First-principles kinetic Monte Carlo (1p-kMC) simulations for CO oxidation on two RuO 2 facets, RuO 2(110) and RuO 2(111), were coupled to the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations package MFIX, and reactor-scale simulations were then performed. 1p-kMC coupled with CFD has recently been shown as a feasible method for translating molecular scale mechanistic knowledge to the reactor scale, enabling comparisons to in situ and online experimental measurements. Only a few studies with such coupling have been published. This work incorporates multiple catalytic surface facets into the scale-coupled simulation, and three possibilities were investigated: the two possibilities of each facet individuallymore »
As research activities continue, our understanding of biomass pyrolysis has been significantly elevated and we sought to arrange this Virtual Special Issue (VSI) in ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering to report recent progress on computational and experimental studies of biomass pyrolysis. Beyond highlighting the five national laboratories' advancements, prestigious researchers in the field of biomass pyrolysis have been invited to report their most recent activities.
DOE PAGES offers free public access to the best available full-text version of DOE-affiliated accepted manuscripts or articles after an administrative interval of 12 months. The portal and search engine employ a hybrid model of both centralized and distributed content, with PAGES maintaining a permanent archive of all full text and metadata.
