Designer Carbon Nanotube Columns for Chemo- and Bio-catalytic Synthesis in Flow

This project exploits carbon nanotube-lined columns for flow chemistry, and seeks to tailor these for specialised catalytic processes in fine chemical synthesis by doping of the nanotubes or immobilising chemo- or enzyme-catalysts. The project work will span Materials and Chemistry and will involve carbon nanomaterial synthesis and modification, catalysis, reaction optimisation and assessment of ‘green chemistry’ metrics.
