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.


Direct hydrothermal synthesis of palladium-incorporated silicate-structured mesoporous catalysts
Sener, Canan; Doğu, Timur; Dogu, Guelsen (2007-01-01)
Pd-Si-structured novel mesoporous nanocomposite catalytic materials, having quite high Pd/Si ratios, were synthesized by an acidic direct hydrothermal synthesis route. The nanocomposite catalytic materials were then characterized by XRD, XPS, EDS, nitrogen adsorption, and SEM techniques. Unlike MCM-41, the XRD patterns indicated a rather wide d((100)) band at a 2 theta value of about 1.9. The materials, with very high Pd/Si wt ratios between 1.43 and 2.66, were synthesized and had BJH surface area values be...
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...
Chain-extended bismaleimides .1. Preparation and characterization of maleimide-terminated resins
Yerlikaya, Z; Oktem, Z; Bayramlı, Erdal (1996-01-03)
Starting from aromatic diamines, a series of bismaleimides (BMIs) and maleimide-terminated structural resins were prepared in solution and characterized. Maleimide-terminated resins were prepared through Michael addition reaction with 3/2 molar ratio of bismaleimide and aromatic diamine as reactants. The structural analysis was performed by FTIR and H-1-NMR spectroscopy. Thermal properties are investigated by TGA, DTA, and DSC. Number-average molecular-weights of the resins were determined by cryoscopy. The...
Photovoltaic Properties of Poly(Triphenylamine-Thiazolo[5,4-d] Thiazole) Copolymer Dye in Bulk-Hetorojunction Organic Solar Cells
Olgun, Ugursoy; Gulfen, Mustafa; HIZALAN, Gonul; Çırpan, Ali; Toppare, Levent Kamil (2017-04-01)
In this study, the photovoltaic properties of poly(triphenylamine-thiazolo[5,4-d]thiazole) alternating copolymer dye in bulk heterojunction polymer solar cells were examined. The copolymer is a red colored dye material with high thermal stability, good solubility and low-band gap energy. The band gap energy of the polymer was determined as 1.36 eV. The conductivity of the polymer thin film was measured as 1.5x10(-5) S/cm. The polymer solar cells were fabricated using the different ratios of the blends of th...
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 ...
