Thermal Characterization tests are carried out on the Micromeritics AutoChem II equipment.
TEMPERATURE PROGRAMMED DESORPTION (TPD)
Characterization of supported solid catalysts on AutoChemII by Micromeritics. TPD tests allow the characterization of catalyst acid centers by measuring its surface acidity and determining the distribution and strength of the active sites.
TEMPERATURE PROGRAMMED OXIDATION (TPO)
Programmed oxidation temperature analysis (TPO) with thermal conductivity detector and different gas compositions: 5% O2 / He. TPO analyses allow quantifying the oxidation capacity of the active metal catalyst.
TEMPERATURE PROGRAMMED REDUCTION (TPR)
Programmed reduction temperature analysis (TPR) with thermal conductivity detector and different gas compositions: 10% H2 / Ar. TPR analyses allow quantifying the reduction capacity of the active metal catalyst.
