Research group


Synthesis, characterization and performance of well-defined solid catalysts and related functional materials for energy storage and physicochemical conversion processes.


Catalyst synthesis techniques and advanced spectroscopy for the study of catalytic materials under working conditions.

Fundamental challenge

To establish a relationship between structure and catalytic function at different length scales ranging from the single atomic and molecule level over the micro-, meso- and macroscopic scale up to the level of small reactor set-ups.
