We have contributed to the groundbreaking international research on zeolite catalysis

The team of co-authors from five different countries, has uncovered a revolutionary new design concept for catalysts used in the industrially crucial Methanol-to-Hydrocarbon process, enabling the production of high-demand chemical commodities from source-abundant methanol. A remarkable 14-fold increase in the catalyst’s lifetime was achieved by employing liquid gallium as a promoter, which molecular-level effects on […]
