Current research topics on catalytic reactions, catalyst optimisation and reactor performance modelling
The main topics of our research are in the fields of heterogeneous catalysis, material chemistry and aspects of cultural heritage material conservation. The aim of our research is to explore structure-activity relationships in the fields of heterogeneous catalysis and materials science using advanced surface characterisation techniques in situ and operando.
We are the initiator of the development and promotion of conservation chemistry in the Faculty of Chemistry.
We are a group of scientists dedicated to studying the kinetics of chemical reactions occurring on the surfaces of solids. We specialise in surface chemistry and the study of reaction kinetics using advanced in situ and operando research methods, as well as the development of new research methods, including spectroscopic and microscopic techniques.
We use advanced testing methods, mainly spectroscopic (IR, UV-Vis, Raman) and coupled systems (e.g. AFM-Raman).
We build test setups, determine the performance, kinetics and pathway of heterogeneous reactions, mainly of catalysts for industrial processes
