This project focuses on selective oxidation and electro-oxidation of polyacohol, in particular glycerol, over transition metal surfaces in liquid phase employing density functional theory calculations, microkinetic modeling and Kinetic Monte Carlo. The project aims at identifying key parameters that control activity and selectivity of studied materials which will open the pathway for designing improved catalytic materials
