Modeling Heterogeneous and Nanoparticle based catalysts


Our aim is to understand, improve and develop new catalysts for reactions with a potentially high industrial return (dry reforming of methane, Fischer-Tropsch, CO2 reduction, etc. etc.). Our efforts are mainly focused on catalysis promoted by metallic heterogeneous catalysts as well as by metal nanoparticles, either supported or not.
