Reactor setup 2
Fixed bed reactor capable of operation at medium pressure (up to 10 bar). It is used for CO2 hydrogenation to methanol. Effluent quantification is performed with a Perkin Elmer GC (Autosystem XL) equipped with TCD and FID detectors.

Operando DRIFTS
FTIR (Thermo Nicolet 6700) with DTGS and MCT detectors equipped with a Smart Collector accesory with Dual environmental chamber for DRIFTS analyses under reaction conditions.
The effluent gases are quantified with a OMNIstar mass spectrometer.

A homemade chemisorption apparatus. It is used for measuring adsorption isotherms.

Fume hood
For the safe preparation of catalysts.

We have two ovens for thermal treatment of our materials: one enables the calcination in static air at temperatures up to 1100°C and the other is a tubular furnace which permits the control of the type of gas and flow as well as the temperature (up to 1400°C).
