We, the researches of AG Rameshan, are interested in catalytic processes on heterogeneous catalyst surfaces.

The ERC project TUCAS started in 2017 and was initially part of our research group „Electrocatalysis at Surfaces“ at the Institute of Materials Chemistry at the Vienna University of Technology. In October 2022, we moved to Leoben, where we are now a part of the Chair for Physical Chemistry at the Montanuniversity Leoben. Specifically, TUCAS deals with perovskite materials, their surfaces, and ways to influence their properties (like stability and activity) by various measures: doping, pre-treatment (in different atmospheres), polarisation, exsolution of nanoparticles…

These perovskite materials are especially interesting, as they show great potential in processes relating to renewable energy production and chemical energy storage.

In 2022, TUCAS+CO2 was approved by the ERC (as Proof of Concept Grant). This extension of our fundamental research project TUCAS aims to extend the results towards industrial applications.

We use a wide range of lab-based and Synchrotron based techniques (in-situ spectroscopies) as well as theoretical simulations to study and characterise the properties of our samples.

March 2023

Dominic’s and Thomas‘ mini-review in was published in Chemical Communications. Congratulations!

The NAP-XPS arrived savely (but still in parts and in boxes) in Leoben.

February 2023

Our NAP-XPS instrument was disassembled and prepared for shipment to Leoben.

December 2022

Flo’s paper in Compounds was published. Congratulations!
Jonathan Rollenitz continues his work with our group and joins our team as new student assistant.

TUCAS Fact of the ... 404—Time range not found

Here, we will regularly present funny and/or interesting facts – on occasion maybe even a dad-joke-y quote (not to name names but probably by Florenz).

TUCAS Fact #22:
The most recent record (we could find) of digits of pi of 100 trillion digit—with the 100-trillionth digit being a zero—was took almost 158 days: Google Cloud developers started their algorithm on October 14th 2022; and it completed on March 21st 2023 (Details can be found here).
Happy Pi Day!

TUCAS is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, grant agreement no. 755744.
