Summary

Catalysis lies at the heart of many chemical processes, from living systems to large-scale industrial reactors. By understanding and applying catalysts, we can create faster, cleaner, economical and more sustainable processes. With roughly 85% of all products manufactured involve catalysis somewhere in their production chain, career prospects for graduates with specialist knowledge in catalysis are strong.

This course will provide you with a sound foundation in catalysis theory and its applications. You will be trained to use a range of laboratory equipment and techniques for testing and characterising catalysts. We will explore three branches of catalysis – heterogeneous, homogeneous and biological – and you’ll have the opportunity to specialise in the area that interests you through a major research project.

A selection of current research and projects within the Cardiff Catalysis Institute (CCI) include gold catalysis and exploring the use of biorenewables to transform waste into fuel.
