Dr Ceri Hammond
Catalysis is a key enabling technology for energy production, chemical manufacture, and environmental remediation, with over 90% of industrial processes involving at least one catalyst. My research primarily focuses on the development of (new) chemical processes that are catalysed by solids, although my team are possess an increasing interest in the areas of (nano-)therapeutic agent design.
The three main strands of my research are (1) the development of porous and/or nanoparticulate materials as heterogeneous catalysts and nano-therapeutic agents, (2) advanced mechanistic studies of catalytic systems through kinetic analysis and in situ spectroscopic study, and (3) the intensification of catalytic processes. My research is interdisciplinary, combining several aspects of chemistry, chemical engineering and material science.
