NWO-VICI grant awarded to Dr. Petra E. de Jongh
Petra de Jongh received a NWO-VICI grant for her proposal “Stability of Supported Nanoparticles for Sustainable Catalysis”. The growth of nanoparticles into larger crystallites is a major cause for the deactivation of functional materials operating under dynamic conditions. This project will explore the mechanism of particle growth and the factors that govern it. Understanding and controlling particle growth is an important step towards realizing the potential of support nanoparticles for sustainable catalysis.
