Research mission

The research activities in the laboratory of Adsorption and Catalysis are focussed on: - The development of new micro- and mesoporous inorganic materials; - The development of materials with a combined micro- and mesoporous structure; - Optimalization of synthesis pathways for inorganic materials with a controlled porosity; - Catalytic activation of porous materials; - Optimalization of porous materials for efficient gas- and liquid separations; - Characterization of porous materials.
