Researchers have discovered two pieces of a scientific puzzle in the most widely used process for removing polluting sulfur compounds from crude oil. The discovery could help chemists tailor the catalytic process, known as hydrodesulfurization, for maximum efficiency and economy, according to Paul S. Weiss, professor of chemistry at Penn State, who conducted the research along with Penn State graduate student James G. Kushmerick.
