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 presence of PSSA-co-MA. The in-situ generated nanoclusters were isolated from the reaction solution and characterized by UV-Vis, TEM, XRD and FT-IR techniques. Compared with the previous catalyst systems, PSMA-Ni and PSMA-Co are found to be highly active catalysts for hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of AB with the turnover frequency values of 10.1 min(-1) for Ni and 25.7 min(-1) for Co. They are also very stable during the hydrolysis of AB providing 22450 and 17650 turnovers, respectively. The results of mercury poisoning experiments reveal that PSMA-Ni and PSMA-Co are heterogeneous catalysts in the hydrolysis of AB. Herein, we also report the results of a detailed kinetic study on the hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of AB catalyzed by PSMA-Ni and PSMA-Co depending on catalyst concentration, substrate concentration, and temperature along with the activation parameters of catalytic hydrolysis of AB calculated from the kinetic data.

Akbayrak, Serdar; Özkar, Saim (2021-08-15)
In this work, platinum(0) nanoparticles are deposited on the surface of magnetic cobalt ferrite forming magnetically separable Pt-0/CoFe2O4 nanoparticles, which are efficient catalysts in H-2 generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia borane. Catalytic activity of Pt-0/CoFe2O4 nanoparticles decreases with the increasing platinum loading, parallel to the average particle size. Pt-0/CoFe2O4 (0.23% wt. Pt) nanoparticles have an average diameter of 2.30 +/- 0.47 nm and show an extraordinary turnover frequency of...
Palladium(0) nanoparticles supported on polydopamine coated Fe3O4 as magnetically isolable, highly active and reusable catalysts for hydrolytic dehydrogenation of ammonia borane
Manna, Joydev; Akbayrak, Serdar; Özkar, Saim (2016-01-01)
Magnetic ferrite nanopowders were coated with polydopamine which is inert against the hydrolysis of ammonia borane. Coating of ferrite powders was achieved by pH-induced self-polymerization of dopamine hydrochloride at room temperature. Palladium(0) nanoparticles supported on polydopamine coated ferrite (Pd-0/PDA-Fe3O4) were prepared by impregnation of palladium(II) ions on the surface of PDA-Fe3O4 followed by their reduction with sodium borohydride in aqueous solution at room temperature. Magnetically isol...

The simplest amine-borane, considered as solid hydrogen storage material, ammonia-borane (H(3)NBH(3)) can release hydrogen gas upon catalytic hydrolysis under mild conditions. Herein, we report the preparation of a novel catalyst, water dispersible laurate-stabilized ruthenium(0) nanoclusters from the dimethylamine-borane reduction of ruthenium(III) chloride in sodium laurate solution at room temperature. The ruthenium nanoclusters in average size of 2.6 +/- 1.2 nm were isolated from the solution and well c...
