Reaction Engineering | Catalysis

Led by senior faculty members Fan, Feinberg, Ho, and Ozkan, reaction engineering and catalysis have long been strong focal points in the department.

With the addition of Asthagiri and Brunelli, this area has gained depth both experimentally (Brunelli) and computationally (Asthagiri).

Topics of interest are largely focused on energy and environmental problems, and include the development of:

  1. Heterogeneous catalysts and reactors for biomass conversion (Brunelli, Fan, Ozkan)

  2. Heterogeneous catalysts and reactors for waste water treatment (Ozkan, Ho);

  3. Heterogeneous catalysts and reactors for fuel cells (Asthagiri, Ozkan, Ho), and

  4. Heterogeneous catalysts and reactors for efficient conversion of coal and natural gas (Asthagiri, Ozkan, Brunelli, Fan).
