Low-temperature N2O decomposition catalysts

november 19, 2021

Nitrous oxide is known as a greenhouse gas and a severe contributor to ozone layer destruction, thus its decomposition into N2 and O2 is a topic of vital interest for catalytic chemistry. The most promising catalytic materials for direct N2O decomposition are based on cobalt spinels. For practical applications, due to the high price of cobalt, the spinel phase should be dispersed on a low-cost support, such as alumina extrudates. Despite the highly activity in N2O decomposition, the catalysts performance decreases in the presence of contaminants in the tail gases of nitric acid plants. Read more

Catalysis 101: Understanding Chemisorption

oktober 23, 2021

Chemical adsorption, also known as chemisorption is the process that results from a chemical bond between adsorbate molecules and particular surface locations on a material which are called active sites. This article will outline the process of chemisorption and its relationship to catalysis. Read more

Plasma Treatment of Medical-Grade Polymers

september 18, 2021

Plasma treatment of medical-grade polymers is a technique which is used to enhance their wettability as they are often challenging to print on and bond to because they have extremely low surface energy. Specialized plasma sampling mass spectrometers and Langmuir probes manufactured by Hiden assist the manufacture of plasma-modified medical-grade polymers by offering comprehensive plasma characterization.

Operando Spectroscopy Characterization of Pt/Alumina Catalysts with Mechanistic Insights

augustus 19, 2021

Operando/in-situ spectroscopy as a powerful material characterization tool grows rapidly and shines light on various fields such as heterogeneous catalysis, electrocatalysis, photocatalysis and batteries.  The characterization of chemical and structural properties of catalytic materials under working conditions provide critical information on catalytic technologies and help develop a mechanistic understanding to support further advancements in their industrial application. In this work, we present an industrial example on how tailored operando spectroscopic methodologies were utilized to provide the insights in the heterogeneous catalysis area. Read more
