Final Report - NANOCAT (Tailored nanosized metal catalysts for improving activity and selectivity via engineering of their structure and local environment)

Project ID: 506621
Funded under: FP6-NMP

Abstract

This is the final report of the NANOCAT project, which aimed to create fundamental knowledge from the synthesis of nanosized metal catalysts supported on inorganic and organic matrices as well as from the testing of these catalysts in industrially important reactions for producing fine and specialty chemicals. The most important aim was to create the link between the catalyst properties and its performance in hydrogenation / oxidation, and isomerisation reactions.

The report provides summarised information regarding the background of the project, its objectives and the contractors that were involved. It goes on to describe in detail the various work packages, their objectives and the work that was performed. Brief remarks regarding the dissemination of knowledge complete the report.
