Method For Synthesis Of Gamma-aluminium Oxide Using Plasma - Modified Aluminium And Water Reaction.

Method for synthesis of gamma Al2O3 using plasma-modified aluminum and water reactions. It is low-cost and effective way to produce nano crystalline gamma alumina powder. Such powder can be used as a basis for catalyst or catalyst carrier (eg. in the petrochemical industry).

Method of hydrogenation of metals and their alloys.

Method of hydrogenation of metals and their alloys when there is no need to use precious metals (Pt, Pd) as a catalyst in order to synthesize metal hydrides. Method for storing hydrogen in metals and forming hydride compounds up to 10 times faster was developed using plasma technologies.

Method of hydrogen extraction from water, employing water interaction with the surfaces of metals or their alloys activated in plasma.

It is a way of hydrogen extraction from water using reaction between water molecules and surface of plasma activated aluminum. Such metal-water reaction produces a significant amount of hydrogen gas that can be used in fuel cells to generate electricity.

In total, we have 96 scientists and 50 researchers
