H2S purification from biogas by direct selective oxidation to sulphur on V2O5–CeO2 structured catalysts

Our research project concerns the H2S purification from a biogas stream by direct and selective oxidation to sulphur and...

Direct Octane Fuel Cells: A Promising Power for Transportation

The demand for electric vehicles has inspired extensive efforts to develop solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) for transportation. However, the high...

Indium oxide cubes prepared by hydrothermal synthesis as catalysts for CO oxidation

CO oxidation is a reaction of particular interest for catalysis, since this is a model reaction for studying heterogeneous...

Routes to visible light active C-doped TiO2 photocatalysts using carbon atoms from the Ti precursors

C-doped TiO2 photocatalysts (at very low levels of C present either at anionic or interstitial sites) have a smaller...

The Effect of Alcohol Concentration on the Mass Signal of CO2 Detected by DEMS

Differential electrochemical mass spectrometry (DEMS) has been extensively used for studying fuel cell related electrocatalytic reactions and proven to...

Effect of catalyst structure on steam reforming of toluene over Ni/La0.7Sr0.3AlO3−δ catalyst

We focused on steam reforming of biomass tar, which is an alternative to fossil fuels and includes toluene-like compounds...

Low temperature catalytic oxidation of H2S over V2O5/CeO2 catalysts

This research project concerns the abatement of H2S from a biogas stream by partial and selective oxidation to sulphur and...

Evaluation and mechanistic investigation of a AuPd alloy catalyst for HC-SCR of NOx

Diesel engines are becoming ever more popular for automotive applications principally due to their higher fuel efficiency. However, the...

A lithium–oxygen battery based on lithium superoxide

Batteries based on sodium superoxide and on potassium superoxide have recently been reported1, 2, 3. However, there have been...
