Reaction mechanisms in confinement by advanced hard X-ray spectroscopy

– New project since July 2022 –

In project C10 established and recent hard X-ray methods available at synchrotron radiation sources will be developed and applied to study fundamental confinement effects in two dedicated cases: Cu- catalyzed CO2 hydrogenation and Cr-catalyzed oligomerization of ethylene. The identification of the active species, the reaction mechanisms and the determination of pore-wall interactions and geometric modifications of the used metal complexes by direct or indirect confinement influences, i.e. the appearance of direct pore wall – metal contacts or geometric distortions of the complex, form the key aims of the project
