Catalytic Science and Engineering
Catalytic science and engineering is the forefront research area that can address currently pressing energy and env ironmental problems. Development of new catalysts can impact various areas from environmentally benign petro chemical processes to efficient renewable energy conversions, and to environmental control, thereby leading to the clean energy society. Being the heart of numerous applications, catalysis research is a highly interdisciplinary field exhibiting a plethora of concepts, approaches and facets. Our research areas include, but not limited to, heteroge neous, homogeneous, photo-, electro-, and photoelectro-catalysis. Synergistic collaborations with theoretical scientists, reaction engineers, and spectroscopists are actively pursued. Catalysis researches at UNIST are carried out with in-house access to a large range of experimental techniques for the characterization of catalysts and catalytic processes at the atomic and molecular level, including liquid and solid state NMR, in situ IR, Raman, TEM, SEM, XPS, STM, AFM, and SECM.
