Alumina-supported palladium and palladium/copper catalysts: Characterization and use for selective hydrogenation of 1,3-butadiene
Butadiene is a normal deleterious contaminant that must be removed from C$\sb4$-olefin streams before being used in several industrial applications. While this impurity is substantially eliminated by selective catalytic ...
Renormalization group theory for percolation and application to transport properties of random media
A renormalization group method in real space is applied to the study of transport properties of random media. In particular, the method is applied to the study of the electrical properties of disordered materials and the ...
Biodegradable polymer scaffold fabrication and the creation of tissue-engineered bone
It is estimated that over one million surgeries to restore lost bone function are performed each year in the U.S. Although existing therapies generally result in adequate restoration of mechanical or aesthetic function, ...
Statistical mechanics and kinetics of hydrogen vacancy interaction of metals
Several important aspects of hydrogen vacancy interaction are discussed with a physical model as well as numerical methods for the model presented. A statistical mechanical model was first introduced to calculate the ...
