About the Project
The implications of this project are wide ranging, as you will contribute to convert hydrocarbons into a useful chemical synthesis feedstock. Ultimately, we aim to deliver a new manufactory technology for the synthesis of oxygenated hydrocarbons like alcohols or ketones that are essential building blocks and precursors for the manufacture of food additives, drug precursors and fibres.
This project involves the following techniques or methods: heterogeneous catalyst synthesis, XRD, NMR spectroscopy, GC/MS analysis, kinetic studies and catalyst design, molecular modelling. The project may also involve collaborations with external institutions.
**Please note this project is for self-funded students**
The applicant should have or expect to gain at least an upper second class degree, or equivalent overseas qualification, in a relevant subject.
