  • Patent number: 11351521
    Abstract: A supported core-shell bimetallic catalyst with high selectivity, and preparation method and an application thereof are provided. SBA-15 is used as support, platinum (Pt) is used as active component, 3d transition metal is used as cocatalysts. In the core-shell bimetallic catalyst formed by the 3d transition metal and Pt, in one aspect, by the addition of the 3d metal in the core, the d-band center of surface Pt atoms is down shifted, and the absorption of propylene is weakened, thereby improving the selectivity for propylene. In another aspect, the use of Pt is reduced by the addition of the 3d transition metal, improving the utilization of Pt. The catalyst is applicable in a hydrogen atmosphere, has a good effect on the preparation of propylene by propane dehydrogenation and causes high dehydrogenation activity under high temperature conditions. The total selectivity for propylene may reach 85%, which achieves high propylene selectivity.

  • Patent number: 11344873
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a multi-layered composite thin film material formed from graphene quantum dots (GQDs) and metal nanocrystals in a layer-by-layer design, wherein the metal nanocrystals can be selected from the group consisting of Ru, Rh, Os, Ir, Pd, Au, Ag and Pt. In a preferred embodiment, the multi-layered composite thin film material is prepared via a facile, green, and easily accessible layer-by-layer (LbL) self-assembly strategy. In this strategy, positively charged GOQDs and negatively charged metal nanocrystals are alternately and uniformly integrated with each other in a “face-to-face” stacked fashion under substantial electrostatic attractive interaction, and then the obtained GOQDs/metal composite thin film is calcined into GQDs/metal composite thin film. The composite thin film material disclosed herein may be used to catalyse a wide range or reactions, including selective reduction of aromatic nitro compounds in water and electrocatalytic oxidation of methanol at ambient conditions.

  • Patent number: 11325106
    Abstract: Ceramic compositions with catalytic activity are provided, along with methods for using such catalytic ceramic compositions. The ceramic compositions correspond to compositions that can acquire increased catalytic activity by cyclic exposure of the ceramic composition to reducing and oxidizing environments at a sufficiently elevated temperature. The ceramic compositions can be beneficial for use as catalysts in reaction environments involving swings of temperature and/or pressure conditions, such as a reverse flow reaction environment. Based on cyclic exposure to oxidizing and reducing conditions, the surface of the ceramic composition can be converted from a substantially fully oxidized state to various states including at least some dopant metal particles supported on a structural oxide surface.
