On October 21, 2022, Laurens Mandemaker and Florian Meirer published a review in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Angewandte Chemie investigating the different micro-spectroscopic techniques available specifically for the detection of […]
This summer, Laura spent a couple of week in New York City to visit a partner from her consortium. You might have already seen some astonishing pictures from Central Park […]
Loreta Muscarella (ICC) has received an NWO XS grant of 50.000 euro for groundbreaking research into photocatalysis. In this project, indoor pollution will be tackled by developing a smart perovskite-based […]
Ina Vollmer and Ward van der Stam (both ICC) have received an NWO XS grant of 50.000 euro for curiosity-driven research into new ways to recycle plastic and CO2. Ina […]
An important step towards a carbon-neutral society is making transportation fuels like diesel and gasoline from carbon-neutral carbon sources like biomass, waste plastic, and even CO2. Because diesel and gasoline […]
ICC scientists, in cooperation with the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland, have discovered new fundamental insights into the reaction mechanism of CO2 hydrogenation. CO2 hydrogenation is one of a set […]
Catalysts are used in essentially all chemical processes to increase their efficiency and lower energy costs. They help by making the desired reaction pathways faster, or more favorable compared to […]
Deze week bereikte ons het droeve bericht dat Dr. Jos (A.J.) van Dillen op Kerstavond is overleden. Jos promoveerde in 1977 als eerste promovendus van John Geus aan de Universiteit […]
To celebrate the Christmas season, a few colleagues (Anne-Eva, Joyce, Thimo, Jim & Thomas) created the ICC Christmas song which you can listen to here. Enjoy!
Publication in Nature Catalysis Catalysts are important materials that are used to increase the resource and energy efficiency of chemical reactions and processes. Although catalysts operate in cycles that normally […]
A team of researchers from the ICC group at Utrecht University has solved one of the fundamental mysteries in catalysis: the paradox of structure insensitivity. The work was a collaboration […]
Jim de Ruiter has won the Poster Award for his poster “Time Resolved Spectral Footage of CO2 Electroreduction on Copper Catalysts” during the INTERECT conference in Valencia, organized by nanoGe.
