Research Grants & Projects

Formation of light alkenes through the cracking of naphtha on zeolite catalyst
Funded Research
Project Year: 2009 - 2010
Production ofhydrogen through the decomposition of ammonia on intermetallic compound catalysts
Project Year: 2009   
Formation of intermetallic compound particles in nano-size space and their catalytic properties
Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research
Project Year: 2005   
Fine particles of Ni-Ge and Pt-Ge intermetallic compounds were prepared inside the pores of mesoporous silica MCM-41. The catalytic properties of these intermetallic compounds were studied for hydrogenation reactions.
Synthesis of trans-stilbene by the hydrogenation of diphenylacetylene on metal-supported zeolite catalysts.
Project Year: 2007   
Trans-stilbene was formed through the hydrogenation-isomerization of diphenylacetylene on the mixture of Pd3Bi/SiO2 and H-USY zeolite catalysts.
Prepartion of nano-size particles of intermetallic compound catalysts on supports by liquid-phase reduction.
Project Year: 2007   
Fine particles (d<10 nm) of PtCu intermetallic compound were obtained by liquid-phase reduction on the surface of alumina. They showed much higher catalytic activity than Pt/alumina in the preferential oxidation of CO in hydrogen.
