Catalysts for syngas and CO2 conversion to higher alcohols
The direct synthesis of heavy alcohols from syngas and CO2 offers the potential to switch from petroleum-based to natural gas, biomass and solar feedstocks. Bimetallic catalysts stand out as possible candidates, but the nature of active sites and their interactions with promoters and supports remain unclear. My research focuses on understanding their individual roles and thereby designing formulations which may enable future industrial applications.
