An Al2O3 sample obtained from Seydisehir Eti Aluminyum A.S was treated and characterized for its potential use as a catalyst support. Atomic absorption spectroscopy and flame photometry characterization revealed the presence of 95.52% Al2O3 , 4.44% Na2O, and 0.043% Fe2O3 in the original sample. Both gamma-Al2O3 and alpha-Al2O3 phases were identified in the crystalline structure by X-ray diffraction analysis. However, alpha-Al2O3 was found to be the phase in abundance. The BET surface area of the original sample was found to be 40.85 m(2)/g. The original sample was treated in various concentrations of hydrochloric acid to remove Na2O impurity. The acid concentration was optimized for the Na-2 O removal efficiency and surface area enhancement. The optimum HCl concentration was found to be 1 M. 1 Pt/Al2O3 catalysts prepared from these supports and a reference support (Johnson Matthey gamma-Al2O3) were tested for CO oxidation reactions. Catalysts prepared fromSeydisehir alumina showed reasonable activity for the CO oxidation reaction.

Preparation of lead zirconate titanate (Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O-3) by homogeneous precipitation and calcination
Tas, AC (1999-06-01)
Preparation of phase-pure PZT (Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O-3) powders was achieved, in the presence of urea (CH4N2O), by homogeneous precipitation. Aqueous solutions of PbCl2, ZrOCl2. 8H(2)O, and TiCl4 were used as the starting materials in the synthesis of phase-pure PZT powders. Phase evolution behavior of precursor powders was studied by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) in air, over the temperature range of 90 degrees to 750 degrees C. The morphology of the formed powders was studied by scanning electron microscopy ...

Oren, EE; Tas, AC (1998-05-06)
Aqueous solutions of lead chloride (PbCl2), zirconium oxychloride (ZrOCl2.8H(2)O) and titanium tetrachloride (TiCl4), in appropriate volumetric amounts, were used as the starting materials in the synthesis of phase-pure Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O-3 powders. Preparation of the phase-pure PZT powders were achieved, in the presence of urea (CH4N2O), by the chemical powder synthesis route of homogeneous precipitation.
The preparation and characterization of nano-sized Pt-Pd/C catalysts and comparison of their superior catalytic activities for methanol and ethanol oxidation
Ozturk, Zafer; Sen, Fatih; Sen, Selda; Gökağaç Arslan, Gülsün (2012-12-01)
In this study, two groups of carbon supported PtPd samples with different percentages of metals were prepared to examine the effects of Pd and stabilizing agents on the catalytic activity towards methanol and ethanol oxidation reactions. As a stabilizing agent, 1-hexanethiol and 1,1-dimethyl hexanethiol were used for group "a" and "b" catalysts, respectively. Cyclic voltammetry, chronoamperometry, X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, and X-ra...

The applicability of Fenton's oxidation to improve the biodegradability of a pharmaceutical wastewater to be treated biologically was investigated. The wastewater was originated from a factory producing a variety of pharmaceutical chemicals. Treatability studies were conducted under laboratory conditions with all chemicals (having COD varying from 900 to 7000 mg/L) produced in the factory in order to determine the operational conditions to utilize in the full-scale treatment plant. Optimum pH was determined...
Application of L-prolinamides as highly efficient organocatalysts for the asymmetric Michael addition of unmodified aldehydes to nitroalkenes
Naziroglu, Hayriye Nevin; DURMAZ, MUSTAFA; Bozkurt, Selahattin; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; SIRIT, ABDULKADİR (2012-01-31)
The asymmetric Michael addition of aldehydes to nitroolefins was investigated using a combination of L-prolinamide derivatives and various acidic additives. (S)-1,1'-Bi-2-naphthol was found to be the most effective co-catalyst and afforded the nitroaldehyde products with excellent yields (up to 95%), enantiomeric excesses (up to 99%) and diastereoselectivity ratios (up to 99:1).
