Research Interest

Hydrogen based Energy and especially Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers are currently the focus of the energy evolution. To allow the technology to flourish, optimization of the catalysts for hydrogen release (dehydrogenation) and hence the reaction conditions is needed. This is achieved through the synthesis of catalysts with well defined properties on the nanoscale as well as the development of bimetallic catalysts.
