Distinguished Seminar: ‘Molecular Sieves: versatile materials for catalysts design’


Molecular Sieves are solids with defined porosity and with the capacity of differentiating molecules through their dimensions and geometries. They can be used as catalysts for several kinds of reactions, and also for separation and adsorption processes.  In this talk we present the research lines of LABPEMOL (Laboratory of Molecular Sieves at UFRN – Brazil) and some results describing different materials that can be obtained with different porosities for application in catalysis. Also, we describe the versatile of several materials as Zeolites, mesoporous materials, layer materials, and hierarchical materials.

Speaker:  Prof. Sibele Pergher
