Development of an experimental technique for characterizing the diffusion-reaction behavior of porous catalyst particles
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1983-05)
Catalytic Pyrolysis of Polyolefins
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-01-12)
Due to the migration of scientists towards green chemistry, landfilling and incineration will no longer be acceptable options for plastics waste disposal in the future. Consequently new methods for recycling plastics and ...
Novel Superacidic Ionic Liquid Catalysts for Arene Functionalization
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-08-15)
There is a continuing interest in the subject of arene carbonylation, especially in strong acids and environmentally-benign alternatives are sought to HF/BF3 and to AlCl3 as conversion agents. Ionic liquids offer a powerful ...
Structural effects in Fischer-Tropsch synthesis over bimetallic supported catalysts
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1985-08)
Single-Site Olefin Polymerization Catalysts via the Molecular Design of Porous Silica
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-03-25)
The major goals of this work were to: develop a new methodology for the preparation of site-isolated catalytic sites on a silica surface, prepare the first truly single-site supported metallocene/CGC polymerization catalyst, ...
Synthesis, characterization, and evaluation of silica and polymer supported catalysts for the production of fine chemicals
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-05-05)
Catalysis is an important field of study in chemical engineering and chemistry due to its application in a vast number of chemical transformations. Traditionally, catalysts have been developed as homogeneous molecular ...
Carbon Dioxide as a Benign Solvent for Homogeneous Catalyst Recovery and Recycle
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-07-19)
We have successfully investigated the use of CO2 as a miscibility switch to create an environment in which we can run a homogeneously catalyzed reaction while maintaining a heterogeneous separation. We explored the use ...
Polynuclear metal complexes as model mixed oxide catalysts
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1987-08)
Distinguishing between surface and solution catalysis for palladium catalyzed C-C coupling reactions: use of selective poisons
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-01-15)
This work focuses on understanding the heterogeneous/homogeneous nature of the catalytic species for a variety of immobilized metal precatalysts used for C-C coupling reactions. These precatalysts include: (i) tethered ...
Autocatalytic electroless gold deposition at low pH
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1995-08)
