Photo-Oxidation Catalysts

NREL (Inventor)

Research output: Patent


Photo-oxidation catalysts and methods for cleaning a metal-based catalyst are disclosed. An exemplary catalyst system implementing a photo-oxidation catalyst may comprise a metal-based catalyst, and a photo-oxidation catalyst for cleaning the metal-based catalyst in the presence of light. The exposure to light enables the photo-oxidation catalyst to substantially oxidize absorbed contaminants andreduce accumulation of the contaminants on the metal-based catalyst. Applications are also disclosed.
