We investigate fundamental relationships between catalytic properties and surface dynamics of nano-structured transition metal oxide and metal catalysts in activation of small molecules including C1-C4 alkanes, CO, and carbon dioxide.

Our model catalysts are functional and well-defined in terms of purity and homogeneity, which is guaranteed by using automated laboratory reactors in catalyst synthesis. We are aiming at measuring physical and chemical properties of catalysts in a quantitative manner by applying a combination of kinetic investigations and in-situ or operando spectroscopy.
