Support type:Scholarships in Brazil - Post-Doctorate
Effective date (Start): May 01, 2017
Effective date (End): September 30, 2018
Field of knowledge:Physical Sciences and Mathematics - Chemistry - Physical-Chemistry
Principal researcher:Marcelo Linardi
Grantee:Thenner Silva Rodrigues
Home Institution: Instituto de Pesquisas Energéticas e Nucleares (IPEN). Secretaria de Desenvolvimento Econômico (São Paulo - Estado). São Paulo , SP, Brazil
Associated research grant:14/09087-4 - Studies on the use of bioethanol in proton exchange membrane and solid oxide fuel cells, AP.TEM


The research plan is divided in three main aprts. The first one consists on the development of synthesis methods of heterogeneous catalysts supported in mixed oxides. In the second part, a detailed characterization will be carried out involving several techniques such as BET, XRD, quimissorption, electron microscopy, etc. The final part is testing activity and selectivity of catalysts for hydrogen production from the steam reforming of ethanol.
