Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert worked for Climax Molydbenum company where R&D work involved the preparation and testing of many molybdenum-based catalysts. The catalyst supports included alumina, silica, charcoal, titania, and zirconia. Model processes involved reforming, HDS, and syngas conversion to hydrocarbons. Expert worked on a process to manufacture molybdenum hexacarbonyl large scale, and has a patent for his process. Fundametal molybdenum chemistry was used and explored for many applications. Expert's Doctoral work involved the chemisty and synthesis of Group 6 carbonly compounds. Expert has also been involved in the preparation and manufacture of high purity molybdenum, tungsten, and gallium. Expert assisted in the manufacture of organo-titanium compounds as catalysts for polyethylene and polystyrene. He has synthesized cobalt and molybdenum sulfide catalysts for the conversion of syn gas into mixed alcohols.
