Diamanta Ibishi

Supervisor: Stian Svelle

Thesis topic: Unidirectional microporous materials as key catalyst components for the direct conversion of CO2 into chemicals

This master project forms part of the larger CASCADE-X effort in the catalysis group, and has as its objective to synthesize and characterize a series of AEL (SAPO-11) zeolite catalysts with different degrees of Si incorporation to generate materials with differing acid site density. The compounds will be further applied in the investigation of their catalytic performance for the conversion of methanol to hydrocarbons.

Hobby: Besides studying natural science, I am interested in athletics, writing, nature, cooking and psychology. I value family and friends in a big deal and love to spend time with them. Due to my broad interests, I frequently attend workshops in both natural science and psychology for the pleasure of learning. My interests are very much reflected in my work choice, and I have jobs which relate to mentoring, teaching, healthcare and fitness.


Bjørn Gading Solemsli

Supervisor: Unni Oslbye

Thesis topic: Catalytic testing and TEM-characterization of MOF-based catalysts

Academic interests: My interests are materials that can be used for heterogeneous catalysis and their structure and how that may affect the catalytic process.
