Welcome to

Bao Nguyen Research Group

name

Our group is interested in understanding mechanisms of catalytic processes and improving/optimising the application of these processes in both academia and industry. The research is highly collaborative and focuses on the interdisciplinary interface between Physical/Organic/Process Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. The current research themes in the group include CO2 utilisation in high value chemical manufacture, studies of metal catalysed coupling reactions using state-of-the-art physical and analytical techniques, and applications of synchrotron-based techniques in mechanistic studies of homogeneous catalytic reactions.
