Catalysis for Fuels – oral abstract deadline 9 May

We’re delighted to present our upcoming Faraday Discussions meeting on Catalysis for Fuels, taking place in Cape Town, South Africa from 24 – 26 January 2017, and covering the following themes:

  • Catalysts for fuels: insights from theory
  • Designing new catalysts for synthetic fuels
  • Hydrocarbon conversion
  • Novel photocatalysts: do they provide a viable option?

Confirmed invited speakers include:

  • Kazunari Domen (University of Tokyo, Japan)
  • Phillip Gibson (Sasol, South Africa)
  • Enrique Iglesia (University of California, Berkeley, USA)
  • Nora de Leeuw (Cardiff University, UK)
  • Can Li (Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, China)
Submit an oral abstract by 9 May for an opportunity to present and discuss your work in Cape Town!

    We hope you will also enjoy these recently published articles, which cover exciting developments in research into the important challenge of using catalysis to produce energy and fuels.
