BASF inaugurates expanded mobile emissions catalysts manufacturing operation in Shanghai


BASF inaugurated its expanded mobile emissions catalysts manufacturing operation in Shanghai, China, further strengthening the company’s regional presence and its position as a leading supplier to the automotive industry. The inauguration event culminates a three-year expansion project which ...


Unique catalysts for hydrogen fuel cells synthesized in ordinary kitchen microwave oven


Swedish and Chinese researchers show how a unique nano-alloy composed of palladium nano-islands embedded in tungsten nanoparticles creates a new type of catalysts for highly efficient oxygen reduction, the most important reaction in hydrogen fuel cells. Their results are published in the ...


Improvements in fuel cell design

Fuel cells could possibly replace the batteries of mobile phones and laptop computers, and the UPV


Fuel cells are totally appropriate systems for substituting the batteries of mobile phones, laptop computers and vehicles. They turn the energy resulting from the combining of hydrogen and oxygen into electrical power, with water vapour being the only waste product. In other words, they generate ...

Leaving the island: Unusual desorption behavior on the surface of catalysts


The desorption of reaction products, for example, from the surface of an exaust catalyst, up to now was looked upon as a simple random process. Following this theory, the desorption events should be distributed randomly over the entire surface. However, many measurement results contradicted this ...


Succeeding faster: Ceresana analyzes the global market for catalysts


Fertilizers, detergents and crude oil products in general: Catalysts are need almost always. More than 80% of products in the chemical industry are manufactured using catalytic processes. Accordingly, the economic importance of catalysts, substances used to speed up chemical reactions, is high. ...
