Mechanism of Ammonia Synthesis on a Fe3Mo3N Surface

Ammonia (NH3) synthesis is a key industrial process, being of vital importance for the production of fertiliser, explosives, and fine chemicals. Traditional promoted Fe Haber-Bosch catalysts require high temperatures and pressures to operate, at great economic and environmental expense due to the significant energy consumption required for NH3 synthesis. Hence, there‚Ķ

Photocatalytic Foams for Organic Micropollutant Degradation 

When: 29 March 2022, 15:00 GMT The presence of micropollutants – pharmaceuticals, pesticides, phthalates and hormones – in water is a major global health and environmental challenge. Conventional wastewater processes are not capable of effectively removing these compounds, often found at very low concentrations, ¬Ķg L-1 or even ng L-1, leading‚Ķ

Charge compensation of entrapped organic cations in zeolites

Organic Structure Directing Agents (OSDAs) play a central role in synthesis of zeolites. Typically, OSDAs consist in tetraalkylammonium cations that are trapped inside of the voids of zeolites. The positive charge of the occluded cations is compensated i) by the isomorphic substitution of Si atoms by trivalent atoms resulting in…
