Sulfur Poisoning Recovery on a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Anode Material through Reversible Segregation of Nickel

The perovskite-type mixed oxide La0.3Sr0.55Ti0.95Ni0.05O3−δ (LSTN) is demonstrated to exhibit the remarkable property of structural regeneration, where Ni can be reversibly exsoluted from the host perovskite lattice resulting in a regenerable Ni catalyst for solid oxide fuel cell anode applications. Results of catalytic tests for the…

Prominent role of mesopore surface area and external acid sites for the synthesis of polyoxymethylene dimethyl ethers

H-ZSM-5 zeolite has been shown to be an active catalyst for the synthesis of polyoxymethylene dimethyl ethers (OME). However, we demonstrated – by passivation of the zeolite’s external surface – that the reaction rate is limited due to severe internal diffusion limitations of the reactants and products. External acid sites…
