BBC focus on gold catalysis
15 Gorffennaf 2014
Ground breaking work from Cardiff School of Chemistry has been featured on BBC Wales news (14 July 2014). Researchers at Cardiff Catalysis Institute, based within the School of Chemistry, have been instrumental in pioneering the use of gold as a catalyst for a wide range of chemical transformations and applications. Many people may initially think of gold as being a very inert substance, but once gold is made into nanoparticles it is able to exhibit exceptional behaviour as a catalyst.
