Charge compensation of entrapped organic cations in zeolites

Organic Structure Directing Agents (OSDAs) play a central role in synthesis of zeolites. Typically, OSDAs consist in tetraalkylammonium cations that are trapped inside of the voids of zeolites. The positive charge of the occluded cations is compensated i) by the isomorphic substitution of Si atoms by trivalent atoms resulting in…

Methanol to hydrocarbons (MTH) for Net Zero

Methanol to hydrocarbons (MTH) is an important petrochemical process due to its ability to replace conventional fossil fuels (e.g., coal and crude oil) based gasoline, olefins and aromatics production with carbon neutral renewable methanol feedstock, which can be derived from CO2 reduction with H2O. The MTH process can reduce the net…

Research Fellow in Computational Modelling of Heterogeneous Catalysis (fixed term)

Metal Atoms on Surfaces and Interfaces (MASI) is a large-scale multidisciplinary project spearheaded by four UK universities (Nottingham, Cardiff, Cambridge, and Birmingham) simultaneously addressing two grand challenges: sustainable use of metals and low-carbon technologies. The project is motivated by natural (limited resource of critical metals) and anthropogenic (overpopulation, global warming)…
