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 characterized by using TEM, XPS, FTIR, and UV-visible electronic absorption spectroscopy, The water dispersible laurate-stabilized ruthenium(0) nanoclusters were found to be highly active and long-live catalyst with a TOF of 75 mol H(2)/mol Ru.min and TTO value of 5900 mol H(2)/mol Ru in the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane at 25.0 +/- 0.1 degrees C.(C) 2009 International Association for Hydrogen Energy.

Dinç, Melek; Metin, Önder; Özkar, Saim (Elsevier BV, 2012-3)
Water soluble polymer stabilized iron(0) nanoclusters were prepared from the reduction of iron(III) chloride by sodium borohydride (SB) and ammonia borane (AB) mixture in the presence of polyethylene glycol (PEG) as stabilizer and ethylene glycol as solvent at 80 degrees C under nitrogen atmosphere. PEG stabilized iron(0) nanoclusters were isolated from the reaction solution by centrifugation and characterized by UV-Vis, TEM, HRTEM, XRD, ICP-OES and FT-IR methods. The particle size of PEG stabilized iron(0)...
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...
Catalytic hydrolysis of hydrazine borane for chemical hydrogen storage: Highly efficient and fast hydrogen generation system at room temperature
Karahan, Senem; Zahmakiran, Mehmet; Özkar, Saim (2011-04-01)
There has been rapidly growing interest for materials suitable to store hydrogen in solid state for transportation of hydrogen that requires materials with high volumetric and gravimetric storage capacity. B-N compounds such as ammonia-triborane, ammonia-borane and amine-borane adducts are well suited for this purpose due to their light weight, high gravimetric hydrogen storage capacity and inclination for bearing protic (N-H) and hydridic (B-H) hydrogens. In addition to them, more recent study [261 has sho...
Rhodium(0) nanoparticles supported on nano oxide crystalline materials: preparation, characterization and catalytic use in hydrogen generation from the methanolysis of ammonia borane /
Özhava, Derya; Özkar, Saim; Department of Chemistry (2018)
Ammonia borane (AB) has been considered as a chemical hydrogen storage materials, because of its high hydrogen storage capacity (19.6 wt%), nontoxicity, and stability under ordinary conditions. Hydrogen stored in AB can be liberated by thermolysis or solvolysis. Hydrolysis and methanolysis are the two solvolysis reactions producing hydrogen gas from AB. Although the hydrolysis of AB has been investigated for years extensively, the methanolysis of AB has been considered as an alternative way of releasing hyd...
Palladium nanoparticles supported on cobalt(II,III) oxide nanocatalyst: High reusability and outstanding catalytic activity in hydrolytic dehydrogenation of ammonia borane

A new palladium(0) nanocatalyst is developed to enhance the catalytic efficiency of precious metal catalysts in hydrogen generation from the hydrolytic dehydrogenation of ammonia borane. Magnetically separable Pd-0/Co3O4 nanocatalyst can readily be obtained by the reduction of palladium(II) cations impregnated on cobalt(II, III) oxide at room temperature. The obtained Pd-0/Co3O4 nanocatalyst with 0.25% wt. palladium loading has outstanding catalytic activity with a record turnover frequency of 3048 min(-1) ...
