EPR in Inorganic Catalysis

Inorganic Catalysis is a part of the Structural Chemistry Group, Dep. of Chemistry, dealing with Inorganic Catalysis. We concentrate our studies in Vanadium based catalysts. EPR has proven to be a very useful tool, when it comes to dealing with Vanadium(IV)-chemistry in molten salts catalysts.

Examples of our use of Electron Paramagnetic Resonance:

Quenched Vanadyl-sulphate in Pyrosulphate melts
Identification of Deactivation Products in SO2- Oxidation Catalysis
Investigations of Low Temperatur SO2- Oxidation Catalysts
