Metal Oxide Model Catalysts

Model Catalysis on insulating metal oxides

Understanding the Atomic Scale Synergies of Catalytically Active Nanoclusters on Metal Oxide Surfaces

This research theme concerns the application of new experimental methods for atomic-scale characterization of model catalysts based on insulating metal oxides with the goal of exploring the potential for designing new and efficient heterogeneous catalysts by enhanced control of the catalyst structure at the atomic level. This objective will be achieved by a carefully integrated sequence of synthesis, characterization, and reactivity measurements of model catalysts based on the insulating metal oxides used as integral parts of most industrial heterogeneous catalysts.
