© 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

Tailored mesoporous silica supports for Ni catalysed hydrogen production from ethanol steam reforming (2016)
Journal Article
Parlett, C. M., Aydin, A., Durndell, L. J., Isaacs, M. A., Lee, A. F., Parlett, C. M. A., …Wilson, K. (2017). Tailored mesoporous silica supports for Ni catalysed hydrogen production from ethanol steam reforming. Catalysis communications, 91, 76-79. doi:10.1016/j.catcom.2016.12.021

Mesoporous silica supported Ni nanoparticles have been investigated for hydrogen production from ethanol steam reforming. Ethanol reforming is structure-sensitive over Ni, and also dependent on support mesostructure; three-dimensional KIT-6 possessin... Read More
