Global kinetic model for a Pt-Pd diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) is proposed and validated. Experimental data was obtained using different concentrations of the artificial gas mixtures which were passed over a bimetallic catalyst. Previous works of Voltz , Pandya , Sola  and many others...
This dissertation describes the use of a novel Pt deposition to prepare nickel- and carbon-supported platinum catalysts. The deposition is referred to herein as the platinum counter electrode deposition. The source of platinum is the sacrificial dissolution of a blacked platinum counter electrode...
Using data from artificial gas mixtures, global kinetic models for a platinum diesel oxidation catalyst are developed. The modelling of CO and C3H6 was inspired by the classical work of Voltz et al., while the modelling of NO and C3H6 was based on the earlier work of Pandya, Mulla et...
Oxidation of 2-propanol in alkaline electrolytes using platinum and ruthenium-based catalysts: prototype fuel cells and electrokinetics studiesDownload
Alcohols are an attractive alternative to hydrogen fuel in fuel cells. They are energy dense, easy to store, transport, and they are readily available. Alkaline fuel cells have several kinetic advantages over acidic fuel cells, but they are sensitive to carbon dioxide. The fuel most studied in...
Natural-gas fuelled catalytic heaters are commonly used in heating industrial space and remote location operations. Industrial units typically contain platinum that provides methane combustion at lower temperatures than non-catalytic burning. This work aimed to find a cost-efficient alternative...
This thesis is concerned with applications of modern solid-state NMR spectroscopy. Investigations of three quite different types are undertaken, each of which attempt to advance knowledge in the fields of chemistry and NMR. The goal of each project is to obtain insight into the effects of...
Thin film alloys and composites for application of hydrogen storage and oxygen reduction electrocatalystsDownload
This thesis encompasses aspects of alloy design, fabrication and characterization of thin films, which are employed as model systems to enhance hydrogen storage kinetics and thermodynamics in magnesium hydride and to enhance the catalytic efficacy and corrosion stability of platinum-based...
