Treatment of a stoichiometric hydroxyapatite (HAP), Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2, with PdCl2(PhCN)2 gives a new type of palladium-grafted hydroxyapatite. Analysis by means of powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), energy-dispersive X-ray (EDX), IR, and Pd K-edge X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) proves that a monomeric PdCl2 species(More)
The initial thermal decomposition of iron carbonyl (Fe(CO)(5)), followed by reduction of palladium acetylacetonate (Pd(acac)(2)) produced FePd nanoparticles (NPs) with an Fe(x)O(y)-rich core and a Pd-rich shell. The as-synthesized NPs were subsequently treated with (S)-2,2'-bis(diphenylphosphino)-1,1'-binaphthene ((S)-BINAP) as a chiral modifier, which(More)
Achieving precise control of active species on solid surfaces is one of the most important goals in the development of highly functionalized heterogeneous catalysts. The treatment of hydroxyapatites with PdCl(2)(PhCN)(2) gives two new types of hydroxyapatite-bound Pd complexes. Using the stoichiometric hydroxyapatite, Ca(10)(PO(4))(6)(OH)(2), we found that(More)
Silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) of various colors were synthesized within the mesopore structure of SBA-15 by using microwave-assisted alcohol reduction. The charge density is partially localized on the surface of these Ag NPs owing to localized surface plasmon resonance. This charge localization results in them having enhanced catalytic activity under(More)
A Ti4+-exchanged montmorillonite (Ti4+-mont) and a hydrotalcite (HT) are strong solid Brønsted acid and base, and these two clay catalysts could be used in a single reactor without neutralization of active sites. Because the Ti4+-mont have active acid site in the narrow interlayers, the base sites of large HT particles show no interaction with the acid(More)
[Pt(tpy)Cl]Cl (tpy: terpyridine) was successfully anchored to a series of mesoporous-silica materials that were modified with (3-aminopropyl)triethoxysilane with the aim of developing new inorganic-organic hybrid photocatalysts. Herein, the relationship between the luminescence characteristics and photocatalytic activities of these materials is examined as(More)
In the past decades, various photocatalysts such as TiO2, transition-metal-oxide moieties within cavities and frameworks, or metal complexes have attracted considerable attention in light-excited catalytic processes. Owing to high surface areas, transparency to UV and visible light as well as easily modified surfaces, mesoporous silica-based materials have(More)
