The processes integration does the treatment of wastewater polluted with pharmaceuticals a more efficient process. The adsorption of pollutants on different material, like carbon based or silica is one of the technologies more studied for [...]

Chemoselective Hydrogenolysis of Glycerol Catalyzed by Platinum on Carbonaceous Supports

, , , , , , , , , , , ,
Glycerol has been selectively converted into 1,2-propandiol in the presence of dihydrogen and heterogeneous Pt-based catalysts. These latter catalysts consist of small-size Pt-nanoparticles (NPs) (i.e. 1.0-1.5 nm,) obtained by a metal vapor synthesis, supported on [...]

Understanding Ru/CNT interactions: A rational design of Ru nanocatalysts

, , , , , , , , , ,
We report a detailed study on the nature of the ruthenium–carbon nanotube (Ru/CNT) interface in catalysts prepared from neutral Ru(0) organometallic precursors. Experimental data combined with density functional theory calculations allowed to conclude that both [...]
