Research Focus

Energy

CO2 capture lignocellulose conversion

 

Catalysis

Heterogeneous (supported organometallics, zeolites, oxides, supported metals and metal sulfides, etc.); homogeneous (soluble organometallics and coordination compounds); interface of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis (polymer- and oxide-supported molecular catalysts and catalyst leaching)

 

Separations 

Materials for adsorptive and membrane separations
