Design and development of functionalized inorganic catalysts and adsorbents for energy and environmental applications. The focus is on in-depth research of structure-property relationship (research to the degree of "proof of concept"), with a special emphasis on the development and use of methods for the characterization of materials during their operation (in-situ and operando approaches).
