Diversity of Catalysis
As the home of the Cardiff Catalysis Institute, the School of Chemistry is a world leader in the teaching and research of catalysis.
Our faculty includes renowned academics specialising in all areas of catalysis. This summer school will give you an insight into the cutting-edge of research on this all-important chemical process.
Our research is focused on finding solutions to current real-world problems, as well as improving catalytic processes already in use. This approach forms the basis of the Diversity of Catalysis Summer School, which provides a through grounding in both theory and practical skills.
In keeping with our varied research, the course content explores the varied presence and application in chemistry of the differing types of catalyst and catalytic applications. Ranging through organic, inorganic, spectroscopic and theoretical chemistry, you will gain a thorough understanding of the integral role catalysts play in chemistry.
Teaching will includes hands-on sessions covering organic synthesis, molecular modelling, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, spectroscopy, dynamics and characterisation.
