About the Project
This PhD project aims to provide atomic level information of reactive centres in photocatalytic materials through the application of advanced Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectroscopy, to yield detailed reaction mechanisms and kinetics. The project will involve synthesis of nanoparticles, in collaboration with colleagues in Hokkaido University (Japan), and advanced characterisation via multiple spectroscopic techniques (SEM, UV-vis, XPS, EPR).
Candidates should hold or expect to gain a first class degree or a good 2.1 and/or an appropriate Master’s level qualification (or their equivalent).
