Study of Sorption of Alcohols on High Silica ZSM-35

Babuçcuoğlu, Yurdaer
This study investigated the equilibrium sorption capacities and rates of sorption of some alcohols on Na- and/or H- form of ZSM-35 at different temperatures by gravimetric method using an electrobalance. The alcohols studied were methanol, ethanol, propan-1-ol, propan-2-ol, n-butanol. The ZSM-35 sample used in sorption experiments resulted from a study for synthesis of high silica ZSM-35 zeolite. This ZSM-35 sample was called as NaZSM-35. The influence of ion-exchange on the sorption capacity and kinetics was investigated by converting NaZSM-35 into H-form by the ion exchange method. In this method, a sufficient amount of ZSM-35 sample (200-250 mg) was mixed with 25 ml of 1 N NH4Cl solution for 24 hours at room temperature. This procedure was repeated until no Na+ was detected by a Flame Photometer. After the ion exchange was completed , the sample was washed with deionized water, filtered, dried and recalcined for the removal of the ammonia and this sample was denoted as HZSM-35. The highest sorption capacity (cm3/g) was observed for methanol on HZSM-35; 0.1656 cm3/g and the lowest sorption capacity was observed for propan-2-ol at NaZSM-35; 0.003 cm3/g. Sorption of methanol and ethanol were very rapid. The sorption capacities of other three alcohols; propan-1-ol, propan-2-ol and n-butanol, were lower and they had slower rates of sorption. HZSM-35 had greater limiting sorption capacity than NaZSM-35 for propan-1-ol, propan-2-ol and n-butanol at all temperatures.


Dynamic and steady-state analysis of oxidative dehydrogenation of ethane
Karamullaoğlu, Gülsün; Doğu, Timur; Department of Chemical Engineering (2005)
In this research, oxidative dehydrogenation of ethane to ethylene was studied over Cr-O and Cr-V-O mixed oxide catalysts through steady-state and dynamic experiments. The catalysts were prepared by the complexation method. By XRD, presence of Cr2O3 phase in Cr-O; and the small Cr2O3 and V2O4 phases of Cr-V-O were revealed. In H2-TPR, both catalysts showed reduction behaviour. From XPS the likely presence of Cr+6 on fresh Cr-O was found. On Cr-V-O, the possible reduction of V+5 and Cr+6 forms of the fresh sa...
Investigation of bioprocess parameters for glucose isomerase production by Bacillus thermoantarcticus
Haykır, Işık; Çalık, Pınar; Department of Chemical Engineering (2007)
In this study, the effects of bioprocess parameters on glucose isomerase roduction by Bacillus thermoantarcticus (DSMZ 9572) were investigated. For his purpose, firstly, in laboratory scale shake-bioreactors, a defined medium was designed in terms of its carbon and nitrogen sources, to achieve the highest glucose isomerase activity. Optimum concentrations of medium components were determined by a statistical approach, namely Response Surface Methodology (RSM). RSM defined the relationship between the respon...
Structure sensitivity of selective co oxidation over precious metal catalysts
Atalık, Bora; Üner, Deniz; Department of Chemical Engineering (2005)
In this study, the effect of Pt particle size on the reaction rate and selectivity of preferential oxidation of CO (PROX) reaction was investigated on Pt/Al2O3. 2% Pt/?-Al2O3 catalysts were prepared by incipient wetness method; the particle size of the catalysts was modified by calcination temperature and duration. Therefore, the relative amounts of low and high coordination atoms on the metal particle surface can be changed. Over these catalysts, first, the CO oxidation reaction was studied in the absence ...
Kinetic studies for the production of tertiary ethers used as gasoline additives
Boz, Nezahat; Doğu, Timur; Department of Chemical Engineering (2004)
In the present study, the kinetics studies for etherification reactions were investigated in detail. In the first phase of present study, different acidic resin catalysts were prepared by the heat treatment of Amberlyst-15 catalysts at 220°C at different durations of time and also by the synthesis of sulfonated styrene divinylbenzene cross-linked resins at different conditions. A linear dependence of reaction rate on hydrogen ion-exchange capacity was in 2M2B+ethanol reaction. However, in the case of 2M1B+e...
Comparison of Fenitrothion and Trifluralin Adsorption on Organo-Zeolites and Activated Carbon. Part II: Thermodynamic Parameters and the Suitability of the Kinetic Models of Pesticide Adsorption
LÜLE ŞENÖZ, Güzide Meltem; Atalay, Mustafa Ümit (Informa UK Limited, 2014-07-04)
The suitability of two kinetic models and the thermodynamic parameters of pesticide adsorption were investigated based on obtained data of previous studies. Kinetic evaluation indicated that the pesticides adsorption on adsorbents followed the pseudo-second-order model. Gibbs free energy (Delta G degrees), enthalpy (Delta H degrees), and entropy (Delta S degrees) were calculated for thermodynamic parameters by using linearized Arrhenius equation. The results indicated that the sorption process of fenitrothi...
