Abstract:In 2011 Dr. Reyes Mallada visited the University of Twente as a researcher at the research groups Catalytic Processes and Materials (CPM) and Mesoscale Chemical Systems (MCS). She studied zeolites in microsystems and their catalytic performance. This bachelor assignment continues on the work done by Dr. Reyes Mallada. The results of her experiments are used as a starting point for the settings. The assignment will start with a literature study, followed by studying the activity performance of a mordenite supported ruthenium catalyst in bromated reduction in a packed bed reactor, by using a portable UV-Vis spectrophotometer. Furthermore the residence time distribution in a packed bed of powdered ruthenium/mordenite catalyst and its subsequent influence on catalyst activity will be investigated. At last the important parameter values to establish the correlation or guidelines for studying ruthenium/mordenite coatings in pillared microreactor channels have to be identified and obtained.
