In this study, the poly (Castor Oil) (p(CO)) organo-particle from natural castor oil (CO) was synthesized for the first time in literature for sodium boron hydride (NaBH4) methanolysis hydrogen production. As is known, catalysts are used in most reactions performed in the chemical industry. Here, by analytical method, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR), Thermal Gravimetric Analyzer (TGA) and Ultra Field Emission Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (SEM) analyzes of the catalyst were performed and the characteristics of the catalyst were determined. Also for the methanolysis of the p(CO) catalyst NaBH4; The effect of the optimum NaBH4 concentration, catalyst amount and kinetic parameters at different temperatures were investigated. In the methanolysis reaction, the reaction rates for 0 and 30 degrees C were found to be 96.9 and 527.1 ml min(- 1) gcat(- 1), respectively. The activation energy of the p(CO) catalyst was calculated as 24 +/- 0.01 kJ mol(- 1).
