Welcome


Catalytic reactions with ion transfer through interfaces have been a dynamic research topic for a long time both in catalysis and chemical reaction engineering. In recent several decades, the knowledge accumulated on such topics has facilitated the fast development of energy transformation and storage technologies. In many applications, e.g., proton exchange membrane fuel cells, lithium-batteries, membrane and photo-catalytic reactors for chemical production and pollutant abatement, and reactions with ion transfer, have already become the core of the technologies in fast commercial penetration. In recent years, we are also experiencing fast, exciting and potentially high impact progresses on such topics as water splitting cells, solid oxide fuel cells, new concept batteries and supercapacitors.

On the occasion of the 18th-ICC (International Congress on Catalysis), colleagues at Aalto University organize the 3rd workshop of ITICAT (2024) as a pre-conference of the main conference. The first and second workshops in 2019 and 2023 were very successful (see https://www.aalto.fi/en/events/the-second-workshop-on-catalytic-reactions-with-ion-transfer-through-interfaces-iticat2023, and https://www.aalto.fi/en/iticat2019). The purpose of the 3rd workshop is still to offer a forum to present the new breakthroughs and to exchange the fundamental understandings on the steps and kinetics of such catalytic reactions. The organizers especially encourage communications on the design principles of the reactors for such reactions, i.e., those with ion transfer through interfaces.

July is the best season of Helsinki metropolitan area in Finland, offering a beautiful maritime scenery, world-renowned architectural designs as well as a bustling city scene. Helsinki is also the best place for the linkage of different continents with frequent connects globally. Dipoli building, the conference venue, is a fine representative of Finnish architecture and locates in the university’s Otaniemi campus in the city of Espoo, which is the most sustainable city of Europe. From Dipoli, it takes about 15 min to reach Helsinki city center by metro or taxi.

Colleagues in the organizing committee, working on the principles and processes of energy transformation and storage, would like to extend their warmest hospitality to host colleagues coming from all over the world.  In this way, we also make our contribution to the success of the 18th-ICC.

On behalf of all the organizers, I would appreciate greatly your coming and contribution to the 3rd workshop on “Catalytic Reactions with Ion Transfer through Interfaces”.

Sincerely,

Yongdan Li

Professor of Industrial Chemistry, Aalto University, Finland
 

Topics

Topics for the parallel sessions and abstract submission:

  1. Catalysis and ion transfer in electrolysis cells and fuel cells
  2. Catalysis and ion transfer in photo-stimulated reactions
  3. Catalysis and interfacial steps in batteries
  4. Coupling of catalysis and membrane processes
  5. Catalysis with ion transfer in other energy and chemical processes
  6. Hydrogen and ammonia as the energy carriers
  7. Reaction engineering of reactions with ion transfer
  8. Catalytic reactions with importance in energy and environment

Submission of abstracts and participation to the workshop are welcome for all the colleagues in catalysis over the world. Nevertheless, a submission can only be considered as a poster presentation if it cannot be catalogued into the eight topics of the workshop.
