We had the pleasure of welcoming Prof. Bert M. Weckhuysen for two tutorial lectures held in hybrid mode. In part 1, Prof. Weckhuysen led us through the history, social network of the community, trends and practical aspects of operando spectroscopy of catalysts.
In part 2, he discussed cell design suggestions, and advances towards capturing molecular movies of real-life catalysts. We thank Prof. Weckhuysen for the insightful lectures, the group of Prof. Christophe Copéret for organizing, and all attendees for joining us! You can find the lecture recordings on our YouTube channel: part 1 and part 2.
Prof. Bert M. Weckhuysen is a full professor at Utrecht University, where his group focuses on the development of structure-activity relationships and expert systems in the field of heterogeneous catalysis and materials science. His research group places special emphasis on the development and use of advanced in situ characterization techniques. He is currently a visiting professor in Prof. Christophe Copéret’s group at the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences at ETH Zurich, and member of the NCCR Catalysis International Advisory Board.
