In-depth Investigation of Porous Catalysts, Relating Their Complex Pore Space to Catalyst Performance

Knowledge about the active sites of a heterogenous catalyst and their accessibility is crucial for understanding the catalytic performance of specific material. In this project, we will try to couple the physicochemical properties of the catalyst which are obtained by different vibrational spectroscopy investigations during the probe molecule sorption studies with single particle trajectories of fluorophores in the catalyst which are acquired by single molecule florescence microscopy experiments. Different florescence and porous materials will also be synthesized to build specific models for these studies.
