    The chemical transformation of small abundant molecules and bio-based compounds is essential for sustainable development of various industrial sectors. In line with the Global Goals, our research creates fundamental knowledge essential for the development of catalytic materials and their integration into emerging process concepts for energy conversion systems, and contributes to industrial decarbonization and process circularity.

    We combine our knowledge in physical chemistry and engineering to study complex multiphase (solid/gas/liquid) catalytic reaction systems stimulated by (solar) light or electrical energy. Moreover, we integrate thermal energy or other stimuli to synergistically improve catalytic performances. Reactions of interest include water oxidation, production of oxidizing chemicals, hydrogen generation, selective alcohol oxidation, oxidative decarboxylation of carboxylic acids and purification of (industrial) waste streams using metal oxides and carbon based compounds.
