Journal Article
Yentekakis, I. V., Goula, G., Hatzisymeon, M., Betsi-Argyropoulou, I., Botzolaki, G., Kousi, K., …Lambert, R. M. (2019). Effect of support oxygen storage capacity on the catalytic performance of Rh nanoparticles for CO2 reforming of methane. Applied catalysis. B, Environmental, 243, 490-501. doi:10.1016/j.apcatb.2018.10.048

The effects of the metal oxide support on the activity, selectivity, resistance to carbon deposition and high temperature oxidative aging on the Rh-catalyzed dry reforming of methane (DRM) were investigated. Three Rh catalysts supported on oxides cha... Read More

The effect of the morphology of Ir particles supported on γ-Al2O3, 8 mol%Y2O3-stabilized ZrO2 (YSZ), 10 mol%Gd2O3-doped CeO2 (GDC) and 80 wt%Al2O3–10 wt%CeO2–10 wt%ZrO2 (ACZ) on their stability on oxidative conditions, the associated metal–support in... Read More

Critical role of oxygen in silver-catalyzed Glaser-Hay coupling on Ag(100) under vacuum and in solution on Ag particles (2017)
Journal Article
Orozco, N., Kyriakou, G., Beaumont, S. K., Fernandez Sanz, J., Holgado, J. P., Taylor, M. J., …Lambert, R. M. (2017). Critical role of oxygen in silver-catalyzed Glaser-Hay coupling on Ag(100) under vacuum and in solution on Ag particles. ACS Catalysis, 7(5), 3113-3120. doi:10.1021/acscatal.7b00431

The essential role of oxygen in enabling heterogeneously catalyzed Glaser-Hay coupling of phenylacetylene on Ag(100) was elucidated by STM, laboratory and synchrotron photoemission, and DFT calculations. In the absence of coadsorbed oxygen, phenylace... Read More
