Research in Sustainable Materials Chemistry


In our recent EU project called ‘SusNano‘ we have been working towards the sustainable synthesis of nanocomposites. We initially aimed this towards the synthesis of WC/TiO2 nanocomposites but we have branched out into the more general synthesis of metal carbides for catalysis. For more information on some of our individual projects and advances that we have been able to achieve using our SusNano funding click on the links below:

1. Metal carbide nanoparticles

2. Mechanisms of metal carbide synthesis from biopolymers

3. Porous graphitic carbon nitride

4. Carbons from biomass
