Addressed herein is the detailed study on in situ generation of poly(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone) (PVP) stabilized ruthenium(0) nanoclusters and their catalysis in the methanolysis of ammonia borane (AB). PVP-stabilized ruthenium(0) nanoclusters with an average particle size of 2.4 +/- 1.2 nm were generated in situ from the reduction of ruthenium(III) chloride during the methanolysis of AB in the presence of PVP at room temperature. The nanoclusters were characterized by UV-vis spectroscopy, TEM, XRD, XPS and FTIR techniques. PVP stabilized ruthenium(0) nanoclusters are highly active and stable catalyst in hydrogen generation from the methanolysis of AB with a turnover frequency (TOF) value of 4017 h(-1) and 71,500 turnovers over 25 h. Mercury poisoning experiments showed that the PVP-stabilized ruthenium(0) nanoclusters are the true heterogeneous catalyst in the methanolysis of AB. The report also includes the results of a detailed kinetic study on the hydrogen generation from the methanolysis of AB catalyzed by PVP stabilized ruthenium(0) nanoclusters investigating the effect of the catalyst concentration, substrate concentration, and temperature as well as the activation parameters of catalytic methanolysis of AB calculated from the kinetic data.

Herein, we report the preparation and characterization of rhodium(0) nanoparticles supported on hydroxyapatite (Ca-10(OH)(2)(PO4)(6), HAP) and their catalytic use in the hydrolysis of hydrazine-borane, which attracts recent attention as promising hydrogen storage materials. Hydroxyapatite supported rhodium(0) nanoparticles were readily prepared by the hydrazine-borane reduction of rhodium(III)-exchanged hydroxyapatite in situ during the hydrolysis of hydrazine-borane at room temperature. Characterization of...
Cobalt ferrite supported platinum nanoparticles: Superb catalytic activity and outstanding reusability in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia borane
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...

Hydrolytic dehydrogenation of ammonia borane catalyzed by reduced graphene oxide supported monodisperse palladium nanoparticles: High activity and detailed reaction kinetics
Kilic, Buket; Sencanli, Selin; Metin, Onder (2012-09-01)
A highly active and stable catalyst for the hydrolytic dehydrogenation of ammonia borane (AB) was prepared by supporting monodisperse palladium nanoparticles (Pd NPs) on reduced graphene oxide (RGO) via a facile method. RGO was prepared via modified chemical route and used as support matrices for monodisperse Pd NPs that were formed by the reduction of palladium(II) acetylacetonate by borane tert-butylamine complex in the presence of oleylamine. RGO supported Pd NPs (RGO@Pd) show high activity and stability...
