Development of Sinter-Resistant Core–Shell LaMnxFe1–xO3@mSiO2 Oxygen Carriers for Chemical Looping Combustion
This work investigates the possibility of using LaMn0.7Fe0.3O3.15@mSiO2 as oxygen carriers for chemical looping combustion (CLC). CLC is a new combustion technique with inherent separation of CO2 from atmospheric N2. LaMn0.7Fe0.3O3.15@mSiO2 core–shell materials were prepared by coating a layer of mesostructured silica around the agglomerated perovskite particles. The oxygen carriers were characterized using different methods, such as X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), N2 sorption, hydrogen temperature-programmed reduction (H2-TPR), and temperature-programmed desorption of oxygen (TPD-O2). The reactivity and stability of the carrier materials were tested in a special reactor, allowing for short contact time between the fluidized carrier and the reactive gas [Chemical Reactor Engineering Centre (CREC) fluidized riser simulator]. Multiple reduction–oxidation cycles were performed. TEM images of the carriers showed that a perfect mesoporous sil...
We recently generalized the formerly alignment-dependent multivariate image analysis applied to quantitative structure–activity relationships (MIA-QSAR) method through the application of the discrete Fourier transform (DFT), allowing for its application to noncongruent and structurally dive ... more
Poly-ADP-ribosylation (PARylation) is a protein posttranslational modification (PTM) that is critically involved in many biological processes that are linked to cell stress responses. It is catalyzed by a class of enzymes known as poly-ADP-ribose polymerases (PARPs). In particular, PARP1 is ... more
This review focuses on the type A cytochrome c oxidases (CcO), which are found in all mitochondria and also in several aerobic bacteria. CcO catalyzes the respiratory reduction of dioxygen (O2) to water by an intriguing mechanism, the details of which are fairly well understood today as a r ... more
