Structure-dependent microkinetic analysis of heterogeneous catalytic processes methodology and applications


Topics and thesis:

- Development of a methodology for the analysis of structure-activity relations in heterogeneous catalysis

- Effect of the catalyst structure on reactivity and selectivity is at present neglected in state-ofthe-art microkinetic analysis

- Multiscale analysis based on structuredependent microkinetic modelling is essential for a detailed mechanistic understanding of catalyst functionality
- Novel experimental tools and first-principles analysis

- Application to selected examples in the context of CH4 activation and NO oxidation Preliminary
