Dr. Antony Vamvakeros will present a webinar on X-ray diffraction computed tomography July 21

Synchrotron X-ray diffraction computed tomography (XRD-CT) is a marriage between powder diffraction and computed tomography using a “pencil” beam approach. The spatially-resolved signals obtained with XRD-CT can reveal information that would otherwise be lost in bulk measurements, which opens up new possibilities in functional material characterization. In this webinar, our research scientist Dr. Antony Vamvakeros […]

Interview with The Interreg Baltic Sea Region project CAROTS

We have been interviewed by the Interreg Baltic Sea Region project CAROTS as one of their intermediary service providers. CAROTS is all about establishing a new type of private or public-private company: Commercial Analytical Research Organisations (CAROs). CAROs act as intermediary service providers between scientists as well as research facilities and industry. They bridge the world […]

New paper on the stability of Na-Mn-W/SiO2 catalyst for the OCM has now been accepted at the Faraday Discussions!

A new paper by our former PhD student Dorota Matras and partners from MEMERE project has been accepted in the Faraday Discussions. In this study, we investigate the effect of thermal treatment/calcination on the stability and activity of a Na-Mn-W/SiO2 catalyst for the oxidative coupling of methane reaction. The catalyst performance and characterisation measurements suggest […]
