Objective

To synthesize gas-phase nanoclusters deposited on surfaces for the production of novel catalysts

Tasks
  • production of a series of mass selected (a few atoms to 5 nm), bimetallic clusters, mixing 3d (Ni, Co, Cu), noble (Au, Ag, Pd, Pt) and post-transition (Zn, Ga, In, Sn, Bi) metals
Task 1.1. TC production
  • deposition of the clusters onto oxide supports for thermo-catalysts (TCs)
Task 1.2. EC production
  • deposition of the clusters onto conducting glassy carbon and FTO electrodes for electro-catalysts (ECs)
Deliverables & Milestone(s)
  • D1.1.1st report on successful deposition of bimetallic clusters on electrodes (CMEs) for ECs (KUL) M12
  • D1.2. 1st report on successful deposition of bimetallic clusters on SiO2 and micro reactors for TCs (KUL-DTU) M16
  • D1.3. 1st report on upscaling the production of clusters (TCL) M18
  • m1.1. Upscaled cluster deposition on powders and electrodes for TCs and ECs (TCL-KUL-DTU) M18
