Prof. Elad Gross opened his lab in 2014. We are a physical chemistry group. Our group aims at elucidating the mechanisms that governs catalytic processes in order to prepare highly controllable catalysts suited for energy-needs of the 21st century society. In order to uncover the full potential of heterogeneous catalysis for energy applications, our research focuses on surface analysis of catalytic systems via high resolution nano spectroscopy. Elad gross's lab is part of the chemistry institute at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel.
