Classification of Catalysts
Catalysts are used considering the functions required by the application.
Catalysts for hydrodesulfurization/denitrification (Co, Mo, Ni), catalytic reforming (Pt, Re, Ir, Ge), FCC (zeolite), etc.
Catalysts for hydrogenation (Pd/Ag), dehydrogenation (Pt, Pd, Ni, Cu, Cr, Fe), oxidation (V, Ti, Mo, Co), isomerization (Pt-zeolite), alkylation (zeolite), hydration, asymmetric synthesis (DINAP, L-isomer), etc.
Polymerization catalysts (TiCl3-AiR3, metallocene, TiCl3-MgCL2)
Catalysts for Environmental Preservation
Automobile exhaust gas
HC adsorption catalyst (zeolite), NOx occlusion reduction-type catalysts (Pt, Rh, Pd), diesel exhaust gas catalyst (zeolite)
Other environmental preservation catalysts
Catalysts for flue gas denitrification/DXN (Ti, V), catalytic combustion deodorizing catalysts (Pt, Pd), catalysts for preservation of living environment (Ti, Pt, Pd), fuel cell catalysts (Pt, Ru), etc.
