 Description of RTD activities
- Design, preparation and characterization of different types of catalysts (zeolites, mixed oxides, TiO2, transition metal oxide complex V2O5-WO3/TiO2, etc.)
- Investigation of catalytic properties (activity, stability, selectivity); Influence of different parameters of catalyst preparation on the catalytic properties, correlation of physico-chemical and catalytical properties; Reaction mechanism and kinetics
- Reaction performing in different types of catalytic reactors (fixed-bed tubular reactor, monolithic reactor, photocatalytic annular reactor, etc.); Investigation of the influences of different reaction variables on the reactor performance
- Detailed description of the reactors using different multidimensional heterogeneous models; Influence of interphase and intraphase mass transfer on the overall behavior of the reactor; Validation of the proposed models by comparison with the experimental data; Development of new catalysts and catalytic processes for environmental protection
