Heterogeneous Catalysts for Selective Chemical Processes


The scientific interest of the research group consist in the synthesis and characterization of heterogeneous catalysts for their application in the production of high added value compounds and compounds of interest in the Fine Chemical industry. More specifically, the application of carbon nanomaterials, carbon nanotubes and graphene oxides and their derivatives, as catalysts or supports for active phases (metal or metal oxide nanoparticles, metal complexes), is investigated, emphasizing in their functionalization and in the study of the resulting properties.
