Dicyclohexylmethane as a Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier: A Model Study on the Dehydrogenation Mechanism over Pd(111)

Abstract We have studied the dehydrogenation of the liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) dicyclohexylmethane (DCHM) to diphenylmethane (DPM) and its side reactions on a Pd(111) single crystal surface. The adsorption and thermal evolution of both DPM and DCHM was measured in situ in ultrahigh vacuum (UHV) using synchrotron radiation-based high-resolution X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (HR-XPS). We [...]
