Open PhD position
Structure-activity correlations of methanation catalysts via X-ray scattering
In this interdisciplinary project between a workgroup from Bochum, Paderborn and ours, novel bimetallic (Ni, Al) metal organic frameworks (MOFs) are synthesized. They are transformed into well-defined, highly active methanation catalysts to operate under dynamic operation conditions. It is the aim of this project to characterize their structure and structure-activity- to be trserve as pre-catalystcan be decomposed into highly active catalysts for methanation by controlled annealing to Al2O3 supported metal nanoparticles.
