General
Kondarides D.
Chemical Engineering
Research Activity
 
Research interests and activities are focused in the fields of Heterogeneous Catalysis and Photocatalysis and, in particular, materials synthesis and characterization, catalyst development and evaluation, and investigation of reaction kinetics and mechanisms.

In the field of Heterogeneous Catalysis, current research activities are focused on:
- Development of water-gas shift (WGS) catalysts for fuel cell applications
- Development of selective methanation catalysts for the removal of CO contained in reformate gas streams for fuel cell applications.

Primary goals in the field of Photocatalysis are:
- Photocatalytic processes for the production of hydrogen from water cleavage,
- Photocatalytic treatment of wastewater streams containing non-biodegradable organic compounds.
