Sazama Research Group

on Applied Catalysis

The philosophy of our research

Address the serious questions and problems of society that can be answered by new or more efficient catalytic processes. Typically, this concerns the issue of catalysts for reducing environmental pollution (reducing emissions from automobile traffic, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, reducing emissions from industry) and developing catalytic processes for sustainable and more efficient chemical production.

Dr. Petr Sazama

J. Heyrovský Institute of Physical Chemistry of the CAS

The central research theme of the Sazama group is the development of fundamental understanding of the structure and catalytic properties of nanomaterials. The acquired results of the fundamental research are exploited in the development of large scale production of catalysts and catalytic processes.
