11th International Symposium: Scientific Bases for the Preparation of Heterogeneous Catalysts – PREPA11

July 6, 2014 – July 11, 2014 all-day
Prof. Eric Gaigneaux

Website: 11th International Symposium: PREPA 11
It has become a tradition that every four years, the Université catholique de Louvain and the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven jointly organize a symposium devoted to the scientific bases for the preparation of heterogeneous catalysts. These meetings bring together researchers from academia and industry and offer a forum for discussions on the chemistry involved in the preparation of industrial heterogeneous catalysts.
We cordially invite all scientists active in the field of heterogeneous catalysis to participate in the 11th International Symposium on Scientific Bases for the Preparation of Heterogeneous Catalysts.

The scientific program will consist of invited lectures, oral and poster presentations.

Contributions are solicited that focus on the aspects of catalyst preparation. Reports on physico-chemical characteristics of catalysts and catalytic performances should be limited to correlations with the preparation parameters.

Papers will be selected by a scientific committee, consisting of representatives from industry of catalysis (manufacturers and users), based on the scientific value of the abstract, novelty and the compliance of the subject to the symposium topics.

Main Topics

  • Innovative approaches in catalyst preparation for specific performances and purposes
  • Advanced preparations of catalysts and supports
  • Key concepts and tools in catalyst preparation
