Catalyst Deactivation 1994 used to be a diffusion of previous, hugely profitable symposia. the target of the symposium used to be to advertise a systematic process of the phenomenon of catalyst deactivation in order to give a contribution to the advance of catalysts that are much less topic to structural modifications and extra immune to poisons and coke formation. those elements are handled in 12 plenary lectures, forty eight oral shows and 35 poster papers, which have been seriously chosen from a powerful reaction from a few 30 international locations. either basic and utilized facets have been lined. The deactivation of catalysts in vital commercial approaches like fluid mattress catalytic cracking hydrotreatment, hydrodesulphurisation, catalytic reforming, hydrodenitrogenation, steam reforming, hydrodemetallisation, hydrocracking, Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, propane dehydrogenation, phthalic anhydride synthesis got huge cognizance. Mechanisms of poisoning, sintering and coking have been extra investigated and modelled and new experimental recommendations for the characterisation and the quantification of deactivation have been additionally brought.
