Luxfer MEL Technologies offer a range of Zirconium Oxides / Hydroxides in their undoped and doped forms, which can modify the nature of catalyst supports in respect of surface area stability, porosity, surface acidity / basicity and crystallinity. These are used in a wide range of applications from Petrochemicals, Biomass Converion, Biofuels to Refining applications such as Isomerisation, Alkylation, Reforming, Oxidation, Amination, and, Hydrogenation.
In addition, we have a range of Zirconium based solutions that can be used as binders, adhesion promoters and sources of high purity Zirconia for catalysis.
The product of choice will be dependent upon the catalytic properties required (acid, base etc), as well as the form that the catalyst will be in. We have the technology to fine tune and control the particle size to suit the specific application.
