Mesoporous SSZ-13 synthesis via accelerated hydrolysis and condensation of tetraethyl orthosilicate

SSZ-13 is a small pore zeolite having a chabazite (CHA) framework having eightmembered-ring (8MR) pore openings (3.8 Å × 3.8 Å). Due to its superior hydrothermal stability [1] and high activity, SSZ-13 is employed several reactions such as selective catalytic reduction (SCR) reaction [2,3], methylamine synthesis [4], methanol to dimethyl ether [5], methanol to olefin [6], ethanol to olefin [7], methane to methanol [8,9] conversion reactions. However, in complex reaction systems such as methanol to olefin production, the fast buildup of carbonaceous species in the small cages shortens the lifetime of SSZ-13 and motivates research for production of mesoporous SSZ-13. There have been an increasing number of reports for the last 10 years for mesopore addition to SSZ-13 including bottom-up and top-down approaches such as crystallization control [10] and mesoporogen addition techniques [11] or desilication approach [12,13]. Majority of the reports for mesoporous SSZ-13 synthesis aims improved mass transfer kinetics and enhanced lifetime in methanol to olefin reaction [14,15]. Here, we investigate the mesopore and crystal size effect on the secondary reactions in direct methane conversion to methanol in continuous processes by synthesizing mesoporous SSZ-13 using accelerated hydrolysis and condensation of TEOS.

Polyethylene oxide-hydroxyapatite composite and microporous polyethylene oxide-polymethacrylic acid polymer complex preparation and characterization
Banat, Raid M I; Tinçer, Teoman; Department of Chemistry (2002)
The first part of this study covers the crosslinking of polyethylene oxide (PEO) and its composite with calcium hydroxyapatite (HA) and their mechanical, swelling and morphological properties. Sheets of neat PEO (two different molecular weights) and composites of PEO-HA were prepared by compression molding. The composites and PEO thick sheets were crosslinked with exposure of UV- irradiation in presence of acetophenone (AP) for different periods of time. This simple method of crosslinking, UV-irradiation in...
Covalent immobilization of invertase on chemically activated poly (styrene-2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) microbeads
A carrier for invertase enzyme was synthesized from styrene (S) and 2- hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) in the form of microbeads. These poly (styrene-2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate), P(S-HEMA) microbeads were activated by epichlorohydrin (ECH) treatment for covalent immobilization. The free and immobilized invertase were assayed in the hydrolysis of sucrose to glucose, and the obtained results were compared. The optimum pH was 4.5 for free and 5.5 for immobilized invertase. The optimum temperature of invertas...
Polypyrrole grafts with poly[(methyl methacrylate)-co-(2-(N-pyrrolyl) ethyl methacrylate)]
Balci, N; Akbulut, Ural; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Stanke, D; Hallensleben, ML (1997-10-01)
Conducting polymer grafts of pyrrole and poly[(methyl methacrylate)-co-(2-(N-pyrrolyl) ethyl methacrylate)] containing 0.7% PEMA units were prepared by potentiostatic anodic polymerization of pyrrole in different electrolytic media. Grafting between copolymer and pyrrole was achieved in media where tetrabutylammonium fluoroborate and sodium perchlorate were used as the supporting electrolytes. Characterizations were made by using FT-IR, DSC, TGA, SEM, CV, and elemental analysis. The conductivities of the re...
Distyryl-boradiazaindacenes: facile synthesis of novel near IR emitting fluorophores
Dost, Zeynep; Atilgan, Serdar; Akkaya, Engin U. (Elsevier BV, 2006-09-04)
Boradiazaindacenes with methyl substituents at 3 and 5 positions were for the first time shown to undergo efficient double condensation reactions with an aromatic aldehyde yielding a series of extended conjugation dyes. These new fluorophores have absorption maxima in the range of 650-660 nm. The dyes reported here have large quantum yields with 20 nm Stokes' shifted emission peaks. The straightforward synthesis of such red shifted BODIPY derivatives is important in relation to the synthesis of novel and us...
Sorption Efficiency of Chitosan Nanofibers toward Metal Ions at Low Concentrations
Horzum, Nesrin; Boyacı, Ezel; Eroglu, Ahmet E.; Shahwan, Talal; Demir, Mustafa M. (2010-12-01)
Chitosan fibers showing narrow diameter distribution with a mean of 42 nm were produced by electrospinning and utilized for the sorption of Fe(III), Cu(II), Ag(I), and Cd(II) ions from aqueous solutions. The ion concentrations in the supernatant solutions were determined using inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). The filtration efficiency of the fibers toward these ions was studied by both batch and microcolumn methods. High efficiency in sorption of the metal ions was obtained in the both...
