Magnetic beads were prepared via Suspension polymerization of glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) and methyl methacrylate (MMA) in the presence of ferric ions. Following polymerization, thermal co-precipitation of the Fe(III) ions in the beads with Fe(II) ions under alkaline condition resulted in encapsulation of Fe3O4 nano-crystals within the polymer matrix. The magnetic beads were activated with glutaraldehyde, and tyrosinase enzyme was covalently immobilized on the support via reaction of amino groups under mild conditions. The immobilized enzyme was used for the synthesis of L-Dopa (1-3,4-dihydroxy phenylalanine) which is a precursor of dopamine. The immobilized enzyme was characterized by temperature, pH, operational and storage stability experiments. Kinetic parameters, maximum velocity of the enzyme (V-max) and Michaelis-Menten constant (K-m) values were determined as 1.05 U/mg protein and 1.0 mM for 50-75 mu m and 2.00 U/mg protein and 4.0 mM for 75-150 mu m beads fractions. respectively. Efficiency factor and catalytic efficiency were found to be 1.39 and 0.91 for 75-150 mu m beads and 0.73 and 0.75 for 50-75 mu m beads fractions, respectively. The catalytic efficiency of the soluble tyrosinase was 0.37. The amounts of immobilized protein were on the 50-75 mu m and 75-150 mu m fractions were 2.7 and 2.8 mg protein/g magnetic beads, respectively.

Inverse relation between the catalytic activity and catalyst concentration for the ruthenium(0) nanoparticles supported on xonotlite nanowire in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of sodium borohydride
Akbayrak, Serdar; Özkar, Saim (Elsevier BV, 2016-12-01)
Ruthenium(0) nanoparticles supported on xonotlite nanowire (Ru(0)/X-NW) were prepared by the ion exchange of Rua* ions with Ca2+ ions in the lattice of xonotlite nanowire followed by their reduction with sodium borohydride in aqueous solution at room temperature. Ru(0)/X-NW show high catalytic activity and long life time in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of sodium borohydride with a turnover frequency value up to 305 min(-1) and a total turnover number of 63,100 mol H-2/mol Ru in hydrogen generatio...
Palladium(0) nanoparticles supported on silica-coated cobalt ferrite: A highly active, magnetically isolable and reusable catalyst for hydrolytic dehydrogenation of ammonia borane
Akbayrak, Serdar; KAYA, MURAT; Volkan, Mürvet; Özkar, Saim (Elsevier BV, 2014-04-05)
Palladium(0) nanoparticles supported on silica-coated cobalt ferrite (Pd(0)/SiO2-CoFe2O4) were in situ generated during the hydrolysis of ammonia borane, isolated from the reaction solution by using a permanent magnet and characterized by ICP-OES, XRD, TEM, TEM-EDX, XPS and the N-2 adsorption-desorption techniques. All the results reveal that well dispersed palladium(0) nanoparticles were successfully supported on silica coated cobalt ferrite and the resulting Pd(0)/SiO2-CoFe2O4 are highly active, magnetica...
Effect of hydrogen ion-exchange capacity on activity of resin catalysts in tert-amyl-ethyl-ether synthesis
Boz, N; Doğu, Timur; Murtezaoglu, K; Dogu, G (Elsevier BV, 2004-08-10)
Activities of ion-exchange resin catalysts, having different hydrogen exchange capacities ranging between 5.1 and 1.3 meq H+/g, on the etherification reactions of 2M1B (2-methyl-1-butene) and 2M2B (2-methyl-2-butene) with ethanol were experimentally tested in a fixed bed reactor. These catalysts were prepared by the heat treatment of Amberlyst-15 catalysts at 220 degreesC at different durations of time and also by the synthesis of sulfonated styrene divinyl benzene cross-linked resins. Activity of these cat...
