#442 - Science and Engineering of Catalyst Preparation I (20055)
Heterogeneous catalyst preparation is often viewed as more of an art than as a rational route to the synthesis of materials with chosen properties. This session seeks contributions on developing engineering rules for catalyst synthesis and contributions on understanding the fundamental science behind the preparation of heterogeneous catalysts. Relevant catalyst systems potentially include supported metal catalysts, supported and bulk catalytic oxide structures, and hybrid organic-inorganic systems.
