Research Statement

Recent experimental and computational work suggests that external surfaces and grain boundaries in zeolite-based catalysts might play a significant role on diffusion and reaction in such catalysts, affecting yields and, possibly, product distributions. Synthesis and detailed characterisation efforts, using appropriate reactions (such as alkylation and isomerization) will be carried out to investigate these effects, and see how they can be either avoided or exploited.
