Özet

The development of catalytically active, low-cost, and reusable catalysts is very vital for on-demand hydrogen generation systems for practical onboard applications. Titanium dioxide supported-cobalt phosphorus (Co-P/TiO2) catalyst prepared by electroless deposition has been shown to effectively promote the release of hydrogen from the hydrolytic dehydrogenation of ammonia borane. The catalyst is very stable to be isolated as solid material and characterized by XRD, SEM-EDX, and XPS. It is redispersible and reusable as an active catalyst in the hydrolytic dehydrogenation of AB. The activation energy (Ea) for the hydrolytic dehydrogenation of ammonia borane catalyzed by Co-P/TiO2 catalyst is 48.1 +/- 2 kJ mol(-1). Maximum hydrogen generation rate in the hydrolytic dehydrogenation of ammonia borane catalyzed by Co-P/TiO2 catalyst is 2002 mL H-2 min(-1) (g catalyst)(-1). (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V.
