Professor Graham Hutchings, of the Cardiff Catalysis
Institute, said: "Our science has major implications for preservation of natural gas reserves as fossil fuel stocks dwindle across the world."
Following the successful tests at UC Berkeley, the synthesis of the nanoparticles and their potential application in catalysis
is being further evaluated in BASF laboratories in Ludwigshafen, Germany.
Described as the 'Holy Grail' of chemical catalysis
, the process could provide a clean and efficient way of using the Earth's enormous reserves of methane which are currently largely wasted and burned away into the atmosphere.
"Our study provides the groundwork for a simple technology that opens up exciting opportunities," said Dr Camp, who has been exploring sugar-powered catalysis
for the last six years.
Currently, a jointly financed international team of eight doctorate-level scientists, one engineer, and a laboratory manager are working to develop new homogeneous catalysis
hte is a leading high throughput experimentation company that provides a valuable upside to heterogeneous catalysis
and enables fast-track R&D.
Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (Sabic), a global leader in petrochemicals, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Germany-based hte to establish a satellite laboratory for high throughput experimentation to increase its research and development (R&D) efficiency.hte is a leading high throughput experimentation company that provides a valuable upside to heterogeneous catalysis
