Time: 12:30 - 1:30pm
Speaker: Dr Alberto Roldan Martinez, Cardiff University
Venue: Room 2.40, Bancroft Building

In this Chemistry and Biochemistry seminar, Dr Alberto Roldan Martinez will deliver a talk on 'Hydrogen production and the nanocatalysts resilience'.

Dr Roldan's research is aimed at understanding the dynamism of surface processes that underlie phenomena such as catalysis and corrosion. His group employs a range of computational tools to model physical and chemical properties of these systems regarding the experimental synthetic and working conditions. The use of micro-kinetic models allows them to approach specific conditions including the optimization of the catalyst structure and working conditions improving yields, selectivity of the catalyst as well as controlling sintering effects.

 

This seminar is open to all.
