It is of interest to gain an atomic-level insight into the nature, strength and location of zeolite acid sites to fathom their reactivity and catalytic behaviour.

Dynamics can render an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) difficult to crystallise, making the development of a commercially relevant process challenging, while also complicating the process of structural characterisation.

In heterogeneous catalysis, it is crucial to be able to control the structure and morphology of nanoparticles as these features are directly tied with the catalytic activity.

The PANACEA Kick-off meeting took place in Lyon on October the 21th and 22th. The meeting was run in hybrid mode due to the travel restrictions connected to the COVID-19 pandemic.
