Conversion of Syngas into Higher Alcohols over Supported MoS2
Supported and unsupported potassium carbonate promoted molybdenum sulfide catalyss will be used in CO hydrogenation reactions for the purpose of understanding effects of structural properties on alcohol selectivity and productivity. Catalyst structure will be characterized probed by TEM, XRD, and a variety of spectroscopic techniqes such as Raman FTIR, UV-vis, X-ray Photoelectron and X-ray Absorption Spectroscopies. Alcohol and olefin co-feed experiments will be employed to elucidate reaction pathways.
