Area C: Analysis, Theory and Simulation
In Area C and sub-project S1 we take a detailed look at the interaction between catalyst, reactant(s) and product(s), both with each other and with the pore wall.
To this end, we analyze the electronic and geometric structure of immobilized catalysts and support materials using a comprehensive set of experimental and theoretical methods covering all relevant length scales. Additionally, we will measure and simulate the mass transport into the pore towards the catalyst and away from it.
This will enable us to quantitatively describe the effect of individual pore parameters on catalysis and to rationalize the catalytic results from Area B.
