What’s in it?

ADVANCED SYNTHESIS AND CATALYSIS – You might wonder: What is this all about? You want us to tell you straight? Well, we assume you have basic knowledge about fundamental chemical processes. And you are also curious about the nooks and grannies in custom designing molecules, with all the real live challenges and impact? – PERFECT, then read on…

Catalysis is one of the most powerful strategies to convert both conventional and alternative resources to valuable feedstocks in environmentally friendly and economical processes. By understanding catalytic processes and applying advanced synthetic methods, chemical transformations are optimized by making them faster, cleaner and more sustainable.

The highly interactive master course Advanced Synthesis and Catalysis provides students with a sound foundation to do so by facilitating learning through a discovery-based curriculum. Both practical and theoretical skills are applied to relevant real world problems. The students are trained on a variety of computational and laboratory techniques for developing, characterizing and testing of new catalysts. Personal skills are strengthened in individual training scenarios and hands-on lab courses meet the unique needs of the students.
