Project: Ab initio investigation on the activity and selectivity of single active sites in nanoporous materials
01-OCT-11 – 30-SEP-13
This research proposal aims at designing zeotype catalysts which are active towards a given conversion and selective in producing the desired product. The methanol-to-olefins process is taken as a case study. The reactivity and contribution of organic compounds in the production of hydrocarbons will be assessed in different zeotype catalysts. Results will be validated with experimental and spectroscopic data.
