Herein, we report the in situ generation, isolation and characterization of cobalt(0) nanoparticles, stabilized by poly(4-styrenesulfonic acid-co-maleic acid), PSSMA, and their catalytic activity in the hydrolysis of hydrazine borane (HB). Cobalt(0) nanoparticles having average particle size of 3.1 +/- 0.5 nm were prepared by in situ reduction of cobalt(II) chloride in aqueous solution of hydrazine borane in the presence of PSSMA, isolated magnetically from the catalytic reaction solution using a magnet, and characterized by UV-Vis, TEM, EDX, XPS and ATR-IR techniques. PSSMA-stabilized cobalt(0) nanoparticles were found to be highly active catalyst in the hydrolysis of HB releasing nearly 3.0 equivalents of H-2 gas. They provide an initial turnover frequency of TOF = 370 h(-1) (6.2 min(-1)) for the hydrolysis of HB at 25.0 +/- 0.5 degrees C. They are also long-lived catalyst providing 3070 turnovers in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of NB over 45 h at room temperature. Our report also includes (i) the collection of wealthy kinetic data to demonstrate the effect of hydrazine borane and catalyst concentrations on the hydrogen generation rate and to determine the rate law for the catalytic hydrolysis of HB, (ii) the investigation of the effect of temperature on the rate of hydrogen generation and determination of activation parameters (E-a, Delta H-#, and Delta S-#) for the catalytic hydrolysis of HB, (iii) the results of poisoning experiments and filtration tests showing that cobalt(0) nanoparticles are the kinetically competent heterogeneous catalyst. PSSMA-stabilized cobalt(0) nanoparticles are isolable, redispersible in water, reusable and long-lived catalyst in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of HB.

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...
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...
Oleylamine-Stabilized Copper(0) Nanoparticles: An Efficient and Low-Cost Catalyst for the Dehydrogenation of Dimethylamine Borane
DUMAN, SİBEL; Özkar, Saim (2017-07-07)
Copper(0) nanoparticles, in situ generated from the reduction of copper(II) 2-ethylhexanoate during the dehydrogenation of dimethylamine borane (DMAB) at 50.0 +/- 0.1 degrees C in toluene solution, are active catalysts in hydrogen generation from DMAB, but not very stable against agglomeration. Addition of 5.0 equivalents of oleylamine (OAm) was found to stabilize copper(0) nanoparticles noticeably, while maintaining high catalytic activity. Oleylamine-stabilized copper(0) nanoparticles could be isolated fr...
Tungsten(VI) oxide supported rhodium nanoparticles: Highly active catalysts in hydrogen generation from ammonia borane
Akbayrak, Serdar; Tonbul, Yalcin; Özkar, Saim (2021-04-01)
Herein, we report the use of tungsten(VI) oxide (WO3) as support for Rh0 nanoparticles. The resulting Rh0/WO3 nanoparticles are highly active and stable catalysts in H2 generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia borane (AB). We present the results of our investigation on the particle size distribution, catalytic activity and stability of Rh0/WO3 catalysts with 0.5%, 1.0%, 2.0% wt. Rh loadings in the hydrolysis reaction. The results reveal that Rh0/WO3 (0.5% wt. Rh) is very promising catalyst providing a turn...

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.
