This laboratory has the necessary equipment for the production of SWNTs.We count with vertical and horizontal bed reactors. A great advantage of fluidized bed reactors is that they permit continuous addition and removal of solid particles from the reactor, without stopping the operation.
Temperature programmed techniques (TPR and TPO) are performed to determine coke deposits and reducible species on the catalysts as well as SWNT yield in the reaction.

Tacking hydrophobic organosilyl groups onto the surface of a common zeolite helps overcome the catalyst’s inability to function effectively when liquid water is the reaction medium, chemical engineers have found. The researchers believe their water-repelling zeolite could be a hit for high-pressure water/oil emulsion processing of biomass into fuels and chemicals. The protecting group strategy could also benefit other types of catalysts that are inhibited by water, they say.
