Materials Science: A Driver for Innovation in Applied Catalysis

  • I. E. Maxwell (a1) and P. W. Lednor (a2)

Abstract

This paper suggests that materials science is an important driver for innovation in applied catalysis. A wide range of catalytic materials is discussed in support of this thesis, with porosity as a common theme, and covering micro, meso and macro-porous materials. Applications of these materials is also wide-ranging, covering processes for the manufacture of fine chemicals or petrochemicals, and in oil refining, natural gas conversion and environmental processes. Further im-provents in the rate of innovation can be expected from new partnerships which are being formed, both at business and research levels.
