New acid zeolites obtained from silicogermanates

Zeolites are microporous crystalline aluminosilicates that exist in the natural state and can also be synthesised for a wide range of applications, from the biomedical industry to the production of renewable energy. (...) This work was carried out entirely at IFPEN as part of a doctoral thesis and has resulted in a new stable zeolite...

Molecular modelling: a key tool for current and future heterogeneous catalysis

Chemical theory at quantum level (density functional theory or DFT) is an essential tool in rationalising the reaction mechanisms involved in the preparation of catalysts, as well as in their use, thanks to the optimisation of their activity [1,2]. IFPEN has carried out a number of projects aiming to shed light on these catalysts, which are of particular interest to industrial processes...
