Nickel catalysts are the most popular for steam reforming, however, they have a number of drawbacks, such as high propensity toward coke formation and intolerance to sulfur. In an effort to improve their behavior, a series of Ni-catalysts supported on pure and La-, Ba-, (La+Ba)and Ce-doped γ-alumina has been prepared. The doped supports and the catalysts(More)
The interaction of the calcite surface with Co2+-rich aqueous solutions ([Coaq]initial = 1000 ppm, i.e., ca. 17 mM) was investigated by means of macroscopic experiments and surface spectroscopic techniques. In the case of the macroscopic experiments, calcite powder and monocrystals were immersed into solutions for different time periods (from 1 min to one(More)
Silicon oxide in combination with magnesium chloride is used as a support for the industrial preparation of some types of Ziegler-Natta catalysts. These catalysts are the best candidates for the low pressure production of linear low-density polyethylene and ethylene co-polymers from the gas phase, with improved optical properties in the film form. By many(More)
The substrate-induced oxidation upon prolonged annealing in UHV of ultrathin films of Ni and Cr vapor deposited on yttria-stabilized zirconia YSZ(100) was studied by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) to obtain information about the oxidation mechanism, determine the available quantity of reactive oxygen in YSZ, and investigate the thermal stability of(More)
