In situ formation of ZnO<sub>x</sub> species for efficient propane dehydrogenation

Nature, Published online: 10 November 2021; doi:10.1038/s41586-021-03923-3

Propene is obtained through propane dehydrogenation using catalysts that are toxic, expensive or demanding to regenerate with ecologically harmful compounds, but the ZnO-based alternative reported here is cheap, clean and scalable.
