13th International Symposium on “Scientific Bases for the Preparation of Heterogeneous Catalysts” (PREPA13)

The event covers the scientific bases for the preparation of heterogeneous catalysts. It brings together researchers from academia and industry and offers a forum for discussions on the chemistry involved in the preparation of industrial heterogeneous catalysts. Contributions focusing on all aspects of catalyst preparation are welcome. Reports on physico-chemical characteristics of catalysts and catalytic performances should be limited to correlations with the preparation parameters.
