We are not only committed to pioneering research, but also to outreach activities, education, and fostering engagement with science in the wider community. Our collective research has received widespread recognition, securing substantial funding and prestigious awards. We are proud of the work we do, the contributions we make, and the impacts we are driving in our fields.
Valeska inspired our tradition - we always participate in STEM for BRITAIN!
..just keep it chill and "ting" on!
In the News
International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) is an international awareness campaign held annually on June 23 by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES). INWED showcases the outstanding achievements of women engineers around the world and focuses attention on exciting career opportunities available to females in the industry.
AS celebrations get underway for International Women in Engineering Day (INWED), we caught up with the six chemical engineers who today were announced as winners of the Top 50 Women in Engineering, for their work on sustainability.
Harina Amer Hamzah, Andres Rivero Bracho and Lui Terry from Bristol Composites Institute had been selected to present their work at the annual STEM for Britain exhibition and poster competition. The prestigious event took place at the Houses of Parliament on 9 March 2020, during the British Science Wee
Improving hydrogen storage in the quest to reach ‘net zero’
Award-winning UK scientist Dr. Lui Terry discusses how his pioneering work on nanoconfinement could help advance the global transition to cleaner energy
Probing interactions of nanomaterials containing different pore dimensions and geometries with gases using neutron scattering
Improvements in catalytic activity in both liquid phase and gas phase reactions have been attributed to the enhanced molecular diffusion in the larger pores of the MOFs. The on-going INS measurements complemented by other characterisation techniques such as XRD, SEM and gas sorption will produce a complete picture of the material, and will be used to evaluate the results from the catalytic tests. Huan Doan presented this work at the European Conference on Neutron Scattering (ECNS2019) in St Petersburg thanks to a student travel grant from the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source.
'Molecular sponge' advancement in storing hydrogen
The research marks a major development in our understanding of efficient hydrogen storage. It was led by Dr Valeska Ting from our Department of Chemical Engineering in conjunction with researchers from Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and collaborators in the USA and Germany.
