Research Outcome Seminar on Catalysts and Catalytic Processes

From 9-11am on 30 March 2022

Qatar National Research Fund cordially invites you to its Research Outcome Seminar (ROS) on “Catalysts and Catalytic Processes”.

A substance that can speed up the reaction process without being consumed by it, catalysts are often perfect candidates to lower the activation energy or modify the mechanism of a process.

Today, catalysis is significant in industry and industrial research and various catalysts are constantly being developed to meet economic and environmental objectives. A homogeneous or heterogeneous catalyst that delivers a different reaction with lower activation energy and better selectivity control can have a significant impact on process feasibility, the environment, and economics.

For example, it is feasible to replace a polluting chemical reaction with a more ecologically friendly alternative when utilizing a catalyst.

QNRF has been supporting, over the last years, research projects into different disciplines that use Catalysts and Catalytic Processes for different applications (Oil & Gas, LNG, Petrochemicals, CO2 Conversion, fuel cells, etc.). This seminar aims to gather members of the local scientific community dealing with such approaches and to highlight the outcomes of their projects and their integrated role in enhancing our understanding of complex systems.

We look forward to seeing you there!
