THOMAS YOUNG CENTRE
THE LONDON CENTRE FOR THE THEORY AND SIMULATION OF MATERIALS
The research groups of the Thomas Young Centre frequently publish important advances that are of interest to a wide multi-disciplinary audience. The items on our "Science Highlights" pages are short summaries of some of these advances, usually based on publications in high-impact journals.
Recent experiments demonstrate the superior activity of Co-decorated MoS2 materials towards the removal of oxygen from organic molecules, a reaction of interest in converting biomass to hydrocarbon fuels. TYC researchers elucidate the effect of Co doping on these materials.
Researchers have characterized each chemical reaction step that results in the reduction of oxygen by hydrogenase, reports Nature Chemistry.
The TYC@Imperial was successfully awarded the EPSRC Institutional Sponsorship 2015. As part of the award we offered the TYC PDRA Outgoing Visit Prize scheme opportunities to Post-Doctoral Research Associates (PDRAs) within the TYC.
Dr Anne Guilbert, Department of Physics, ICL was one of the winners.
TYC Researchers have discovered a material that could compensate for the damaging expansion that takes place when electronic components are heated.
