Structure/activity relationships in heterogeneously catalysed selective hydrogenation reactions of relevance to agri-chemical production chains

A recently completed industrially sponsored Ph.D. project, concentrating on the kinetics and hydrodynamics of nitrile hydrogenation, has enabled a catalyst specification to be defined that supports high amine selectivity and extended catalyst lifetimes.  A follow-on Ph.D. project is available for commencement in October 2022 that represents a further collaboration between the industrial partner and the University of Glasgow.  The new project will build on the previous work by developing structure/activity relationships of the principal surface-mediated processes responsible for sustained product yields for a further series of nitrile hydrogenations relevant to large-scale agri-chemical production.
