My PhD work is integrated within the SynFuels project, a joint initiative between Paul Scherrer Institut and EMPA aimed to develop novel synthetic routes for a sustainable jet fuel production.
My specific focus is the study of suitable zeolite catalysts for the methanol-to-olefins (MTO) conversion as an intermediate step for the final production of hydrocarbons in the jet fuel range. In situ UV-vis and IR spectroscopic analysis are applied to follow the entangled reaction mechanism and olefins evolution.
