The work in this thesis explores a novel catalyst support design. In this design a macro-porous basis is used to immobilize a layer of carbon nanofibers (CNFs) agglomerates with the possible addition of a grown CNF binder layer. The synthesis of this grown CNF binder layer poses additional fundamental questions on CNF growth. The produced catalyst support is tested for activity and selectivity in a fast heterogeneous reaction, in this case nitrite hydrogenation in liquid phase.
