Ethylene Hydrogenation in Pellets with Different Pore Structures, Measured in a One-Sided Single-Pellet Reactor

Argonul, Aykut
Keil, Frerich J.
The ethylene hydrogenation reaction was investigated in a kinetic turbo reactor and a one-sided single-pellet reactor. An empirical kinetic expression was fitted to experimental results taken from the turbo reactor, and the gas compositions at the catalyst centers were measured for three different pore structures by means of the singlepellet reactor. A bimodal pore model was developed and applied to the computation of the gas composition profiles inside the three pore structures. The calculated results were compared to the measurements. A distinct influence of the pore structures on the gas fluxes and concentration profiles inside the pores could be detected which demonstrates that the proper choice of the pellet pore structure is of importance for a high conversion.


Chemical vapor deposition of boron carbide
Karaman, Mustafa; Özbelge, Önder; Department of Chemical Engineering (2007)
Boron carbide was produced on tungsten substrate in a dual impinging-jet CVD reactor from a gas mixture of BCl3, CH4, and H2. The experimental setup was designed to minimise the effect of mass transfer on reaction kinetics, which, together with the on-line analysis of the reactor effluent by FTIR, allowed a detailed kinetic investigation possible. The phase and morphology studies of the products were made by XPS, XRD,micro hardness and SEM methods. XPS analysis showed the existence of chemical states attrib...
Quantum chemical simulation of nitric oxide reduction by ammonia (scr reaction) on v2o5 / tio2 catalyst surface
Soyer, Sezen; Önal, Işıl; Department of Chemical Engineering (2005)
The reaction mechanism for the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of nitric oxide by ammonia on (010) V2O5 surface represented by a V2O9H8 cluster was simulated by density functional theory (DFT) calculations. The computations indicated that SCR reaction consisted of three main parts. In the first part ammonia activation on Brønsted acidic V-OH site as NH4+ species by a nonactivated process takes place. The second part includes the interaction of NO with pre-adsorbed NH4 + species to eventually form nitros...

Bayrakceken, Ayse; Smirnova, Alevtina; Kitkamthorn, Usanee; Aindow, Mark; Tuerker, Lemi; Eroğlu, İnci; ERKEY, CAN (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
In this study, supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO(2)) deposition was used to prepare vulcan-supported Pt (Pt/Vulcan) electrocatalysts for proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs), and the effects of process variables on the properties of the electrocatalysts were investigated. The two different methods used to reduce the organometallic precursor were thermal reduction in nitrogen at atmospheric pressure and thermal reduction in scCO(2). In the former method, the maximum Pt loading achieved was 9%, and t...

Baltaci, Berk; ÇAKAL, GAYE ÖZGÜR; Bayram, Göknur; Eroglu, Inci; Özkar, Saim (Elsevier BV, 2013-08-01)
Zinc borate was prepared from the reaction of zinc oxide and boric acid in the absence or presence of cumene terminated poly(styrene-co-maleic anhydride), PSMA, added as a surfactant at varying concentrations (0.1-1 wt.% of water) to the reaction medium to investigate its effect on the growth and agglomeration of particles during reaction. Synthesized zinc borates were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) in comparison to unmodifie...
Rhodium(0) nanoparticles supported on nanotitania as highly active catalyst in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of ammonia borane
Akbayrak, Serdar; Gencturk, Serap; MORKAN, İzzet; Özkar, Saim (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2014-01-01)
Rhodium(0) nanoparticles supported on the surface of titanium dioxide (Rh(0)@TiO2) were in situ generated from the reduction of rhodium(III) ions impregnated on nanotitania during the hydrolysis of ammonia borane. They were isolated from the reaction solution by centrifugation and characterized by a combination of advanced analytical techniques. The results show that (i) highly dispersed rhodium(0) nanoparticles with sizes in the range 1.3-3.8 nm were formed on the surface of titanium dioxide, (ii) Rh(0)@Ti...
