Aims
In the end of the cursus, students should know
1) basic terms in catalysis
2) important topics in homogeneous catalysis, heterogeneous catalysis and biocatalysis
3) new directions in catalysis
4) important industrial catalytic processes
5) examples of catalysis in green chemistry and environment
Content
1. Introduction + basic terms in catalysis
2. Homogeneous catalysis + electrocatalysis + photocatalysis
3. Heterogeneous catalysis + photocatalysis
4. Characterization of catalysts
