Molecular design of catalysts


Design and synthesis of mono- and multifunctional catalysts with well defined, homogeneous active sites. Characterization by means of spectroscopic techniques combined with the use of probe molecules. Study of their reactivity in chemical processes, defined by a single step or by several steps (cascade reactions).
