PhD studentship available in Neutron Spectroscopy of Surface Intermediates on Nanoporous Metal Catalysts for H2 Storage Technologies

27 Jun 2019

Project Description In the future, the availability of abundant low carbon hydrogen will be crucial for meeting the worlds’ energy needs, while reducing carbon emissions. As direct storage of hydrogen is difficult, alternative hydrogen carriers are required, such as liquid fuels or metal hydrides. The formation of the storage compounds, their decomposition to generate hydrogen…

PhD in Novel catalytic materials for cascade chemical transformations – University of Manchester & UK Catalysis Hub at Harwell

21 Jun 2019

Project Description The chemical industry is highly reliant on heterogeneous catalysis, underpinning 90% of all global chemical production, with the UK a key contributor to the development of catalytic materials and processes. One-pot cascade reactions are step-wise chemical transformations where the product from the first reaction becomes the substrate for the next step, and so…

PhD position available in Combined modulation excitation neutron and X-ray methods to understand catalytic systems at Harwell Campus

18 Jun 2019

Project Description A longstanding challenge in liquid phase chemical science, is understanding the evolution of atomic and molecular structure of catalytically active sites during chemical reaction processes. To date, traditional experimental probes of liquid structure, such as neutron scattering and X-ray absorption spectroscopy, have largely been limited in their ability to answer many of the…
