Project title, type and project number
Scientific project entitled “Nanoengineering of thin layers of semiconductor photocatalysts in a microreactor environment for lignin-based model compounds valorization”. Project number: SONATA BIS 5 nr 2015/18/E/ST5/00306
dr. hab. Inż. Juan Carlos Colmenares, prof. IPC PAS
The goal of this project is the synthesis of novel multicomponent nanophotocatalytic thin layers supported on the internal walls of a fluidic microreactor, the study of their activity in the selective photo-oxidation of lignin-based model molecules and the correlation of their performances with the composition, surface morphology and distribution of the active sites.
