Catalysis Award for Bert Weckhuysen
Professor Bert Weckhuysen, Utrecht University, The Netherlands, has received the International Catalysis Award of the International Association of Catalysis Societies (IACS)for his pioneering development and use of spectroscopic methods to investigate heterogeneous catalysts at the micrometer and nanometer scale during their activation and function.
The award was presented at the 15th International Congress on Catalysis (ICC 2012) in Munich, Germany, where Weckhuysen delivered an award lecture called “Cataysis Live and Up Close: Heterogeneities in Space and Time”. He began by saying that catalyst researchers are like detectives, always searching for who did it.
