Effect of Synthesis Conditions on the Structure and Catalytic Performance of V- and Ce-Incorporated SBA-15-like Materials in Propane Selective Oxidation

Vanadia- and/or ceria-incorporated SBA-15-like materials were prepared by impregnation and one-pot hydrothermal synthesis procedures at different solution pH values. The pH of the synthesis solution was found to have a very strong effect on the pore structure, chemical composition, and morphology of the synthesized materials. Materials synthesized by impregnation of V and/or Ce and by the one-pot hydrothermal route at pH << 1.0 showed the characteristic ordered pore structure of SBA-15. However, the materials prepared by the one-pot synthesis route at pH 1.5 gave complex pore structures with bottleneck-shaped and/or slit-like interconnected pores. Activity tests in the selective oxidation of propane showed higher activities for the V-incorporated materials than for the materials containing Ce and V-Ce. Catalysts synthesized by impregnation gave higher propane conversions. However, the propylene selectivity values were higher with the catalysts prepared by the one-pot route. An increase in the temperature from 550 to 600 degrees C led to increases in both the conversion and the propylene selectivity with the V- and V-Ce-incorporated materials prepared by the one-pot procedure at pH 1.5. For the V-incorporated catalyst prepared by this route, the propane conversion and propylene selectivity were obtained as 40% and 62%, respectively, at a space time of 0.4 s.g.cm(-3) and a temperature of 600 degrees C.


Effect of sodium carbonate on carbothermic formation of hexagonal boron nitride
Akyıldız, Uğur; Sevinç, Naci; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2010)
Effect of Na2CO3 on formation of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) by carbothermic method has been studied by subjecting B2O3-C and Na2CO3-added B2O3-C mixtures to N2 (g) atmosphere. Na2CO3 amount in the mixtures was changed in the range of 0-40 wt. %. Time and temperature were used as experimental variables. Reaction products were analyzed by XRD and scanning electron microscope. Na2CO3 was found to increase both the amount and the particle size of h-BN similar to CaCO3 [1]. Na2CO3 was found to be less effect...
Effect of pH in an aqueous medium on the surface area, pore size distribution, density, and porosity of montmorillonite
Altin, O; Özbelge, Hilmi Önder; Dogu, T (Elsevier BV, 1999-09-01)
Surface area, pore volume distribution, and porosity of montmorillonite are determined after being exposed to aqueous solutions with various pH values. For measurement, after each pH treatment the clay samples were freeze-dried in order to keep the structure of the clay same as that in the aqueous solution. Surface area and pore size distribution measurements were performed on an unmodified and four pH (2.5, 4.0, 5.5, 9.0)-adjusted clay samples using N-2 and CO2 as adsorbates. The surface area measurements ...
KOCAK, HI; ARAS, L (Elsevier BV, 1990-07-01)
The solution behaviour of Na, Ba, Zn and Al ionomers of methyl methacrylate-methacrylic acid copolymer (P(MMA-MAA)) with different ion contents has been studied by viscosity and dipole moment measurements. Two solvents with different character are chosen for viscosity measurements: dioxane (ε = 2.22) and acetone (ε = 20.7). The expected polyelectrolyte behaviour of the ionomers in acetone is reflected by the viscometric measurements. Mean squared dipole moment 〈μ2〉 values are calculated over a temperature r...
Effect of Alkyl Derivatization on Several Properties of N-Halamine Antimicrobial Siloxane Coatings
Kocer, Hasan B.; Akdağ, Akın; Ren, Xuehong; Broughton, R. M.; Worley, S. D.; Huang, T. S. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2008-10-01)
Variation of alkyl substitution at position 5 on the hydantoin ring of a series of N-halamine siloxane derivatives has been employed to better understand the biocidal activities of these compounds for use in preparing antimicrobial coatings. The alkyl derivatization of the hydantoin ring at its 5 position, while an essentially constant chlorine loading is maintained at the I position, has shown that there is little dependence of the antimicrobial efficacy against Escherichia coli O157:H7 on the alkyl chain ...
Effect of the number of cycles on the optical and structural properties of Mn3O4 nanostructures obtained by SILAR technique
BAYRAM, ÖZKAN; Simsek, Onder; GÜNEY, HARUN; İĞMAN, ERDAL; Ozer, Mustafa Murat (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-06-01)
In this study, nanostructured Mn3O4 (manganese oxide) thin films were successfully obtained by successive ionic layer adsorption and reaction (SILAR) method on the soda lime glass substrates using Manganese Nitrate (Mn(NO3)(2)) and Ammonium hydroxide (NH4(OH)) as cationic and anionic precursors respectively. Structural and morphological characterizations of the Mn3O4 films obtained at different cycles were determined using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The crystal structure...
