In the actual Vietnamese context, the catalytic “needs” to be fulfilled spread through several industrial sectors and attain various environmental and energetic issues including:

  1. Catalyst for gas phase processes, gas purification and post-process gaseous waste treatment e.g. Catalyst supports and adsorption materials, i.e. nano-materials, sieve-like materials (SAPO, ALPO), mesoporous materials (MCM, SBAs), oxides (ZrO2, Al2O3, Fe2O3, TiO2) (possible cooperation partner Hanoi: HUST – Nguyen Hong Lien, Pham Thanh Huyen, Dao Quoc Tuy; VNU‑HUS – Le Thanh Son, Nguyen Van Noi; Rostock: UR – Udo Kragl, Ralf Ludwig, Michael Nelles; LIKAT – Johannes de Vries, Angelika Brückner, Andreas Martin)

  2. Catalysis for chemical and energy conversion e.g. selective oxidation of alkanes, oxidative dehydrogenation of n-butane, Fisher-Tropsch synthesis of hydrocarbons, catalytic cracking and esterification for the production of biodiesel. These technologies aim to cover the increasing demand of hydrocarbon fuels for mobile applications, parallel to the development of hydrogen and battery-based alternatives. (possible cooperation partner Hanoi: HUST – Pham Thanh Huyen, Van Dinh Son Tho, Nguyen Anh Vu; VNU-HUS – Nguyen Thanh Binh; Rostock: UR – Peter Langer, Udo Kragl, Michael Nelles; LIKAT – Matthias Beller, Johannes de Vries, Angelika Brückner, Andreas Martin)

  3. Catalysts for mitigation of the effects of human activities on the environment e.g. sequestration of heavy metals on soil and water, complete oxidation of aromatic hydrocarbons, hydro dechlorination of tetrachlorethylene, oxidation of CO and reduction of NOx in the atmosphere. (possible cooperation partner Hanoi: HUST – Prof. Le Minh Thang, Dr. Vuong Thanh Huyen; VNU-HUS – Tran Hong Con, Do Quang Trung, Nguyen Xuan Hai, Nguyen Ngoc Minh, Nguyen Thi Ha, Vu Van Manh, Le Thi Hoang Oanh; Rostock: UR – Peter Langer, Ralf Ludwig; Michael Nelles, Bettina Eichler-Löbermann; LIKAT – Matthias Beller, Johannes de Vries, Angelika Brückner, Andreas Martin)

  4. (Photo)catalysis for treatment (scavenging) of organic compounds and heavy metals in waste water e.g. using nano-TiO2 and nano-TiO2 doped with transition metals (V, Cr, Fe, etc) and main-group elements (N, F, Cl, etc) (possible cooperation partner Hanoi: HUST – Le Minh Thang, Nguyen Hong Lien, VNU – Tran Hong Con, Nguyen Minh Phuong, Pham Ngo Nghia, Nguyen Xuan Hai, Nguyen Ngoc Minh, Nguyen Thi Ha, Vu Van Manh, Le Thi Hoang Oanh; Rostock: UR – Axel Schulz, Ralf Ludwig, LIKAT – Johannes de Vries, Angelika Brückner, Andreas Martin)
