Catalysis and Reaction Engineering

Research is underway on scientific understanding of catalytic phenomena relevant to current and future industrial processes.

Homogeneous, heterogeneous and biocatalytic processes are being studied. Research projects cover a wide range of topics including:

  • One step synthesis of phenol using catalytic hydroxylation of benzene
  • Synthesis and characterisation of carbon molecular sieve catalysts
  • Surface disinfection by UV and cold atmospheric plasmas
  • UV hormesis in fresh produce
  • Photoreactor design
  • Photocatalysis in water and wastewater treatment
  • Reactive distillation
  • Optimisation of hydrogen peroxide vapour decontamination process
