Abstract:
Palladium–Cobalt (Pd–Co) alloys with different atomic ratios were synthesized successfully by borohydride-assisted chemical reduction method. Pd–Co alloys were characterized to study their physical and chemical properties. Further, the catalytic behavior of the synthesized alloys and effect of cobalt inclusion into alloy for the catalytic behavior was studied using reduction of 4-nitrophenol (4-NP). The reduction of 4-NP into 4-aminophenol by sodium borohydride is one of the eminent model reactions to study catalytic behavior as it enables assessing the catalyst from the kinetic parameters calculated from the real-time spectroscopic monitoring of an aqueous solution. Pd–Co alloys show good catalytic activity towards the reduction of 4-NP and their rate constants were calculated. The catalytic studies reveal that reduction reaction catalyzed by prepared Pd–Co alloys follow the pseudo-first-order kinetics. Among them, Pd26Co74 catalyzed the reduction reaction with the minimum time of 7 min having a rate constant of 6.65 ms−1. The turn over frequency (TOF) for the corresponding alloy was calculated and found to be 26 h−1.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
