Cover Story: This study investigates bifunctional Pt/CNT materials for hydrolysis and supercapacitor applications. Pt/CNT catalysts were synthesized via NaBH4 reduction and characterized using SEM-EDX, XRD, and TEM. Optimal catalyst ratios were determined for hydrogen production from NaBH4, yielding initial reaction rates of 21949.69 and 70018.18 mlH2gcatmin-1 at 30°C and 60°C, respectively. For supercapacitor use, Pt/CNT electrodes were assessed via GCD, CV, and EIS, showing a specific capacitance of 57.78 F/g and energy/power densities of 8.025 Wh/kg and 963 W/kg. Termed "cap-cat," this catalyst demonstrates promising potential in current research areas.ffordability. View this paper.

llmenite and Biomass Composite Nanomaterials - A Review

Received: 10 April 2024;  Published: 13 June 2024;  doi: 10.21926/cr.2402006


Ilmenite is a mineral whose crystallinity can be altered by chemical treatment, producing TiO2 and iron and titanium-based metal nanocomposites, which are applicable mainly for photocatalysis. Porous and crystalline biomass-derived carbon materials include graphene oxide, reduced graphene oxide, graphitic carbon nitride, catalytically graphitized sucrose and chitosan, and activated carbon. Ilmenite-based metal oxides coupled with biomass-based carbon materials are effectiv [...]

A Remarkable Pt Doped CNT Catalyst as a Double Functional Material: Its Application for Hydrogen Production and Supercapacitor

Received: 25 December 2023;  Published: 15 May 2024;  doi: 10.21926/cr.2402005


In this study, by producing bifunctional material, hydrolysis, and supercapacitor applications were investigated. The carbon nanotube-supported Pt catalyst was prepared using the sodium borohydride (NaBH4) reduction. Surface characterization of the synthesized Pt/CNT catalyst was performed using scanning electron microscopy-energy dıstrıbutıon X-ray spectrometer (SEM-EDX), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Hydrolysis experiments were perf [...]
