    , Article Bulletin of the Chemical Society of Japan ; Vol. 87, issue. 9 , 2014 , pp. 982-987 ; ISSN: 00092673 Shakourian-Fard, M ; Rezayan, A. H ; Kheirjou, S ; Bayat, A ; Hashemi, M. M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Abstract
    A highly efficient magnetic Brønsted acid catalyst was synthesized based on immobilization of 2-methylimidazole functionalized by chlorosulfonic acid on the surface of silica-coated magnetic nanoparticles (Fe3O4@SiO2-2mimSO3H). The catalyst has an excellent activity and recyclable for at least 6 reaction runs and is proven to be highly effective in the synthes is of α-aminophosphonate compounds in a green way. The facile recovery of the catalyst is carried out by applying an external magnet device. It is both "green" and efficient. The catalyst was fully characterized by techniques of TEM, SEM, FT-IR, TGA, and elemental analysis (CHNS)  

    Development of an empirical model for catalyst lifetime in isobutane/ butene alkylation

    , Article Industrial and Engineering Chemistry Research ; Volume 42, Issue 17 , 2003 , Pages 3886-3892 ; 08885885 (ISSN) Kazemeini, M ; Sahebdelfar, S ; Khorasheh, F ; Badakhshan, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    American Chemical Society  2003
    Abstract
    Dimensional analysis of the governing equations in liquid-phase, solid-acid-catalyzed alkylation was used to develop an empirical model for the catalyst lifetime in terms of important operating variables. It was found that the dimensionless catalyst lifetime in a continuous stirred tank reactor was a function of four dimensionless groups, incorporating all important kinetic and operating variables. A power-law correlation was found to be adequate in representing the available experimental data. Because the alkylation reactions are highly diffusion-limited, it was shown that only three of the four exponents in the power-law correlation were independent. As such, the fourth exponent was... 

    Treatment of diatomaceous earth to obtain its catalyst support

    , Article Scientia Iranica ; Volume 10, Issue 3 , 2003 , Pages 350-356 ; 10263098 (ISSN) Mahani, H ; Kazemeini, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Sharif University of Technology  2003
    Abstract
    Treatment of diatomaceous earth with sulfuric acid reduces mineral and organic impurities, such as Fe2O3, Al2O3 and alkali metal oxides (CaO, MgO and Na2O). In addition, wettability and porosity of the acid-treated diatomite are greatly enhanced. Acid-treated diatomite is suitable to be used as a siliceous support for catalysts, due to high silica content (> 90%), amorphous structure with low cristobalite and quartz phases, appropriate Brunauer-Emmett-Teller surface area, high absorptive capacity, good mechanical strength after calcinations and low cost of production. In the first part of this study, the influence of temperature, sulfuric acid concentration, acid-diatomite mass ratio and... 

    CoSALEN as a new catalyst for oxidation of fullerene C60

    , Article Journal of Coordination Chemistry ; Volume 62, Issue 20 , 2009 , Pages 3384-3390 ; 00958972 (ISSN) Ghanbari, B ; Tangeysh, B ; Sharif University of Technology
    2009
    Abstract
    The effect of CoSALEN on anti-oxidative properties of fullerene C60 in the presence of O2 in cumene was investigated. A comparison was made between the role of the CoSALEN as a catalyst in the C60 oxidation and oxidation in the presence of an initiator, i.e., AIBN. A mechanism is proposed for the catalytic role of CoSALEN in oxidation of C60. Oxidation of octadecylaminofullerene C60 at the same conditions reveals that oxidation could be a result of hydroperoxidation of the unreacted sites of C60. We conclude that C60 as well as its aminoderivatives enhance the efficiency of CoSALEN in the oxidation of cumene due to their radical scavenging property of their unreacted double-bond sites. ©... 

