 Project objective

The hydrosilylation of alkenes represents one of the largest applications of homogeneous catalysis on an industrial scale, and currently platinum-based catalysts are used in the industries which are expensive. Although homogeneous Earth abundant metal catalysts have been developed, they are not suitable for large-scale industrial applications. Hence, I will develop novel, inexpensive, and Earth-Abundant supported base metal nano-catalysts for the hydrosilylation of alkenes to produce linear alkylsilanes including Si-polymers, which are important products in the chemicals, materials, and pharmaceutical industries. The proposed catalysts are heterogeneous, easily separable from the reaction mixture, and reusable. To achieve this aim, supported Fe, Co, Ni and Mn nano-catalysts will be prepared, characterized, and tested for catalysis. Priority will be given to iron-based catalysts. The most effective nano-catalysts will be applied to the production of silicon-polymers/materials. Altogether, the acquired knowledge from this research project will help the scientific and chemical community to design cheap nano-catalysts for hydrosilylation. This project will be carried out in Laboratory of Inorganic Synthesis and Catalysis (LSCI) at EPFL under the supervision of Prof. Xile Hu. This project will allow me to develop my knowledge and skills in the field of nanomaterials and heterogeneous catalysis in order to enhance my future as an independent researcher in the area of catalysis for advanced organic synthesis and energy applications.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "NEACHA" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email (fabio@fabiodisconzi.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
