Intermetallic alloys of the general type Zr50MxN50‐x, where 0 ≦x≧ 50, were prepared by argon arc melting of the constituent elements. M and N are combinations of cobalt, nickel, copper and ruthenium. The alloys were powdered by hydrogen decrepitation, which yielded hydrided species of the general composition Zr50MxN50‐′H150‐x′ in which form they were used as catalysts.
The reactions were carried out in a semi‐micro‐tubular flow reactor at 1 barg, 350°C and a H2/CO feed ratio of 3. It was observed tha…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
