The high cost of Pt based catalyst for aqueous phase reforming (APR) reaction makes it advantageous to develop less cost of other metals for the same reaction. APR is hydrogen production process from biomass-derived source at mild condition near 500 K and firstly reported by Dumesic and co-worker. The use of hydrogen as environmentally friendly energy carrier has been massively encouraged over the last year. When hydrogen is used in fuel cell for power generation, it produces a little or no pollutants. The aim of this study is to study the effect of some precious metal catalysts for APR process. Due to investigation of metal catalysts for APR process, four precious metals (Cu, Co, Zn, Ni) supported on γ-Al2O3 with 20% feeding amount have been successfully prepared by impregnation method. Those precious metals were identified as promising catalysts for APR. The catalysts were characterized by N2 physisorption at 77 K, X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and Fourier Transform-Infra Red (FT-IR). The catalytic performance was investigated at 523 K and autogenous pressure in a batch reactor with glycerol concentration of 10%. The gaseous hydrogen product was observed over the prepared catalysts by GC. It was found that performance of catalysts to yield the hydrogen product was summarized as follow Cu/γ-Al2O3 > Co/γ-Al2O3 > Zn/γ-Al2O3 > Ni/γ-Al2O3.

Stable anatase is attractive because of its notable functions for photocatalysis and photon-electron transfer.  TiO2-nanoparticles dispersed SiO2 wet gels were prepared by hydrolysis of Ti(OC4H9n)4 and Si(OC2H5)4 in a 2-propanol solution with acid catalyst.  The solvent in the wet gels was supercritically extracted using CO2 at 60 oC and 22 Mpa in one-step.  Thermal evolution of the microstructure of the extracted gels (aerogels) was evaluated by XRD measurements, TEM and N2 adsorption measurements. The as-extracted aerogel with a large specific surface area, more than 365 m2g-1, contained anatase nanoparticles, about 5 nm in diameter.  The anatase phase was stable after calcinations at temperatures up to 1000 oC, and BET specific surface area, total pore volume and average pore diameter did not change significantly after calcinations at temperature up to 800 oC.   Keywords: Stable anatase, sol-gel, CO2 supercritical extraction.

Porous aerogel of titania-alumina were prepared by hydrolysis of metal alkoxides and supercritical extraction of the solvent.  Monolithic wet-gel of 0.2TiO2-0.8Al2O3, prepared by hydrolysis of metal alkoxides in alcoholic solutions, and the solvent in wet gel was supercritically extracted in CO2 at 60oC and 24Mpa for 2h. Thermal evolutions of the microstructure of the gel were evaluated by differential thermal analysis (TG-DTA), N2 adsorption, scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffractometer. After calcination at 500oC, the specific surface area of the gel was more than 400m2g-1. The average pore radius of aerogel, about 8nm, was about 50% of that for alumina aerogel, but about 4 times larger than that of the xerogel.  The specific surface area of the aerogel was more than 200m2g-1 after calcination at 800oC. The pore size and pore volume of aerogel hardly decreased after calcinations at 800oC, although those values of the xerogel remarkably decreased after calcination up to 800oC. The thermal stability of the microstructure of porous titania-alumina is improved by supercritical extraction.   Keywords: Oxides, Sol-gel chemistry, X-ray diffraction, Infrared pectroscopy

A technique to determine the surface fractal dimension of mesoporous TiO­2 using a dynamic flow adsorption instrument is described. Fractal dimension is an additional technique to characterize surface morphology. Surface fractal dimension, a quantitative measurement of surface ruggedness, can be determined by adsorbing a homologous series of adsorbates onto an adsorbent sample of mesoporous TiO­2. Titania wet gel prepared by hydrolysis of Ti-alkoxide was immersed in the flow of supercritical CO2 at 60 °C and the solvent was extracted.  Mesoporous TiO­2 consists of anatase nano-particles, about 5nm in diameter, have been obtained. After calcination at 600 °C, the average pore size of the extracted gel, about 20nm in diameter, and the pore volume, about 0.35cm3g-1, and the specific surface area, about 58 m2g-1. Using the N2 adsorption isotherm, the surface fractal dimension, DS, has been estimated according to the Frenkel-Halsey-Hill (FHH) theory. The N2 adsorption isotherm for the as-extracted aerogel indicates the mesoporous structure. Two linear regions are found for the FHH plot of the as-extracted aerogel. The estimated surface fractal dimensions are about 2.49 and 2.68. Both of the DS  values indicate rather complex surface morphology. The TEM observation shows that there are amorphous and crystalline particles. Two values of DS may be attributed to these two kinds of particles. The two regions are in near length scales, and the smaller DS, DS =2.49, for the smaller region. This result indicates that there are two kinds of particles, probably amorphous and anatase particles as shown by the TEM observation.     Keywords: surface fractal dimensions, CO2 supercritically extraction, sol-gel, aerogel, titania

Nickel catalyst has been prepared impregnation and precipitation with nickel content of 20% and 25% each using bentonite as support material. The effects of the preparation method were studied using temperature programmed oxidation (TPO) and temperature programmed reduction (TPR) and by determination of its specific surface area. The activity of catalysts has been tested in the hydrogenation of palm oil. The catalyst with 20% of nickel and prepared by impregnation shows a single peak at 301°C, compared to catalyst with 25% of nickel prepared by the same method which has a peak at 304°C and a shoulder at 330°C. The reduction curves of both catalysts, those are prepared by impregnation, show a homogeneity indicated by a high main peak at 426°C (20% Ni) and 430°C (25% Ni). The 25% nickel catalyst by impregnation has a shoulder at 508°C. The catalysts prepared by precipitation show peaks at 508°C and 661°C for 20% of Ni and peaks at 419°C and 511°C for 25% of Ni. The reduction curves of catalysts prepared by precipitation are significantly different from each other. Those are also very different comparing to the reduction curve of impregnated catalyst. The 20% precipitated nickel catalyst has a single peak at 540°C, but the 25% precipitated nickel catalyst shows peaks at 346°C and 503°C. The differences of peak position among the reduction curves of catalysts resulted in the differences of catalyst activities with the following order 20% Ni (impregnation) > 25% Ni (impregnation) > 20% Ni (precipitation) > 25% Ni (precipitation).   Keywords: bentonite, nickel catalyst, hidrogenation
