This research line investigates different heterogeneously catalyzed chemical reactions that are relevant either to chemical industry or to environment. In the first block we have been involved in olefin partial oxidation and the water gas shift reaction while paradigmatic examples of the second block with contributions of our group are DeSOx and NO reduction by CO. Finally, structure, properties and reactivity of supported metal clusters is being investigated from different points of view. In particular, we mention the unexpected and unique reactivity of Au nanoparticles supported on TiC.
