Özet

Existing energy resources are not sufficient to meet the energy needs of the increasing world population so the need for clean and renewable energy systems is increasing day after day. Hydrogen is a good alternative energy source because of its clean by-products and high energy capacity. Studies on hydrogen storage systems that provide instant hydrogen production in the literature are of great interest. In this study, poly-2-vinylpyridine (p(2-VP)) polymer was prepared by photopolymerization method and reacted with 2,6-bis(2-benzimidazolyl)pyridine ligand containing Ru(II) complex to give p(2-VP) supported Ru(II) material. The synthesized Ru(II) complex was characterized by FT-IR, UV-Vis and H-1-NMR spectroscopic techniques. Also the p(2-VP) polymer was characterized by FT-IR spectroscopy. The obtained p(2-VP) supported Ru(II) material was used as catalyst in hydrogen generation from NaBH4 metanolysis reaction and the reaction kinetic was investigated.
