Synthesizing 2Mg-9Ni-Y catalyst was investigated by mechanical alloying of Mg, Ni, and Y elemental powder mixture and subsequent heat treatment. Accordingly, effects of milling time, process control agent (PCA) type (stearic acid and toluene), and heat treatment time on the powder microstructure, phase composition, and powder morphology were studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and laser particle size analyzer (LPSA). Results showed that particle size of the samples prepared by toluene were smaller than those of the samples prepared by stearic acid. Also, it was found that the ternary Mg2Ni9Y compound was not formed by mechanical milling alone. This intermetallic compound was partially formed after the heat treatment of ball milled powders for 8 h at 800 degrees C. Effect of toluene on powder particle was higher than that of stearic acid. According to XRD patterns, it seems that the amount of formed Mg2Ni9Y in the samples which were ball milled for 15 h using stearic acid and subsequently heat treated at 800 degrees C for 8 h was more than the powders that used toluene in the same conditions. Furthermore, results of hydrogen desorption tests of MgH2 doped with 10 wt% sample prepared by toluene after the desorption time of 2500 s at 300 degrees C showed that it desorbed 1 wt% more hydrogen than MgH2 doped with 10 wt% sample prepared by acid stearic.

Effects of additives on mechanical milling and hydrogenation of magnesium powders
Guvendiren, M; Bayboru, E; Öztürk, Tayfur (2004-04-01)
A study is carried out on the role of additives for structural refinement of magnesium powders in mechanical milling. Additives, namely Al2O3, SiC, V and graphite are chosen so as to cover a wide hardness range. Structural refinement after milling is studied both metallographically and in terms of X-ray line broadening. It is found that for efficient structural refinement, the additives should be chosen not on the basis of their hardness but rather whether or not they are preserved with an acceptable size d...
Effect of hydrogen ion-exchange capacity on activity of resin catalysts in tert-amyl-ethyl-ether synthesis
Boz, N; Doğu, Timur; Murtezaoglu, K; Dogu, G (Elsevier BV, 2004-08-10)
Activities of ion-exchange resin catalysts, having different hydrogen exchange capacities ranging between 5.1 and 1.3 meq H+/g, on the etherification reactions of 2M1B (2-methyl-1-butene) and 2M2B (2-methyl-2-butene) with ethanol were experimentally tested in a fixed bed reactor. These catalysts were prepared by the heat treatment of Amberlyst-15 catalysts at 220 degreesC at different durations of time and also by the synthesis of sulfonated styrene divinyl benzene cross-linked resins. Activity of these cat...
Effect of Gas Permeation Temperature and Annealing Procedure on the Performance of Binary and Ternary Mixed Matrix Membranes of Polyethersulfone, SAPO-34, and 2-Hydroxy 5-Methyl Aniline
Oral, Edibe Eda; Yılmaz, Levent; Kalıpçılar, Halil (Wiley, 2014-09-05)
This study investigated the effect of annealing time and temperature on gas separation performance of mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) prepared from polyethersulfone (PES), SAPO-34, and 2-hydroxy 5-methyl aniline (HMA). A postannealing period at 120 degrees C for a week extensively increased the reproducibility and stability of MMMs, but for pure PES membranes no postannealing was necessary for stable and reproducible performance. The effect of operation temperature was also investigated. The permeabilities of...
Effect of high-temperature on the swellable organically-modified silica (SOMS) and its application to gas-phase hydrodechlorination of trichloroethylene
Sohn, Hyuntae; Çelik, Gökhan; Gunduz, Seval; Majumdar, Sreshtha Sinha; Dean, Stacey L.; Edmiston, Paul L.; Ozkan, Umit S. (2017-01-01)
Pd catalysts supported on swellable organically-modified silica (SOMS) and high-temperature treated swellable organically-modified silica (H-SOMS) were characterized and tested for gas-phase hydrodechlorination (HDC) of trichloroethylene (TCE) conditions. The high-temperature treatment on SOMS resulted in an increase in surface area and pore diameter as well as significant improvement of Pd dispersion on H-SOMS with smaller Pd particle sizes compared to the Pd/SOMS catalyst. Although the high-temperature tr...
Effects of Sorption Enhancement and Isobutene Formation on Etherification of Glycerol with tert-Butyl Alcohol in a Flow Reactor
Ozbay, Nalan; OKTAR, NURAY; DOĞU, GÜLŞEN; Doğu, Timur (2012-07-04)
In the presented work, liquid phase etherification reaction of glycerol (G) with tert-butyl alcohol (TBA) was investigated in a continuous flow reactor using Amberlyst-15 (A-15) as the catalyst. Some experiments were also repeated in a batch reactor at autogenous pressure. Effects of feed composition, reaction temperature (70-110 degrees C), and reaction pressure (1-5 bar) on the product distribution were investigated. When flow reactor pressure was reduced from S to 1 bar, enhanced glycerol conversion and ...
