Reports: ND648797-ND6: Catalytic Mechanisms for Hydrogen Production by Methanol Steam Reforming

H. Guo, PhD, University of New Mexico

We continue our study of surface reactions related to the methanol steam reforming using density functional theory. These new studies deals with the influence of surface composition, defects, and role played by the support. Collaborations our experimental colleagues helped us to elucidate many of the key issues in heterogeneous catalysis.
