Target students: Third year undergraduate  students, Chemistry major students.


The course involves an introduction to catalysis (homogeneous and heterogeneous) and the role of catalysts in the given chemical reactions. Catalysis in laboratory and industry scale. Preparation methods of bulk and supported active sites. Efficiency and activity of catalysts. The advanced spectroscopic methods being used in hetergeneous catalysis such as, XAS, UV/Vis, DRIFTS and XPS spectroscopies
