Zinc hydroxyapatite catalyst for decomposition of 2-propanol

Low, Hou Ran; Avdeev, Maxim; Ramesh, K; White, Timothy


Hydroxyapatite (HAp) is attracting interest as a heterogeneous catalyst due to its "zeolitic" properties that allow tailoring of chemically active surface sites for specific applications. Here, the crystallographic modification of HAp through incorporation of zinc (Zn2+) was studied using diffraction and spectroscopic techniques. The preferential displacement of tunnel calcium (Ca2+) by covalently bonded Zn2+ inhibits crystal growth and promotes the retention of an amorphous (10-20 wt%)...[Show more]
