Another successful UK / Japan collaboration

Posted: December 3, 2013 in Uncategorized

The jelly baby army is back: the latest in a series of papers resulting from a collaboration with Zoe Schnepp and researchers from NIMS and SPring-8 in Japan has been published in Chemical Communications.

The paper, which is in the “2014 emerging investigators” issue and is entitled “A family of oxide/carbide/carbon and oxide/nitride/carbon nanocomposites”, sets out a powerful and versatile method to produce phase separated materials from abundant and inexpensive precursors. The phases are separated, yet highly interspersed and therefore possess high active surface areas, as demonstrated by an enhanced catalytic activity per gram. While these materials have yet to be fully optimised, they clearly provide a cost-effective and sustainable alternative to existing multi-step routes. Without a doubt, this work marks Zoe out as one of the UK’s leading emerging academics.  

  1. Absolutely, it is very interesting work that is going on over there, and I’m very much looking forward to see what that topic will bring in 2014! Fantastic work!
