Abstract:

This report results from a contract tasking American University of Sharjah as follows To achieve the goals of the project, three major tasks will be performed 1. The development of nanoclusters embedded in zeolites as potential photocatalysts. 2. Identify conditions for optimum synthesis of nano-sized tungsten oxide WO3 based materials. We will investigate synthetic sol-gel strategies for incorporating mixed metal into the WO3 framework. 3. Surface analysis and catalytic studies.
