Simple Preparation of Porous Carbon-Supported Ruthenium: Propitious Catalytic Activity in the Reduction of Ferrocyanate(III) and a Cationic Dye.

ABSTRACT: The present study involves the synthesis, characterization, and catalytic application of ruthenium nanoparticles (Ru NPs) supported on plastic-derived carbons (PDCs) synthesized from plastic wastes (soft drink bottles) as an alternative carbon source. PDCs have been further activated with CO2 and characterized by various analytical techniques. The catalytic activity of Ru@PDC for the reduction of potassium hexacyanoferrate(III), (K3[Fe(CN)6]), and new fuchsin (NF) dye by NaBH4 was performed under mild conditions. The PDCs had spherical morphology with an average size of 0.5 ?m, and the Ru NP (5 ± 0.2 nm) loading (4.01 wt %) into the PDC provided high catalytic performance for catalytic reduction of ferrocyanate(III) and NF dye. This catalyst can be recycled more than six times with only a minor loss of its catalytic activity. In addition, the stability and reusability of the Ru@PDC catalyst are also discussed.
