Jahrestreffen Deutscher Katalytiker

The 53rd Edition of the German Catalysis Meeting will take place from 11th-13th March 2020

  • One of Europe's most important annual catalysis events
  • Over 600 experts from academia and industry
  • A fantastic platform for young and experienced catalysis scientists to discuss the future challenges in catalysis.

Supporting your nanoparticles

VSPARTICLE would like to introduce the latest member to the VSP family, the VSP Powder Coater (VSP-PC). Combining the VSP-G1 with the VSP-PC brings us one step closer to tailoring supported nanoparticle catalysts. We are currently optimizing and validating the VSP-PC specifications to the demands of the catalysis community.  

Pre-production models will be made available for demonstrations and beta-testing in Summer 2020. Are you interested in a demonstration or would you like to be a beta-tester, we are looking for enthusiastic materials pioneers who are looking to ignite a spark into their research!

SHINERS for the (low) masses

VSPARTICLE are proud to highlight the first publication within the field of heterogeneous catalysis to employ spark ablation as a synthetic route. A recent publication from the Weckhuysen Research group, in collaboration with VSPARTICLE, showcased the advantages of spark ablation over conventional “wet” synthesis techniques for in situ Shell-Isolated Nanoparticle-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SHINERS) studies.

While conventional impregnation and colloidal synthesis routes were not suitable to prepare low transition-metal catalysts, spark ablation successfully deposited Ni nanoparticles on Au@SiO2 to produce catalytically active materials for in situ SHINERS studies. We see this as a significant achievement within SHINERS research that opens up the field beyond studying precious-metal based systems with SHINERS. This work showcased spark ablation as a new and promising technique to synthesize low transition-metal catalysts an study their surfaces under reaction conditions.

How many new catalysts can you screen in one day?

VSPARTICLE believes that researchers should focus on screening new catalyst instead of developing new synthesis methods. Our mission is to enable researchers to screen millions of new catalysts in the next decade. We believe this is necessary to really enable the energy transition and CO2 utilization. Find out at our booth how we aim to do this.

High-throughput catalysis research

To accelerate the energy transition, we need to test as many catalysts as possible.
