Developing sustainable electrocatalytic chemical synthesis from captured CO2

Start date: October 2024

Full information

Carbon Dioxide Utilization from Captured Industry Emissions
This studentship, which is part-funded by an industrial partner will explore the use of electrochemical approaches for both carbon dioxide capture and utilization. The successful candidate will work within our interdisciplinary research team to develop novel electrocatalysts/electrode structures and explore the viability of their deployment in real-world scenarios. The project will appeal to students with interests in electrochemistry and catalysis. Experience of these topics is desirable, but not essential. Applications are encouraged from highly motivated candidates who have, or expect to have, at least a 2:1 degree or equivalent in Chemistry. Some teaching duties may be required.

Applications should be made to Professor Alex Cowan.


PhD Studentship at the University of Liverpool, UK

PhD Studentship at College de France, Paris

Solid Catalysts for Electroreduction of CO2 to Muti-Carbon Products

Start date: September- October 2024
Candidates have to hold a master degree and show some competences and interest in electrochemistry, materials science and catalysis. The experimental work will concern synthesis and characterization of solid multimetallic materials, development of low-voltage electrochemical cells and evaluation of the electrocatalytic properties of the syntgesized materials by electrochemical methods (Voltammetry, potentiometry and amperometry) as well as their post-electrolysis characterization.

For further details contact Professor Marc Fontecave.
