This project is part of a 4-year Dual PhD degree programme between the National Tsing Hua University (Taiwan) and the University of Liverpool (England). As part of the NTHU-UoL Dual PhD Award students are in the unique position of being able to gain 2 PhD awards at the end of their degree from two internationally recognised world-leading Universities.
The aim of this dual PhD degree project is to develop a novel plasma-catalytic process for the conversion of CO2 into higher value fuels and chemicals under ambient conditions. The project will focus on the design and development of novel nanomaterials (e.g., single nanoparticle catalysts) for plasma-enhanced catalytic conversion of CO2. Ex-situ and in-situ catalyst characterisation, plasma diagnostics combined with DFT calculations will be used to elucidate the possible reactions in the complex plasma-catalytic reaction. The project will bring researchers from both universities with complementary expertise in plasma chemistry, plasma catalysis, catalyst design, nanomaterial fabrication and computational catalysis to address the key energy challenges related to social and economic need.
