Welcome to Catalytic Reaction Engineering (CRE) Lab, IIT Delhi


CRE Research Group objective is to develop novel and transformative catalytic technologies that enable a sustainable energy economy. Accordingly, synthesis, characterization and application of both heterogeneous and homogenous catalysts are undertaken for fundamental studies and for the development of industrially relevant processes. To attain these objectives, state of art catalysts synthesis units such as batch reactors, deep coater, microwave synthesis units, ultrasonication synthesis units etc and characterization units such as physisorption unit, chemisorption unit, TGA, FTIR, DRIFT, MP-AES, and acid metal digestion system etc are available in the CRE lab besides several other instruments such as XRD, SEM, TEM, EDX, HR-TEM, Raman spectroscopy and many others available in the institute. Moreover, state of art catalyst testing facilities such as Parr high pressure batch reactor, Anton Paar high pressure microwave reactors, and several continuous reactors are available in the lab. Furthermore, CRE lab is equipped with state of art product characterization tools such as HPLC, UV, GC-MS, GC-FID and GC-TCD.

Some of the major current catalytic research areas are: Coal to Methanol and DME, CO2 Capture and Conversion, Crude oil to Chemicals, Biomass Valorisation, Natural Gas Decomposition to Hydrogen and CNTs, Plastic Waste conversion, and E-waste management.
