Title: Linking Structure and Catalytic Properties of Heterogeneous and Automotive Catalysts for Environmental Applications
Speaker: Andy Holwell, Manager, Business Sector Industrial Research
Heterogeneous catalysts are a broad and versatile set of engineered porous materials of high surface area and surface functionalization. Automotive catalysts have removed billions of tons of pollutants from entering the atmosphere since their deployment in the 1970s and must withstand lifelong service lives. Their structure-property relationships are complex, determined by porosity, particle size, voids, and adhesion between substrate, washcoat base layer, and precious metal active components. Catalysts can therefore be challenging to image and characterize at high resolution and in three dimensions.
This webinar will discuss several novel 3D microscopy approaches to imaging the internal solid and pore structure of catalysts while using those 3D datasets to simulate the performance of gasoline particulate filters (GPF), polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFC), and metal organic frameworks (MOF). We will describe the use of x-ray microscopy for 3D imaging, pore analysis, and differentiation and quantification of washcoat and substrate layers on a honeycomb support.
