SummaryCatalysis is an essential technology for a sustainable future as it enables the production of energy carriers and valuablechemicals from renewable energy and non-fossil carbon feedstocks. To cope with fluctuating electricity supply and diversified raw materials, adaptivity is becoming a parameter of every-increasing importance for the development of futurecatalytic systems. New approaches for the design of adaptive catalytic systems are researched at the MPI for Chemical Energy Conversion with a focus on the chemical utilization of hydrogen.
