Design of an expert system for the alkylation of aromatics by zeolites as shape selective catalysts

Project: PHD

Project Details


A prototype expert system is developed in the field of zeolite catalysis. More especially, qualitative and quantitative informations about aromatic reactions are represented in a knowledge base. Reasoning mechanisms simulating human thinking abilities are proposed to efficiently use the program's knowledge in order to deduce relations between the physico-chemical properties and zeolite catalytic properties.
