New project on novel nano-catalysts for CO_2 conversion

A new EPSRC funded project has just been announced, led by Professor Nora de Leeuw, UCL Chemistry. To quote from the grant proposal, we propose to use a robust combination of state-of-the-art computation and experiment in a grand challenge to design, synthesise, test, characterise, evaluate and produce for scale-up novel iron-nickel sulfide nano-catalysts for the activation and chemical modification of CO2. The design of the (Ni,Fe)S nano-particles is inspired by the active sites in modern biological systems, which are tailored to the complex redox processes in the conversion of CO2 to biomass. This is a completely new area for me so I am understandably quite excited!
