In this paper, NiMoO4 powder was synthesized by the complexation method combining EDTA-Citrate. The behavior of the NiMoO4 material in the ethyl transesterification reaction was evaluated by analyzing the acidity index under specified reaction conditions. The results showed that NiMoO4 crystallized at 800 °C with a total mass loss of 85%, presenting a monoclinic structure, free of secondary phases, high degree of crystallinity and average crystallite size of 140 nm. The particles had heterogeneous sizes and shapes, but with well-defined contours. The increase in the mass of NiMoO4 in the reaction medium reduced the acidity index (0.8 mgKOH.g-1 with 15 wt.%). Despite the use of the minimum molar ratio (1:3), the ethyl route being less reactive and the use of the operating temperature close to the alcohol evaporation temperature, NiMoO4 showed promising catalytic potential in the transesterification process.

Abstract Multi-functionality is a highly desirable feature in designing new electrode material for both energy storage and conversion devices. Here, we report a well-integrated and stable β-NiMoO4 that was fabricated on three dimensional (3D) nickel foam (NF) by a simple hydrothermal approach. The obtained β-NiMoO4 with interesting honeycomb like interconnected nanosheet microstructure leads to excellent electrochemical activity. As an electrode for Supercapatteries, β-NiMoO4–NF showed a high sp...

Os oleos vegetais e gorduras animais podem ser utilizados como materia-prima para a producao de um biocombustivel com as mesmas caracteristicas do diesel, chamado Biodiesel. Entretanto a reacao de transesterificacao, utilizada no processo limita a utilizacao de residuos ou oleos nao processados que tendem a apresentar maiores indices de acidez devido a possibilidade de saponificacao durante a reacao. Uma alternativa e a utilizacao de pre-tratamentos sobre a materia-prima com intuito de atingir i...

Abstract In this work, nickel molybdates were synthesized by co-precipitation method, at 70 °C, and were thermally treated at temperatures ranging from 300 to 1000 °C. Firstly, the hydrated precursor (NiMoO4.0.65H2O) was obtained, followed by calcination at 300-600 °C to produce a mixture of β- and α-NiMoO4 phases. The pure α phase could only be obtained above 700 °C. The relationships among the crystal structure, colorimetric parameters, and spectroscopic properties (Raman and UV-Vis diffuse re...

Abstract The influence of calcination temperatures on the physical-chemical properties and catalytic performance of MoO 3 catalysts, synthesized using a hydrothermal approach, was studied. We present herein a catalyst calcined at 600 °C able to convert buriti, babassu, soybean, pequi, macauba, and waste cooking oils into biodiesel with yields over 90% under optimized conditions. In addition, the catalyst was used up to 8 times without significant performance loss and without the need for washing...

Abstract Bimetallic Fe(III) doped ZnO (FZO) nanoparticles (NPs) were synthesized to be utilized as heterogeneous nano-catalysts. The synthesized NPs were characterized using various physical techniques. Average particle size and surface area of NPs were found to be 76.24 ± 17 nm, and 12.39 m2 g−1, respectively. Designed nano-catalyst was found to be soft ferromagnetic in nature, with 1.32 ± 0.2 emu g−1 magnetization and 75.52 ± 2 Oe coercivity. FZO NPs indicated efficient transesterification rea...

Abstract Peels from tucuma, a widely consumed fruit in the North of Brazil, were calcined at 800 °C and employed as heterogeneous catalyst in biodiesel synthesis. The catalyst characterization by WDXRF showed it was mostly composed of K, P, Ca, and Mg. The catalytic activity was evaluated by transesterification of soybean oil with methanol. The transesterification conditions were optimized at 1% w/w of the new catalyst, 4 h reaction time, 80 °C, and 15:1 methanol:oil molar ratio, yielding-biodie...

Abstract It was initially used a 23 experimental design with central point in triplicate to synthesize strontium molybdate by EDTA-citrate combined complexation method, where the influence of pH (6, 7.5 e 9), calcining time (3, 4 e 5 h) and heating rate (5, 7 e 10 °C min−1) was investigated. Single-phase powders were obtained when calcined at 650 °C with tetragonal crystalline structure. The heating rate is the most influent independent variable on the intensities of the X-ray diffractions peaks...

Abstract Nickel molybdate (NiMoO4) nanoparticles (NPs) were synthesized by a simplistic one-pot microwave combustion method using urea as the fuel. The produced NPs have been examined by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) analysis, scanning electron microscope (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX), high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HR-TEM) analysis. Further, optical and electronic properties were determined by UV-Visible and Photoluminescence (PL) a...
