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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Cláudio Miguel Lousada Patrício; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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. 2. Study of the Apparent Kinetics of Biomass Gasification Using High-Temperature Steam

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology
