In this study, the performance of an In2O3/ZrO2 catalyst for hydrogenation of CO2 to methanol is reported in presence of typical impurities of industrial CO2 feed gas streams. Experiments were performed with defined amounts of SO2, H2S, NO2, NH3 and hydrocarbons purposely added to the reaction mixture under industrially relevant conditions (225-275...
A promising approach for chemical energy storage from fluctuating renewable electricity is methanol synthesis from CO2 and hydrogen in a slurry reactor concept, due to efficient heat storage and easy reactor control. In combination with a promising In2O3/ZrO2 catalyst and mineral oil as carrier liquid, efficient methanol production under a wide ran...
This contribution deals with a new atom efficient two-stage production route for green methanol (MeOH) from biomass that includes biomass conversion to methyl formate (MF)/formic acid (FA) mixtures followed by hydrogenolysis to...
In this work, we demonstrate RuP2-MoP catalysts being highly stable and selective for the dehydrogenation of long-chain alkanes like n-heptane. Compared to a monometallic MoP catalyst, the bimetallic system substantially increases n-heptene selectivity from 40% towards 80%. This effect can be traced back to a reduced surface acidity, suppressing th...
The photocatalytic activity and selectivity of novel binary and ternary composite nanostructures from polyethylene oxide‐stabilized zinc oxide (PEO–ZnO) with and without polyoxometalate (H4[Si(W3O10)4], POM) are determined in aqueous solution under UV‐light. Mono‐ and di‐COOH‐end‐functionalized PEO polymers are used as surface modifiers, influencin...
Im Rahmen der vorliegenden Arbeit sollen die wissenschaftlichen Kenntnisse über In2O3-basierte Methanolsynthesekatalysatoren erweitert und die Anwendbarkeit solcher Systeme für die industrielle Methanolsynthese verbessert werden. Dazu werden zunächst optimale Prozessbedingungen des In2O3/ZrO2-Katalysators im klassischen Festbettreaktor untersucht u...
