Catalysts and Reaction Processes

Advanced Materials Laboratory Vesicles of concentric porous silica shells formed by evaporation-induced self-assembly in an aerosol.

Sandia National Laboratories offers both extensive catalysis expertise as well as reactor and chemical processing know-how. In catalysis, Sandia has over 20 years of experience in synthesis, characterization, testing, and modeling of catalyst materials. We have unique, industrial-size reactor test beds, in-situ diagnostics for hydrodynamic studies, and extensive experience in applying transport codes to chemical reactors. The broad experience represented in catalysis, materials, and reactor hydrodynamics makes Sandia well-equipped to address practical catalytic problems in industry as well as fundamental scientific questions in catalysis and reaction engineering. For our many governmental and industrial customers, our catalysis researchers have addressed a variety of key issues, including:
