Stabilization of Pd3−xIn1+x Polymorphs with Pd-like Crystal Structure and their Superior Performance as Catalysts for Semi-Hydrogenation of Alkynes. ChemCatChem, 11(12), 2909-2918. https://doi.org/10.1002/cctc.201900391

Selective hydrogenation (semi-hydrogenation) reactions of alkynes rely on Pd-based catalysts to provide the correct pathway to favour formation of double bonds and avoid full hydrogenation to single bonds. Here, we present the preparation and charact...

International journal of multiphase flow, 116, 1-14. https://doi.org/10.1016...tiphaseflow.2019.04.001

Gas-liquid flows are affected strongly by both the liquid and gas properties and the pipe diameter, which control features and the stability of flow patterns and their transitions. For this reason, empirical models describing the flow dynamics can be...
