Herein, we report the results of our study on the homogeneous catalytic dehydrogenation of dimethylamine borane in the presence of Ru(acac)(3) and oleylamine (OAm) in toluene solution. The precatalyst system comprising Ru(acac)(3) and 3 equivalent OAm shows the high catalytic activity in hydrogen generation from dimethylamine borane solution. Monitoring the hydrogen evolution shows the presence of an induction period during which the homogeneous catalyst is formed, and then the hydrogen evolution continues almost linearly until the complete dehydrogenation of dimethylamine borane. UV-vis spectroscopic observation implies on the formation of a ruthenium(II)species. Using UV-vis, FTIR, Mass, H-1 and C-13 NMR spectroscopies we could identify the presence of trans-[Ru(acac)(2)(OAm)(2)] in the solid residue obtained after the catalytic reaction. This complex might be a stable form of the active catalyst as it shows similar catalytic activity in dehydrogenation of dimethylamine borane as before. The precatalyst system comprising Ru(acac)(3) and 3 equivalent OAm provides 15,000 turnovers over 8 days with a constant turnover frequency of TOP = 77.8 h(-1) in hydrogen generation from the dehydrogenation of dimethylamine borane in toluene solution at 60.0 +/- 0.1 degrees C. Adding 3 equivalent OAm per Ru into the precatalyst solution increases the catalytic activity by a factor of similar to 5 and the lifetime of the catalyst by a factor of >9 compared to the ones obtained by using sole Ru(acac)(3). Kinetics of catalytic dehydrogenation of dimethylamine borane starting with Ru(acac)(3) and 3 equivalent OAm in toluene solution were studied depending on catalyst concentration, substrate concentration and temperature. The catalytic reaction was found to be first-order with respect to each of both Ru(acac)(3) and dimethylamine borane concentrations. The activation energy for the catalytic dehydrogenation is E-a = 58 +/- 2 kJ/mol. (C) 2015 Published by Elsevier B.V.

A New Homogeneous Catalyst for the Dehydrogenation of Dimethylamine Borane Starting with Ruthenium(III) Acetylacetonate
Barin, Ebru Unel; Masjedi, Mehdi; Özkar, Saim (2015-06-01)
The catalytic activity of ruthenium(III) acetylacetonate was investigated for the first time in the dehydrogenation of dimethylamine borane. During catalytic reaction, a new ruthenium(II) species is formed in situ from the reduction of ruthenium(III) and characterized using UV-Visible, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), H-1 NMR, and mass spectroscopy. The most likely structure suggested for the ruthenium(II) species is mer-[Ru(N2Me4)(3)(acac)H]. Mercury poisoning experiment indicates that the catalytic dehy...
Novel homogeneous catalyst comprising ruthenium and trimethylphosphite for the hydrolysis of sodium borohydride
Masjedi, Mehdi; Yildirim, Leyla Tatar; Özkar, Saim (2012-03-01)
Homogeneous catalytic hydrolysis of sodium borohydride starting with Ru(acac)(3) (acac = acetylacetonate) and P(OMe)(3) was followed by monitoring the hydrogen evolution and the UV-vis electronic absorption spectra which shows the conversion of all ruthenium(III) to a ruthenium(II) species, most likely acting as catalyst. This active catalyst is alive only under reducing conditions and converted mainly to Ru(acac)(3) along with other minor complexes when the catalytic reaction is over. A ruthenium(II) compl...

Karahan, Senem; Özkar, Saim (2015-02-09)
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, an...
Hydroxyapatite-supported palladium(0) nanoclusters as effective and reusable catalyst for hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane
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...
