Welcome to the Multiscale Reaction Engineering (MuRE) group, led by Pedro Castaño, in the KAUST Catalysis Center.
In MuRE, we engineer catalytic reactions by using a systematic multiscale approach, developing advanced reactors and catalysts while modeling the collective process dynamics. We target environmental and waste-valorization processes such as the transformations of small- (carbon dioxide, methane, paraffins, methanol) or big-molecules (refinery residues, crude, biomass, lignin, plastic wastes, used tires) into hydrogen, light olefins, platform chemicals or high-quality fuels.

Our new #publication in @JPhysChem C with Bruce Gates @ucdavis, author of the book which inspired me to do what I do: #catalysis. In the work, we report the pathways+#kinetics to obtain+interconvert #Rh complexes comprised in the cages of #FAU #zeolite – https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.jpcc.9b10291
