Catalysis science is underpinned by billion-pound facilities and experts across the UK.

Located in Oxfordshire, these institutions provide state-of-the-art instruments for researchers worldwide to use for free.

In their bid to accelerate the development and adoption of catalysts for an oil-free future, the SlowCat research team are supported by the following organisations.
