SP6 - Toolkit for material and reactor design

The design and building of a number of different reactors for testing of OCM catalysts, testing of ethylene oligomerization catalysts and the measuring of reaction kinetics, including a novel NMR reactor, were achieved, see Figure 8 to Figure 11.

The formation of microkinetic models to aid the other technical SP’s was included. Selection of standard catalysts for other SP’s, as well as their large scale preparation and forming by innovative coating methods was incorporated into this area of the project. It also includes the realisation of two microstructured laboratory prototype reactors allowing the combination of the exothermic OCM and endothermic dry reforming reactions at a quasi auto-thermal regime with staged oxygen dosing. Investigations in to separation materials were also involved.
