  • Publication number: 20140187410
    Abstract: An oxidation catalyst includes a support including particles of an alkaline earth salt, and first particles including a palladium compound on the support. The oxidation catalyst can also include precious metal group (PMG) metal particles in addition to the first particles intermixed together on the support. A gas permeable polymer that provides a continuous phase can completely encapsulate the particles and the support. The oxidation catalyst may be used as a gas sensor, where the first particles are chemochromic particles.

  • Patent number: 8753998
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for preparing a titanium-silicalite molecular sieve, and a method for preparing cyclohexanone oxime using the titanium-silicalite molecular sieve. The method for preparing a titanium-silicalite molecular sieve includes the steps of preparing a mixture of a titanium source, a silicon source and a template agent, wherein the titanium source has a structure of formula (I); heating the mixture to form a gel mixture; mixing the gel mixture with water; heating the gel mixture mixed with the water in a water bath; and calcining the gel mixture mixed with the water. The method using the titanium-silicalite molecular sieve for preparing cyclohexanone oxime results in high conversion rate and high selectivity.
