Abstract
Industrial nanoporous catalysts suffer from diffusion limitations and catalyst deactivation caused by active site poisoning and pore blockage. While significant attention has been paid to designing new and improved catalysts at the nanoscale, there has been no concerted effort at linking the nanoscale to the macroscale within the framework of rational catalyst design. The questions that need to be answered are: (i) which pore network is optimal to best resist catalyst deactivation, and (ii) how to establish a framework for rational catalyst design at all length and time scales?
