  • Publication number: 20200338539
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is to provide a metal-substituted beta zeolite that exhibits a more excellent catalytic performance than conventional one, and a method for producing the same. The present invention provides a metal-substituted beta zeolite by subjecting an alkali metal-form beta zeolite produced without using an organic structure-directing agent to ion exchange with ammonium ion and then, using a filter cake procedure, to ion exchange with copper ion or iron(II) ion. The present invention also provides a metal-substituted beta zeolite which has been ion exchanged with copper ion or iron(II) ion and in which the amount of Lewis acid sites is greater than the amount of Bronsted acid sites when the amount of Bronsted acid sites and the amount of Lewis acid sites are measured by ammonia infrared-mass spectroscopy temperature-programmed desorption on the as-produced state.

  • Patent number: 10817756
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a determination, first, second and third receiving, and first and second checking units, and a controller. When a determination result matches a first determination result, the first checking unit outputs a matching determination result as the final output. The second checking unit checks the first determination result against a second. The first and second determination results are respectively received by the first and second receiving units. When the first determination result matches the second, the second checking unit outputs the matching determination result as the final output. When the input information is received, the controller operates the determination, first receiving, and first checking units. When it is determined that the determination result does not match the first determination result, the controller operates selectively one of a unit set and the third receiving unit. The unit set is constituted by the second receiving and checking units.

  • Patent number: 10784514
    Abstract: Provided is conductive carbon that gives an electrical storage device having a high energy density. This conductive carbon includes a hydrophilic part, and the contained amount of the hydrophilic part is 10 mass % or more of the entire conductive carbon. When performing a rolling treatment on an active material layer including an active material particle and this conductive carbon formed on a current collector during manufacture of an electrode of an electric storage device, the pressure resulting from the rolling treatment causes this conductive carbon to spread in a paste-like form and increase in density. The active material particles approach each other, and the conductive carbon is pressed into gaps formed between adjacent active material particles, filling the gaps. As a result, the amount of active material per unit volume in the electrode obtained after the rolling treatment increases, and the electrode density increases.
