They investigate both real and model catalyst systems using a battery of analytical techniques.​<br/></span></p><h3>​Biography</h3><p><span class="st">Professor Gleaves is the Director of the Heterogeneous Kinetics and Particle Chemistry Laboratory at Washington University in St. Louis, and has been involved in heterogeneous catalysis research for twenty-nine years including thirteen years of industrial research. <br/><br/>His areas of expertise include heterogeneous selective oxidation, and the development of novel transient response techniques to study gas-solid catalytic reactions. Professor Gleaves is a co-inventor of the TAP reactor system and developed the commercial TAP reactor system, the TAP high-pressure reactor system, and is the inventor of the TAP-2 reactor system. There are currently 18 TAP reactor systems, designed and/or built by Professor Gleaves operating in academic and industrial laboratories throughout the world.</span></p><img alt="" src="/Profiles/ResearchImages/shield_red.jpg?RenditionID=13" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>314-935-4159<br/><a href="mailto:klatu_002@wustl.edu">klatu_002@wustl.edu</a><br/>Brauer Hall, Room 1007<br/></p>
