In this work, various precious and non-precious metals reported in the literature as the most effective catalysts for glucose electrooxidation reaction were investigated by the density functional theory (DFT) approach in order to reveal the mechanisms taking place over the catalysts in the fuel cell. The use of a single-atom catalyst model was adopted by insertion of one Au, Cu, Ni, Pd, Pt, and Zn metal atom on the pyridinic N atoms doped graphene surface (NG). beta form of d-glucose in alkaline solution was used to determine the reaction mechanism and intermediates that formed during the reaction. DFT results showed that the desired glucono-lactone was formed on the Cu-3NG electrode in a single-step reaction pathway whereas it was produced via different two-step pathways on the Au and Pt-3NG electrodes. Although the interaction of glucose with Ni, Pd, and Zn-doped surfaces resulted in the deprotonation of the molecule, lactone product formation did not occur on these electrode surfaces. When the calculation results are evaluated in terms of energy content and product formation, it can be concluded that Cu, Pt, and especially Au doped graphene catalysts are effective for direct glucose oxidation in fuel cells reactor.

A quantum chemical study of nitric oxide reduction by ammonia (SCR reaction) on V2O5 catalyst surface
Soyer, Sezen; Uzun, Alper; Senkan, Selim; Önal, Işık (2006-12-15)
The reaction mechanism for the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of nitric oxide by ammonia on (010) V2O5 surface represented by a V2O9H8 cluster was simulated by means of density functional theory (DFT) calculations performed at B3LYP/6-31G** level. The computations indicated that SCR reaction consisted of three main parts. For the first part, ammonia activation on V2O5 was investigated. Ammonia was adsorbed on Bronsted acidic V-OH site as NH4+ species by a non-activated process with an exothermic relati...
Investigation of ruthenium-copper bimetallic catalysts for direct epoxidation of propylene: A DFT study
Kizilkaya, Ali Can; Senkan, Selim; Önal, Işık (2010-09-01)
Propylene epoxidation reactions are carried out on Ru-Cu(1 1 1) and Cu(1 1 1) surfaces with periodic density functional theory (DFT) calculations. Ru-Cu(1 1 1) surface is modeled as Cu(1 1 1) monolayer totally covering the Ru(0 0 0 1) surface underneath, in accordance with the literature. It is shown that the Ru-Cu(1 1 1) surface is ineffective for propylene oxide formation since it has a lower energy barrier (0.48 eV) for the stripping of the allylic hydrogen of propylene and a higher energy barrier (0.92 ...
Synthesis of ferrocenyl quinones and ferrocenyl based burning rate catalysts
Açıkalın, Serdar; Zora, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2003)
Recently, considerable interest has been devoted to the synthesis of new ferrocene derivatives since properly functionalized ferrocene derivatives could be potential antitumor substances. For this purpose, we have investigated the synthesis of ferrocenyl quinones starting from squaric acid. Thermolysis of ferrocenylsubstituted cyclobutenones, which have been prepared from ferrocenyl cyclobutenediones and alkenyllithiums, affords hydroquinones, which furnish, upon oxidation, ferrocenyl quinones. Ferrocenyl c...
A Density Functional Theory Study of Direct Oxidation of Benzene to Phenol by N2O on a [FeO](1+)-ZSM-5 Cluster
Fellah, Mehmet Ferdi; Önal, Işık; van Santen, Rutger A. (2010-07-29)
Density functional theory calculations were carried out in a study of the oxidation of benzene to phenol by N2O on a model (FeO)(1+)-ZSM-5 cluster: the [(SiH3)(4)AlO4(FeO)] cluster. This cluster models the reactivity of Fe3+ oxidic clusters. Results are to be compared with an earlier study (J. Phys. Chem. C 2009, 113, 15307) on a model Fe2+-ZSM-5 cluster. The true activation energies for the elementary reaction step in which phenol is produced appear to be comparable. The major difference between the two sy...
Development of activated carbon/bimetallic transition metal phosphide composite materials for electrochemical capacitors and oxygen evolution reaction catalysis
Köse, Kadir Özgün; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri (2022-09-01)
Pinecone-derived activated carbon (AC) and bimetallic transition metal phosphide (TMP) composites were produced and utilized as electrochemical capacitor (EC) electrodes and oxygen evolution reaction (OER) catalysts in this study. The base transition metal (TM) was Ni for all samples, and the secondary TM was one of Fe, Mn and Co. AC serves as a porous structure for double layer formation and active sites for OER catalysis. Bimetallic TMP is utilized due to redox reactions in EC and catalytic activity in OE...
