In situ and operando investigation of the palladium nanocatalysts during hydrogenation of hydrocarbons under realistic industrial conditions

From 20.03.2018 21:00:00 till 31.12.2019 23:59:00
Grant holder: Aram Bugaev
Responsible: Oleg Usoltsev

This project is aimed to investigate hydride and carbide formation in palladium nanoparticles during hydrogenation of hydrocarbons (alkynes, alkenes) under realistic industrial conditions by means of synchrotron-based in situ and operando X-ray absorption spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction complemented by theoretical modeling of atomic and electronic structure by means of DTF and FDM approaches.
