  • US Patent:
    6506703, Jan 14, 2003
  • Filed:
    Jan 24, 2000
  • Appl. No.:
    09/341717
  • Inventors:
    Kenneth Ray Clem - Humble TX
    Thomas Henry Vanderspurt - Stockton NJ
    Shun Chong Fung - Bridgewater NJ
  • Assignee:
    Exxon Mobil Chemical Patents Inc. - Houston TX
  • International Classification:
    B01J 2962
  • US Classification:
    502 66, 502 64, 502 74, 502 79
  • Abstract:
    An ion exchange method is provided for loading and uniformly distributing noble metals into a catalyst substrate comprising a zeolite to make a monofunctional, non-acidic reforming catalyst. The catalyst substrate is contacted with an aqueous loading solution comprising noble metal cations and non-noble metal cations. The loading solution is formulated such that the equivalents of non-noble metal cations remaining in the catalyst not ionically bonded to the zeolite when loading is complete is 1. 2 to 6. 0 times the equivalents of non-noble metal cations displaced from the zeolite when the noble metal cations ion exchange into the zeolite, and simultaneously the endpoint pH of the loading solution is between 10. 0 and 11. 5. The required 1. 2 to 6. 0 ratio is achieved when the ratio of moles of non-noble metal cations added to the loading solution to moles of noble metal added to the loading solution is between 1 and 10.

  • International Classification:
    C01B003/48
    H01M008/10
    B01D053/62
  • US Classification:
    481277, 422177, 422190, 422196, 423246, 429 19
  • Abstract:
    A fuel processing system (FPS) () is provided for a fuel cell power plant () having a fuel cell stack assembly (CSA) (). A water gas shift (WGS) reaction section () of the FPS () reduces the concentration of carbon monoxide (CO) in the supplied hydrocarbon reformate, and a preferred oxidation (PROX) section () further reduces the CO concentration to an acceptable level. The WGS section () includes a reactor () with a high activity catalyst for reducing the reformate Co concentration to a relatively low level, e. g. , 2,000 ppmv or less, thereby relatively reducing the structural volume of the FPS (). The high activity catalyst is active at temperatures as low as 250° C. , and may be a noble-metal-on-ceria catalyst of Pt and Re on a nanocrystaline, cerium oxide-based support. Then only a low temperature PROX reactor () is required for preferential oxidation in the FPS ().

  • Assignee:
    UTC Fuel Cells, LLC - South Windsor CT
  • International Classification:
    C01F 17/00
  • US Classification:
    423263, 502302, 502303, 502304
  • Abstract:
    A homogeneous ceria-based mixed-metal oxide, useful as a catalyst support, a co-catalyst and/or a getter has a relatively large surface area per weight, typically exceeding 150 m/g, a structure of nanocrystallites having diameters of less than 4 nm, and including pores larger than the nanocrystallites and having diameters in the range of 4 to about 9 nm. The ratio of pore volumes, V, to skeletal structure volumes, V, is typically less than about 2. 5, and the surface area per unit volume of the oxide material is greater than 320 m/cm, for low internal mass transfer resistance and large effective surface area for reaction activity. The mixed metal oxide is ceria-based, includes Zr and or Hf, and is made by a novel co-precipitation process. A highly dispersed catalyst metal, typically a noble metal such as Pt, may be loaded on to the mixed metal oxide support from a catalyst metal-containing solution following a selected acid surface treatment of the oxide support. Appropriate ratioing of the Ce and other metal constituents of the oxide support contribute to it retaining in a cubic phase and enhancing catalytic performance.

  • Assignee:
    Carrier Corporation - Syracuse NY
  • International Classification:
    A61L 9/00
  • US Classification:
    422 4, 2041582, 313112, 313573, 422 24, 4221863
  • Abstract:
    A tungsten oxide/titanium dioxide photocatalyst coating oxidizes contaminants in the air that adsorb onto the coating into water, carbon dioxide, and other substances. The tungsten oxide forms a monolayer on the titanium dioxide. When photons of the ultraviolet light are absorbed by the tungsten oxide/titanium dioxide photocatalyst coating, an electron is promoted from the valence band to the conduction band, producing a hole in the valence band. The holes in the valence band react with water applied on the tungsten oxide/titanium dioxide photocatalyst coating, forming reactive hydroxyl radicals. When a contaminant in the air is adsorbed onto the tungsten oxide/titanium dioxide photocatalyst, the hydroxyl radical attacks the contaminant, abstracting a hydrogen atom from the contaminant. The hydroxyl radical oxidizes the contaminant, producing water, carbon dioxide, and other substances. The tungsten oxide/titanium dioxide photocatalytic coating has low sensitivity to humidity variations.

  • US Classification:
    420463, 148430, 148442, 96 4, 502 4
  • Abstract:
    A durable Pd-based alloy is used for a H-selective membrane in a hydrogen generator, as in the fuel processor of a fuel cell plant. The Pd-based alloy includes Cu as a binary element, and further includes “X”, where “X” comprises at least one metal from group “M” that is BCC and acts to stabilize the β BCC phase for stability during operating temperatures. The metal from group “M” is selected from the group consisting of Fe, Cr, Nb, Ta, V, Mo, and W, with Nb and Ta being most preferred. “X” may further comprise at least one metal from a group “N” that is non-BCC, preferably FCC, that enhances other properties of the membrane, such as ductility. The metal from group “N” is selected from the group consisting of Ag, Au, Re, Ru, Rh, Y, Ce, Ni, Ir, Pt, Co, La and In. The at. % of Pd in the binary Pd—Cu alloy ranges from about 35 at. % to about 55 at.
