The paper published by CQE researchers Pedro S.F. Mendes (PhD candidate in 2013-2017), João M. Silva and M. Filipa Ribeiro was distinguished as Hot Article by the editorial board of Catalysis Science Technology journal. The paper entitled “A systematic study on mixtures of Pt/zeolite as hydroisomerization catalysts” combined experimental and kinetic modelling studies to rationalize the behaviour of hybrid catalyts in the hydroisomerization of paraffins. This work is a result of a joint PhD thesis between the CATHPRO group of CQE and IFP Energies nouvelles, in France.
