Nanostructured Particles for Catalysis

Tuesday, October 18, 2011: 8:30 AM
200 A (Minneapolis Convention Center)

Heterogeneous catalysis is a crucial technology for a wide range of applications: it can be considered as one of the most successful applications of nanoscience. Most catalysts, developed predominantly by trail-and-error method, consist of nanometre-sized particles dispersed on a high–surface area support. The current progress in nanoscience could lead to substantially more efficient catalyst development. This session invites theoretical and experimental reports on the development of nanostructured particles for catalysis using chemical reaction engineering, particle technology, surface science or thin-film chemistry. Both papers on gas phase and liquid phase methods are encouraged.
