Heterogeneous catalysis is a key enabler of the chemical industry from refinery to pharmaceuticals. The sectors within which this process has applications includes the pharmaceutical, research and commercial product development, manufacturing and sustainable energy sectors (such as Biodiesel). This programme is designed to give students the practical skills to undertake independent research in heterogeneous catalysis and to supply a thorough theoretical understanding of industrial heterogeneous catalysis. Previous knowledge of catalysis is not required. WHY THIS PROGRAMME
- Research at the School of Chemistry has developed and grown over the years. Our Heter-ogeneous Catalysis Section has some of the best-equipped labs in the UK, attracting industrial support from companies such as: Johnson Matthey, BP, Syngenta, SABIC, Saudi Aramco, Huntsman, Sasol, Invista & Innospec.
- We have research programmes covering: new catalytic materials, petrochemicals, fine chemicals, energy, fuels and catalyst deactivation.
