My research focuses on the fundamental design of nano-structured catalysts, investigate the structure and performance of heterogeneous catalysts. Thus, to define the relationships between structural and chemical properties of solid materials and their catalytic properties by applying spectroscopy under in situ and during reaction conditions with activity measurement. And the application of such catalysts for fine chemical synthesis and the production and utilization of cleaner fuels such as hydrogen. My recent work examines the characterization of metal clusters attached to the nodes of MOFs, relationships between geometry and electronic structure of the esemble of atoms that forms the catalytically active site are sought. Where possible the experimental studies are complemented by develop microkinetic models for catalytic reactions. In particular, by applying the “degree of rate control” as descriptor of performance of catalyst into catalytic reactions.
