Argonne researchers make vanadium into a useful low-cost catalyst for hydrogenation

Argonne researchers make vanadium into a useful low-cost catalyst for hydrogenation 28 May 2017 Researchers at the US Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory have developed an unusually active form of vanadium for hydrogenation reactions. Vanadium is an inexpensive common metal that could replace some of the precious metals currently found in catalysts used in these reactions, frequently used in processing of fuels (petro- and drop-in bio-) and petrochemicals. The vanadium catalyst exhibits unprecedented reactivity in liquid- and gas- phase alkene/alkyne hydrogenation. Catalyst poisoning experiments revealed that 100% of the V sites are active for hydrogenation. A paper on their work is published in the RSC journal Chemical Communications . Earth-abundant and inexpensive late first-row transition metals such as Fe, Co, Ni and Cu have been extensively researched ...
