  1. 1. Electrooxidation of glycerol and methanol on gold

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Mikael Valter; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; van der Waals; electrochemistry; methanol; gold; glycerol; DFT;

    Abstract : Burning of fossil fuels leads to excess CO2 in the atmosphere, causing global warming, threatening civilisation and ecosystems worldwide. As a step in making the society fossil-independent, we need to replace oil, coal, and gas in the transportation sector with fuels originating from sustainable energy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development of Methanol-Reforming Catalysts for Fuel Cell Vehicles

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kemiteknik

    Author : Johan Agrell; KTH.; [2003]
    Keywords : PEM fuel cells; hydrogen; methanol; reforming; oxidation; reaction pathways; carbon monoxide;

    Abstract : Vehicles powered by proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuelcells are approaching commercialisation. Being inherently cleanand efficient sources of power, fuel cells constitute asustainable alternative to internal combustion engines to meetfuture low-emission legislation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Development of a methanol reformer for fuel cell vehicles

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kemiteknik

    Author : Bård Lindström; KTH.; [2003]
    Keywords : methanol; fuel cell vehicles; reforming; catalysis; partial oxidation; steam reforming; combined reforming;

    Abstract : Vehicles powered by fuel cells are from an environmentalaspect superior to the traditional automobile using internalcombustion of gasoline. Power systems which are based upon fuelcell technology require hydrogen for operation. The ideal fuelcell vehicle would operate on pure hydrogen stored on-board. READ MORE

  4. 4. Lean NOx reduction with methanol over supported silver catalysts

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kemiteknik

    Author : Marika Männikkö; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; lean NOx reduction; SCR; silver species; silver alumina; methanol; hydrogen; silver ZSM-5;

    Abstract : The oxygen rich and relatively cold exhaust gases from fuel-efficient combustion engines bring challenges for the reductive aftertreatment of NOx. In this context selective catalytic reduction over silver/alumina has shown positive results, especially with oxygenated reducing agents. READ MORE

  5. 5. A quantum-chemical study to the magnetic characteristics of methanol and its applications in astronomy

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Boy Lankhaar; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; methanol; maser polarization; star formation; magnetic fields; masers;

    Abstract : Magnetic fields play an important role during star formation. Direct magnetic field strength observations have proven specifically challenging in the dynamic protostellar phase. READ MORE
