New and more efficient catalytic materials
Combination of highest selectivity and reactivity with robustness, synthetic availability, and ease of processing
Research Area D deals with the development of advanced catalytic materials focusing on three demonstrator applications in selective C- C-coupling and C-C-cleavage reactions. For these applications, the full research chain from the design of individual catalytic centers on the molecular level to an almost technical, pilot-plant scenario is established, including material design, characterization, synthesis, and production as well as reaction engineering studies up to pilot-plant scale.
