Chiral Surface Characterisation and Reactivity Toward H–D Exchange of a Curved Platinum Crystal

Understanding heterogeneous catalysis at the atomic level requires detailed knowledge of the reactivity of different surface sites toward specific bond breaking and bond making events. We illustrate a new method in such investigations. We use a …

Photoreactivity of Deep VB Titania Attained Via Molecular Layer Deposition; Interplay of Metal Oxide Thin Film Built-in Strain and Molecular Effects

Calcination of hybrid organic–inorganic Titanium-Ethylene Glycol (Ti-EG) thin films yield non-stoichiometric titania with deep valence band maximum (VBM) with down-shift of up to 450 meV relative to stoichiometric TiO2. We previously reported the …

Recent Advances in the Understanding of Boron-Containing Catalysts for the Selective Oxidation of Alkanes to Olefins

The production of ethylene and propylene through aerobic alkane oxidation without significant coproduction of CO and CO2 (COx) presents a challenge to academic and industrial researchers alike. Recently, boron-containing materials such as …

A Numerical Investigation of the Combined Effects of Initial Temperature and Catalyst Activity on the Dynamics of Soot Combustion in a Catalytic Diesel Particulate Filter

In the work presented in this paper, the combined effects of initial temperature and catalyst activity on the regeneration dynamics of a catalytic diesel particulate filter (DPF) have been investigated. To this end, CFD-based simulations of soot …

Towards Experimental Handbooks in Catalysis

The “Seven Pillars” of oxidation catalysis proposed by Robert K. Grasselli represent an early example of phenomenological descriptors in the field of heterogeneous catalysis. Major advances in the theoretical description of catalytic reactions …
