Andreas Schaefer

Researcher; Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Applied Surface Chemistry, Per-Anders Carlsson Group

Andreas’ research focusses on the study of structure and reactivity/activity of heterogeneous catalysts based on transition metals and (rare earth) oxide materials. Of special interest are reactions involving the conversion of CO2 and CO to useful chemicals like e.g. methanol. Within his research, he is employing x-ray based experiments at synchrotron facilities as well as (time resolved) infrared spectroscopy for operando studies of catalysts at work.
He further conducts experiments on catalytic model systems in ultrahigh vacuum.
