Following completion of this module the student should have an in-depth knowledge of the chemistry behind the use of heterogeneous catalysis and their application in several areas of industrial and "green" chemistry and environmental protection. This will involve an appreciation for the catalytic cycle, the bonding between reagents and catalysts, characterisations of catalytic materials and an understanding of basic catalytic kinetics. Furthermore they will have undertaken a case study of one important class of catalyst i.e. microporous and mesoporous solids.
The students should have an advanced knowledge of the energy states in free and complexed transition and lanthanide metal ions and be able to explain the differences in bonding, magnetism and optical properties of compounds from the two series.
