The effect of nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA) as a complexing agent on the sulfidation mechanisms of Co-Mo catalysts supported on activated carbon and alumina was examined by the XAFS technique. The XAFS results revealed that NTA interacted with Co atoms and formed the Co-NTA interaction, while it showed almost no influence on the local structures around Mo(More)
The goal of the present study was to elucidate the formation mechanisms of highly dispersed catalysts by the molten salt method. For this purpose, multi-component fitting Mo K-edge EXAFS analysis was applied to the structure of molybdate catalysts prepared in KNO3 and NaNO3. The analysis revealed that MoO3 dissolved in molten salts was at first transformed(More)
An in-situ XAFS cell was developed and used for the structural analysis of a Rh ion-exchanged zeolite catalyst during high-pressure hydrogenation of carbon dioxide. The in-situ cell enabled analyses of the catalyst structures that changed with the reaction atmosphere and elapsed time; the peak assigned to Rh-O scattering changed to that assigned to Rh-Rh(More)
