Case Studies: services in heterogeneous catalysisA few non-confidentail examples for the services we do in heterogeneous catalysis and related areas
Temperature Programmed Oxidation of Cu Catalyst
We studied a Cu-based catalyst and correlated oxidation state of Cu with catalytic performance
Pyridine Chemisorption analysis service for characterisation of acid sites
A case study on the pyridine chemisorption services we perform which determine the number of the corresponding acid sites in a material.
Raman Spectroscopy for online analysis: effect of gases, solids, laser power, aquisition time, signal/noise and more….
We investigated Raman spectroscopy for online analysis by monitoring hydrogenation reactions through relative peak intensities, subsequently, determine the concentration of components.
Catalyst for fuel cell applications
We have developed a monolith-based fuel cell catalyst for sustainable remote energy generation.
X-Ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS)
We completed in situ synchrotron studies of a customer’s catalyst at the Diamond Light Source Facility.
Characterisation-directed kilo catalyst scale-up
We manufactured 10 kg catalyst using characterisation to validate the scale-up procedure from lab to manufacturing processes.
Cascading imine formation and hydrogenation
Stoli cascaded imine formation and hydrogenation; intensified process to maximise rate, and catalyst utilisation.
Developing a catalyst for a highly explosive reaction
After 100 long-term runs and building a bespoke reactor system to manage safety risks, we developed a stable catalyst with months at least 2 month lifetime.
Coating methodologies for new processes
With Stoli proprietary coating technology, we developed a novel catalyst coating for an intensified reactor for a more efficient and sustainable process.
Process intensification in hydrogenation
Short residence time and high temperature – an impossible combination for batch – allowed increasing specific reaction rates 8-fold in flow with the same product quality.
