Abstract [en]

The objective of this study was to evaluate the hydrogen production through hydrolysisof sodium borohydride (NaBH4) utilizing catalysts containing CoO. The reactant is safe and stable(when dry) at room temperature. Few works and studies have presented results of investigationsutilizing catalysts containing cobalt; however utilizing catalysts containing CoO were not found yet.In this work simple and cheap hydrogen generation system was developed having reactions atnormal conditions of temperature and pressure. A solution containing a gravimetric composition of10% wt. NaOH, 10% wt. NaBH4 and 80% wt. H2O was utilized. The reaction was carried out atvarious times using the same catalyst to evaluate its performance. This catalyst presented highrates of hydrogen production, especially at its start-up (about 99% of the theoretical hydrogenvolume was produced) at room temperature. After start-up, e.g., when more solution was put, rateof hydrogen production decreased having its production performance also decreased. Probablythis fact occurred due to the formation of the solid phase products such as NaBO2 which might fillthe porous catalyst structure; decreasing the catalytic area. This catalyst is suggested in situationswhere high production rates are necessary such as start-up of fuel cells.
