bifunctional catalyst

bifunctional catalyst

[¦bī¦fəŋk·shən·əl ′kad·ə‚list]
(chemistry)
A catalytic substance that possesses two catalytic sites and thus is capable of catalyzing two different types of reactions. Also known as dual-function catalyst.

The catalytic performance of the bifunctional catalyst was investigated by hydrotreating Jatropha curcas seed oil in a continuous flow tubular reactor of 9 mm internal diameter and 300 mm in length vertically within the tubular programmable temperature.
On the other side, 2-ethylhexanol is industrially produced through three consecutive reaction processes such as, propylene hydroformylation to n-butyraldehyde, n-butyraldehyde self-condensation, and typical aldol condensation reaction, which can be catalyzed by an acid, a base, or an acid-base bifunctional catalyst, to give 2-ethyl-2-hexenal, and a hydrogenation, catalyzed by the supported Cu or Ni catalysts, of this last compound to give 2-ethylhexanol [21].

[31] evaluated the performance of Ni/CaO-[Al.sub.2][O.sub.3] as a bifunctional catalyst in capturing and releasing C[O.sub.2], which they explained as a function of the decomposition of CaC[O.sub.3] into CaO at 800 [degrees]C and the carbonation of CaO into CaC[O.sub.3] at 650 [degrees]C.
In general, three air electrode configurations have been used for the metal-air battery [4]: (a) a two-electrode configuration, one each for the OER and ORR; (b) a single electrode with a catalyst layer, which is a bifunctional catalyst participating in both the OER and ORR; and (c) a single electrode with two catalyst layers, one each for the OER and ORR.
This is a unique bifunctional catalyst system different from anything known and offers an opportunity to invent a completely new catalytic system for this reaction.
