Abstract
CO2 Catalysis has been studied with Planar Laser Induced Fluorescence (PLIF) in combination with a mass spectrometer for a small, 23 cubic centimeters, cube shaped flow reactor. Both catalysis processes with one and with two catalysts inside the reactor have been carried out and analysed. Some results have been visualised by images showing concentration, given by the PLIF signal, of CO2 inside the reactor in two dimensions. This has the advantage of having two dimensional spatial resolution compared to only using the mass spectrometer. The experiments were also performed at almost ambient pressure (100 mbar).
Popular Abstract (Swedish)
Med hjälp av laserljus i en kubisk kammare har halten CO2 runt en katalysator studerats. Denna typen av studier är viktiga för att kunna förbättra och effektivisera katalysatorer vilket är väldigt viktigt inom både industri och för miljömål. Använder man laser på det här sättet kan man se hur olika parametrar, så som flöde eller tryck, påverkar effektiviteten av katalysatorn. Andra metoder har inte den möjligheten utan istället studerar de antingen ytan eller enbart gasen efter att den har lämnat kammaren vilket gör att man förlorar information om hur gasen beter sig i kammaren.
