PhD defence: Advanced Zeolite Characterisation Methods to Investigate the Methanol-to-Hydrocarbons Reaction

Sophie has successfully defended her PhD thesis. Her supervisor was Prof. Bert Weckhuysen. Congratulations Sophie! Exploration of Non-Commodity Zeolite Framework for Small Molecule Activation: Acidity, Reactivity and Coke Formation Zeolites are widely used solid catalysts. Although there are more than 235 zeolite frameworks reported, almost all zeolite-based catalytic processes are performed by a limited number

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
