The three-dimensional sponge-like mesoporous material TUD-1 is straightforward to prepare. Its synthesis can readily be modified to introduce metals into the framework of TUD-1, imparting many different catalytic activities. M-TUD-1 catalysts have proven to be very active, unlimited by diffusion and very stable. By combining two metals into one TUD-1(More)
We have previously demonstrated a pulsed direct detection IPDA lidar to measure range and the column concentration of atmospheric CO 2. The lidar measures the atmospheric backscatter profiles and samples the shape of the 1,572.33 nm CO 2 absorption line. We participated in the ASCENDS science flights on the NASA DC-8 aircraft during August 2011 and report(More)
Bimetallic three-dimensional amorphous mesoporous materials, Al-Zr-TUD-1 materials, were synthesised by using a surfactant-free, one-pot procedure employing triethanolamine (TEA) as a complexing reagent. The amount of aluminium and zirconium was varied in order to study the effect of these metals on the Brønsted and Lewis acidity, as well as on the(More)
