Zeolite confined palladium(0) nanoclusters were prepared by a two step procedure: incorporation of Pd2+ ions into the zeolite-Y by ion-exchange followed by the reduction of Pd2+ ions in the supercages of zeolite-Y with sodium borohydride at room temperature. Zeolite confined palladium(0) nanoclusters are stable enough to be isolated as solid materials and characterized by ICP-OES, XRD, HRTEM, SEM, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and N-2 adsorption technique. These nanoclusters are isolable, redispersible and reusable as an active catalyst in the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane solution. Zeolite confined palladium(0) nanoclusters provide 15,600 turnovers in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane at 25.0 +/- 0.1 degrees C. (C) 2009 Professor T. Nejat Veziroglu.

Palladium(0) nanoparticles supported on ceria: Highly active and reusable catalyst in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia borane
Tonbul, Yalcin; Akbayrak, Serdar; Özkar, Saim (2016-07-13)
Palladium(0) nanoparticles supported on nanoceria (Pd-0/CeO2) were prepared by the impregnation of palladium(II) ions on the surface of ceria followed by their reduction with sodium borohydride in aqueous solution at room temperature. Pd-0/CeO2 were isolated from the reaction solution by centrifugation and characterized by ICP-OES, XRD, TEM, SEM-EDS and XPS techniques. All the results reveal that palladium(0) nanoparticles were uniformly dispersed on ceria and the resulting Pd-0/CeO2 are highly active and r...

Manna, Joydev; Akbayrak, Serdar; Özkar, Saim (2016-01-01)
Magnetic ferrite nanopowders were coated with polydopamine which is inert against the hydrolysis of ammonia borane. Coating of ferrite powders was achieved by pH-induced self-polymerization of dopamine hydrochloride at room temperature. Palladium(0) nanoparticles supported on polydopamine coated ferrite (Pd-0/PDA-Fe3O4) were prepared by impregnation of palladium(II) ions on the surface of PDA-Fe3O4 followed by their reduction with sodium borohydride in aqueous solution at room temperature. Magnetically isol...

Ruthenium(0) nanoparticles supported on nanohafnia (Ru-0/HfO2) were prepared by impregnation of ruthenium(III) cations on the surface of hafnia followed by their reduction with sodium borohydride at room temperature. Ru-0/HfO2 samples were isolated from the reaction solution by centrifugation and characterized by a combination of advanced analytical techniques including ICP-OES, BET, XRD, SEM-EDS, TEM, XPS. The catalytic activity of Ru-0/HfO2 samples with various ruthenium loading in the range 0.5-5.0% wt R...

Rakap, Murat; Özkar, Saim (2011-06-01)
Herein we report the preparation, characterization and catalytic use of hydroxyapatite-supported palladium(0) nanoclusters in the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane. Palladium(0) nanoclusters were formed in situ from the reduction of palladium(II) ion exchanged hydroxyapatite during the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane and supported on hydroxyapatite. The hydroxyapatite-supported palladium(0) nanoclusters are stable enough to be isolated as solid materials and characterized by using a combination of advanced analytic...

This paper reports the in-situ generation and catalytic activity of nickel(0) and cobalt(0) nanoclusters stabilized by poly(4-styrene sulfonic acid-co-maleic acid), PSSA-co-MA, in the hydrolysis of ammonia borane (AB). PSSA-co-MA stabilized nickel(0) (PSMA-Ni) and cobalt(0) nanoclusters (PSMA-Co) having average particle size of 2.1 +/- 0.6 and 5.3 +/- 1.6 nm, respectively, were generated by in-situ reduction of nickel(II) chloride or cobalt(II) chloride in an aquoues solution of NaBH(4)/H(3)NBH(3) in the pr...
