UK Catalysis Hub
The UK Catalysis Hub is Consortia of universities involved in Catalysis research lead by Cardiff, Bath and Manchester. The hub has a range of Projects around the UK. Our focus is on developing catalytic processes for more effective use of water and energy, waste minimisation, and material reuse and reduction in gaseous emissions.
To establish a world-leading, comprehensive and coordinated programme of catalytic science in the UK.
To develop new knowledge and promote innovation in and translation of catalytic science and technology.
Enabling the UK to regain and retain its world leading position in catalysis.

Research Complex at Harwell
The UK Catalysis Hub has a physical centre at the Research complex at Harwell

The UK Catalysis Hub is currently made up of 5 active interacting themes:
Interaction with the Catalysis Hub
Interaction with the wider community
The UK Catalysis Hub is an open community to promote and strengthen UK catalysis research and it welcomes interaction with the wider catalysis Community.
Please contact the project coordinator for more information about current Hub activities, conferences and opportunities.
The Hub has been highly productive scientifically. In its 4 years of operation Hub science has led to 172 research outputs (which is anticipated to double by the end of the current grants) across heterogeneous, homogeneous biocatalysis and engineering including high impact papers in Science, Nature, Nature Chemistry, ACS Catalysis, Chem Mater, Angewandte Chemie, and Chemical Reviews. The Hub has also, as noted led a special issue of PCCP on neutrons scattering and catalysis and a book (Modern developments in Catalysis, Imperial College Press) largely written by early career Hub scientists.
