The mechanism of direct N(2)O decomposition over Fe-ZSM-5 and Fe-silicate was studied in the temporal analysis of products (TAP) reactor in the temperature range of 773-848 K at a peak N(2)O pressure of ca. 10 Pa. Several kinetic models based on elementary reaction steps were evaluated to describe the transient responses of the reactant and products.(More)

Non-oxidative dehydrogenation of propane to propene is an established large-scale process that, however, faces challenges, particularly in catalyst development; these are the toxicity of chromium compounds, high cost of platinum, and catalyst durability. Herein, we describe the design of unconventional catalysts based on bulk materials with a certain defect(More)
Multifunctional catalysts are developed for converting CO2 with C2H4 and H2 into propanol. Au nanoparticles (NP) supported on TiO2 are found to facilitate this reaction. The activity and selectivity strongly depend on NP size, which can be tuned by the method of Au deposition and by promoting with K. The promoter improves the selectivity to propanol. Under(More)
Bare alumina shows surprisingly high activity in non-oxidative dehydrogenation of isobutane to isobutylene. The activity is related to surface coordinatively unsaturated Al sites (Alcus), which are created upon removal of OH groups during alumina treatment at high temperatures. Alcus and neighbouring lattice oxygen represent the active site for isobutane(More)
For the first time, we demonstrated that combining oxidative and non-oxidative dehydrogenation of iso-butane in one reactor system is an attractive approach for iso-butene and hydrogen production. Iso-butene yields above 40% at iso-butene selectivity above 80% and CO(x) selectivity below 2% were achieved over SiO(2)-supported highly-dispersed VO(x) species(More)
Bulk binary ZrO2-based oxides efficiently catalyse non-oxidative dehydrogenation of isobutane to isobutylene. Their activity strongly depends on the kind of second metal oxide. So designed CrZrOx showed superior activity to industrially relevant catalysts with supported Pt or CrOx species. It was also stable under alternating dehydrogenation and oxidative(More)
Mechanistic aspects of the formation of C3H6, CO and CO2 in the oxidative dehydrogenation of propane over VOx/gamma-Al2O3 materials have been investigated by means of steady state and transient isotopic tests. The materials possessed highly dispersed and polymerised VOx species as well as bulk-like V2O5. Propene was primarily formed via oxidative(More)
