Transient state kinetics of the catalytic oxidation of CO with O(2) on Pd-surfaces has been measured under isothermal conditions by using a molecular beam approach. Systematic studies were carried out as a function of reaction temperature and CO+O(2) composition. With sufficient kinetic evidence, we have demonstrated the positive influence of subsurface(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) reduction with carbon monoxide (CO) on the Pd(111) surface was studied under isothermal conditions by molecular beam techniques as a function of temperature, NO:CO beam composition, and beam flux. Systematic experiments were performed under transient and steady state conditions. Displacement of adsorbed CO by NO in the transient state of(More)
We study the selective catalytic oxidation of ethanol with air as a sustainable alternative route to acetaldehyde. The reaction is catalysed by molybdenum oxide supported on titania, in a flow reactor under ambient pressure. High selectivity to acetaldehyde (70%–89%, depending on the Mo loading) is obtained at 150 8C. Subsequently, we investigate the(More)
Iron nanotube silica composite have been synthesized and studied through particle-size analysis, FTIR, SEM-EDX, TEM, XRD, UV, VSM, TGA-DTA and XPS techniques. The application of nanoframeworks as sustainable recyclable catalytic systems has been observed for azole cyclic ring organic transformations. The good reaction yields and characterization through(More)
he fundamental arrangement of granular behavior is important to know about the soil stability and influence the design of structural foundations. The structural stability is particularly useful in earthquake events. Therefore, to work on measuring the arrangement and orientation of an assemblage of granular particle is essential. In this paper, we evaluate(More)
The kinetics of NO adsorption and dissociation on Pd(111) surfaces and the NO sticking coefficient (s(NO)) were probed by isothermal kinetic measurements between 300 and 525 K using a molecular beam instrument. NO dissociation and N2 productions were observed in the transient state from 425 K and above on Pd(111) surfaces with selective nitrogen production.(More)
