Korleis verkar katalysotoren i bilen din?

26.01.2018 Den reduserer utslepp av forureinande gassar, og har forbetra luftkvalitet i byar over heile verda i fleire tiår. Men korleis verkar ein bilkatalysator? Ein bilkatalysator er eit materiale som skal redusere utslepp av miljøskadelege stoff frå motoren så mykje som mogleg.

Katalyse: jokeren i kjemiske industriprosesser

29.10.2015 Katalysatorer er uunnværlige i de aller fleste kjemiske industriprosesser. Ved hjelp av inngående kjennskap til kjemi på molekylnivå, skal et nytt senter tilknyttet NTNU gjøre katalysatorene raskere, bedre og mer effektive. Katalyse: jokeren i kjemiske industriprosesser (Fakultet for naturvitenskap og teknologi blogg)
