Inorganic Chemistry and Catalysis Group

The research in the Inorganic Chemistry and Catalysis group involves synthesis, characterization and performance of well-defined solid catalysts and related functional materials for gas storage and photochemical conversion processes. Strongholds are catalyst synthesis techniques and advanced spectroscopy for the study of catalyst materials under working conditions.
