Real-time monitoring of catalytic surfaces using a mass/heat flow sensor: Hydrogenation of ethylene on platinum and palladium
Smith AL., Shirazi HM., Smith FC.
A quartz crystal microbalance/heat conduction calorimeter has been used to monitor simultaneously the heat of reaction and the change in surface mass when H2 and C2H4 in a N2 carrier react on palladium and on platinum surfaces at temperatures of 25-50°C. The measured turnover rate of the H2 + C2H4 reaction on platinum at 50°C is consistent with literature values. © 2005 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.
