Rising CO2 concentration in the atmosphere constitutes one of the most challenging problems of today’s society. Therefore, using CO2 as reactant for producing value-added products, e.g. hydrocarbons or alcohols, offers a promising starting point to handle this issue. My research project focuses on CO2 hydrogenation over supported catalyst systems. In order to gain a fundamental understanding of the influence of varying structural properties on catalytic performance, detailed structural characterization will be combined with in situ characterization. A special emphasis will be laid on X-ray absorption spectroscopy.
