Laboratory Learning Program 2024 - Sustainable Catalysis (CHE-01)

Research Opportunity Number: CHE-01

Project Title: Sustainable Catalysis

Project Summary: Catalysts are a driver of green and sustainable chemistry and find application in the synthesis of medicines, fuels, fertilizers and materials. This project will focus on the preparation of new catalysts based on earth abundant metals - those that are readily available in the earth's crust - that will have a host of new applications. The summer student will prepare organic molecules en route to new iron, cobalt and nickel catalysts and explore their function.

Student Roles and Responsibilities: Assist in the preparation of new catalysts for sustainable chemistry.

Additional Considerations: Start and end dates are flexible, but the student should be available essentially full-time (at least 35 hours/week)
