Prof. Angelika Brückner
Main current Research interests:
- structure-function relationships of metal and metal oxide catalysts in transformations of hydrocarbons (selective oxidation, dehydrogenation, oligomerization)
- development of spectroscopic operando methods for monitoring heterogeneous and homogeneous catalytic processes (also under elevated pressure) with special focus on simultaneous coupling of several operando methods in the same experiment
- adaption of (coupled) in situ-methods for monitoring catalyst synthesis as well as photo- and electrocatalytic reactions
- catalytically active transition metal centres in zeolites
