My research is about the application of Shell-Isolated Nanoparticle-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SHINERS) in heterogeneous catalysis. This ultrasensitive technique allows us to follow reactions on the nanoscale, while they are taking place on the surface of the catalyst. The focus lies mainly on Pt-catalyzed hydrogenation reactions.
