Catalysis is the key to the sustainable development of modern chemical industry, addressing the ever-increasing societal and environmental demands for optimising the use of natural resources, minimising the waste and battling the global warming. Recent development in heterogeneous catalysts explores the unconventional method to activate the catalyst, exemplified by the microwave-assisted catalysis, photocatalysis and non-thermal plasma catalysis, which has shown surprisingly higher efficiency in the challenging reactions (e.g. CO2 conversion) than the conventional thermal-activation.
This one-day event will provide a unique platform for the UK catalysis community, especially the PhD students, PDRAs and ECRs, to share and learn the recent development in the field of unconventional activation of heterogeneous catalysis, as well as networking and stimulating the new ideas for the further development of the field for a wide impact.
