The group of Industrial Chemistry focuses on the principles of chemical convertors and those of the processes based on chemical convertors.
The group is active with two categories of projects:
- Improving the performance of existing commercial chemical convertors and the understanding on the governing factors, e.g. the mechanical strength of solid catalyst and the mechanical reliability of the catalytic convertors; improvement of the performance of DeNOx, three-way and hydrogen production catalysts and convertors.
- Promoting the commercialization of promising new reactions through revealing the limiting factors, e.g. lignocellulose fractionation and transformation to chemicals and fuels; photo-catalytic water splitting; advanced batteries; solid oxide fuel cells with direct carbon and hydrocarbon fuels; methane catalytic decomposition to hydrogen and nano-carbons and NO direct decomposition.

Undergoing EU projectS
Here are the presentations from Industrial Chemistry Group at the 2021 Fall ACS Meeting.
Lignin-based automotive and aviation fuels are one step closer to market as a new EU-funded project aims to develop new production methods for lignin-based transport fuels.
Welcome to Workshop on Catalytic Reactions with Ion Transfer through Interfaces (ITICAT2019), organized in August 15 - 17, 2019, as a pre-conference of EuropaCat2019.
