Catalysis for the 21st Century

Catalysis has become the heart of our modern chemical industry. It ensures more efficient use of finite natural resources, it helps prevent waste and air pollution and it makes industry safer.
Since 1999 the Dutch National Research School Combination Catalysis Controlled by Chemical Design (NRSC-Catalysis) has been conducting a highly innovative research program. It brought together scientists from various key disciplines at nine Dutch universities, in a long-term effort to extend the boundaries of our knowledge. Many fundamental and practical barriers have been surmounted thanks to the intensification of research.
