Expert in Catalyst Development, Molybdenum Chemistry, Process Development
many molybdenum-based catalysts. The catalyst supports included alumina, silica, charcoal, titania, and zirconia. Model processes
involved reforming, HDS, and syngas conversion to hydrocarbons. Expert worked on a process to manufacture molybdenum
hexacarbonyl large scale, and has a patent for his process. Fundametal molybdenum chemistry was used and explored for many
applications. Expert's Doctoral work involved the chemisty and synthesis of Group 6 carbonly compounds.
Expert has also been involved in the preparation and manufacture of high purity molybdenum, tungsten, and gallium.
Expert assisted in the manufacture of organo-titanium compounds as catalysts for polyethylene and polystyrene.
He has synthesized cobalt and molybdenum sulfide catalysts for the conversion of syn gas into mixed alcohols.
Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: Denver, Colorado - Colorado Springs, Colorado - Aurora, Colorado - Fort Collins, Colorado - Arvada, Colorado - Westminster, Colorado - Boulder, Colorado - Greeley, Colorado - Longmont, Colorado - Cheyenne, Wyoming
