Zeolite framework stabilized rhodium(0) nanoclusters; were prepared by a two steps procedure: incorporation of Rh3+ ions into the Zeolite-Y by ion-exchange followed by in situ reduction of Rh3+ ions during the catalytic hydrolysis of ammonia-borane. They are stable enough to be isolated as solid materials and characterized by HRTEM, XPS, XRD, SEM, EDX, and N-2 adsorption. These nanoclusters are isolable, bottleable, redispersible, and reusable as an active catalyst in the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane even at low temperatures. Zeolite framework stabilized rhodium(0) nanoclusters; provide exceptional catalytic activity (TOF = 92 mol H-2/mol Rh min) and unprecedented lifetime (TTON = 47200 mol H-2/mol Rh) in the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane at 25 +/- 0.1 degrees C.

Zeolite confined palladium(0) nanoclusters as effective and reusable catalyst for hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane
Rakap, Murat; Özkar, Saim (2010-02-01)
Zeolite confined palladium(0) nanoclusters were prepared by a two step procedure: incorporation of Pd2+ ions into the zeolite-Y by ion-exchange followed by the reduction of Pd2+ ions in the supercages of zeolite-Y with sodium borohydride at room temperature. Zeolite confined palladium(0) nanoclusters are stable enough to be isolated as solid materials and characterized by ICP-OES, XRD, HRTEM, SEM, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and N-2 adsorption technique. These nanoclusters are isolable, redispersible a...
VERTEX PARTITIONING BASED MULTIPLE DESCRIPTION CODING OF 3D DYNAMIC MESHES
Bici, M. Oguz; Stefanoski, Nikolce; Akar, Gözde (2009-05-06)
In this paper, we propose a Multiple Description Coding (MDC) method for reliable transmission of compressed time consistent 3D dynamic meshes. It trades off reconstruction quality for error resilience to provide the best expected reconstruction of 3D mesh sequence at the decoder side. The method is based on partitioning the mesh vertices into two sets and encoding each set independently by a 3D dynamic mesh coder. The encoded independent bitstreams or so-called descriptions are transmitted independently. T...
Multinucleon transfer in Ni-58+Ni-60 and Ni-60+Ni-60 in a stochastic mean-field approach
Yilmaz, B.; Ayik, S.; Yılmaz, Osman; Umar, A. S. (2018-09-07)
The multinucleon exchange mechanism in Ni-58 + Ni-60 and Ni-60 + Ni-60 collisions is analyzed in the framework of the stochastic mean-field approach. The results of calculations are compared with the time-dependent random-phase approximation (TDRPA) calculations and the recent data of Ni-58 + Ni-60. A good description of the data and a relatively good agreement with the TDRPA calculations are found.
OPTIMUM DESIGN OF DISCRETE TRANSMIT PHASE ONLY BEAMFORMER
Demir, Özlem Tuğfe; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2013-09-13)
Transmit beamformer design usually results suboptimum bearnformers in multicast scenario. In this paper, discrete phase only beamformer design is considered. The design problem is cast in such a form that the solution is always feasible and optimum beamformer can be found using the branch and cut algorithm. Beamformer phase terms and their interrelations are expressed with a set of cosine vectors which lead to linear set of constraint equations that can be solved with mixed integer linear prograrmning. It i...
Marching distance functions for smooth control of hyperbolic grids
Durmus, G; Kavsaoglu, MS (2000-10-01)
The smooth control of hyperbolic grids is achieved by using marching distance functions. The marching distance can be expressed as a function of grid control. The derivative expressions of the linearized hyperbolic equations are approximated by second order central differences.
