My project aims to develop and validate an integrated in-situ multi-spectroscopic approach (Raman, ATR-IR, UV-VIS) for characterization of lignin starting samples, monitoring lignin depolymerization and valorization processes at high temperatures and pressures, and monitoring catalyst performance and deactivation under relevant reaction conditions.
Due to the complexity and multivariate nature of the in-situ spectroscopic data, advanced multivariate analysis techniques will be employed to reduce the dimensionality of the data, reveal the inherent structure of the data and interpret the spectroscopic data into qualitative and quantitative chemical information.
