Low absorption vitreous carbon reactors for operando XAS: a case study on Cu/Zeolites for selective catalytic reduction of NO(x) by NH3.
We describe the use of vitreous carbon as an improved reactor material for an operando X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) plug-flow reactor. These tubes significantly broaden the operating range forExpand

Effect of Zn addition on the water-gas shift reaction over supported palladium catalysts
Abstract The effect of Zn addition on the Pd turnover rate (TOR) for the water–gas shift (WGS) reaction was studied on 2 wt% Pd on alumina with Zn content varying from 0 to 19% Zn by weight. Over 85%Expand
