Synthesis-structure-function relationships of heterogeneous catalysts

About us


Innovative synthetic approaches for designing zeolites at sub-nm level; advanced characterization of the atomic-level active site structure; alternative “green” catalytic routes towards value-added chemicals


To revolutionise the conventional thinking about advantages and limitations of heterogeneous catalystsby establishing a new class of single-site zeolite acid catalysts. These engineered materials will foster comprehensive experimental and computational studies on structure-function relationships in heterogeneous catalysts and trigger the emergence of innovative catalytic routes towards value-added chemicals. In addition to potentially increasing the activity and selectivity of this new generation of zeolite catalysts, their use will provide predictable catalytic processes highly desirable for industrial-scale chemistry.
