Design of metal-single site zeolite catalysts and their application in selective catalytic reduction of NO and oxidative dehydrogenation of propane
Stanislaw Dzwigaj, Sorbonne University, France

Abstract: The metal ions well dispersed at the zeolite framework are considered to be active sites of different catalytic processes. Therefore, the incorporation of these metals into zeolites as isolated tetrahedral sites appears to be an important task. We have shown that the incorporation of transition metal ions into vacant T-atom sites of framework zeolite is strongly favor [....] » Read More
