PhD #5: Versatile and robust catalysts for CO2 hydrogenation to methanol

Open Position PhD #5

The conversion of CO2 to value-added platform chemicals such as methanol provides a route to address global climate change but also to reduce the dependency on fossil fuels. In this respect, catalysis plays a key  role.  This  PhD  thesis  is  dedicated  to  catalyst  development  for  CO2  conversion,  preferentially  to  methanol,   by   combining   synthesis,   materials   characterization,   reaction   kinetics,   and   operando   spectroscopy. Fundamental insights into the elementary reaction steps occurring at the catalyst surface will be the basis for a rational design and improvement of the catalytic materials.
