Hydrogenation of carbon dioxide using LEDs energy

The hydrogenation of carbon dioxide into products such as methanol is a process which has been commonly performed in the industry. However, the energy required to carry out the reaction is high, and alternative routes to perform it with renewable energies have still too low efficiencies. Improving the efficiency working with energies such as solar […]

Silica aerogels; alternative matrix for catalytic palladium nanoparticles

Effective routes to obtain more valuable products from biomass requires the design of efficient catalysts. Novel catalytic structures are therefore needed to overcome the present challenges. These novel structures require the integration of support active sites in a way that preserves their advantages and capabilities. Here, we introduce novel catalytic structures achieved by the integration […]

[Paper] The use of modelling to understand the mechanism of hydrogen peroxide direct synthesis from batch, semibatch and continuous reactor points of view

Hydrogen peroxide direct synthesis was experimentally studied in three different reactors, namely the batch, semibatch and trickle bed reactors (TBR), using a new promising catalyst based on Pd/K2621. Excellent results were obtained from the experimental point of view, achieving high H2O2 selectivities, around 90% for a short contact time in the batch reactor, 60% in […]
