Research area

Flame synthesis of catalytic-materials
The flame spray pyrolysis (FSP) unit allows to produce fast a variety of novel material combination.
The new material properties can be measured and the performance determined. For example selective deposition in a multi-compound system can be made.

Characterization of particles
Materials need to be characterized in order that they can be compared to each other. Typical characterization methods include surface measurements (BET) and crystal structure investigation (XRD).

Catalytic testing for gas phase reactions
