Hydrogen Dissociation, Spillover, and Desorption from Cu-Supported Co Nanoparticles.

Abstract

Co-Cu nanoparticles have recently been explored for Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (FTS) as a way to combine the long chain selectivity of Co with Cu's activity for alcohol formation in order to synthesize oxygenated transportation fuels. Depending on particle size, hydrogen dissociation can be a rate-determining step in cobalt-catalyzed FTS. To understand the… (More)
