Understanding the heterogeneous chemical and structural changes that occur in thin metal oxide films when used as catalysts for water splitting to produce hydrogen is critical for the development of more efficient materials.
  Programming and Real-Time Monitoring Light Degradability of Polymers
  Dr H Frisch, Dr B Poad
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic polymers are arguably the class of man-made materials that have most shaped the last century. However, the majority of polymers results from radical polymerization techniques yielding all carbon backbones, which critically prevent their degradation and pose a vital threat to the future of our planet.
