Inventing new methods and tools with less energy to manipulate chemical bonds

Catalytic transformations stand at the forefront of chemistry – these reactions can significantly reduce the input of energy to manipulate chemical bonds opening up novel reaction pathways. Cutting-edge research is focused on developing novel homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts derived from organic and inorganic molecules as well as atomically defined solid-solution interfaces. Knowledge gained through these studies will allow for increased efficiency in the production of new medicines, activation of chemical species and the conversion of solar energy.  See more faculty interested in this theme »
