Dear mailing list users,
on behalf of the organising committee I would like to announce a workshop on catalysis at the Karlsruher synchrotron ANKA, please find attached the programm.
Best regards,
Matthias Bauer


"Shining synchrotron light on catalysts - Needs and opportunities for the future" 

October 8th 2010 in Karlsruhe, Germany

Catalysis is playing a major role in chemical industries considering that more than 90% of all chemical products have seen at least in one step a catalyst. With the challenges which we presently meet in fossil energy resources and CO2-emission, environmental catalysis and pharmaceuticals catalysis is one of the key areas. Rapid catalyst development by a rational approach requires a detailed understanding of their structure, where synchrotron light has significantly contributed in the past and will be even more powerful in the future. This is falling into the new developments also at ANKA with the establishment of a strengthened catalysis focus. During the workshop the needs and opportunities at synchrotron radiation sources will be discussed.
