YBa2Cu3O7 superconductor as a mild, deep oxidation catalyst
- 26 Downloads
Several Y-Ba-Cu-O compositions including the superconducting YBa2Cu3O7 are scanned for their oxygen uptake using low temperature oxygen chemisorption (LTOC) technique as the principal probe at 195 K. BET surface area and pore size distribution were also determined. The results indicate their potential for use as mild, deep oxidation catalysts even under ambient and sub-ambient conditions.
