The Liquid Metal Catalysis project is aiming to study the growth of two-dimensional materials on liquid metal catalysts (growth of graphene on molten copper in specific). This is done by developing a unique experimental setup, by which the growth of graphene on molten copper can be studied in situ, at about 1100 °C and under reactive conditions. The experiments are also supported by theoretical simulation.

The project is a collaboration between:

  • Catalysis & Surface Chemistry, Leiden Institute of Chemistry, Leiden University, The Netherlands
  • ID10, European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), France
  • Institute for Nanoscience and Cryogenics (INAC), Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), France
  • Composites and Nanomaterials, Institute of Chemical Engineering Sciences, Foundations for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH), Greece
  • Theoretical Chemistry, Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany
  • Leiden Probe Microscopy (LPM B.V.), The Netherlands
