Nitrogenoxides (NOx, including NO and NOx) are a group of hazardous, toxic and harmfulgasses, which have an adverse effect on both environment and human health,e.g., acid rain, photochemical smog, and affecting the human respiratorysystem. The NOx concentration in most of the EUcities exceeds the EU annual limit value (40 μg/m3). Around40% of...

Garcia Santaclara, J. (author)
The fascinating chemical and physical properties of MOFs have recently stimulated exploration of their application for photocatalysis. Despite the intense research effort, the efficiencies of most photocatalytic MOFs for solar fuel generation are still very modest. In this introduction we analyse the current status of the field and stress the...

The production of most industrially important chemicals involves catalysis. Depending on the difference in phases between the catalysts and reactants, one distinguishes homogenous catalysis and heterogeneous catalysis, with the latter being more attractive in real applications, due to the easy separation of products from catalysts and reusing...

This thesis focuses on the development of functional Porous Organic Frameworks (POFs) for various catalytic applications. POF supported molecular catalysts allow to combine the advantages of both homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts, offering excellent prospects in the quest to heterogenize homogeneous catalysts. The framework tunability of...

The production of renewable chemicals is gaining attention over the past few years. The natural resources
from which they can be derived in a sustainable way are most abundant in sugars, cellulose and hemi
cellulose. These highly functionalized molecules need to be de-functionalized in order to be feedstocks for
the chemical industry...

The objectives of this PhD project are to address the challenges of in-situ TEM and introduce a new generation of in-situ TEM equipment. In Chapter 2 the in-situ TEM facilities are introduced, focusing on the nanoreactor that has gone through quite some development stages during this project. Several types of in-situ TEM nanoreactors were...

The research strategy followed in this work was inspired by natural photosynthesis that, for simplicity, can be divided into three principal steps: (i) efficient light absorption at wavelengths abundant in the solar light; (ii) long-lived charge separation achieved by funnelling of the photogenerated electrons away from the light-absorbing...

Electrocatalytic reduction of CO2 is one possibility to solve the electrical energy storage problem and decrease the amount of CO2. Copper is the only metal that has been reported to produce hydrocarbons in the electrochemical CO2 reduction at ambient pressure and temperature. External parameters (potential, temperature and electrolyte), copper...

De Lange, M.F. (author)
A novel class of materials, i.e. Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs), has successfully been developed that is extremely suited for application in heat pumps and chillers. They have a superior performance over commercial sorbents and may potentially contribute to considerable energy savings worldwide. Globally about 33 % of the energy consumption is...

The water–gas shift (WGS) is a reversible, moderately exothermic reaction (1) and is used for the production of hydrogen from CO rich gas streams (synthesis gas). CO + H2O ? CO2 + H2 ?H°= –41 kJ mol?1 (1) This research has focused on the catalyst development of water–gas shift (WGS) reaction and understanding the catalytic activity contributions...

Design and development of catalyst formulations that maximize the direct production of liquid fuels by combining Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (FTS), hydrocarbon cracking, and isomerization into one single catalyst particle (bifunctional FTS catalyst) have been investigated in this thesis. To achieve this aim, a second functionality (other than FTS)...

The last few decades have witnessed the unprecedented explosion of a new research field built around Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs). MOFs are crystalline porous solids consisting of metal ions (also named clusters) coordinated to often rigid organic molecules (also called ligands) to form one- two-, or three- dimensional structures. This...

Bakker, J.J.W. (author)
The performance of heterogeneous catalysts in multiphase reactions in general is governed by different types of extrinsic and intrinsic structural effects on all length scales, i.e., on the macro- (m to cm), meso- (mm to µm), and microlevel (nm). This PhD research, with a catalysis-engineering approach, focused on several of these multiscale...

This research work on the catalytic dehydrogenation of ethylbenzene (EB) to styrene (ST) had a primary goal of developing improved catalysts for dehydrogenation processes both in CO2 as well as with O2 that can compete with the conventional dehydrogenation process in steam. In order to achieve this goal, all these processes need to be properly...

This thesis describes the synthesis, characterization, and application of Hydroxy Sodalite (H-SOD) membranes in selective separation of water from aqueous solutions and reaction media. The emphasis has been put on the development of a tight membrane film that could be primarily used for water separation only, followed by an explorative study on...

Around 2004 the annual energy consumption of the Dutch (petro-)chemical industry was estimated to be 460 PJ of which 200 PJ could be allocated to separation processes [1]. In 2009, 15% of the global energy consumption was required for separation and purification processes to produce commodities. Moreover, it is expected that in 2040 the global...
