Herein, we report the preparation and characterization of rhodium(0) nanoparticles supported on hydroxyapatite (Ca-10(OH)(2)(PO4)(6), HAP) and their catalytic use in the hydrolysis of hydrazine-borane, which attracts recent attention as promising hydrogen storage materials. Hydroxyapatite supported rhodium(0) nanoparticles were readily prepared by the hydrazine-borane reduction of rhodium(III)-exchanged hydroxyapatite in situ during the hydrolysis of hydrazine-borane at room temperature. Characterization of the resulting material by ICP-OES, TEM, SEM, EDX, XRD, XPS spectroscopies and N-2 adsorption-desorption technique, which shows the formation of rhodium(0) nanoparticles well dispersed on hydroxyapatite support. The catalytic performance of these new supported rhodium(0) nanopaiticles in terms of activity, lifetime and reusability was tested in the hydrolysis of hydrazine-borane. They were found to be highly active, long-lived and reusable catalyst in this important catalytic reaction even at low temperatures and high initial [substrate]/[catalyst] conditions. This report also includes the detailed kinetic study of the hydrolysis of hydrazine-borane catalyzed by hydroxyapatite supported rhodium(0) nanoparticles depending on the catalyst concentration, substrate concentration, and temperature.

Ceria supported rhodium nanoparticles: Superb catalytic activity in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia borane
Akbayrak, Serdar; Tonbul, Yalcin; Özkar, Saim (2016-12-05)
We investigated the effect of various oxide supports on the catalytic activity of rhodium nanoparticles in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia borane. Among the oxide supports (CeO2, SiO2, Al2O3, TiO2, ZrO2, HfO2) ceria provides the highest catalytic activity for the rhodium(0) nanoparticles in the hydrolysis of ammonia borane. Rhodium(0) nanoparticles supported on nanoceria (Rh-0/CeO2) were prepared by the impregnation of rhodium(III) ions on the surface of ceria followed by their reduction ...
Cobalt ferrite supported platinum nanoparticles: Superb catalytic activity and outstanding reusability in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia borane
Akbayrak, Serdar; Özkar, Saim (2021-08-15)
In this work, platinum(0) nanoparticles are deposited on the surface of magnetic cobalt ferrite forming magnetically separable Pt-0/CoFe2O4 nanoparticles, which are efficient catalysts in H-2 generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia borane. Catalytic activity of Pt-0/CoFe2O4 nanoparticles decreases with the increasing platinum loading, parallel to the average particle size. Pt-0/CoFe2O4 (0.23% wt. Pt) nanoparticles have an average diameter of 2.30 +/- 0.47 nm and show an extraordinary turnover frequency of...

Herein we report the development of a new and cost-effective nanocomposite catalyst for the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane (NH3BH3), which is considered to be one of the most promising solid hydrogen carriers because of its high gravimetric hydrogen storage capacity (19.6% wt) and low molecular weight. The new catalyst system consisting of copper nanoparticles supported on magnetic SiO2/CoFe2O4 particles was reproducibly prepared by wet-impregnation of Cu(II) ions on SiO2/CoFe2O4 followed by in situ reduction...

Cobalt(II,III) oxide nanopowders are used as supporting materials for rhodium(0) nanoparticles forming Rh-0/Co3O4 nanocatalysts, which can be prepared by impregnation and sodium borohydride reduction of Rh3+ ions on the surface of the oxide support. Magnetically separable Rh-0/Co3O4 nanoparticles are isolated from the reaction medium by an external magnet and characterized using various analytical techniques. Rh-0/Co3O4 nanoparticles are highly active and reusable catalysts with a long lifetime in hydrolyti...
Nanoalumina-supported rhodium(0) nanoparticles as catalyst in hydrogen generation from the methanolysis of ammonia borane
Ozhava, Derya; Özkar, Saim (2017-10-01)
Rhodium(0) nanoparticles were in situ formed from the reduction of rhodium(II) octanoate and supported on the surface of nanoalumina yielding Rh(0)/nanoAl(2)O(3) which is highly active catalyst in hydrogen generation from the methanolysis of ammonia borane at room temperature. The kinetics of nanoparticle formation can be followed just by monitoring the volume of hydrogen gas evolved from the methanolysis of ammonia borane. The evaluation of the kinetic data gives valuable insights to the slow, continuous n...
