Scientists find an alternate route towards CO2 reduction

Using the DENSsolutions Climate system, scientists found for the first time that endothermic reactions can be achieved at room temperature using localized surface plasmons. This paramount discovery is a leap forward in the fight against climate change and global warming.

In-situ imaging provides detailed insights on the dynamics of SMSI induced overlayer formation on catalyst particles

SMSI is a surface phenomena in which the migration of partially reduced oxide species, from the oxide support, covers the nanoparticle and thereby alters the chemisorption and catalytic properties. It can give rise to desired synergistic effects and increased selectivity. Now, using in situ TEM combined with other analytical techniques and theoretical modelling, researchers at ETH Zurich have been able to create a real time view of the SMSI phenomena.

Improved insight into catalytic reduction of NOx for industrial processes

There is a big opportunity for the design and development of sustainable catalysts for low-temperature NOx removal in the steel, cement and glass industries. Researchers Dr. Yong Wang et al. from Zhejiang University made a recent breakthrough using critical information obtained by In Situ TEM to design a MnOx/CeO2 nanorod (NR) catalyst with outstanding resistance to SO2 deactivation.
