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.

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...
Direct gas-phase epoxidation of propylene to propylene oxide through radical reactions: A theoretical study
Kizilkaya, Ali Can; Fellah, Mehmet Ferdi; Önal, Işık (2010-03-05)
The gas-phase radical chain reactions which utilize O-2 as the oxidant to produce propylene oxide (PO) are investigated through theoretical calculations. The transition states and energy profiles were obtained for each path. The rate constants were also calculated. The energetics for the competing pathways indicate that PO can be formed selectively due to its relatively low activation barrier (9.3 kcal/mol) which is in a good agreement with the experimental value (11 kcal/mol) of gas-phase propylene epoxida...

Density functional theory (DFT) calculations were carried Out ill a Study of oxidation of methane to methanol by N2O on the Fe- and Co-ZSM-5 clusters. The catalytic cycle steps have been Studied oil model Clusters ((SiH3)(4)AlO4M) (where M = Fe, Co). Calculations indicate very low methanol selectivity Without water and increasing rate of methanol formation with water. These results are in qualitative agreement with the experimental literature. The methanol formation step is also found to be the rate-limitin...
