Functional Catalytic Surfaces for Environmental Sustainability

  title={Functional Catalytic Surfaces for Environmental Sustainability},
  author={M. Wilson},
Functional surfaces are of crucial importance to both fundamental and applied science. Many phenomena are driven by the properties of interfaces: catalysis, corrosion and adhesion to name a few. These properties can be modified using surface functionalisation, which in this thesis is applied to three areas of environmental concern: sustainable catalytic carbon-carbon coupling, atmospheric CO2 sequestration and photocatalytic water purification. Chapter 1 provides an introduction to these three… Expand
