Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


According to kinetic studies on the reduction of commercial Co-Mo/Al2O3 and model catalysts in H2 at 523-773 K, the kinetic curves for the reduction process have been determined. The reduction rate is shown to be higher for the commercial catalyst. Activation energies Eact for the reduction of several forms of Mo and Co in Co-Mo/Al2O3 catalysts are presented.
