Catalysts for Destruction of Air Pollutants

U.S. industries and the U.S. Department of Energy must manage a variety of off-gas wastes consisting of complex volatile organic compounds. This research will investigate a new class of mesoporous uranium oxide and mesoporous sol-gel catalysts doped with uranium oxides for destruction of a range of volatile organic contaminants. including alkanes, aromatics, and chlorinated organic compounds. This research will contribute to a fundamental understanding of the mechanism and rate-limiting processes that control the reactivity and selectivity between uranium-based catalysts and the organic substrates (or pollutants).
