Research Focus – Energy, Environment and Materials

KCC continues on its path to becoming a world-leading catalysis research center with areas of excellence focusing on scientific solutions to technological needs of regional importance and global impact. In alignment with the University's thrusts of energy and environment, KCC's mission will continue to emphasize the promotion of the Kingdom's science, education and industry by targeting the scientific challenges of the 21st century with the 21st century's chemistry approach: "catalysis by design."

The strength of the KCC originates from the diversity of specializations provided by the participating laboratories and their integration into multidisciplinary projects: homogeneous, heterogeneous, photo-, nano-, and bio-catalytic concepts, inorganic, organic, organometallic, supramolecular and polymer chemistry.
