A moment technique was developed for the investigation of adsorption on metal surfaces of supported catalysts. The technique was applied to the evaluation of adsorption rate parameters of CO on a Pt-Al2O3 washcoated monolith. The adsorption rate constants evaluated in the temperature range 273-316 K showed significant decrease with an increase in surface coverage. Results of pulse response experiments corresponding to zero coverage gave the apparent activation energy for adsorption as 21 kJ/mol. This method allowed the evaluation of adsorption rate constant on metal sw-faces at different coverages.


The synthesis and characterization of aluminum loaded SBA-type materials as catalyst for polypropylene degradation reaction
Obali, Zeynep; Sezgi, Naime Aslı; Doğu, Timur (2011-12-01)
The performance of pure and aluminum containing SBA-type catalysts prepared using different aluminum sources and different Al/Si ratios were investigated in the polypropylene degradation reaction using a thermogravimetric analyzer. For the synthesis of catalysts, aluminum isopropoxide and aluminum sulphate were used as the aluminum sources. Synthesized materials had high surface areas and exhibited nitrogen adsorption isotherms of type IV. EDS results showed that the aluminum incorporation into the structur...
A quantum chemical study of water and ammonia adsorption mechanisms on titanium dioxide surfaces
Erdoğan, Rezan; Önal, Işık; Department of Chemical Engineering (2010)
Theoretical methods can be used to describe surface chemical reactions in detail and with sufficient accuracy. Advances, especially in density functional theory (DFT) method, enable to compare computational results with experiments. Quantum chemical calculations employing ONIOM DFT/B3LYP/6-31G**-MM/UFF cluster method provided in Gaussian 03 are conducted to investigate water adsorption on rutile (110), and water and ammonia adsorption on anatase (001) surfaces of titanium dioxide. Water and ammonia adsorpti...
One-pot synthesis and characterization of colloidally robust rhodium(0) nanoparticles catalyst: exceptional activity in the dehydrogenation of ammonia borane for chemical hydrogen storage
Ayvalı, Tuğçe; Özkar, Saim; Department of Chemistry (2011)
The production of transition metal(0) nanoparticles with controllable size and size distribution are of great importance in catalysis since their catalytic activity decreases as nanoparticles aggregate into clumps and ultimately to the bulk metal. Reducing the particle size of heterogeneous catalyst provides a significant rise in its activity as the fraction of surface atoms increases with decreasing particle size. Therefore, transition metal(0) nanoparticles need to be stabilized to certain extend in their...
The effects of alkali promoters on the dynamics of hydrogen chemisorption and syngas reaction kinetics on Ru/SiO2 surfaces
Üner, Deniz; Pruski, M; King, TS (1997-01-01)
The dynamics of chemisorbed hydrogen on unpromoted and promoted Ru/SiO2 catalysts was studied by means of single pulse and selective excitation H-1 NMR spectroscopy. Dynamic NMR studies indicated a reduced mobility of hydrogen in the presence of alkali promoters (Na and K) at high loadings (65 atomic %). On unpromoted Ru/SiO2 catalysts, the line due to hydrogen-on-metal was homogeneously broadened at pressures above 0.5 Torr H-2. Similar behavior was observed on promoted Ru/SiO2 catalyst with 66 atomic % K....
A study of catalytic nanocarbon synthesis by means of quantum mechanical methods
Tezsevin, İlker; Önal, Işık; Department of Chemical Engineering (2012)
Throughout this thesis work, surface nanocarbon synthesis on metal catalyst surfaces was investigated as the first step of carbon nanotube production mechanism. Study was aimed to make a comparison between the performances of selected catalyst surfaces and to find most probable mechanism for the nanocarbon synthesis on the metal catalyst surface. Formation of nanocarbon from the acetylene as carbon source on the selected Fe(111), Ni(111) and Ni(100) surfaces were studied by means of quantum mechanics. Densi...
