Role of synthesis media on properties of tin and copper incorporated SBA-15 catalysts and their activity in selective oxidation of ethanol

Akti, Filiz
Doğu, Timur
Hydrothermal synthesis of metal/SBA-15 catalysts were performed by adding of metal sources before or after silica precursor, as powder or after dissolving in alcohol. Novel catalysts were developed carrying out synthesis in competitive (aluminum) ion media. XRD patterns and TEM images showed that uniform hexagonal arrays of SBA-15 support were not affected with metal loadings. Metal addition and dissolution in alcohol enhanced textural and ordered properties. Proposed ion attractions in highly charged media by presence of metals could explain wall thickness increase of SBA-15. Positive effects of aluminum environment on tin loading were supported by XRD, TEM, EDS and ICP-MS. Metal incorporation resulted in drastic changes in OH stretching region and remarkable increases in Bronsted and Lewis acid sites in FTIR spectrums. Aluminum and its quantity increase in synthesis solution enhanced surface acidity. The catalysts yielded conversion values reaching to 0.95 at moderate temperatures in oxidation of ethanol. The highest acetaldehyde-which was the major product- selectivity was observed as 0.58 at 300 degrees C. Distribution of species in the reactor outlet was tried to explain by Marsvan Krevelen adsorption/desorption surface mechanism of ethanol on the active sites.


Effect of ZnO morphology on photocatalytic activity determined by no oxidation
Kahraman, Orhun; Üner, Deniz; Department of Chemical Engineering (2019)
In this thesis, the ISO 22197-1 standard test method -for assessing photocatalytic activity by NO oxidation- was used to determine the activity of a series of ZnO samples prepared by a wet chemical synthesis method. The crystallinity of the samples was monitored by XRD and the morphology of the samples was investigated by SEM analysis. NO oxidation measurements revealed that the samples having long range ordered hexagonal morphology shown better photocatalytic activity than those with flake-like morphology....
Synthesis and characterization of conducting copolymers of poly(vinyl alcohol) with thiophene side-groups and pyrrole
Sahmetlioglu, E; Yuruk, H; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Cianga, I; Yagci, Y (2004-12-01)
Graft copolymers of poly(vinyl alcohol) with thiophene side-groups and pyrrole were synthesized by electrochemical polymerization methods. Poly(vinyl alcohol) with thiophene side-groups (PVATh) was obtained from the reaction between poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) and thiophene-3-acetic acid. The syntheses of copolymers Of PVATh and pyrrole were achieved electrochemically by using three different supporting electrolytes, p-toluene sulfonic acid (PTSA), sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and tetrabutylammonium tetrafluo...
Effect of synthesis media pH and gel separation technique on properties of copper incorporated SBA-15 catalyst
Akti, Filiz; Balci, Suna; Doğu, Timur (2019-10-01)
Cu-SBA-15 catalysts were synthesized hydrothermally under acidic and slightly higher acidic conditions via solid separation by either gel filtration or evaporation. XRD (X-ray diffraction) patterns and HRTEM (high resolution transmission electron microscopy) images showed that metal loading caused little changes in the ordered structure of SBA-15. Characteristic structural SBA-15's bonds and acid sites were observed in FTIR (Fourier transform infrared) spectrums and synthesis under high pH was created chang...
Synthesis of n-(2-propylphenyl) substituted chiral amino alcohols and their usage in enantioselective diethylzinc addition reactions
Günler, Zeynep İnci; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2011)
IChiral 1,2-amino alcohols were synthesized via newly developed “intramolecular unsaturation transfer” using cyclohexanone, propargyl bromide, and various chiral amino alcohols as starting components. These amino alcohols can be potential chiral ligands for many asymmetric transformation reactions. Therefore, their effectiveness as chiral ligands in diethylzinc addition to benzaldehyde and N-diphenylphosphinoyl imines were tested. Various parameters including temperature, solvent, ligand amount etc. were sc...
Effects of Sorption Enhancement and Isobutene Formation on Etherification of Glycerol with tert-Butyl Alcohol in a Flow Reactor
Ozbay, Nalan; OKTAR, NURAY; DOĞU, GÜLŞEN; Doğu, Timur (2012-07-04)
In the presented work, liquid phase etherification reaction of glycerol (G) with tert-butyl alcohol (TBA) was investigated in a continuous flow reactor using Amberlyst-15 (A-15) as the catalyst. Some experiments were also repeated in a batch reactor at autogenous pressure. Effects of feed composition, reaction temperature (70-110 degrees C), and reaction pressure (1-5 bar) on the product distribution were investigated. When flow reactor pressure was reduced from S to 1 bar, enhanced glycerol conversion and ...
