  1. 11. Reactions of aqueous radiolysis products with oxide surfaces : An experimental and DFT study

    Author : Cláudio Miguel Lousada Patrício; Mats Jonsson; Jean-Philippe Renault; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; hydrogen peroxide; hydrogen production; metal; oxides; lanthanide; catalysis; density functional theory; surface; reactions; chemistry; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi; SRA - Production; SRA - Produktion;

    Abstract : The reactions between aqueous radiolysis products and oxide surfaces are important in nuclear technology in many ways. In solid-liquid systems, they affect (and at the same time are dependent on) both the solution chemistry and the stability of materials under the influence of ionizing radiation. READ MORE

  2. 12. Quantum photoelectrochemistry : Theoretical studies of organic adsorbates on metal oxides surfaces

  4. 14. First principles studies of CO2 activation and reduction over indium oxide and copper surfaces

    Author : Alvaro Posada Borbon; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : CO2 reduction; indium oxide; methanol conversion; copper surface; Heterogeneous catalysis; Density Functional Theory;

    Abstract : Catalytic recycling of carbon dioxide (CO2) to added-value chemicals, such as methanol (CH3OH), have been proposed as a possible path for sustainable production of fuel and chemicals, in addition to providing a route to mitigate anthropogenic carbon emissions. Several catalytic systems are known to be active for conversion of CO2 to methanol, Cu/ZnO/Al2O3 being the main industrial catalyst for the process. READ MORE

  5. 15. Modification of Oxide Surfaces with Functional Organic Molecules, Nanoparticles, and Hetero-Oxide Layers

    Author : Shilpi Chaudhary; Synkrotronljusfysik; []

    Abstract : The research work described in this thesis is concerned with the modification of oxide surfaces, as reflected by its title. The surfaces and their modification have been studied using a range of experimental surface characterization tools, in particular x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), fluorescence microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and scanning tunneling microscopy.
