Dataset for characterization data of palladium alumina on activated biochar catalyst for hydrogenolysis reactions

Published: 3 November 2021| Version 3 | DOI: 10.17632/v38nbb9rtp.3


Raw profiles and images were collected for the biochar, activated biochar, and metal-loaded activated biochar. The catalysts were characterized using XRD (Bruker D8 Discover), TGA (SDT Q600, T.A. Instruments), NH3–TPD (Micromeritics Autochem-2920), Pyridine diffuse reflectance infrared Fourier transform spectroscopy (DRIFT, Thermofisher Scientific NICOLET iS50 FTIR spectrometer), XPS (PHI5000 Version Probe III (ULVAC-PHI)), HRSEM (Hitachi S-4800) and HRTEM (JEM-2100 Plus, JEOL, Japan). The aim of this dataset is to provide open-source collection data on which characterization analysis was performed on the catalysts to develop innovative methods.
