Dry reforming of methane over CeO2 supported Ni, Co and Ni-Co catalysts

Ay, Hale
Üner, Deniz
Ceria supported Ni, Co monometallic and Ni-Co bimetallic catalysts were prepared by incipient wetness impregnation method, calcined at two different temperatures (700 degrees C and 900 degrees C) and tested for dry reforming of methane reaction at 700 degrees C. The activities of ceria-based Ni containing catalysts decreased with increasing calcination temperature accompanied by a decrease in coke deposition. While Ni/CeO2 and Ni-Co/CeO2 catalysts exhibited comparable high activities, Co/CeO2 catalysts exhibited very low activity. The lower activity of Co/CeO2 catalyst was attributed to strong metal support interaction (SMSI). The SMSI effect was confirmed with TEM images showing a layer of support coating the metal particles. The diversity of the deposited carbon structures in terms morphology (straight long filaments, highly entangled and curly shaped filaments, filaments with knuckle-like structure and carbon onions) was noted. In addition to the carbon buildup, the deactivation was observed to be due to the loss of active metals in the carbon filaments.


Ethylene and diethyl-ether production by dehydration reaction of ethanol over different heteropolyacid catalysts
Varisli, Dilek; Doğu, Timur; Dogu, Gulsen (2007-09-01)
Dehydration reaction of ethanol was investigated in a temperature range of 140-250 degrees C with three different heteropolyacid catalysts, namely tungstophosphoricacid (TPA), silicotungsticacid (STA) and molybdophosphoricacid (NIPA). Very high ethylene yields over 0.75 obtained at 250 degrees C with TPA was highly promising. At temperatures lower than 180 degrees C the main product was diethyl-ether. Presence of water vapor was shown to cause some decrease of catalyst activity. Results showing that product...
Agglomerative Sintering of an Atomically Dispersed Ir-1/Zeolite Y Catalyst: Compelling Evidence Against Ostwald Ripening but for Bimolecular and Autocatalytic Agglomeration Catalyst Sintering Steps
Bayram, Ercan; Lu, Jing; Aydin, Ceren; Browning, Nigel D.; Özkar, Saim; Finney, Eric; Gates, Bruce C.; Finke, Richard G. (2015-06-01)
Agglomerative sintering of an atomically dispersed, zeolite Y-supported catalyst, Ir-1/zeolite Y, formed initially from the well-characterized precatalyst [Ir(C2H4)(2)]/zeolite Y and in the presence of liquid-phase reactants, was monitored over three cycles of 3800 turnovers (TTOs) of cyclohexene hydrogenation at 72 degrees C. The catalyst evolved and sintered during each cycle, even at the relatively mild temperature of 72 degrees C in the presence of the cyclohexene plus H-2 reactants and cyclohexane solv...
Raman Spectroscopy Investigation of Nano Hydroxyapatite Doped with Yttrium and Fluoride Ions
Yilmaz, Bengi; Evis, Zafer (Informa UK Limited, 2014-01-02)
In this study, nano hydroxyapatite doped with yttrium (2.5, 5, and 7.5mol%) and fluoride (2.5mol%) ions were synthesized by precipitation method and sintered at 900 degrees C, 1100 degrees C, and 1300 degrees C. Raman spectroscopy was applied to track the structural modifications in pure and doped hydroxyapatites. The results showed that the main characteristic band of pure hydroxyapatite at 963cm(-1) was not affected significantly by ion doping but exhibited higher intensity with increasing sintering tempe...
Polyaniline: synthesis characterization solution properties and composites
Yılmaz, Faris; Küçükyavuz, Zuhal; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2007)
Polyaniline was chemically synthesized at three different temperatures of 25, 0, and -25oC, by oxidative polymerization with ammonium peroxidisulfate at equimolar of aniline to oxidant ratio and 1M HCl. The resulted polyaniline was in a powder form which was characterized by several techniques such as: electrical conductivity, elemental analysis, thermal analysis, wide-angle X-Ray diffraction, and scanning electron microscope. The solution properties of the reduced polymer were studied by viscometry, static...
Valorization of Şırnak asphaltite and biomass
Helvacı, Veysi; Üner, Deniz; Department of Chemical Engineering (2019)
In this study, the hydrogenation and pyrolysis behavior of Şırnak asphaltite, and the synergetic effect of increasing amount of liquid product obtained from steam distillation of Şırnak asphaltite and biomass and dry reforming were studied. For that purpose, Şırnak asphaltite samples were hydrogenated and pyrolyzed and the products are analyzed. For synergetic effect investigation, steam distillation of Şırnak asphaltite with and without the presence of pepper plant biomass was performed. Results show that ...
