Catalysis

Accelerating or facilitating chemical reactions is pivotal for many conversions and industrial processes. Hydrocarbon cracking in oil refineries, the reduction of nitrogen oxides in car emissions by means of the platinum catalytic converter, the oxidation of hydrogen in fuel cells, biocatalytical enzymatic conversions or ammonia synthesis are only a few examples of how much industry relies on potent catalysts.

Industrial implementation of the ammonia synthesis - How does it work?

In September 1913, the first industrial-scale ammonia production plant came on stream at BASF in Ludwigshafen. The Haber-Bosch process for ammonia synthesis, which was first successfully operated at BASF Ludwigshafen in September 1913, was the decisive step into the age of mineral fertilizers. T ... more

The Chemistry of Vehicle Emissions Reduction & The Volkswagen Scandal

Volkswagen have been in the news for all the wrong reasons. The company admitted to installing a ‘defeat device’ in millions of cars which made it appear in emissions tests that they emitted far lower levels of particular pollutants than they actually did in normal road conditions. Plenty of article more

Making Reactions Faster

How different factors can affect how quickly a reaction happens is a common topic in the chemistry curriculum. This graphic serves as a convenient summary for teachers and students alike of what these different factors are, and how and why they affect the rate of a reaction. However, it’s not only o more
