Classification of Catalysts

Catalysts are used considering the functions required by the application.

Industrial Catalysts

1) Petroleum refining
Catalysts for hydrodesulfurization/denitrification (Co, Mo, Ni), catalytic reforming (Pt, Re, Ir, Ge), FCC (zeolite), etc.
2) Petrochemicals
Catalysts for hydrogenation (Pd/Ag), dehydrogenation (Pt, Pd, Ni, Cu, Cr, Fe), oxidation (V, Ti, Mo, Co), isomerization (Pt-zeolite), alkylation (zeolite), hydration, asymmetric synthesis (DINAP, L-isomer), etc.
3) Polymer synthesis
Polymerization catalysts (TiCl3-AiR3, metallocene, TiCl3-MgCL2)

Catalysts for Environmental Preservation

1) Automobile exhaust gas
HC adsorption catalyst (zeolite), NOx occlusion reduction-type catalysts (Pt, Rh, Pd), diesel exhaust gas catalyst (zeolite)
2) Other environmental preservation catalysts
Catalysts for flue gas denitrification/DXN (Ti, V), catalytic combustion deodorizing catalysts (Pt, Pd), catalysts for preservation of living environment (Ti, Pt, Pd), fuel cell catalysts (Pt, Ru), etc.
