Catalysts in Chemistry

when 20 July 2019 - 3 August 2019
language English
duration 2 weeks
fee GBP 1995

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 Catalysts in Chemistry Summer School, which provides a thorough grounding in both theory and practical skills.

In keeping with our varied research, the course content explores the varied presence and application in the chemistry of the differing types of catalyst and catalytic applications. Ranging from organic, inorganic, spectroscopic and theoretical chemistry, you will gain a thorough understanding of the integral role catalysts play in chemistry.
