Synthesis and characterization of Co-Pb/SBA-15 mesoporous catalysts

Akça, Burcu
Co and Pb are soft oxides, making them useful in partial oxidation catalysis. But it is difficult to prepare high surface area, nanometer size particles due to the low melting point of Pb. In the present study, SBA-15 samples are incorporated with Co and/or Pb at different weight loadings to provide a controlled geometry in nanometer scale via using direct synthesis method. The characterization of the synthesized samples was done by XRD, N2 adsorption isotherms, TEM images and XPS analysis. The increase in the metal loading in SBA-15 causes a decrease in the BET surface area due to the filling of pores with metal atoms. No characteristic peaks of metal oxide was observed up to 15 wt %Pb loading into SBA-15 in the large angle XRD pattern indicating that metal particles are dispersed in the SiO2 structure without accumulating and forming crystals. However, 20 wt%Pb loaded SBA-15 showed more appreciable characteristic peaks, indicating appreciable quantities of crystallites of metal oxide on the surface of silica. The introduction of high amount of cobalt and lead oxides to SBA-15 resulted in the loss of long range order of pores according to the low angle XRD patterns. The hexagonal structure of pores of SBA-15 was v confirmed by TEM images for all samples. XPS analysis indicated that binding energies of O 1s and Si 2p are almost similar in Co or Pb loaded samples, while mixed oxide loaded samples showed slightly higher binding energies which means the structure grows into a different type.


Synthesis and characterizations of N,N,N ',N '-tetrakis (diphenylphosphino)ethylendiamine derivatives: Use of palladium(II) complex as pre-catalyst in Suzuki coupling and Heck reactions

Oxidation of N,N,N',N'-tetrakis(diphenylphosphino)ethylendiamine (1) with elemental sulfur and selenium gives the corresponding sulfide and selenide, respectively, [(Ph2P(E))(2)NCH2CH2N(P(E)Ph-2)(2)] (E: S 1a, Se 1b). Complexes of 1 [(M2Cl4){(Ph2P)(2)NCH2CH2N(PPh2)(2)}] (M: Ni(II) 1c, Pd(II) 1d, Pt(II) 1e) were prepared by the reaction of 1 with NiCl2 or [MCl2(COD)] (M = Pd, Pt). The new compounds were characterized by NMR, IR spectroscopy and elemental analysis. The catalytic activity of Pd(II) complex 1d ...
Coupling of ferrocenyl chromium carbene complex with cyclobutenediones
Zora, Metin; Bekir Peynircioglu, N. (Elsevier BV, 2002-08-15)
The coupling of ferrocenyl chromium carbene complex with cyclobutenediones leads to ferrocenyl-substituted 5-alkylidenefuranones and 4-cyclopentene-1,3-diones, methyl ferrocenoate and acetylferrocene in varying amounts. The scope and limitations of these processes are investigated. In comparison with the phenyl analog, ferrocenyl chromium carbene complex has been found to be less reactive. This is also supported by PM3 calculations. The coupling of ferrocenyl chromium carbene complex with cyclobutenediones...
Synthesis of ferrocenyl pyrazoles by the reaction of (2-formyl-1-chlorovinyl)ferrocene with hydrazines
Zora, Metin (Elsevier BV, 2007-10-15)
Synthesis of ferrocenyl-substituted pyrazoles via the reaction between (2-formyl-1-chlorovinyl)ferrocene and hydrazine derivatives is described. Depending upon the substitution pattern of hydrazine, the reaction affords 1-alkyl/aryl-5-ferrocenylpyrazoles and/or 1-alkyl/ aryl-3-ferrocenylpyrazoles. The reaction appears to be general for a variety of hydrazine derivatives.
Preparation and characterization of carbon supported platinum nanocatalysts with different surfactants for C1 to C3 alcohol oxidations
Ertan, Salih; Gökağaç Arslan, Gülsün; Department of Chemistry (2011)
In this thesis, carbon supported platinum nanoparticles have been prepared by using PtCl4 as a starting material and 1-octanethiol, 1-decanethiol, 1-dodecanethiol and 1-hexadecanethiol as surfactants for methanol, ethanol and 2-propanol oxidation reactions. The structure, particle sizes and surface morphologies of the platinum were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), atomic force microscopy (AFM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). XRD and TEM results indicate that all prepared catalysts have ...
Chemoenzymatic synthesis of 2-ethyl-5-hydroxy-3- methoxy-cyclopent-2-enone
Dalfidan, Çağla; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Department of Chemistry (2005)
Chiral hydroxylated cyclopentane derivatives are important precursors for biologically active compounds. Synthesis of these types of compounds in optically pure form found increased interest in pharmaceutical chemistry. 2-ethyl-cyclopentane-1.3-dione was acetoxylated using manganese III acetate at preferred positions. Enzyme catalyzed enantioselective hydrolysis or enantioselective acetoxylation of hydrolyzed acetoxy derivatives gives the corresponding hydroxylated diketones in optically pure form.
