The Nanomaterials and Catalysis Lab is integrated by two research groups based in the University of Cádiz and focused on:

Electron Microscopy

The main goal is to address textural, chemical, nano-analytical and nano-structural characterization of materials based on particulated systems (catalytic, metallic, adsorbent, ceramic, nanoparticles, etc).


We are constantly applying new instrumental and methodological tools in the area of heterogenous catalysis and always are interested in new collaborations with other research groups as well as public or private institutions. For more information, please contact.
