Lecture Hall 57.02
We are very happy to welcome within the CRC 1333 Colloquium Series:
Thursday, February 1, 2024, 2:00 – 3:00 pm
Utrecht University, NL
The Weckhuysen group has been active for many years in the design, synthesis, characterization and application of catalytic solids for the conversion of fossil (crude oil & natural gas) and renewable feedstock (biomass and municipal waste) into transportation fuels, chemicals and materials. More recently, research is devoted to the catalytic activation of CO2 via thermal and electrocatalytic pathways and the photocatalytic and electrocatalytic splitting of water into hydrogen and oxygen, as well as the chemical recycling of plastics.
The group is internationally known for the development of in-situ and operando spectroscopy and microscopy for studying catalytic solids under realistic conditions. This approach has provided unique insights in the working and deactivation mechanisms of catalytic processes, as well as in the internal architecture of solid catalysts.
The CRC cordially invites all who are interested to the lecture.
