Loreta Muscarella received an NWO XS grant for groundbreaking research project

Loreta Muscarella (ICC) has received an NWO XS grant of 50.000 euro for groundbreaking research into photocatalysis. In this project, indoor pollution will be tackled by developing a smart perovskite-based photocatalyst that can simultaneously degrade a wide variety of indoor pollutants by fully exploiting the indoor light.

PhD defense: Porous Catalyst Characterization Using X-ray Nano Tomography and Pore Network Modeling

PhD defense Roozbeh Valadian This PhD thesis focuses mainly on the characterization of complex porous materials at the low micrometer and sub-micron length scale. The characterization techniques used in this PhD Thesis can be classified into two synchrotron-based X-ray microscopy (XRM) techniques: i) X-ray holotomography and ii) correlative ptychographic X-ray computed tomography (PXCT) and X-ray

Publication | Two for the price of one: Researchers design unique catalyst to make carbon-neutral transportation fuels

An important step towards a carbon-neutral society is making transportation fuels like diesel and gasoline from carbon-neutral carbon sources like biomass, waste plastic, and even CO2. Because diesel and gasoline have quite different hydrocarbon structures, combining these two functions into one catalyst material had so far eluded researchers. A team of researchers from Utrecht University
