Cardiff University has established the Cardiff Catalysis Institute (CCI) within the School of Chemistry. This new initiative has been supported directly by the University with financial support of over £2.3M. The aim is to establish a centre of excellence for catalysis within the UK that builds upon the current strengths in research at Cardiff. Chemistry at Cardiff already has excellence in heterogeneous catalysis, homogeneous catalysis and biocatalysis and the aim is to bring these together within a single institute so that they can grow and provide the focal point for interdisciplinary interactions within Cardiff and externally with academia and industry.
