Athanasios Kritikos

Graduate Student (PhD)

Our project involves the study of solvent effects is biomass processing by means of advanced spectroscopic techniques. We are particularly interested in studying the conformational change of sugars in the presence of homogeneous as well as heterogeneous catalytic materials.

Adam Zuber

Graduate Student (PhD)

Our focus is on the preparation of sulfated mixed metal oxides with controlled surface dispersed active species suitable for alkylation reactions. We aim to investigate the molecular structure as well as the catalytic properties of those materials by means of Operando Raman/FTIR spectroscopies.

Trang Tran

Graduate Student (PhD)

Our project involves the preparation of high surface TiO2 by utilizing cheap and renewable templates. We are fully characterizing the new TiO2 with several techniques such as, Raman, FTIR, XRD, SEM and TEM. Specific attention is placed on unraveling the effect of synthesis conditions on the final morphology as well as molecular structure of TiO2 by incorporating vibrational spectroscopy into the individual synthesis steps. 

Hedun Wang

Graduate Student (PhD)

Our research focuses on developing novel catalysts for the Oxidative Dehydrogenation of alkanes using CO2 as mild oxidant. It is of our intent to investigate the molecular structure as well as the catalytic properties of those materials by means of Operando Raman spectroscopy.
