  • Patent number: 10427946
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates generally to a composition comprising at least one of iridium diboride and iridium monoboride, and methods of making such. The present disclosure also relates to a composition comprising iridium monoboride and at least one of (a) rows of single iridium atoms and/or (b) one or more clusters of iridium atoms, and methods of making such.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: October 27, 2015
    Date of Patent: October 1, 2019
    Assignee: University of Central Florida Research Foundation, Inc.
    Inventors: Nina Orlovskaya, Richard Blair, Zhilin Xie, David A. Cullen
  • Patent number: 10401023
    Abstract: The effects of different perovskite catalysts, catalytic active materials with a crystal structure of ABO3, on matrix stabilized combustion in a porous ceramic media are explored. Highly porous silicon carbide ceramics are used as a porous media for a catalytically enhanced matrix stabilized combustion of a lean mixture of methane and air. A stainless steel combustion chamber was designed incorporating a window for direct observation of the flame within the porous media. Perovskite catalytic enhancement of SiC porous matrix with La0.75Sr0.25Fe0.6Cr0.35Ru0.05O3; La0.75Sr0.25Fe0.6Cr0.4O3; La0.75Sr0.25Fe0.95Ru0.05O3; La0.75Sr0.25Cr0.95Ru0.05O3; and LaFe0.95Ru0.05O3, for example, were used to enhance combustion. The flammability limits of the combustion of methane and air were explored using both inert and catalytically enhanced surfaces of the porous ceramic media. By coating the SiC porous media with perovskite catalysts it was possible to lower the minimum stable equivalence ratio.
