Abstract

We report the synthesis of metal-organic framework supported-Co-Ru (Co-Ru@MOF) catalyst and its catalytic activity. The synthesized Co-Ru@MOF catalyst for the first time is used to obtain the maximum hydrogen production rate from hydrolysis of NaBH4. The synthesized Co-Ru@MOF catalyst indicates a compelling performance in the hydrogen production from the hydrolysis of NaBH4. It is found that Co-Ru@MOF with the loading of Co (80 wt%) and Ru (20 wt%) indicates a high hydrogen production rate of 15,144 mL/min.g and low activation energy of 41.41 kJ mol(-1). The current study demonstrates that MOF is promising support for dispersing metal catalysts. Moreover, the synthesized Co-Ru@MOF catalyst is characterized by x-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscope (SEM), and energy dispersion spectroscopy (EDS) measurements.
