Sorption properties of synthetic ferrierite

Limiting sorption volumes of the hydrogen form of a synthetic ferrierite sample were determined for sorbates-water, methanol, propane, hexane, and o-, m-, p-xylenes-at 298 K and at a relative pressure of P/P-o= 0.5 using a gravimetric sorption apparatus. Methanol, which has a kinetic diameter significantly smaller than the pore dimensions, was sorbed relatively rapidly and by the greatest amount. The sorption rates of other sorbates were very slow and for some it took several days for equilibrium to be established. The results indicated that, although their kinetic diameters are similar, the adsorption behavior of propane and hexane are quite different. Hexane is able to fill only ten-membered ring channels whereas propane is able to fill both ten- and eight-membered ring channels, at least partially. The inability of the hexane molecules to be sorbed into eight-membered ring channels is attributed to chain length effect. Xylene isomers are sorbed by the H-ferrierite but to smaller extents, consistent with the significantly larger kinetic diameters of these molecules compared to the reported pore dimensions of ferrierite. Among the xylene isomers, p-xylene, with the smallest kinetic diameter of three isomers, is sorbed to a greater extent than either o-xylene or m-xylene.

Bezgin, Buket; CİHANER, ATİLLA; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Elsevier BV, 2008-09-01)
Poly(9-fluorenecarboxylic acid) (PFCA) was synthesized by electrochemical oxidation of 9-fluorenecarboxylic acid (FCA) using a mixture of nitromethane and boron trifluoride diethyl etherate as the solvent and tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate as the supporting electrolyte. An insoluble and conducting brownish-orange film was deposited on the electrode surface, both during repetitive cycling and constant potential electrolysis at 1.15 V. Characterization of the polymer film has been carried out using Four...

Molecular dynamics simulations are performed to determine the solubility and diffusion coefficient of carbon dioxide and nitrogen in poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA). The solubilities of CO2 in the polymer are calculated employing our grand canonical ensemble simulation method, fixing the target excess chemical potential of CO2 in the polymer and varying the number of CO2 molecules in the polymer matrix till establishing equilibrium. It is shown that the calculated sorption isotherms of CO2 in PMMA, employi...
Sorption-Enhanced Reforming of Ethanol over Ni- and Co-Incorporated MCM-41 Type Catalysts
Gunduz, Seval; Doğu, Timur (2012-07-04)
Ni- and Co-incorporated MCM-41 type mesoporous materials with Ni/Si and Co/Si molar ratios of 0.12 were synthesized, characterized, and tested in both steam reforming of ethanol (SRE) and sorption-enhanced steam reforming of ethanol (SESRE) reactions. Characterization results showed that Co and Ni were successfully incorporated and well-dispersed in the mesoporous MCM-41 support. Ni- and Co-incorporated MCM-41 catalysts had surface area values of 449.0 and 303.6 m(2)/g, respectively. They also had narrow po...
Solid-state synthesis and X-ray diffraction studies of Na2S
Kizilyalli, M.; Bilgin, M.; Kizilyalli, H.M. (Elsevier BV, 1990-4)
Na2S was synthesized by a new solid-gas reaction of Na2CO3 with a sulfidizing gas mixture and a solid-solid reaction of carbon with Na2SO4. The reaction products were analyzed by X-ray powder diffraction and IR methods. Two new crystal modifications of Na2S were identified in addition to the previously reported antifluorite structure. They were designated as cubic Form II and orthorhombic Form III. The approximate unit cell dimensions were found to be a = 11.29 Å for the cubic form and a = 15.94, b = 16.00,...
Electrochemical Behavior of Hydrazine Borane in Methanol Solution
Ozhava, Derya; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Özkar, Saim (The Electrochemical Society, 2014-01-01)
Electrochemical behavior of hydrazine borane (HB) was investigated on gold electrode in 0.5 M LiClO4 solution in methanol using cyclic voltammetry, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and chronoamperometry. Two irreversible peaks at 164 and 530 mV are attributed to direct electro-oxidation of HB on gold electrode in methanol. Both EIS results and CV data at different scan rates indicate a diffusion controlled electron transfer reaction. Furthermore, the Tafel slope (b = 0.191 V) and charge transfer...
