Centre for Catalytic Science secures EPSRC equipment funding

The Centre for Catalytic Science, led by Prof. Richard Catlow, has secured £675, 000 funding for equipment to be based at RCaH. Catalysts speed up chemical reactions, and are a key part of many industrial processes that are critical to the UK economy. This equipment will strengthen the group’s position as a major centre for catalysis in the UK and help forge stronger partnerships with the other world-leading facilities on the Harwell Oxford campus. The new equipment upgrades our capacity to monitor chemical reactions and analyse their products, including the ability to study catalytic processes in situ as they happen using the Diamond Light Source.
