    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ostovar, Abdollah (Author) ; Khorasheh, Farhad (Supervisor) ; Larimi, Afsaneh Sadat (Supervisor)
    Due to the increasing consumption of fuel, the use of new methods with high efficiency to remove sulfur from fossil fuels is felt more than ever. Hydrogenation and oxidation of sulfur organic matter, such as thiophenes, is an old method of desulfurization of liquid fuels. Using a photocatalyst, everything can be done in an environment that is very low cost. In this study, the photocatalytic elimination of dibenzothiophene was investigated. For this purpose, carbon-doped thiamine dioxide was used as the photocatalytic base, which is synthesized by hydrothermal method. This method is the same source of titanium and carbon. To increase the performance of the catalyst, platinum metal was loaded...

    Platinum is one of the most used catalysts in refining and petrochemical industries. Also, Platinum uses in other industries like automobile catalytic convertor. As respect to importance of Platinum in these industries, growth of its consumption in recent decades and its very high price, recovery of Platinum is essential. Hence, many of various methods including hydro-metallurgy are applied. In despite of these wide spreading experimental investigations, due to low information about the reactions and the nature of reaction products, a few investigations were done on kinetics of Platinum recovery. A new method that used iodine solution to extract Platinum from spent reforming catalysts was...
