New method to decrease particle size

Abstract:
At the World Largest Invention Market this week, UPM researchers unveil a new method which significantly decreases the catalyst particle size to nanoparticle size. This method is the first such breakthrough in the world.

This week, University Putra Malaysia's team unveiled their latest inventions and products at the 34th International Exhibition of Inventions, New Techniques and Products in Geneva (April 2-6, 2008), also known as the World's Largest Market-Place for Inventions.

This research is on a new technique for significantly reducing the catalyst particle to nanoparticle size so that the surface area is greatly increased. This significant breakthrough is important because chemical reactions happen on the surface of catalyst. Therefore this allows the catalyst to operate at lower temperatures, higher yields and shorter preparation time

TITLE: Nanoparticle of Vanadium Phosphate Catalysts for Selective Oxidation of n-Butane to Malice Anhydride

RESEARCHERS: Prof. Dr. Taufiq Yap Yun Hin and Dr. Ali Asghar Rownaghi
