© 2018 As the amount of waste plastic increases, thermo-chemical conversion of plastics provides an economic flexible and environmental friendly method to manage recycled plastics, and generate valuable materials, such as carbon nanotubes (CNTs). The... Read More

Simultaneous removal of NO and Hg⁰ using Fe and Co co-doped Mn-Ce/TiO₂ catalysts (2018)
Journal Article
Shen, B., Zhu, S., Zhang, X., Chi, G., Patel, D., Si, M., & Wu, C. (2018). Simultaneous removal of NO and Hg⁰ using Fe and Co co-doped Mn-Ce/TiO₂ catalysts. Fuel, 224, (241-249). doi:10.1016/j.fuel.2018.03.080. ISSN 0016-2361

Fe and Co co-doped Mn-Ce/TiO2 (MCT) catalysts were investigated for the simultaneous removal of nitric oxide (NO) and elemental mercury (Hg0) at reaction temperature lower than 200 °C. The catalysts were characterized by Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET),... Read More

Probing astrophysically important states in the ²⁶Mg nucleus to study neutron sources for the s process (2016)
Journal Article
Talwar, R., Adachi, T., Berg, G. P. A., Bin, L., Bisterzo, S., Couder, M., …Yosoi, M. (2016). Probing astrophysically important states in the ²⁶Mg nucleus to study neutron sources for the s process. Physical Review C, 93(5), doi:10.1103/physrevc.93.055803. ISSN 2469-9985

Background: The ²²Ne(α,n) ²⁵Mg reaction is the dominant neutron source for the slow neutron capture process (s process) in massive stars, and contributes, together with C¹³(α,n)O¹⁶, to the production of neutrons for the s process in asymptotic giant... Read More
