Nanoporous Materials for Novel Catalysts

Abstract:
“We are learning how to prepare meso-porous nanostructured material that could be used as a tool for understanding how catalysts work and how to make them more selective,” says Steve Overbury of the Surface Chemistry and Heterogeneous Catalysis Group in ORNL’s Chemical Sciences Division (CSD). “We hope to find out how the size of a metal or oxide particle affects its catalytic reactivity. Also, we want to know whether confining particles makes them more effective catalysts.”
