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 organic synthesis on water, 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.
We have MChem projects in Machine learning/Artificial Intelligence in Chemistry and Green Chemistry for 2019-2020. Please contact Dr Bao Nguyen for details.
