Using catalysis of metals that are abundant in the earth, like iron, cobalt and nickel, is key in the sustainability challenges of the 21st century.

Quality of life in today's society rests on certain rare elements in the periodic table. Research from the Chirik group focuses on catalysis of metals abundant in the earth, like iron, cobalt and nickel. The environmental footprint of these elements is better than that of precious materials. The iron and nickel catalysts developed by Chirik are more active and selective than the platinum catalysts standard in industry, while cobalt catalysts for asymmetrical hydrogenation of alkenes are more enantioselective than rhodium catalysts already in use.
This is Eni's international competition for applied energy research, launched in 2007 to find the best studies into efficiency, sustainability and environmental protection. Every year it involves the most important scientific institutions in the world and Eni's own laboratories.
