EPSRC CDT in sustainable chemistry research falls under three broad research themes.

AI Designed Catalysis

AI Designed Catalysis

Catalytic formation of C-H, C-C and C-Heteratom bonds is the invisible engine that drives formation of the molecules our society needs.

Sustainable Gelators

Sustainable Gelators

Gelators are an important class of molecules that are used as additives to modify rheological performance in materials ranging from mechanical lubricants, film forming polymers and food.

Late Stage Functionalisation

Late Stage Functionalisation

Late stage functionalisation of complex molecules is increasingly important for producing compound libraries to search for optimal function.

Towards Circular Processing

Towards Circular Processing

There is a pressing need for society to increase the level of recycling of materials and chemical based products.
