Providing sustainable catalytic solutions for a rapidly changing world

8th - 9th May 2017

Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor Graham Hutchings FRS, Professor Richard Catlow FRS and Professor Nicholas Turner

Society is facing challenges in providing sources of clean energy, water and sustainable resources. Catalysis can provide solutions to these grand challenges and this meeting will address modern developments in catalysis that address these crucial targets. We will bring together scientists and engineers across the breadth of catalysis (heterogeneous, homogeneous and bio) bridging the disciplines of chemistry engineering and biology.

The schedule of talks and organiser and speaker biographies will be available shortly. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place, and meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions A.

This meeting is intended for researchers in relevant fields.

  • Free to attend
  • Limited places, advanced registration is essential
  • An optional lunch can be purchased at time of registration

Catalysis sustaining society’s future

10th - 11th May 2017

Satellite meeting organised by Professor Graham Hutchings FRS, Professor Richard Catlow FRS and Professor Nicholas Turner.

This satellite meeting will address modern developments in designing improved catalysts for environmental benefit by addressing four questions. (i) “How far can we tailor and control active sites?” (ii) “How generally applicable is the concept of single site catalysis” (iii) “Where can biocatalysts be usefully applied in the future” (iv) “Can precious metal catalysts really be replaced with earth abundant materials?”.

Bringing together scientists across the breadth of catalysis (heterogeneous, homogeneous and bio) bridging the expertise of chemists, engineers, bio-scientists and theoreticians.

UK Catalysis Hub Summer Conference 2017

11-12th July 2017

The UK Catalysis hub runs a Biannual Conference for it members.

The conferences are intended as a forum for the presentation and discussion of Catalytic research.

One aim of the UK Catalysis Hub is to develop the next generation of researchers, to facilitate this aim, on the 11th July 2017 the summer conference will start with a buffet lunch at Milton Hill House, Abingdon before an afternoon of talks.

There will be a poster session and conference dinner at Milton Hill House, Abingdon (limited numbers) and then a further schedule of talks on the morning of the 12th finishing with a buffet lunch.
