Recent findings have suggested the plausible involvement of formic acid (HCOOH) as a gaseous molecular shuttle in WGS reaction , which is specifically promoted by oxides (ZnO, CeO2, TiO2) that are known to selectively dehydrate HCOOH (microreverse of HCOOH formation from CO and H2O) and metals (Cu, Pt, Pd, Au) that do dehydrogenation (to CO2 and H2 in WGS) and hydrogenation (to methanol). The intermediate of interest (HCOOH) is formed in situ from CO/H2O mixtures on metals and oxides that catalyze selective HCOOH dehydration, and thus its microscopic reverse. Subsequent HCOOH dehydrogenation would lead to the formation of H2 and CO2, completing a water-gas shift (WGS ) turnover without requiring interfacial contact among functions. A notable promotional effect has been recently detected in catalyst without requiring atomic contact, meaning that the two functions need to be “close” but not in atomic contact but involving a molecular carrier. The mechanistic details of such diffusion-mediated routes would unveil new opportunities for the specific channelling of such intermediates towards H2 and CO2, through precise positioning of a function that forms HCOOH from CO/H2O reactants and another function, present beyond atomic contact but within diffusion distances, that dehydrogenates gaseous HCOOH to H2 and CO2. Summarizing, this research would permit controlling the WGS process in order to increase H2 production worldwide. The proposed research will address the formation and scavenging of reactive and thermodynamically unstable intermediates without a C-C bond, which can be formed from C1 molecules (specifically natural gas or biogenic feedstocks), through the precise positioning for their formation and scavenging functions. The researcher U. De La Torre will be seconded to the LSAC group at UC Berkeley (USA) under the supervision of Prof. Enrique Iglesia, and will return to the University of the Basque Country (Spain) under the supervision of Prof. González-Velasco.
Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "COUPC1" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (email@example.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
