Knowledge-based development of a nitrate-free synthesis route for Cu/ZnO methanol synthesis catalystsviaformate precursors

Author affiliations

Abstract

High-performance Cu/ZnO/(Al2O3) methanol synthesis catalysts are conventionally prepared by co-precipitation from nitrate solutions and subsequent thermal treatment. A new synthesis route is presented, which is based on similar preparation steps and leads to active catalysts, but avoids nitrate contaminated waste water.
