Herein we report the preparation, characterization and catalytic use of hydroxyapatite-supported palladium(0) nanoclusters in the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane. Palladium(0) nanoclusters were formed in situ from the reduction of palladium(II) ion exchanged hydroxyapatite during the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane and supported on hydroxyapatite. The hydroxyapatite-supported palladium(0) nanoclusters are stable enough to be isolated as solid materials and characterized by using a combination of advanced analytical techniques. They are isolable, redispersible and reusable as an active catalyst in the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane even at low concentration and temperature. They provide a maximum hydrogen generation rate of similar to 1425 mL H(2) min(-1) (g Pd)(-1) and 12300 turnovers in the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane at 25 +/- 0.1 degrees C before deactivation. The work reported here also includes the full experimental details for the collection of a wealth of kinetic data to determine the activation energy (E(a) = 54.8 +/- 2.2 kj/mol) and the effect of catalyst concentration on the rate for the catalytic 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...

This paper reports the in-situ generation and catalytic activity of nickel(0) and cobalt(0) nanoclusters stabilized by poly(4-styrene sulfonic acid-co-maleic acid), PSSA-co-MA, in the hydrolysis of ammonia borane (AB). PSSA-co-MA stabilized nickel(0) (PSMA-Ni) and cobalt(0) nanoclusters (PSMA-Co) having average particle size of 2.1 +/- 0.6 and 5.3 +/- 1.6 nm, respectively, were generated by in-situ reduction of nickel(II) chloride or cobalt(II) chloride in an aquoues solution of NaBH(4)/H(3)NBH(3) in the pr...
Tungsten(VI) oxide supported rhodium nanoparticles: Highly active catalysts in hydrogen generation from ammonia borane
Akbayrak, Serdar; Tonbul, Yalcin; Özkar, Saim (2021-04-01)
Herein, we report the use of tungsten(VI) oxide (WO3) as support for Rh0 nanoparticles. The resulting Rh0/WO3 nanoparticles are highly active and stable catalysts in H2 generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia borane (AB). We present the results of our investigation on the particle size distribution, catalytic activity and stability of Rh0/WO3 catalysts with 0.5%, 1.0%, 2.0% wt. Rh loadings in the hydrolysis reaction. The results reveal that Rh0/WO3 (0.5% wt. Rh) is very promising catalyst providing a turn...
