Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory

Department of Chemistry

Our research are on both fundamental and applied aspects in Novel Chemistry Materials and Catalysis; Work involves synthesis, testing and characterisation of novel solid state materials for a wide range of applications particularly in the areas of catalysis, sensor and bio-medicine. Uses of well-defined nanomaterials as building blocks for synthesis of functional materials including development of novel core-shell metal nanoparticles of controllable composition, size and morphology as new nanocatalysts; hollow carbon nanotube as nano-scale test tube for separation, storage, magnetic, electronic applications; immobilized biomolecules on nanoparticles as new sensors, etc. In catalysis area, we work on new catalytic techniques for sustainable energy systems (fuel cells catalysts, photocatalytic solar cells, biomasses to fuels, hydrogen storage, cleaner catalytic combustion, carbon dioxide activation, capture, storage and subsequent conversion into useful chemicals/materials (reduction in carbon emissions), etc. As the Head of Wolfson Catalysis Laboratory, I am more than happy to provide you further information if required, please contact me using the details above.
