Catalysts and systems incorporating the catalyst (ANL-IN-07-036)

A catalyst includes a carrier body and a catalytic portion carried by the carrier body

The catalytic portion includes a plurality of distinct layers of catalytic material, which layers may be deposited through atomic layer deposition techniques. The catalyst may have a selectivity for the conversion of alkanes to alkenes of over 50%. The catalyst may be incorporated in a reactor such as a fluidized bed reactor or a single pass reactor.
