Towards the rational design of nanoparticle catalysts
This research is focused on development of routes towards the rational design of nanoparticle catalysts. Primarily, it is focused on two main projects; (1) the use of imidazolium-based ionic liquids (ILs) as greener media ...
Quasi-homogeneous gold and bimetallic nanoparticle catalysts
The research in this thesis involves the synthesis and characterization of nanoparticle catalysts for oxidation reactions. It includes two projects: 1) polymer-stabilized Au, Pd and bimetallic AuPd nanoparticle catalysts ...
Synthesis, characterization, and catalytic applications of metallic nanoparticles in Tetraalkylphosphonium ionic liquids
In recent years, ionic liquids have emerged as one of the most promising alternatives to traditional volatile organic solvents when it comes to catalytic reactions. Stable metal nanoparticles suspended in ionic liquids, ...
DESIGNING SINTER RESISTANT MONOMETALLIC AND BIMETALLIC NANOMATERIALS FOR CATALYSIS
A major concern associated with the use of noble metal nanoparticles and clusters for catalysis is stability. Stabilizing ligands are used to prevent the agglomeration of nanoparticles synthesized under ambient conditions. ...
Single-Atom Catalysts: Syntheses, Characterization, and Catalytic Evaluation in Selective Oxidation and Hydrogenation Reactions
The focus of this thesis is on the synthesis, characterization, and application of Pd-based single-atom catalysts (SACs). An emphasis will be placed on the characterization of these materials through X-ray Absorption ...
