The combustion chemistry group is steadily growing since Alexander Konnov took the chair of Professor in combustion physics including combustion chemistry in 2009. Current scientific activities cover fundamental research in combustion of conventional fuels and of bio-fuels (bio-mass, syngas, etc.), dynamics of laminar flames, oxy-fuel combustion, development of predictive models for NOx and other pollutants formation based on detailed reaction mechanisms. These studies always include dedicated experiments and model development. Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of combustion research new PhD students may have background in chemistry, physics or engineering.
