Solid-state kinetic investigations of non-isothermal reduction of VO2
The solid-state kinetics of the reduction of VO2 to corundum-type V2O3 were investigated by temperature-programmed measurements. Experimental parameters were chosen to be similar to those used inExpand
Surface Conditions That Constrain Alkane Oxidation on Perovskites
The crystal structure of perovskites can incorporate a wide variety of cations, which makes this class of materials so interesting for studies of links between solid-state chemistry and catalysis.Expand
