Density functional theory (DFT) calculations were carried out in a study of C-H bond activation of methane on [(SiH3)(4)AlO4(M, MO)] (where M = Ag, Au, Cu, Rh and Ru) cluster models representing ZSM-5 surfaces. The following activity order of clusters with respect to their activation barriers could be qualitatively classified: Au >> Rh > Cu = Ru > Ag for metal-ZSM-5 clusters and Ag > Cu > Au >> Rh > Ru for Metal-O-ZSM-5 clusters. Therefore, activation barriers based on transition state calculations showed that Ag-O-, Cu-O- and Au-O-ZSM-5 clusters (4, 5, and 9 kcal/mol, respectively) are more active than all the other clusters for C-H bond activation of methane.

C-H bond activation of methane on a bridge site M-O-M- of ZSM-5 (M = Au, Ag, Fe and Cu) clusters has been performed by means of Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations with the utilization of [Si6Al2O9H14(M-O-M](2+) (where M = Au, Ag, Fe and Cu) cluster models representing ZSM-5 surfaces. According to the activation barrier data based on TS calculations. The following activity order of clusters with respect to their activation barriers could be classified: Ag approximate to Au > Cu Fe for Metal-O-Metal...
N2O decomposition on Fe- and Co-ZSM-5: A density functional study
Fellah, Mehmet Ferdi; Önal, Işık (2008-09-30)
Density functional theory (DFT) calculations are employed to study N2O decomposition on relaxed [(SiH3)(4)AlO4M] (where M = Fe, Co) cluster models representing Fe- and Co-ZSM-5 surfaces and Fe-ZSM-5 channel cluster. The catalytic cycle steps are completed both for Fe- and Co-ZSM-5 clusters. It is found that the general trend of the results obtained is in agreement with experimental and theoretical literature: Co-ZSM-5 has a lower activation energy barrier than Fe-ZSM-5 and O-2 desorption step is the rate-li...
Catalytic oxidation of nitrogen containing compounds for nitrogen determination
Karakaş, Gürkan (2019-02-15)
The high temperature catalytic oxidation (HTCO) performance of Al2O3 supported Pt, Cu, Cu-Ce and Fe catalysts were systematically studied with a perspective of selective oxidation of nitrogenous compounds to nitric oxide for quantitative determination of bound nitrogen. The catalyst samples were prepared via impregnation and characterized by XRD and BET. In addition, temperature programmed reaction experiments with acetonitrile and oxygen were conducted to evaluate the catalytic activity and selectivity tow...
Rheological characterization of polyethylene glycol based TiO2 nanofluids
YAPICI, KERİM; KEKLİKCİOĞLU ÇAKMAK, NEŞE; Ilhan, Naciye; Uludağ, Yusuf (2014-11-01)
Rheological characterization of TiO2 nanoparticle dispersions in polyethylene glycol (PEG 200) is presented over 1-10 wt% particle mass fraction range in terms of shear viscosity, thixotropy and linear viscoelasticity. A stress controlled rheometer fitted by a cone-and-plate system was employed for the rheological measurements between -10 degrees C and 40 degrees C. The non-linear viscoelastic experiments revealed that TiO2-PEG 200 nanofluid exhibits a shear thinning behavior when particle mass fraction exc...
Activation of light alkanes on pure and Fe and Al doped silica clusters: A density functional and ONIOM study
Fellah, Mehmet Ferdi; Önal, Işık (2007-01-01)
C-H bond activation was studied by use of density functional theory (DFT) and ONIOM calculations as implemented in Gaussian 2003 at the B3LYP level utilising 6-31G* as the basis set for Si, Al, and Fe atoms and 3-21G** as the basis set for O and H atoms. Relative energy profiles were determined for pure silica modeled by a Si7O21 cluster and Fe and Al doped silica clusters via coordinate driving calculations. The activation barriers for C-H bond activation of methane and ethane decrease with the substitutio...
