Research areas

  • Pollutants' elimination from flue gases:

NOx (DeNOx, catalytic decomposition of N2O),
volatile organic compounds (catalytic incineration of VOCs),
ammonia (NH3-SCO),
carbon soots (catalytic incineration),

  • Optimization of catalytic synthesis of fuel biocomponents,
  • Catalytic and adsorption methods for elimination of organic and inorganic pollutants from waste waters,
  • Synthesis and functionalization of high surface area silica and aluminosilica materials with uniform porous structure (e.g. 2D zeolites, zeolites with hierarchical porous structure, PILCs, PCHs, MCM-41, MCM-48, SBA-15, MCF, MSU) for catalytic and adsorption applications,
  • Studies of high surface area hydrotalcite originated mixed metal oxide systems for catalytic applications.
