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 isolable Pd-0/PDA-Fe3O4 catalysts were characterized by a combination of advanced analytical techniques. The results reveal that palladium nanoparticles with an average size of 2.0 +/- 0.4 nm are well dispersed on polydopamine layer with a thickness of 3.0 +/- 0.5 nm on the surface of ferrite nanopowders. Pd-0/PDA-Fe3O4 with a palladium loading of 3.81% wt was found to be a highly active and reusable catalyst in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia borane with a turnover frequency value of 14.5 min(-1) at 25.0 +/- 0.1 degrees C. Magnetically isolable Pd-0/PDA-Fe3O4 catalysts preserve their initial catalytic activity even after the tenth use providing the release of 3 equivalent H-2 per mole of ammonia borane. The report also includes the results of kinetic studies on the hydrolytic dehydrogenation of ammonia borane performed at various temperatures and different catalyst concentrations.

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...

Chemically derived graphene (CDG) was prepared by hydrazine hydrate reduction of graphene oxide and used as support for palladium nanoparticles (Pd NPs) generated ex situ with controllable particle size and dispersion. The Pd NPs supported on CDG were well characterized by using a combination of advance analytical techniques and employed as catalyst in the dehydrogenation and hydrolysis of ammonia borane (AB) in organic solvents and aqueous solutions, respectively. Monodisperse Pd NPs of 4.5 nm were prepare...
