Preparation and Characterization of Nanofibrous Catalysts for Environmental Applications

By Karel Soukup


The aim of the study was focused on detailed description of the influence of the preparation of palladium and platinum catalysts supported on polymeric nanofibers based on poly(2,6-dimethyl-1,4-phenylene) oxide on their catalytic performance. The catalytic activity of the prepared electrospun catalysts was investigated by means of model reaction based on total oxidation of methanol. Nanofibrous catalyst supports were prepared by electrospinning technique, which represents currently the most using method to produce polymeric nanofibrous mats. This technique is based on the polymeric fiber elongation under the influence of the electrostatic field between two opposite charged electrodes (capillary electrode and the grounded plate)
