The industrial importance of zeolites in fields such as catalysis, molecular sieving and decontamination technologies is well established, with significant commercial potential in controlled release technologies for the agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries.
Populations in low resource settings need easy access to continued healthcare and medical treatments and there are many contributing factors as to why there is an imbalance when it comes to demand and accessibility.
The development of nanomaterial catalysts to reduce the emissions in engine exhaust fumes is critical for a sustainable future. New catalysts are needed which are capable of working over a wider range of temperatures while minimising precious metal usage.
