Welcome to the Catalysis group at the University of Udine!

Our work is focused on the study of ceria based catalysts in applications ranging from environmental catalysis to electrocatalysis. The above picture is an art piece painted by artist Kerotoo on the wall of our labs. The image is an artistic representation of TEM images of ceria nanorods and nanocubes.
