• Biomass derived activated carbon catalysts for the one-step dimethyl ether synthesis from syngas 

      Palomo, José; Rodríguez-Cano, Miguel A.; Rodriguez-Mirasol, Jose; Cordero, Tomás (2019-11-05)
      In this work we study the behaviour of a carbon-based catalyst for this one-step synthesis process. Two kinds of activated carbons, prepared by chemical (with H3PO4) and physical (by CO2 partial gasification) activation ...
    • Electrospinning of alcell lignin for the preparation of ORR electrocatalysts 

      Ruiz-Rosas, Ramiro; Cordero, Tomás; Rodriguez-Mirasol, Jose; Rosas, Juana María; García-Mateos, Francisco José (2019-10-28)
      Carbon fibers are one of the components of the electrode assemblies used in fuel cells. They are usually prepared from polyacrylonitrile, a non-renewable synthetic polymer. Lignin is a highly abundant biopolymer that is ...
    • In situ characterization of porous VPO catalysts with fibrous structure: Identifying the redox behavior and the stability of active sites 

      Berenguer-Betrian, Raul; Fornells, Jaime; Rodriguez-Mirasol, José; Cordero, Tomás; Ford, Michael; [et al.] (2016-09-09)
      Two VPO materials with fibrillar morphology have been prepared by the aid of electrospinning technique. One is a VPO carbon-supported material (VCF200) with fibrous morphology and very high surface area that is stable under ...
    • Methanol dehydration on carbon-based acid catalysts 

      Valero-Romero, María José; Calvo-Muñoz, Elisa Mª; Ruiz-Rosas, Ramiro; Rodríguez-Mirasol, José; Cordero, Tomás (XXXIV Reunión Bienal de la Real Sociedad Española de Química, 2013-09-16)
      Methanol dehydration to produce dimethyl ether (DME) is an interesting process for the chemical industry since DME is an important intermediate and a promising clean alternative fuel for diesel engines. Pure or modified ...
