Diffusion and Reaction Dynamics

The workgroup "Diffusion and Reaction Dynamics" focuses on mass transfer limitations within micro- and mesoporous materials in modern catalysis research. Often, the rate of chemical reactions is limited by mass transfer within these nanoporous catalysts. Thus, an understanding of the transport mechanisms of molecular species confined to nanopores is essential for improving the efficiency of solid catalysts for numerous applications. Our group focuses on the reaction dynamics and mass transfer processes in nanoscopic constraints of solid catalysts as studied using modern multinuclear NMR techniques (1H, 13C, 129Xe).
