This satellite meeting will address modern developments in designing improved catalysts for environmental benefit by addressing four questions. (i) "How far can we tailor and control active sites?" (ii) "How generally applicable is the concept of single site catalysis" (iii) "Where can biocatalysts be usefully applied in the future” (iv) “Can precious metal catalysts really be replaced with earth abundant materials?”. We will bring together scientists across the breadth of catalysis (heterogeneous, homogeneous and bio) bridging the expertise of chemists, engineers, bio-scientists and theoreticians.
The schedule of talks and organiser and speaker biographies is available below. Recorded audio of the discussion leader comments are also available below.
Prior to this meeting there was a related discussion meeting 'Providing sustainable catalytic solutions for a rapidly changing world' held at the Royal Society, London on 8–9 May 2017.
