Utrecht University’s Catalytic Chemistry Research Takes Spotlight

In the CONDOR project, Utrecht University is actively involved in activities related to the design, assembly, characterization, and catalytic testing of catalysts for syngas conversion to dimethyl ether (DME), involving novel synthesis and advanced characterization techniques. Over the next few months, Utrecht University will be participating in two significant events, showcasing their research endeavours and commitment to advancing catalytic chemistry.

  •  International Symposium Catalytic Chemistry of C1 Molecules

Date: July 10th – 12th, 2024

Location: Lille, France

This symposium focuses on the catalytic utilization of C1 molecules, offering insights into the development of energy-efficient, selective, and waste-free catalytic processes. During the event Yuang Piao from the Debye Institute for Nanomaterials Science, Utrecht University (Supervisor: Prof. Petra de Jongh), will deliver an oral presentation, delving into investigation about the multi-scale distance effect on Cu-based bifunctional catalysts for the conversion of H2/COx to dimethyl ether, examining how varying distances within the bifunctional catalysts affect both the CO to methanol conversion and the methanol dehydration processes.

  • 18th International Congress on Catalysis

Date: July 14th – 19th, 2024

Location: Lyon, France

This congress aims to promote disruptive catalysis, addressing global challenges such as the environment, energy, mobility, and the circular economy. With a focus on fostering collaborative interactions and engaging the young generation of talented scientists, the congress promises to be a platform for innovative ideas and solutions. Yuang Piao will be presenting a poster during the event, contributing to the discourse on catalysis-driven solutions for a sustainable future.
