UK Catalysis Hub


MChem and MRes Opportunities

 The UK catalysis Hub has secured some funding from External sources to offer in support of Masters project placements to spend their project at the Catalysis Hub at Harrell 

WE accept applications for these opportunities with the university support and can  

  • host the student for the duration of the  projects
  • provide day to day supervision 
  • offer up to £6000  for travel, accommodation and subsistence of the project (typically 6 months  but longer projects could be accommodated with matched funding from elsewhere)
  • offer opportunists to attend hub conferences and present posters 
  • opportunists to attend synchrotron on neutron beamtimes where relevant

Past Projects 

the UK catalysis hub has hosted 3  very success projects so far 

  •  The Development of Pt-based electro-catalysts for direct alcohol fuel cells (DAFCs)
  • Design and Stabilisation of a High Area Iron Molybdate Surface for the Selective Oxidation of Methanol to Formaldehyde
  • Mechanochemical Routes to Molybdate Catalysts
