High Throughput Nanoceramics Discovery [EPSRC Reference: EP/D038499/1]
The current advancement of technology very much depends upon the discovery of new inorganic materials. In particular, when inorganic particles are very small, typically made up of a few hundred atoms (called nanomaterials), they can have unusual and exciting properties. The discovery of such nanomaterials is very much hampered by our inability to make these materials fast enough and then to be able to test them adequately for their properties. This large EPSRC funded consortium project is developing a new, faster and automated way of making (using CHFS technology) and discovering inorganic nanomaterials that can absorb sunlight (as an free energy source), and use this energy to split water into its constituents, hydrogen and oxygen (in a process known as photocatalysis). The hydrogen can then be used for powering cars or devices of the future.
