Nanocatalysts for Hydrodesulfurization Reactions

About this Research Topic

Fuels with high sulfur content continue to be an environmental problem in many countries. More stringent environmental regulations need more effective catalysts for the elimination of Sulfur from diesel and gasoline by hydroprocessing of their heavy crude. Nanocatalysts possess advantages as enhanced mixing, specific surface area, easy separation, increased activity, and selectivity. This Research Topic reveals the impact of the nanocatalysts' performance and serves as guidance for the design of novel Hydrodesulfurization (HDS) catalysts.

In this Research Topic, we present recent research related to the synthesis, characterization, and performance of nanocatalysts for hydrodesulfurization (HDS) reactions. As is well known, a common approach to increase the number of active sites on catalysts is to decrease their particle size to nanostructured materials. For this reason, increasing research has been focused on nanomaterials to be used as HDS catalysts. The present chapters analyze the state of the art of HDS Nanocatalysts.

This Research Topic intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in nanocatalysts for HDS reactions covering aspects of synthesis methods and physicochemical characterization with a particular interest in catalysis activity and selectivity. We invite researchers to submit Original Research, Reviews and Mini-Reviews exploring, but not limited to, the following research areas:
• Synthesis methods for HDS catalysts
• Physico-chemical characterization of HDS catalysts
• Kinetics of HDS reactions
• Catalytic activity of HDS reactions
• Selectivity of HDS catalysts


Keywords: Hydrodesulfurization, Hydrodesulfurization catalysts, HDS, catalyst, catalyst kinetics, catalyst selectivity


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
