Research Activities - Prof. Dr. Angelika Brückner

Scientific and technical experiences

  • Application of physico-chemical methods for monitoring catalysts in status operandi (operando spectroscopy: in particular EPR, UV-vis, Raman)
  • catalyst characterization
  • structure-function relationships in catalysis

 Present main research topics 

  • structure-function relationships of catalysts based on transition metal oxides and supported metals in transformations of hydrocarbons (selective oxidation, dehydrogenation, oligomerization)
  • simultaneous couplings of several operando methods for monitoring heterogeneous catalytic gas phase reactions
  • adaption of operando methods for liquid phase processes (homogeneous and heterogeneous) under elevated pressure
  • adaption of coupled in situ-methods for monitoring catalyst synthesis
  • catalytically active  transition metal centres in zeolites
