Modern catalysis associated with refinery and petrochemistry is almost 6 decades old. Similarly, Haber-Bosch process for ammonia production is a century old. There is a growing need for new catalysts for cleaner and sustainable future requiring advanced design and understanding the catalytic process from molecular level to macroscale.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together experts in catalysis with experts in x-ray science to identify scientific frontiers, and relate them x-ray techniques and shape the future developments. This can be done by articulating the nature of the catalytic reaction and material requirements, and commensurate improvements of design of new hardware, software, and computational tools.
