Generation and testing of catalytic films on aluminium supports produced by plasma electrolytic oxidation (PEO)

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


Metastable alumina phases were obtained by thermal oxidation of FeCrAlloy rods1 and by using plasma electrolytic oxidation method (PEO) of aluminium strips. The structured catalysts were characterised and then metal-loaded. The activity and toluene selectivity in the dehydrogenation of methyl cyclohexane was determined using a fixed bed reactor. A comparison with pelleted powder catalysts allowed evaluation of reaction pathways in this highly endothermic process.
