    Abstract: For a long time, many chemical reactions drew on catalysts, products used in smallest quantities compared to products-reagents, to accelerate their kinetics. In certain cases, one of the determining factors to improve these catalysts activities is the use of supports allowing dispersions and thereafter the effectiveness of its active sites.. It is ...
