Synthesis and characterization of novel Ti doped hexagonal mesoporous silica catalyst for nonenzymatic hydrogen peroxide oxidation

Synthesis and characterization of novel Ti doped hexagonal mesoporous silica catalyst for nonenzymatic hydrogen peroxide oxidation
A new electrocatalyst, Ti-HMS was successfully synthesized by sol-gel method employing Ti source tetrabutyl orthotitanate (TBOT) and silica source tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS, 99% purity). Ti-HMS catalysts were prepared at varying Ti:Si ratios by employing sol-gel method. Physicochemical properties of these nanoparticles were characterized and confirmed by BET, TG-DTA, XPS, and XRD. Electrochemical properties of Ti-HMS catalysts prepared at varying Ti:Si ratios were examined by cyclic voltammetry (CV) and chronoamperometry (CA) for determination of the oxidation and reduction activity of H2O2. It was observed that the Ti-HMS (Ti:Si = 0.02) electrode exhibits significant oxidation and reduction of H2O2 at applied potentials of 0.65 V and −0.30 V with the addition of H2O2, respectively. The excellent electrocatalytic response to H2O2 is mainly attributed to varying electronic properties with the incorporation of Ti to HMS.
