About the Project
The project aims to study the effect of adsorption onto the catalyst activity and selectivity in several model reactions such as semi-hydrogenation over platinum-group catalysts.
This multidisciplinary project focuses on heterogeneous catalysis and understanding of the reaction mechanisms. You will collaborate with computational chemistry groups at the University of Lincoln, University College London, and Catalysis Hub as well as industrial end-users to gain valuable mechanistic insights relevant to the industry. It is an opportunity, if desired, to acquire industrial experience and establish strong links with industrial leaders.
The PhD at the School of Engineering, Warwick University, offers an effective mix of academic and practical application. Warwick’s School of Engineering, ranked 3rd by the REF 2014, has expertly designed this programme with quality research-led teaching at its forefront. Gain valuable research skills and knowledge with specialist guidance at the University of Warwick. The university is ranked 9th in the UK, 62nd in the world
