Dr Tom Hasell
University of Liverpool
Tom’s research focuses on porous materials - these are permeable, high surface area materials with applications in gas storage, catalysis, and filtration. There has been considerable interest in porous materials over the last ten years, and metal-organic frameworks and porous polymers with incredible properties have been reported. However, many of these new materials are limited in application due to the high cost of production. Tom’s aim is to develop new porous materials from inorganic waste and other low cost or renewable resources. The target is to produce materials with superior properties, but at a cost that makes them useful for widespread practical applications, especially filtration of toxic pollutants from water and air flows.
