Catalytically active, low-cost, and reusable transition metal catalysts are desired to develop on-demand hydrogen generation system for practical onboard applications. By using electroless deposition method, we have prepared the Pd-activated TiO2-supported Co-Ni-P ternary alloy catalyst (Co-Ni-P/Pd-TiO2) that can effectively promote the hydrogen release from ammonia-borane aqueous solution. Co-Ni-P/Pd-TiO2 catalysts are stable enough to be isolated as solid materials and characterized by XRD, SEM, and EDX. They are isolable, redispersible and reusable as an active catalyst in the hydrolysis of AB. The reported work also includes the full experimental details for the collection of a wealth of kinetic data to determine the activation energy (E-a = 54.9 kJ mol(-1)) and effects of the amount of catalyst, amount of substrate, and temperature on the rate for the catalytic hydrolysis of AB. Maximum H-2 generation rate of similar to 60 mL H-2 min(-1) (g catalyst)(-1) and similar to 400 mL H-2 min(-1) (g catalyst)(-1) was measured by the hydrolysis of AB at 25 degrees C and 55 degrees C, respectively.

Hydrogen generation from solid state NaBH4 by using FeCl3 catalyst for portable proton exchange membrane fuel cell applications
Boran, Asli; Erkan, Serdar; Eroğlu, İnci (Elsevier BV, 2019-07-12)
Being a boron-based compound, sodium borohydride, NaBH4, is a convenient hydrogen storage material for applications like unmanned air vehicles. There are several concerns behind commercialization of hydrogen gas generator by NaBH4 hydrolysis systems. This study aims to contribute to the solution of the problems of NaBH4 hydrolysis system in three main ways. First, the usage of solid state NaBH4 enables to increase the durability and the gravimetric H-2 storage capacity of the system in order to meet US DOE ...
Chemical and structural optimization of ZnCl2 activated carbons via high temperature CO2 treatment for EDLC applications
Köse, Kadir Özgün; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri (Elsevier BV, 2018-10-04)
Development of biomass based activated carbon materials for electrical double layer capacitor (EDLC) usage has gained attention as a result of requesting efficient and low cost energy storage device production. In this study, pine cone based activated carbons were produced with a combined chemical and physical activation route. ZnCl2 and CO2 were used for chemical and physical activation of the material, respectively. Activation parameters are adjusted to give different chemical and textural characteristics...
Transition metal nanoparticle catalysts in releasing hydrogen from the methanolysis of ammonia borane
Özkar, Saim (Elsevier BV, 2020-03-13)
Ammonia borane (H3N center dot BH3, AB) is one of the promising hydrogen storage materials due to high hydrogen storage capacity (19.6% wt), high stability in solid state as well as in solution and nontoxicity. The methanolysis of AB is an alternative way of releasing H-2 due to many advantages over the hydrolysis such as having high stability against self releasing hydrogen gas. Here we review the reports on using various noble or non-noble metal(0) catalysts for H-2 release from the methanolysis of AB. Ni...
PEM fuel cell degradation effects on the performance of a stand-alone solar energy system
ÖZDEN, Ender; Tarı, İlker (Elsevier BV, 2017-05-04)
After comparing fresh and degraded performances of Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) based components of a hydrogen cycle with the help of computational fluid dynamics simulations, recently established stand-alone solar energy system producing hydrogen for energy storage is investigated focusing on the effects of degradation of fuel cells on the overall performance of the system. A complete model of the system has been developed using TRNSYS, and a degraded PEM Fuel Cell Subsystem has been incorporated int...

Pd doped Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes were prepared via supercritical carbon dioxide deposition method in order to enhance the hydrogen uptake capacity of carbon nanotubes at ambient conditions. A new bipyridyl precursor that enables reduction at moderate conditions was used during preparation of the sample. Both XRD analyses and TEM images confirmed that average Pd nanoparticle size distribution was around 10 nm. Hydrogen adsorption and desorption experiments at room temperature with very low pressures (0...
