Stable Nickel catalysts for Methane Dry Reforming reaction.
Our recent contributions published in JACS show how the understanding of Ni and Ni-Fe NP catalysts deactivation mechanisms leads to improved catalyst design. This work is a collaboration with ETH Laboratory of Energy Science and Engineering (ESE). Check it out.
Nanomagnets for future data storage
Our recent research entitiled "Magnetic Memory from Site Isolated Dy(III) on Silica Materials" published in ACS Central Science was highlighted by ETH website among other severalm web news portals!
Combined experimental and theoretical approach to understand CH3
Olefin Metathesis Catalysts
Our JACS paper entitled "Role of Tricoordinate Al Sites in CH3
Olefin Metathesis Catalysts" was highlighted by CASTEP website. The code was used for NMR chemical shift calculations.
