  • Patent number: 10392567
    Abstract: An aspect of the present disclosure is a method that includes contacting an oxygenated compound and hydrogen (H2) with a solid catalyst, where the solid catalyst includes a metal carbide that includes a first transition metal, and the contacting converts at least a portion of the oxygenated compound to a deoxygenated compound. In some embodiments of the present disclosure, the metal carbide may include at least one of Mo2C and/or W2C.

  • Patent number: 10350583
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a method that includes heating a mixture that includes a metal phenylphosphine-containing precursor that includes at least one of Mo(PPh3)2(CO)4, Pd(PPh3)4, Ru(PPh3)3Cl2, Ru(PPh3)2(CO)2Cl2, Co(PPh3)(CO)2(NO), and/or Rh(PPh3)2(CO)Cl, a surfactant, and a solvent. The heating is to a target temperature to form a heated mixture containing a metal phosphide nanoparticle that includes at least one of MoP, Ru2P, Co2P, Rh2P, and/or Pd3P, and the metal phosphide nanoparticle is not hollow.

  • Patent number: 9803142
    Abstract: Catalysts and processes designed to convert DME and/or methanol and hydrogen (H2) to desirable liquid fuels are described. These catalysts produce the fuels efficiently and with a high selectivity and yield, and reduce the formation of aromatic hydrocarbons by incorporating H2 into the products. Also described are process methods to further upgrade these fuels to higher molecular weight liquid fuel mixtures, which have physical properties comparable with current commercially used liquid fuels.

  • Publication number: 20130045865
    Abstract: A catalyst composition contains an active metal on a support including a high surface area substrate and an interstitial compound, for example molybdenum carbide. Pt—Mo2C/Al2O3 catalysts are described. The catalyst systems and compositions are useful for carrying out reactions generally related to the water gas shift reaction (WGS) and to the Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis (FTS) process.
