Above is a youtube video of the Web Lab “Dynamic diffusion and reaction in a porous solid catalyst.” Click on the image to play the video. Click on the “full screen” icon in the lower-right of the player to expand the video. This lab shows a self-inhibiting reaction which can be considered a prototype of carbon monoxide oxidation over precious metals and other self-inhibiting reactions. Multiple steady states and enhanced conversion during periodic operation can be obtained. Link to the video on youtube (link). Our research paper on this topic (link).

Animation of adsorbed CO diffusing over a Pt surface and reacting with an adsorbed O atom to form CO2. Diameter of C, O and Pt atoms are to scale. Animation made by Ivan Gagné.

Parallel reaction system in a batch reactor. The contents of the reactor are plotted continuously on the right side of the window (1 min of simulation time in 10 s real time). The user can change kinetic parameters, open and close valves, pause and resume the reaction and the simulation, and save data to disk files for analysis.
