Fabrication of microfluidic system for micro direct alcohol fuel cell: deep X-ray lithography of three-dimensional microstructures on a stainless steel

, , , , , ,
Micro direct alcohol fuel cell, a type of micro fuel cell, is an alternative energy resource which generates electricity without fuel combusting. The micro fuel cell normally contains three parts of microchannels, electrodes, and membrane. [...]

A Mechanistic Investigation on 1,5- to 2,6-Dimethylnaphthalene Isomerization Catalyzed by Acidic Beta Zeolite: An ONIOM Study with a Newly Developed Density Functional Theory

, , , , , , ,
2,6-Dimethylnaphthalene (DMN) is the key intermediate in the synthesis of poly (ethylene naphthalate) (PEN), a high-performance polymeric material. The processes to produce 2,6-DMN have been the focus of numerous experimental investigations, yet there is no [...]

The Quantum Confinement Effect on the Adsorption and Reaction of Aliphatic and Aromatic Hydrocarbons on ‘Nano Reactor’ ZSM-5 Zeolite: A Newly Developed Density Functional Theory (DFT) Investigation

, , , , , ,
The quantum confinement effect on the adsorption and reaction mechanism of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons on H-ZSM-5 zeolite was studied for the first time with a newly developed functional, M06L. With this well calibrated method, [...]
