100 Kinetics, Design and Modeling of Fischer-Tropsch Catalysts and Reactions I

Wednesday, March 16, 2011: 8:00 AM
Horner (Hyatt Regency Chicago)
This session will focus on advances in catalyst development and reaction kinetics, including all aspects of the design, characterization, and modeling of Fischer Tropsch synthesis catalysts and reactions for gas-to-liquids (GTL), coal-to-liquids (CTL), and biomass-to-liquids (BTL) applications.
