Research activities:

Robert Wojcieszak has received his Ph.D. in Physical and Molecular Chemistry from the University of Lorraine, France in 2006. He joined next the Institute of Condensed Matter and Nanosciences at the Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium (post-doc fellowship). In 2013 he was awarded with a FAPESP fellowship at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil where he was working on gold-based nanomaterials synthesis and their use in selective oxidation reactions (group of prof. L. Rossi). Currently he is a CNRS researcher in the VAALBIO group of UCCS laboratory at the University of Lille.

He is involved in the development of new advanced catalysts for biomass transformation. His research is focused especially on the hydrogenation, oxidation and amination of bio-based compounds using heterogeneous and hybrid materials and their combinations under the efficient and novel concept of fully integrated hybrid catalysis.

Main research topics in the field of new materials for sustainable and environmental chemistry:

  • Hybrid catalysis and materials for sustainable processes

  • Oxidation and hydrogenation of platform molecules

  • Integrated Biorefineries and biomass valorization

 

  • Eco-efficient products and processes

  • Multi-component catalysts with tailored properties

  • Metallic and bimetallic nanoparticles

  • Extensive hands-on experience in nanoparticles preparation and surface science
