Oxygen activation is an important process in many catalytic reactions. The nature of this process in Cu-zeolite has been explored by researchers in KCK. The results from this study lays foundation for the understanding of catalytic reactions such as NOx reduction and partial hydrocarcon oxidation. The results have been published in ChemCatChem.
The Effect of Framework Structure on N 2 O Formation over Cu-based Zeolites during NH 3 -SCR Reaction
Nitrogen monoxide (NO) is hazardous and catalytic techniques are used to reduce NO to molecular nitrogen and water using ammonia as a reducing agent. This is a challenging problem given that diesel exhaust contain only one NO molecule per 300 oxygen molecules.
Nanoparticles play a key role in catalysis, which for example is used to clean exhaust gases from our cars. To save energy and provide clean air, it is desirable to understand how the catalytic reactions proceed over the nanoparticles. In his PhD thesis, Mikkel Jørgensen has developed simulation methods to do so. Now he receives the Best Thesis Award for his efforts.
