Studies of Catalytic Properties of Inorganic Rock Matrices in Redox Reactions


Intrinsic catalytic properties of mineral matrices of various kinds (basalts, clays, sandstones) were studied, which are of interest for in-situ heavy oil upgrading (i.e., underground) to create advanced technologies for enhanced oil recovery. The elemental, surface and phase composition and matrix particle morphology, surface and acidic properties were… (More)
