The main objectives of the project are (i) to understand by a catalysis by design approach the requirements for inorganic catalyst systems to speed up elementary reaction
steps and valorise biomass with a focus on conversion of cellulose into fuels and chemicals; (ii) using these nanoscale insights to develop novel catalysts based on abundant elements for the conversion of biomass and (iii) to develop three proof of concept studies at laboratory scale to convert cellulose/sugar feedstocks into fuels and chemicals - specific attention will be paid to catalyst robustness.
The reaction rate laws derived from the elementary reaction
steps in Scheme 1 a and b, respectively, are shown as follows (14):
The second major reason is that solid state reaction is generally not an elementary reaction
, in which the reaction model varies with temperature, and the reaction might involve several steps with different activation energies.
In particular, the Arrhenius pre-expo-nential for this elementary reaction
differs slightly from that published in an our previous work  due to the modification introduced in its evaluation, as illustrated in the Computational Details section.
The collision of molecules causes chemical reactions, which comprise an elementary reaction
for specified reactant and product molecules, they say, and a balanced stoichiometric reaction for an elementary reaction
yields the number of each type of molecule according to the conservation of atoms, mass, and charge.
The kinetic equations of each elementary reaction
can be written as:
t] are activation energies of elementary reaction
of initiation, propagation, and termination, consequently.

Our proposed elementary reactions
mechanism for the NO-CO system on Pt and Ir catalysts mainly consists of molecular NO adsorption, dissociation of adsorbed NO to form adsorbed N and O species, formation of [N.
Initially, Zewail and his team studied such elementary reactions
as the dissociation of iodocyanide (ICN) into iodine (1) and cyanide (CN) and the interaction between hydrogen (H) and carbon dioxide ([CO.

The dynamics of uni- and bi-molecular elementary reactions
are described, based on quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics, or, as an approximation, classical mechanics.