    Ultra-small and highly dispersive iron oxide hydroxide as an efficient catalyst for oxidation reactions: a swiss-army-knife catalyst

    , Article Scientific Reports ; Volume 11, Issue 1 , 2021 ; 20452322 (ISSN) Amini, M ; Mousazade, Y ; Zand, Z ; Bagherzadeh, M ; Najafpour, M. M ; Sharif University of Technology

    Abstract
    Ultra-small and highly dispersive (< 10 nm) iron oxide hydroxide is characterized by some methods. The compound is an efficient and stable catalyst for alcohol oxidation, organic sulfide oxidation, and epoxidation of alkenes in the presence of H2O2. The electrochemical oxygen-evolution reaction of the iron oxide hydroxide is also tested under acidic, neutral, and alkaline conditions. In the presence of the iron oxide hydroxide, excellent conversions (75–100%) and selectivities of substrates (92–97%), depending on the nature of the sulfide, were obtained. Benzylalcohols having electron-donating and-withdrawing substituents in the aromatic ring were oxidized to produce the corresponding...

    Abstract
    Anchoring of copper sulfate in layered poly(imidazole-imidazolium) coated magnetic nanoparticles provided a highly stable, active, reusable, high loading, and green catalyst for the click synthesis of 1,2,3-triazoles via a one-pot cycloaddition of alkyl halide, azide, and alkyne (Cu-A3C). The catalyst was characterized by FTIR, TGA, TEM, SEM, XRD, EDAX, VSM and AAS. High selectivity, broad diversity of alkyl/benzyl bromide/chloride and alkyl/aryl terminal alkynes, and good to excellent yields of products were obtained using 0.7 mol% catalyst.

    Abstract
    Palladium catalysts supported on functionalized multi-wall carbon nanotubes were synthesized for hydro-purification of crude terephthalic acid containing 2100ppm 4-carboxybenzaldehyde (4-CBA) as impurity. PdCl2 and Pd(OAc)2 were used as precursors. Palladium loadings were 0.05 to 0.6wt.% with catalysts reduced at 200 to 400°C. Catalysts prepared from both precursors with least 0.3wt.% palladium resulted in 99%+ removal of 4-CBA. The most desired selectivity was obtained for the catalyst with PdCl2 as precursor, reduction temperature of 300°C, and palladium loading of 0.3wt.%. This catalyst had slightly better performance than the commercial catalyst (0.5wt.% of palladium on activated carbon)...

    Abstract
    A highly chemoselective methodology is described for the N-methylation of functionalized anilines with dimethyl carbonate (MeOCO2Me, DMC) in the presence of ZrOCl2·8H2O. Dimethyl carbonate, which usually promotes methylation at T > 120 C and eventually under inert atmosphere, was activated in the presence of zirconium oxychloride for the desired transformation at 90 C under aerobic conditions. Aminophenols showed good reactivity in this transformation and produced the corresponding N-methylanilines, as the major products, with high selectivity. Catalyst reusability study confirmed that ZrOCl2·8H2O is a recyclable catalyst and its catalytic activity was remained unchanged at least after eight...

    Modeling of platinum extraction from used reforming catalyst in iodine solutions

    , Article ECS Transactions ; Volume 41, Issue 17 , 2012 , Pages 45-51 ; 19385862 (ISSN) ; 9781607683070 (ISBN) Moghaddam, H. R ; Baghallha, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Abstract
    Platinum extraction from spent reforming catalysts in iodine solutions under atmospheric pressure and at temperatures up to 95°C was previously investigated in our group. In this system, platinum is oxidized from the spent catalyst with tri-iodide. In some of the experiments, it was observed that platinum extraction peaked and then decreased. This indicates that a precipitation reaction slowly occurs that removes the dissolved Pt ions from the solution. Power-law rate equation for the Pt extraction to PtI6 2- and the precipitation of the dissolved platinum to PtI 4(s) was implemented to model the experimental Pt extraction data. The activation energies for the platinum dissolution reaction...

    Elsevier  2015
    Abstract
    For the first time, the mechanism of Fischer esterification between acetic acid and ethanol over silica-functionalized propylsulfonic acid (silica-propyl-SO3H) catalyst was explored by means of computational modeling techniques. For this purpose, 6-edge-atom cage-like cluster comprising Si-O-Si sequences has been selected to represent the surface of the catalyst. The results indicate that the reaction goes through concerted transition states. In all optimized structures no proton (H+) transfer occurs from catalyst to the substrates and the role of the catalyst is via the activation of the substrates through the formation of strong hydrogen bonds (H-bonds). Furthermore, the energetic diagram...
