the prepared SAE latex and mixing by magnetic stirring (FK-H1) for 15 min at 60 °C with a rotation speed of 2000 rpm to achieve a uniform distribution of nano-materials. The remaining 1-phenylethanol is dehydrated to give styrene: Extraction from pyrolysis gasoline is performed on a limited scale. Shah, S.P. In 1845, French chemist Emil Kopp suggested that the two compounds were identical,[16] and in 1866, Erlenmeyer suggested that both "cinnamol" and styrene might be vinylbenzene. Styrene oxide is considered toxic, mutagenic, and possibly carcinogenic. The crack-bridging and pore-filling effects of networks were responsible for the enhancement of the CNT–OH and SAE hybrid solution on the mechanical properties and water resistance of cement paste. The authors are grateful for the above supporters. Orientation of carbon nanotubes in polymers and its detection by Raman spectroscopy. 1. 2. ; Metaxa, Z.S. Around 80% of styrene is produced by the dehydrogenation of ethylbenzene. Styrene (/ˈstʌɪriːn/) is an organic compound with the chemical formula C 6 H 5 CH=CH 2.This derivative of benzene is a colorless oily liquid, although aged samples can appear yellowish.The compound evaporates easily and has a sweet smell, although high concentrations have a less pleasant odor. CNTs have high aspect ratios, and the strong van der Waals attraction among the nanotubes leads to the formation of bundles. The use of microfine cement to enhance the efficacy of carbon nanofibers with respect to drying shrinkage crack resistance of portland cement mortars. The accuracy of the developed model is validated against available plant data. As shown in Fig. Tang, S.; Yao, Y.; Andrade, C.; Li, Z. Nanocomposites from styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) and multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) part 1: Morphology and rheology. As a result, the hybrid addition of CNT/SAE significantly improved the flexural strength of cement paste. ; Konsta-Gdoutos, M.S. Durability of Styrene-Butadiene latex modified concrete.

Ethane, along with ethylbenzene, is fed to a dehydrogenation reactor with a catalyst capable of simultaneously producing styrene and ethylene. Effect of CNT and CNF loading and count on the corrosion resistance, conductivity and mechanical properties of nanomodified OPC mortars. Development of the process is ongoing.

The water absorption rate (120 h) and sorptivity of HSPC were 82% and 78% lower than that of the PC, respectively. In this research, a real time optimization strategy is proposed to calculate the optimal trajectory of manipulated variables to control production and selectivity at desired level based on the optimal control theory. ; Galao, O.; Baeza, F.; Emilio, Z. [34][35] On 10 June 2011, the U.S. National Toxicology Program has described styrene as "reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen". Modeling and optimal control of conversion section of styrene plant to overcome effect of catalyst deactivation on production capacity. Review of nanocarbon-engineered multifunctional cementitious composites. In this research, a pseudo steady state model is developed based on the mass and energy balance equations to simulate conversion section of a styrene monomer production plant. [54][55][56], On 7 May 2020, a gas, reported to be styrene, leaked from a tank at the LG Chem (LG Polymers India Private Limited) plant at RR Venkatapuram, Visakhapatnam, Andra Pradesh, India. [8][9] He also noticed that when styrol was exposed to air, light, or heat, it gradually transformed into a hard, rubber-like substance, which he called "styrol oxide". The morphology and distribution of the two types of carbon nanotubes were further observed by TEM, as shown in, The effects of CNTs and SAE on the mechanical properties of cement paste were investigated, and the 3-, 7-, and 28-day flexural and compressive strengths are presented in, The porosity and pore size distribution are important indicators for evaluating the function and performance of cement-based materials. Torabian Isfahani, F.; Li, W.; Redaelli, E. Dispersion of multi-walled carbon nanotubes and its effects on the properties of cement composites. At 100 °C it will polymerise at a rate of ~2% per hour, and more rapidly than this at higher temperatures. The presence of the vinyl group allows styrene to polymerize. The compressive strength, flexural strength and capillary water absorption of cement pastes modified by CNT/SAE were tested and compared with those of pure cement paste, the cement paste containing CNTs or SAE alone. Styrene oxide is subsequently hydrolyzed in vivo to styrene glycol by the enzyme epoxide hydrolase. The results show that CNT/SAE network films could be observed in cement paste by using a field emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM).
