Technical catalysts with new properties

With ‘CLINT’ (Catalysis at Liquid Interfaces), FAU has received approval for another Collaborative Research Centre. The speaker is Prof. Dr. Peter Wasserscheid, Chair of Chemical Reaction Engineering. The CRC is pursuing a completely new approach in chemical reaction engineering as it is using the highly-dynamic anisotropic environment of gaseous-liquid and liquid-solid interfaces to create technical catalysts with new properties and as yet unattained productivity, stability and manageability. The aim is to combine the understanding of catalytic processes with targeted material development, which is why the research will include everything from model systems to real catalysts and incorporate in-situ methods.
