Dimethylamine-borane, (CH3)(2)NHBH3, has been considered as one of the attractive materials for the efficient storage of hydrogen, which is still one of the key issues in the "Hydrogen Economy". In a recent communication we have reported the synthesis and characterization of 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane stabilized ruthenium(0) nanoparticles with the preliminary results for their catalytic performance in the dehydrogenation of dimethylamine-borane at room temperature. Herein, we report a complete work including (i) effect of initial [APTS]/[Ru] molar ratio on both the size and the catalytic activity of ruthenium(0) nanoparticles, (ii) collection of extensive kinetic data under non-MTL conditions depending on the substrate and catalyst concentrations to define the rate law of Ru(0)/APTS-catalyzed dehydrogenation of dimethylamine-borane at room temperature, (iii) determination of activation parameters (E-a, Delta H# and Delta S#) for Ru(0)/APTS-catalyzed dehydrogenation of dimethylamine-borane; (iv) demonstration of the catalytic lifetime of Ru(0)/APTS nanoparticles in the dehydrogenation of dimethylamine-borane at room temperature, (v) testing the bottlability and reusability of Ru(0)/APTS nanocatalyst in the room-temperature dehydrogenation of dimethylamine-borane, (vi) quantitative carbon disulfide (CS2) poisoning experiments to find a corrected TTO and TOF values on a per-active-ruthenium-atom basis, (vii) a summary of extensive literature review for the catalysts tested in the catalytic dehydrogenation of dimethylamine-borane as part of the results and discussions.


Catalytic hydrolysis of hydrazine borane for chemical hydrogen storage: Highly efficient and fast hydrogen generation system at room temperature
Karahan, Senem; Zahmakiran, Mehmet; Özkar, Saim (2011-04-01)
There has been rapidly growing interest for materials suitable to store hydrogen in solid state for transportation of hydrogen that requires materials with high volumetric and gravimetric storage capacity. B-N compounds such as ammonia-triborane, ammonia-borane and amine-borane adducts are well suited for this purpose due to their light weight, high gravimetric hydrogen storage capacity and inclination for bearing protic (N-H) and hydridic (B-H) hydrogens. In addition to them, more recent study [261 has sho...

Biological hydrogen production is attractive since renewable resources are utilized for hydrogen production. In this study, a novel panel photobioreactor (1.4 L) was constructed from Plexiglas with a network of nylon fabric support for agar immobilized bacteria complex. Two strains of Rhodobacter capsulatus DSM 1710 wild-type strain and Rhodobacter capsulatus YO3 (hup(-), uptake hydrogenase deleted mutant) with cell concentrations of 2.5 and 5.0 mg dcw/mL agar, respectively were entrapped by 4% (w/v) of aga...
Copper(0) Nanoparticles Supported on Silica-Coated Cobalt Ferrite Magnetic Particles: Cost Effective Catalyst in the Hydrolysis of Ammonia-Borane with an Exceptional Reusability Performance
KAYA, MURAT; Zahmakıran, Mehmet; Özkar, Saim; Volkan, Mürvet (2012-08-01)
Herein we report the development of a new and cost-effective nanocomposite catalyst for the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane (NH3BH3), which is considered to be one of the most promising solid hydrogen carriers because of its high gravimetric hydrogen storage capacity (19.6% wt) and low molecular weight. The new catalyst system consisting of copper nanoparticles supported on magnetic SiO2/CoFe2O4 particles was reproducibly prepared by wet-impregnation of Cu(II) ions on SiO2/CoFe2O4 followed by in situ reduction...
Rhodium(0) nanoparticles supported on nano oxide crystalline materials: preparation, characterization and catalytic use in hydrogen generation from the methanolysis of ammonia borane /
Özhava, Derya; Özkar, Saim; Department of Chemistry (2018)
Ammonia borane (AB) has been considered as a chemical hydrogen storage materials, because of its high hydrogen storage capacity (19.6 wt%), nontoxicity, and stability under ordinary conditions. Hydrogen stored in AB can be liberated by thermolysis or solvolysis. Hydrolysis and methanolysis are the two solvolysis reactions producing hydrogen gas from AB. Although the hydrolysis of AB has been investigated for years extensively, the methanolysis of AB has been considered as an alternative way of releasing hyd...
Dihydrogen Phosphate Stabilized Ruthenium(0) Nanoparticles: Efficient Nanocatalyst for The Hydrolysis of Ammonia-Borane at Room Temperature
DURAP, FEYYAZ; Caliskan, Salim; Özkar, Saim; Karakas, Kadir; Zahmakıran, Mehmet (2015-07-01)
Intensive efforts have been devoted to the development of new materials for safe and efficient hydrogen storage. Among them, ammonia-borane appears to be a promising candidate due to its high gravimetric hydrogen storage capacity. Ammonia-borane can release hydrogen on hydrolysis in aqueous solution under mild conditions in the presence of a suitable catalyst. Herein, we report the synthesis of ruthenium(0) nanoparticles stabilized by dihydrogenphosphate anions with an average particle size of 2.9 +/- 0.9 n...
