New grant has been won

A three-year project aimed at investigating palladium nanocatalysts was supported by the Federal Target Program


The Smart Materials Research Center has won a grant of Federal Target Program for the investigation of palladium nanocatalysts during important oxidation reactions. This three-year project will be held together with ETH Zurich, which is on a top10 position in QS and Times rankings. The project involves computer multiscale modelling, synthesis and operando characterization of palladium nanoparticles during oxidation of methane and alcohols using large scale facilities, in particular, Swiss Light Source (Switzerland) and European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (France).
