Heterogeneous catalysis : recent advances in preparation and characterization


Heterogeneous catalysis is involved in numerous industrial processes with important impacts on our society and economy. The characterization of theses catalysts – physical properties, efficacy, selectivity – involves analysis techniques which are often applied in situ, enabling real-time investigation during reactions. The aim of this two-day conference is to present current research on catalysts, focusing on their preparation and characterization, in particular at large-scale facilities.
