Nickel and copper incorporated MCM-41-like mesoporous nanocomposite materials prepared by the direct hydrothermal synthesis and the impregnation procedures showed highly attractive pore structure and surface area results for catalytic applications. The XRD patterns showed that characteristic MCM-41 structure was preserved for the materials synthesized following an impregnation procedure before the calcination step. The surface area of the Cu impregnated material with a quite high Cu/Si atomic ratio (0.19) was 631 m(2)/g. Very narrow pore size distributions with an average pore diameter of about 2.7 nm were obtained as a result of plugging of some of the smaller pores by Cu nanoballs. For lower metal to Si ratios (for instance for Ni/Si = 0.06) much higher surface area values (1130 m(2)/g) were obtained. In the case of nanocomposite materials synthesized by the direct hydrothermal route, MCM-41 structure was not destroyed for samples containing metal to Si atomic ratios as high as 0.12. In the case of materials containing Cu/Si and Ni/Si ratios over 0.2 wider pore size distributions and some decrease of surface area were observed.


Sulfated zirconia in SBA-15 structures with strong Bronsted acidity as observed by H-1 MAS NMR spectroscopy
Yılmaz, Ayşen; Yılmaz, Aysun; Üner, Deniz (2007-05-01)
In order to prepare high surface area highly acidic catalysts, different weight loadings of ZrO2 were incorporated in the SBA-15 structures which are subsequently sulfated by treating in 0.25 M H2SO4. The catalysts were characterized by means of TEM, XRD, N-2 adsorption, and H-1 MAS NMR. Bronsted type acidities of sulfated zirconia included SBA-15 materials were identified by a sharp H-1 MAS NMR line at 10.6 ppm. The highest acidity was obtained in the 25 mol% ZrO2 included SBA-15 catalyst with a BET surfac...
Ethylene and acetaldehyde production by selective oxidation of ethanol using mesoporous V-MCM-41 catalysts
Gucbilmez, Yesim; Doğu, Timur; Balci, Suna (2006-05-10)
Vanadium-incorporated MCM-41 type catalytic materials, which were synthesized by a direct hydrothermal synthesis procedure, showed very high activity and high selectivity in the production of ethylene from ethanol in an oxidative process. Ethylene selectivity showed a significant increase with an increase in temperature over 300 degrees C, while relatively high acetaldehyde selectivities were observed at lower temperatures. An ethylene yield value of 0.66 obtained at 400 degrees C with an O-2/ethanol feed r...
Enantioselective direct aldol reactions promoted by phosphine oxide aziridinyl phosphonate organocatalysts
Doğan, Özdemir (2015-12-15)
A series of phosphine oxide based chiral Lewis bases were screened as organocatalysts for silicon tetrachloride mediated direct asymmetric aldol reactions between cyclohexanone and various aromatic aldehydes. One of the phosphine oxide-aziridinyl phosphonate POAP-A Lewis bases formed the aldol products in up to 75% yield and with 65% ee.
Novel poly(2,5-dithienylpyrrole) (PSNS) derivatives functionalized with azobenzene, coumarin and fluorescein chromophore units: spectroelectrochemical properties and electrochromic device applications
Yigit, Deniz; Hacioglu, Serife O.; GÜLLÜ, Mustafa; Toppare, Levent Kamil (2015-01-01)
Three novel 2,5-dithienylpyrrole (SNS) derivatives containing strong chromophore units such as azobenzene, coumarin and fluorescein were synthesized to investigate the effects of chromophore substituents on the electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical properties of resulting polymers. Electrochemical and optoelectronic characteristics of the homopolymers, poly(1-(2-(4-(phenyldiazenyl)phenoxy)ethyl)-2,5di(thiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrole) (PTPTAz), poly(4-(2-(2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrol-1-yl)ethoxy)-2H-chrome...
Steady-state parallel plate apparatus for measurement of diffusion coefficient in supercritical carbon dioxide
Tuan, DQ; Yener, Meryem Esra; Zollweg, JA; Harriott, P; Rizvi, SSH (1999-02-01)
A new, steady-state experimental system for measurement of the Fickian diffusion coefficients for solutes in supercritical carbon dioxide (SC-CO2) was designed and evaluated. Mass transfer between a Liquid solute and SC-CO2 was carried out in a parallel plate geometry where a porous metal sheet, immersed in the liquid phase, stabilized the interface. The SC-CO2 flowed over the porous metal sheet containing the liquid phase which was presaturated with CO2. The use of the porous metal sheet and a thin mobile ...
