About the Project
In addition to lab-scale and pilot-scale studies of the FTS reaction, you will also seek to make use of the by-products of the reaction, including short- and medium chained organic acids. These are typically disposed of but can be a valuable chemical feedstock when converted by heterogeneous catalytic processes. This is an experimental based project which will involve reaction testing and analysis, using techniques such as GCMS. It is well suited to applicants with a good knowledge of chemical engineering or chemistry.
The chemicals sector underpins UK and global manufacturing. This project will provide the skills necessary to enter a range of roles in those sectors or in the broader sustainability field.
Subject-specific training will be provided on relevant techniques as well as a Doctoral development programme.
Good honours degree in chemistry, chemical engineering or a related subject.
The student will be working as part of a larger research group in a well-resourced lab dedicated to developing sustainable engineering solutions to global challenges. For further details please contact Dr. James McGregor directly via [Email Address Removed]
