About this Research Topic
Over the past decades, the booming of the economy and explosive growth of the population cause some serious issues such as global warming, environmental pollution, and energy crisis. The contaminants in the air remarkably damage people’s health. To cope with the severe harmful atmospheric contaminations, catalytic remediation is very promising to remove the atmospheric pollutants thoroughly as the product is usually less toxic or nontoxic. The efficient catalytic elimination of atmospheric pollutants usually requires novel catalysts equipped with high activity and/or selectivity, robust stability and good resistance towards catalysis poisoners.
This Research Topic aims to highlight and collect the latest progress regarding novel catalysts for pollutants elimination including volatile organic compounds (VOCs) combustion, selective catalytic reduction of NOx with ammonia (NH3-SCR), photo-catalytic removal of VOCs and NOx. The manuscripts discussing the mechanisms of catalytic remediation via in-situ and/or operando techniques are particularly welcome. Topics to be discussed can include, but are not limited to, the following:
• H2 and/or Hydrocarbon-SCR of NOx
• NH3-SCR of NOx by using less V or non-V based metal oxide catalysts
• Novel zeolite-based NH3-SCR catalysts for NOx reduction
• VOCs combustion by using novel catalysts
• Removal of VOCs and NOx by using photo-catalysts
• Greenhouse gas CO2 conversion
• Theoretical calculations to elucidate elimination mechanisms of atmospheric pollutants
