About the course

Catalysis is central in living systems as well as industrial processes. The course covers the basic principles of catalysis, including kinetics and mechanistic models, design of electrocatalytic materials, surface properties and function in heterogeneous catalysis, and reactivity of coordination compounds. Representative examples will be collected from heterogeneous-, homogenous- and bio-catalysis of relevance to renewable energy.
