Three-dimensional Printing for Catalytic Applications: Current Status and Perspectives

Three-dimensional Printing for Catalytic Applications: Current Status and Perspectives
Xintong Zhou, Chang-jun Liu
Three-dimensional (3D) printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is a fabrication method that has recently received worldwide attention. It provides a convenient and economical way to prepare 3D structures in designable ways. As the technology has developed and the operational costs have decreased, the applications of 3D printing have greatly expanded. Catalyst fabrication is a promising area for 3D printing. Printing processes result in better control of catalyst structures and catalyst distribution. In this perspective, a general overview of the commonly available 3D printing methods that are feasible for the preparation of heterogeneous catalysts is given. Additionally, recent works on printing strategies and new materials for catalysts are discussed. Future development is also addressed.
