To improve the commercial and ecological efficiency of your catalytic processes, you must develop better catalyst materials and optimize the reaction conditions. Now there’s a new analytical technology that makes this difficult job easier. Join this sponsored webinar to learn about high-pressure thermogravimetry and how it can help you achieve the highest reaction yields and lowest energy consumption and avoid unwanted catalyst deactivation.
In this introductory session, you’ll learn how to use high-pressure thermogravimetry to optimize catalytic reactions and materials under realistic reaction conditions. You’ll understand how reliable and simple-to-apply it is, and how this field-proven analytical technology provides tremendous benefits to researchers when applied to catalysis. This webinar also addresses steam to carbon ratio and catalyst coking as well as how to optimize reaction conditions— such as temperature, pressure and the composition of the reaction atmosphere, including steam. By the end of this session, you’ll understand and be prepared to take advantage of this exciting and efficient tool for catalytical material and process optimization.
You’ll learn how to:
- Improve productivity and efficiency of heterogeneous catalytic reactions with user-friendly testing
- Avoid expensive process shutdowns caused by catalyst deactivation
- Optimize reaction conditions to achieve maximum productivity AND understand how reaction conditions initiate unwanted catalyst activation or deactivation
- Characterize reactivity and active sites of catalysts with gravimetric data in sorption and TPD/TPR/TPO experiments
- Integrate high-pressure thermogravimetry with online mass spectrometry to determine the reaction yield while monitoring the catalyst weight
Thomas is the Application Specialist for the Rubotherm Series Thermal Analysis product line at Waters' TA Instruments division. He joined Rubotherm in 2013 and continued working in this position with TA after Rubotherm was acquired by TA in 2016. After obtaining his PhD in analytical chemistry, Thomas started his career as post-doc at the EERC (Energy & Environmental Research Center) at UND in Grand Forks, ND.Read more
