Research, both basic and applied, is carried out at the ICP within quite varied fields and kinds of catalysis, especially of heterogeneous and enzymatic types; it is worth remarking the synergy that exists between these two latter specialties as one of the singular features of ICP. As indicated in its current Action Plan, the R&D of the ICP is centred in three wide thematic lines addressing fundamental needs of society and industry, which are complemented by a set of diverse horizontal actions; all of them are developed in specific sub-lines where the different projects and contracts are implemented.


Production and transformation of energy resources

Selective Synthesis

Highly selective chemical processes and green chemistry

Environment Protection

Elimination of pollutants and desinfection
