A voltammetric biosensor based on tyrosinase (TYR) was developed for determination of tyramine. Carbon material (multi-walled carbon nanotubes or mesoporous carbon CMK-3-type), polycationic polymer-i.e., poly(diallyldimethylammonium chloride) (PDDA), and Nafion were incorporated into titania dioxide sol (TiO2) to create an immobilization matrix. The(More)
Four various mesoporous silicas (MCM-48, SBA-15, MCF, and MSU) were modified by the molecular designed dispersion method using Fe(acac)3, Cr(acac)3, and Cu(acac)2 complexes. The deposition was performed at the same concentration of the metal acetylacetonate (acac) complex in a toluene solution. All as-synthesized samples were investigated by diffuse(More)
Vanadium oxide was deposited on mesoporous titania by the molecular designed dispersion method to investigate the potential properties of these catalysts. Mesoporous titania was synthesized following the evaporation-induced self-assembly (EISA) method with a subsequent treatment with ammonia to increase the thermal stability. As a result, the mesoporous(More)
Supported vanadium and titanium oxide catalysts were prepared by adsorption and subsequent calcination of the vanadyl and titanyl acetylacetonate complexes, respectively, on mesoporous SBA-15 by the molecular designed dispersion (MDD) method. Liquid and gas phase depositions at different temperatures were carried out with vanadyl acetylacetonate, and the(More)
The study deals with the XPS, Raman and EDX characterization of a series of structured catalysts composed of cobalt oxides promoted by palladium and cerium oxides. The aim of the work was to relate the information gathered from spectroscopic analyses with the ones from kinetic tests of methane combustion to establish the basic structure-activity(More)
The novel mesoporous templated silicas (MCM-48, SBA-15, MCF, and MSU) were used as supports for transition metal (Cu, Cr, or Fe) oxides. The catalysts were synthesized using the incipient wetness impregnation, and characterized by low-temperature N2 sorption, DRIFT, photoacoustic IR spectroscopy, UV-vis diffuse reflectance spectroscopy, and(More)
TiO2/g-C3N4 photocatalysts with the ratio of TiO2 to g-C3N4 ranging from 0.3/1 to 2/1 were prepared by simple mechanical mixing of pure g-C3N4 and commercial TiO2 Evonik P25. All the nanocomposites were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction, UV-vis diffuse reflectance spectroscopy, photoluminescence, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy,(More)
Mesoporous alumina with narrow pore size distribution centered in the range of 4.4-5.0 nm and with a specific surface area as high as 270 m²·g-1 was prepared via the nanocasting approach using a CMK-3 carbon replica as a hard template. Based on this support, a series of catalysts containing 1, 5, 10, 20 and 30 wt % of chromium was prepared by incipient(More)
MCM-48, SBA-15, MCF, and MSU mesoporous silicas were used as supports for a deposition of Fe oxide species. Iron was introduced using two different methods: the wetness impregnation and the molecular designed dispersion (MDD). The obtained catalysts were characterized with respect to their textural parameters (BET), chemical composition (electron microprobe(More)
MCM-41-type mesoporous silica was used as a support for poly(furfuryl alcohol) deposition. This material was produced by precipitation-polycondensation of furfuryl alcohol (FA) in aqueous slurry of the SiO2 support followed by controlled partial carbonization. By tuning the FA/MCM-41 mass ratio in the reaction mixture, various amounts of polymer particles(More)
