A new type of supported rhodium nanoparticles were reproducibly prepared from N(2)H(4)BH(3) reduction of [Rh(mu-Cl)(1,5-cod)](2) without using any solid support and pre-treatment technique. Their characterization shows the formation of well dispersed rhodium(0) nanoparticles within the framework of a polyaminoborane based polymeric support. These new rhodium(0) nanoparticles were found to be the most active supported catalyst in the catalytic dehydrogenation of ammonia-borane in water at room temperature.

A moment technique for adsorption rate on metal surfaces of supported catalysts CO adsorption on Pt-Al2O3 washcoated monolith
Dogu, G; Ozkan, G; Doğu, Timur (2001-12-15)
A moment technique was developed for the investigation of adsorption on metal surfaces of supported catalysts. The technique was applied to the evaluation of adsorption rate parameters of CO on a Pt-Al2O3 washcoated monolith. The adsorption rate constants evaluated in the temperature range 273-316 K showed significant decrease with an increase in surface coverage. Results of pulse response experiments corresponding to zero coverage gave the apparent activation energy for adsorption as 21 kJ/mol. This method...
An investigation of the interaction of 4-membered rings with adjacent carbanion centers
Guven, OO; Peynircioğlu, Nihad Bekir (2002-01-01)
A series of cyclobutylcarbinyl phenyl ketones was prepared and the rates of base catalyzed hydrogen-deuterium exchange of a-hydrogen atoms were compared with those of appropriate model compounds, to test the validity of an earlier finding, which suggested that a four-membered ring, like the three-membered ring, has the ability to stabilize an adjacent carbanion center. In this study, unlike the cyclopropyl group, no clearly defined stabilization of the adjacent, carbanion center was detected by the 1-phenyl...
The preparation and characterization of gold(0) nanoclusters stabilized by zeolite framework: Highly active, selective and reusable catalyst in aerobic oxidation of benzyl alcohol
Zahmakiran, Mehmet; Özkar, Saim (2010-05-15)
Zeolite framework stabilized gold(0) nanoclusters were prepared by the ion-exchange/impregnation of Au3+ ions with zeolite-Y followed by reduction of the Au3+ ions using sodium borohydride in aqueous solution, all at 50 degrees C. The zeolite framework stabilized gold(0) nanoclusters were isolated as red powder and characterized by HR-TEM, TEM, TEM-EDX, XRD, XPS, DR-UV-vis, SEM, ICP-OES spectroscopic methods and N-2-adsorption technique. This new material was found to be highly active, selective and reusabl...
A parylene coating based room temperature wafer-level attachment method for MEMS integration with zero applied force
Beker, Levent; Zorlu, Ozge; Külah, Haluk (2014-08-15)
This paper reports a wafer-level attachment method using parylene as an interlayer material for integrating various shaped and fragile substrates into MEMS processes. In the proposed method, the substrates are placed on a handle wafer containing pillars and perforations, and coated with a standard parylene deposition process realized at room temperature, with no applied force. The substrate and the handle wafer are attached to each other via formation of a parylene interlayer. Only poor attachment is observ...
An amperometric acetylcholine biosensor based on a conducting polymer
Kanik, Fulya Ekiz; Kolb, Marit; TİMUR, SUNA; Bahadir, Muefit; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 2013-08-01)
An amperometric acetylcholine biosensor was prepared by the generation of the conducting polymer poly(4-(2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrol-1-yl)benzenamine) (poly(SNS-NH2)) on graphite electrodes. For pesticide detection, the enzymes acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and choline oxidase (ChO) were co-immobilized onto the conducting polymer poly(SNS-NH2) films using covalent binding technique. Electrochemical polymerization was carried out using a three-electrode cell configuration via cyclic voltammetry. Characteri...
