Water-dispersible nickel(0) nanoclusters are prepared from the reduction of nickel(II) acetylacetonate by sodium borchydride in aqueous solution and stabilized by hydrogerphosphate anion. Hydrogenphosphate-stabilized nickel(0) nanoclusters were characterized by using XPS, FT-IR, UV-Vis and NMR spectroscopic methods. As the first example of water-dispersible nickel(0) nanoclusters, they were employed as catalyst in the hydrolysis of sodium borohydride. Hydrogenphosphate-stabilized nickel(0) nanoclusters were found to be highly active catalyst even at room temperature, providing 1450 total turnovers in the hydrolysis of sodium borohydride over 4h before they are deactivated. The kinetics of the nickel(0) nanoclusters catalyzed hydrolysis of sodium borohydride was studied depending on the catalyst concentration, substrate concentration, stabilizer concentration and temperature. Hydrogenphosphate anion to nickel ratio of 1:1 was found to be optimum in terms of high catalytic activity and stability of the nickel(0) nanoclusters. Kinetic study shows that the nickel(0) nanocluster-catalyzed hydrolysis of sodium borohydride is first order in catalyst concentration and zero order in substrate concentration. The activation parameters of this reaction were also determined from the evaluation of the kinetic data. The hydrogenphosphate-stabilized nickel(0) nanoclusters provide a lower activation energy (E-a = 54 +/- 1kg mol(-1)) than bulk nickel (E-a = 73 kJ mol(-1)) for the hydrolysis of sodium borohydride.

Group 4 oxides supported Rhodium(0) catalysts in hydrolytic dehydrogenation of ammonia borane
Tonbul, Yalcin; Akbayrak, Serdar; Özkar, Saim (Elsevier BV, 2019-05-01)
Rh3+ ions are first impregnated on Group 4 metal oxides (TiO2, ZrO2, HfO2) in aqueous solution and, then reduced with aqueous solution of NaBH4 to form rhodium(0) nanoparticles (NPs) on the oxide surface. The analyses reveal that Rh(0) NPs are highly dispersed on the surface of TiO2, ZrO2, HfO2. Rh-0/MO2 (M: Ti, Zr, Hf) NPs have high activity and reusability in releasing H-2 from the hydrolysis of ammonia borane with an initial turnover frequency of 643, 198, and 188 min(-1), respectively, at 25.0 +/- 0.1 d...
Poly(4-styrenesulfonic acid-co-maleic acid) stabilized nickel(0) nanoparticles: Highly active and cost effective catalyst in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of hydrazine borane
Sencanli, Selin; Karahan, Senem; Özkar, Saim (Elsevier BV, 2013-11-13)
When hydrazine borane is added to the solution of nickel(II) chloride and poly(4-styrenesulfonic acid-co-maleic acid), PSSMA, both reduction of nickel(II) ions to nickel(0) nanoparticles and hydrogen release from the hydrolysis of hydrazine borane occur concomitantly at room temperature. Using the hydrogen evolution from the hydrolysis of hydrazine borane as reporter reaction provides valuable insights to the formation kinetics of nickel(0) nanoparticles. Nickel(0) nanoparticles are in situ formed from the ...
Rhodium(0) nanoparticles supported on hydroxyapatite nanospheres and further stabilized by dihydrogen phosphate ion: A highly active catalyst in hydrogen generation from the methanolysis of ammonia borane
Ozhava, Derya; Özkar, Saim (Elsevier BV, 2015-09-07)
Rhodium(0) nanoparticles, supported on nanosized hydroxyapatite (Rh(0)/nanoHAP), were prepared by ion exchange of Rh+3 ions with Ca+2 ions of hydroxyapatite, followed by reduction of the resulting Rh+3/nanoHAP precatalyst during the catalytic methanolysis of ammonia borane (AB) in the presence of tetrabutylammonium dihydrogen phosphate (TBAP) at room temperature. Rh(0)/nanoHAP were characterized by a combination of advance analytical techniques including ICP-OES, XRD, TEM, EDX, XPS, ATR-IR and N-2 adsorptio...

Gencer, Ayşenur; Surucu, Gokhan; AL, SELGİN (Elsevier BV, 2019-05-03)
The first principle calculations are used to investigate hydrogen storage properties of MgTiO3Hx and CaTiO3Hx (x = 0, 3, 6, and 8) perovskite compounds in cubic phase (Pm3 m). In order to examine the stability of these compounds, formation enthalpies are calculated and all compounds (except MgTiO3H6 and MgTiO3H8) are found to be stable. The second order elastic constants and related polycrystalline elastic moduli (e.g., shear modulus, Young's modulus, Poisson's ratio, Debye temperature, sound velocities) ar...
