Heterogenous Oxidation Catalysis in the Liquid Phase
- Development of single‐site catalysts based on metal‐organic frameworks (MOFs) containing well‐defined Co and Fe species within the pores of their framework structures.
- Synthesis of bimetallic Co/Fe oxide catalysts for the same reactions via the controlled thermal decomposition of bimetallic Co/Fe‐containing MOFs.
- Testing and optimization of reaction parameters in catalytic liquid‐phase oxidation reactions of secondary alcohols and cyclic olefins with developed catalyst materials.
- Development of a new in situ cell for the investigation of possible metal leaching during the catalytic reactions by using X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS).
