Nanoporous marvels | Introduction to nanoporous materials and their application in electrocatalysis and gas sensing technologies

13 January  2024

Nanoporous materials or layers refer to substances with structures characterized by a network of pores or voids at the nanometer scale, typically ranging from 1 to 100 nm in size. The nanoporous nature of these materials provides an exceptionally high surface area relative to their volume, which is a key factor in their utility.

The Future of Heterogeneous Catalyst

2 September 2019

Heterogeneous catalysis is at the nucleus of modern energy and chemical industries, a process in which a gas- or liquid-phase reaction is performed over a solid catalyst. Evidenced by revenue that reaches the trillions of dollars per year.To reduce our footprint on the earth and enter a new era where advances in technology are used to achieve this, conventional techniques processes that are typically more than fifty years old should be carefully reviewed.
