A heterogeneous nanocatalyst containing polyoxomolybdate immobilized on the internal surface of amino-functionalized SBA-15 pores was prepared and fully characterized by several analytical techniques. The textural property of supported material was found to retain important mesoporous features, compatible with its potential use as heterogeneous catalysts. The catalyst SBA-15-NH3+center dot{Mo-36}(-)shows excellent catalytic activity for the epoxidation of alkenes as compared to POM, which is attributed to the large specific surface area and highly ordered pore structure of SBA-15, allowing for easy access of reactants to the active sites and removal of products. The prepared catalyst has high recyclability performance without obvious loss of activity after six runs of epoxidation.

Yılmaz, Ayşen; Yılmaz, Aysun; Üner, Deniz (2007-05-01)
In order to prepare high surface area highly acidic catalysts, different weight loadings of ZrO2 were incorporated in the SBA-15 structures which are subsequently sulfated by treating in 0.25 M H2SO4. The catalysts were characterized by means of TEM, XRD, N-2 adsorption, and H-1 MAS NMR. Bronsted type acidities of sulfated zirconia included SBA-15 materials were identified by a sharp H-1 MAS NMR line at 10.6 ppm. The highest acidity was obtained in the 25 mol% ZrO2 included SBA-15 catalyst with a BET surfac...
Ni and cu incorporated mesoporous nanocomposite catalytic materials
Nalbant, Asli; Doğu, Timur; Balci, Suna (2008-02-01)
Nickel and copper incorporated MCM-41-like mesoporous nanocomposite materials prepared by the direct hydrothermal synthesis and the impregnation procedures showed highly attractive pore structure and surface area results for catalytic applications. The XRD patterns showed that characteristic MCM-41 structure was preserved for the materials synthesized following an impregnation procedure before the calcination step. The surface area of the Cu impregnated material with a quite high Cu/Si atomic ratio (0.19) w...
Compressive Strength and Microstructural Characteristics of Natural Zeolite-Based Geopolymer
ÖZEN KARSLI, SEVGİ; Aleessa Alam, Burhan (2018-01-01)
A detailed study of geopolymeric reaction products and mechanical properties of geopolymer pastes prepared with natural zeolite has been investigated by means of compressive strength, XRD and SEM/EDX analysis. Sodium silicate and sodium hydroxide solutions are used as an alkaline activator. The results of the investigation show that the activator ratio plays an important role on the mechanical development of geopolymer pastes. The geopolymeric gel and CSH phase with a low Ca/Si ratio are found as the main r...
Poly(methyl methacrylate) nanocomposites involving aromatic diboronic acid
Goktas, Muberra; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2019-12-01)
In this work, poly(methyl methacrylate), PMMA, composites involving various amounts of aromatic diboronic acid, BDBA, in the absence and presence of organically modified montmorillonite, Cloisite 30B, C30B, were prepared and characterized by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, thermogravimetry, and direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry analyses. Morphologic analyses indicated homogenous dispersion of additives in PMMA matrix. Increase in thermal stability of PMMA was observed as the amount of ...
Miscibility of methylmethacrylate-co-methacrylic acid polymer with magnesium, zinc, and manganese sulfonated polystyrene ionomers
Alkan, C; Yurtseven, N; Aras, L (2005-01-01)
The miscibility of methyl methacrylate-co-methacrylic acid polymer (MMA-MAA) with metal neutralized sulfonated polystyrene ionomers was investigated by viscometry, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and Fourier transform infrared radiation spectroscopy (FTIR) techniques. Polystyrene (PS) was sulfonated by acetic anhydride and sulfuric acid and the sulfonation degree was found to be 2.6 mole percent, and 2.6 mole percent sulfonated polystyrene was neutralized by Mg, Zn, and Mn salts. The miscibility be...
