Water-soluble poly(4-styrenesulfonic acid-co-maleic acid), PSSA-co-MA, stabilized ruthenium(0) and palladium(0) nanoclusters were for the first time prepared in situ from the reduction of ruthenium(III) chloride and potassium tetrachloropalladate(II), respectively, by ammonia-borane during its hydrolysis at room temperature. PSSA-co-MA stabilized ruthenium(0) and palladium(0) nanoclusters having average particle size of 1.9 +/- 0.5 and 3.5 +/- 1.6 nm, respectively, were isolated from the reaction solution and characterized by TEM and UV-visible electronic absorption spectroscopy. PSSA-co-MA stabilized ruthenium(0) and palladium(0) nanoclusters are highly active catalysts for hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane at low temperature. PSSA-co-MA stabilized ruthenium(0) and palladium(0) nanoclusters provide 51,720 and 8720 turnovers, respectively, in the hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane at 25 degrees C before deactivation. Catalytic hydrolysis of ammonia-borane is first order with respect to the catalyst concentration, but zero order with respect to the substrate concentration in the case of both ruthenium(0) and palladium(0) nanoclusters. Activation energies for the hydrolysis of ammonia-borane in the presence of PSSA-co-MA stabilized ruthenium(0) or palladium(0) nanoclusters (54 +/- 2 kJ mol(-1) and 44 +/- 2 kJ mol(-1), respectively) are smaller than most of the values reported for the same reaction in the presence of other catalyst systems.

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)...

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...

Erdogan, Huriye; Metin, Onder; Özkar, Saim (2011-07-19)
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 FTI...

Water-soluble PVP-stabilized nickel(0) nanclusters in particle size of 3.6 +/- 1.6 nm were synthesized by using a modified version Of alcohol reduction method and characterized by TEM, XPS and FT-IR. PVP polymer is coordinated to the nanoclusters surface through some of the carbonyl groups as concluded from a comparative FT-IR spectral study. The PVP-stabilized nickel(0) nanoclusters are very stable in solution and yet highly active catalyst providing 8700 turnovers of hydrogen gas generation from the hydro...
Flame retardancy of polyamide compounds and micro/nano composites
Gündüz, Hüseyin Özgür; Kaynak, Cevdet; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2009)
In the first part of this dissertation, glass fiber reinforced/unreinforced polyamide 6 (PA6) and polyamide 66 (PA66) were compounded with three different flame retardants, which were melamine cyanurate, red phosphorus and brominated epoxy with antimony trioxide, by using an industrial scale twin screw extruder. Then, to investigate flame retardancy of these specimens, UL-94, Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI) and Mass Loss Cone Calorimeter (MLC) tests were carried out. In addition to flammability tests, thermogra...
