Abstract null null Herein, catalytic aqueous phase photoreforming of cellulose was carried out over Pt/m-TiO2 (i.e., mixed phase of anatase and rutile) and Pt/anatase catalysts to investigate the effect of the TiO2 support structure and Pt loading on the production of H2. The effect of the TiO2 support on the properties of the resulting Pt/TiO2 catalysts (such as actual Pt loading and BET surface area) was not significant. At low Pt loading of 0.16 wt.%, the TiO2 supports affected the sub-nanome...

Bimetallic Pt–Ni catalysts can promote catalytic dry reforming of methane (DRM) with improved activity and deactivation resistance compared to the relevant monometallic catalysts. Further development of Pt–Ni catalysts requires mechanistic insights into the catalytic system. Herein, a mechanistic study of DRM over Pt–Ni supported on cerium oxide catalysts (i.e., Pt–Ni@CeO2) was performed using in situ coupled diffuse reflectance infrared Fourier-transform spectroscopy and mass spectrometry (DRIF...

Metal-organic framework (MOF) materials provide an excellent platform to fabricate single-atom catalysts due to their structural diversity, intrinsic porosity, and designable functionality. However, the unambiguous identification of atomically dispersed metal sites and the elucidation of their role in catalysis are challenging due to limited methods of characterization and lack of direct structural information. Here, we report a comprehensive investigation of the structure and the role of atomic...

Understanding the surface structure of bimetallic nanoparticles is crucial for heterogeneous catalysis. Although surface contraction has been established in monometallic systems, less is known for bimetallic systems, especially of nanoparticles. In this work, the bond length contraction on the surface of bimetallic nanoparticles is revealed by XAS in H2 at room temperature on dealloyed Pt-Sn nanoparticles, where most Sn atoms were oxidized and segregated to the surface when measured in air. The ...

Herein mixtures of cyclohexane and benzene have been investigated in both the bulk liquid phase and when confined in MCM-41 mesopores. The bulk mixtures have been studied using total neutron scattering (TNS), and the confined mixtures have been studied by a new flow-utilising, integrated TNS and NMR system (Flow NeuNMR), all systems have been analysed using empirical potential structure refinement (EPSR). The Flow NeuNMR setup provided precise time-resolved chemical sample composition through NM...

Abstract The combustion of methane using a plasma, a plasma-catalyst or a thermo-catalytic system was explored using a palladium supported on alumina catalyst. The three systems were compared in terms of their specific input energy (SIE*) and the potential presence of a synergistic effect between the plasma and the heterogeneous catalyst. For the plasma-catalyst system, an evaluation of the specific input of energy between systems using either a traditional AC or a nano-pulse power supply was al...

The valorisation of lignin has gained significant interest in bioenergy, which is driven by the abundance of the material coupled with the potential to form value-added compounds. As a result, the range of technologies deployed for this application has increased and more recently includes advanced oxidation processes such as photocatalysis. The complexity of lignin is challenging however, and therefore model compounds, which represent key linkages in the native structure, have become crucial as ...

Abstract Hydrothermal degreening and ageing procedures were applied to a tri-metal (Pt-Pd-Rh) fully formulated lean NOX Trap catalyst to evaluate the effects of thermal stress on the performances and structural properties. X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) analysis revealed that the average size of the platinum particles was the same after degreening and ageing treatments. The formation of a new phase of alloyed Pt-Pd was observed to increase with the thermal load. The size of the ceria par...
