Research Interests

  • Multiphase chemical reactors
  • Composite magnetic nanoparticles
  • RF and microwave heating
  • Non-thermal plasma
  • Fine chemicals synthesis

Professor Rebrov's current research is at the interface between material nano-engineering and catalytic reactor engineering with a strong focus on the application of nonconventional energy sources, such as microwave, radiofrequency fields and UV light, to activate catalysts and to intensify reaction and transport processes. The research is focused on the understanding and controlling of the interaction of physical transport and reaction processes at all relevant time and length scales in the realization and testing of these chemical reactors for a wide range of applications and processes.
