Our current programs
Working on both Government funded research programs and with private companies on bespoke chemistries.
Carbon abatement projects include...
of CO2 to elemental carbon:
Stoichiometric reduction of hot carbon dioxide
using metallic magnesium. This results
in the isolation of carbon and magnesium oxide. Using the thermal energy of the hitherto hot
emission waste, elemental magnesium can be recycled over and over again. Key added value by-products from this process
include hydrogen and chlorine.
Generation of materials
Creation of formic acid from CO2 via transfer hydrogenation:
A novel adaptation of a pericyclic displacement
resulting in the formation of methanoic acid from carbon dioxide and
propan-2-ol. The process is catalytically
driven using a series of 2nd row transition metals and a suitable
organic scaffold acting as a ligand. The
disproportionation of the hydride donor results in the generation of a value
