    Design of single-site catalysts for selective hydrogenations

    My project explores the development of single-site metal catalysts based on a new type of solid support, mesoporous graphitic carbon nitride (mpg-C3N4). Advanced techniques as XPS, EXAFS, STEM, PALS, high-resolution gas sorption are applied to examine the chemical structure and porosity of mpg-C3N4 and the catalysts are evaluated in a number of important selective hydrogenations.
