Catalysis and Green Chemistry
We are CatLab, a research group from University of Helsinki focusing on catalysis and green chemistry. As a part of the Synthesis and analysis research programme, our facilities are located in the Department of Chemistry, at the Kumpula Campus.
Our research focuses on the investigation of novel catalytic systems and/-or processes for small molecule activation (hydrogen, carbon...
CatLab currently consists of Prof. Timo Repo, Academy Research Fellow Petra Vasko, postdoctoral researchers, doctoral students, and...
We are a part of the Nordic Consortium for CO2 Conversion (NordCO2), a network for Nordic researchers working on chemical CO2 conversion in the Nordic countries. In December 2017 NordForsk granted the center funding through the Nordic University Hub call.
We were invited for the cover of Chemistry - A European Journal (Chem. Eur. J. 34/2021) with our article Cooperative Ligands in Dissolution of Gold.
