PhD #8: Porous ceramic frameworks for CO2 utilization

Open Position PhD #8

Chemical conversion processes, in particular with regard to CO2 utilization, typically take place at elevated temperatures and/or under chemically demanding conditions. Ceramics are ideal framework materials –e.g.  as  substrates  or  carriers  –  for  catalytic  reactions  and  biosynthetic  processes  due  to  their  excellent  thermal  stability,  chemical  and  biological  inertness,  and  corrosion  resistance.  This  project  involves  the  development  of  porous  ceramics  with  tailored  pore  structures  suitable  for  a  variety  of  CO2  utilization processes, employing new methodological approaches.
