Abstract:

THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM WILL BE TO USE THE ADVANCED PREPARATION TECHNIQUES OF AEROGEL CATALYSTS TO PREPARE DIFFERENT MULTICOMPONENT CATALYTIC SYSTEMS FOR PARTIAL OXIDATION OF METHANE. THE MAJOR ADVANTAGES OF THIS PREPARATION PROCEDURE IS THAT METALLIC COMPONENTS CAN BE COMBINED IN ANY PROPORTIONS AND THAT IT PRODUCES HIGH SURFACE AREA AND HIGHLY POROUS MATERIALS. THE EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM WILL BE DIRECTED TOWARDS THE PREPARATION, CHARACTERIZATION, AND TESTING OF THESE AEROGEL CATALYSTS DURING PARTIAL OXIDATION AND OXIDATIVE DECOUPLING OF METHANE. THE INFORMATION GATHERED WILL BE USED TO DESIGNA CATALYTIC SYSTEM THAT WOULD OPTIMIZE THE PARTIAL OXIDATION OF METHANE.
