• Synthesis of porous materials (carbon-based materials and metal-organic frameworks, among others) to be used as adsorbents, catalysts or catalyst supports
  • Preparation of metal catalysts based in the use of partially reducible oxides as supports and promoters
  • Synthesis of materials to be used for hydrogen and methane storage at high pressures
  • Synthesis of materials for selective sequestration of CO2
  • Preparation of (photo)catalysts for clean energy processes, such as the production of hydrogen and/or synthesis gas streams from biomass-derived compounds (ethanol, glycerol, etc.,)
  • Purification of such streams by low-temperature water-gas shift and preferential CO oxidation
  • Transformation of biomass-derived platform compounds into fuels and chemicals
