Abstract

We describe the production and catalytic activity of a carbon nanotube supported-Ru(0) (CNT@Ru(0)) catalyst. For the first time, the produced CNT@Ru(0) catalyst is used to achieve the greatest hydrogen production rate from potassium borohydride (KBH4) hydrolysis. The produced CNT@ Ru(0) catalyst shows promise in the creation of hydrogen from the degradation of KBH4. The hydrogen generation rate of CNT@Ru(0) is determined to be 86,264.85 mL min(-1) can with a low activation energy of 30.18 kJ mol(-1). CNTs are potential support for distributing metal catalysts, according to the current work. Furthermore, structural, morphological, and elemental characteristics of the produced CNT@Ru(0) catalyst are investigated.
