  Heterogeneous Catalyst Design, Synthesis and Application for Diverse Organic Transformations
  Prof P A Wright, Prof M Clarke
Application Deadline: 1 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) have great potential within heterogeneous catalysis for fine chemicals synthesis, which derives from their high and controllable porosity and their great chemical versatility.
  Characterisation and design of heterogeneous catalysts for the petrochemical industry
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of novel catalysts for selective oxidation reactions is an area of decisive importance for both industry and academia.
  Development and synthesis of zeolites for the conversion of sugars to biofuels and environmental applications
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A promising strategy to replace non-renewable fuel sources, as raw material for energy applications, is to convert renewable biomass into transportation fuels and value-added chemicals.
  Computation-led materials design for heterogeneous catalytic applications
  Dr A Logsdail
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computation-led materials design for heterogeneous catalytic applications. PhD Supervisor. Dr. Andrew J. Logsdail http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/people/view/481607-logsdail-andrew.
  Biomass conversion into platform chemicals for a future biorefinery
  Dr V Degirmenci, Dr A Jones
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biomass can be either purposefully grown through energy crops (e.g. miscanthus, switchgrass) or produced in large amounts as unwanted organic matter once edible components are collected.
  Application of non-thermal plasma-assisted heterogeneous catalysis for the upgrading of methane
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, plasma-catalysis has emerged as a promising technology to improve the performance of existing catalytic processes.
  Catalytic upgrading of C1 compounds
  Dr C Hammond
Application Deadline: 1 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. C1 compounds such as CO2 and CH4 are increasingly important building blocks for the chemical industry. Yet, methods of converting these abundant compounds into useful chemicals and fuels are hampered by several practical, technical, and economic challenges.
  Enabling synthesis of fine chemicals through heterogenized catalysis
  Research Group: Process Development and Integration
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalysts are substances that can speed up chemical reactions and/or increase reaction selectivity without consuming themselves. Relative to non-catalytic processes, catalysed reactions perform through more energy efficient routes, in which reactants are able to be used more efficiently.
  Additive manufacturing biodiesel production nanocatalysts
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr P Pimenidou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biodiesel is currently produced by transesterification of oils and fats by using a homogeneous catalyst.
  Conversion of waste plastics to useful chemicals, fuel and energy - LEVERHULME
  Dr W Afzal, Dr I Graca
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The remarkable properties of plastics make them the most commonly used modern materials since early twentieth century. Every year several hundreds of millions of tons of plastics are produced globally.
  Digitizing catalysis
  Dr N Cherkasov
Application Deadline: 30 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to develop novel methods to synthesise and test heterogeneous catalysts without human intervention.
  Catalytic production of Hydrogen from waste: Utilising nanostructure catalysts
  Dr S Kondrat
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference. CM/SK-Un1/2019. School. School of Science. Location. Loughborough. UK/EU Fee band. Research Band 2 Laboratory Based (£TBC).
  Two-dimensional layered materials as catalysts for fine chemical production
  Research Group: Process Development and Integration
  Dr C D'Agostino, Prof R Raveendran Nair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalysts are substances that can speed up chemical reactions and/or increase reaction selectivity without consuming themselves. Relative to non-catalytic processes, catalysed reactions perform through more energy efficient routes, in which reactants are able to be used more efficiently.
  Photocatalytic solar energy conversion
  Dr R E Douthwaite
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a clear need to develop processes that minimise the consumption of limited energy resources and reduce waste detrimental to the environment.
  Biomass-derived oils catalytic cracking in existing refinery processes
  Dr I Graca, Dr A McCue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The partial replacement of crude oil by renewable sources to produce high quality transportation fuels is a timely and interesting topic.
