Prof. Dr. Regina Palkovits

Regina Palkovits is Full Professor for Heterogeneous Catalysis and Chemical Technology at RWTH Aachen University. Research in her group focuses on the development of novel solid catalysts for the efficient utilization of fossil and renewable resources and on process design for the transformation of biomass into value-added chemicals and biofuels.

The main research topics are:

  • Catalyst and process engineering for the efficient use of renewable resources
  • Multiphase catalytic systems for the integration of catalytic transformation and separation
  • Design of novel solid molecular catalysts to bridge homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis
  • Material development for the challenge of energy production and sustainable technologies
