Abstract

The present study presents an empirical screening study of the catalytic performance of a variety of supported materials for ammonia synthesis at 400 and 500 °C. Amongst the materials tested, those derived from Ru/Al2O3 exhibited the best performance. Supported Os and CoRe catalysts also demonstrated comparatively high activities indicating them to be potentially worthy of further investigation.
