Catalysis and Green Chemistry

Catalysis and Green chemistry at University of Helsinki

We are CatLab, a research group from University of Helsinki focusing on catalysis and green chemistry. As a part of the Synthesis and analysis research programme, our facilities are located in the Department of Chemistry, at the Kumpula Campus.


We are a part of the Nordic Consortium for CO2 Conversion (NordCO2), a network for Nordic researchers working on chemical CO2 conversion in the Nordic countries. In December 2017 NordForsk granted the center funding through the Nordic University Hub call.

Cover Profile

We were invited for the cover of Chemistry - A European Journal (Chem. Eur. J. 34/2021) with our article Cooperative Ligands in Dissolution of Gold.
