Research has been carried out in two areas heterogeneous catalysis and materials for energy storage. In the first project, standard batches of Pt SiO2 catalysts were prepared and characterized utilizing a variety of techniques, e.g., x-ray diffraction, isotopic exchange between deuterium and cyclopentane, etc. The purpose of these studies is to elucidate information on the nature of the catalyst crystallites, the effect of the support upon the catalyst behavior, the effect of metallic particle size on catalytic characteristics and the effect of the method of catalyst preparation upon catalytic activity. The results of the final sets of measurements are presented.
