Zirconia modified SBA-15 becomes a very active catalyst for the selective hydrolysis of cellobiose to glucose after sulfation. Spectroscopic investigations indicate the presence of Bronsted acid sites with similar properties to those present in conventional sulfated zirconia. Indications are found that the sulfate groups attached to zirconia interact with silanol groups of SBA-15. The catalytic activity in cellobiose hydrolysis correlates well with results for temperature-programmed decomposition of i-propylamine for a range of sulfated ZrO2/SBA-15 catalysts. A glucose yield of 60% during cellobiose hydrolysis at a reaction time of 90 min at 160 degrees C is obtained.


Immobilization of glucose oxidase and urease in hydrogel matrices
Gurel, I; Arica, MY; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (1997-01-01)
Immobilization of glucose oxidase and urease in hydrogels of 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylae, and N-vinyl pyrrolidone (NVP) was achieved by irradiation (using UV kand gamma-rays). The effect of radiation on entrapment efficiencies, retention of activities and swelling rates was obtained. To optimize the system, duration of exposure, reaction temperature, co-monomer concentrations, initiator and cross linker compositions were varied. The repeated reusability of the generated products was also tested. It was found...
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...
Manganese triacetate mediated regeneration of carbonyl compounds from oximes
Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Tanyeli, Cihangir; ALTİNEL, Ertan (1997-10-13)
A new method for the direct conversion of oximes into aldehydes and ketones by treatment with manganese triacetate is described. Manganese triacetate can be used for an effective and mild oxidizing agent for the regeneration of carbonyl compounds from oximes in good yield. Many functional groups are tolerated under the reaction conditions.
In situ-generated PVP-stabilized palladium(0) nanocluster catalyst in hydrogen generation from the methanolysis of ammonia-borane
Erdogan, Huriye; Metin, Oender; Özkar, Saim (2009-01-01)
Herein, we report the in situ generation of poly(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone) (PVP)-stabilized palladium(0) nanoclusters and their catalytic activity in hydrogen generation from the methanolysis of ammonia-borane (AB). The PVP-stabilized palladium(0) nanoclusters with an average particle size of 3.2 +/- 0.5 nm were formed from the reduction of palladium(II) acetylacetonate during the methanolysis of AB in the presence of PVP at room temperature. The palladium(0) nanoclusters are highly stable in solution for exte...
Synthesis and Rhizopus oryzae mediated enantioselective hydrolysis of α-acetoxy aryl alkyl ketones
Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Hamamcı, Haluk; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Akhmedov, Idris M.; DOGANEL, Fatos (1998-05-22)
Mn(OAc)(3) oxidation of aromatic ketones afforded the alpha-acetoxy ketones in good yield. Selective hydrolysis of the acetoxy ketones by the fungus Rhizopus oryzae yields (R)-hydroxy ketones in high enantiomeric excess.
