The UK Catalysis Hub -'Core'

Lead Research Organisation: Cardiff University
Department Name: Chemistry

Abstract

Catalysis is a core area of science that lies at the heart of the chemicals industry - an immensely successful and important part of the overall UK economy, where in recent years the UK output has totalled over £50B annually and is ranked 7th in the world. This position is being maintained in the face of immense competition worldwide. For the UK to sustain its leading position it is essential that innovation in research is maintained, to achieve which the UK Catalysis Hub was established in 2013; and has succeeded over the last four years in bringing together over 40 university groups for innovative and collaborative research programmes in this key area of contemporary science. The success of the Hub can be attributed to its inclusive and open ethos which has resulted in many groups joining its network since its foundation in 2013; to its strong emphasis on collaboration; and to its physical hub on the Harwell campus in close proximity to the Diamond synchrotron, ISIS neutron source and Central Laser Facility, whose successful exploitation for catalytic science has been a major feature of the recent science of the Hub.
The next phase of the Catalysis Hub will build on this success and while retaining the key features and structure of the current hub will extend its programmes both nationally and internationally. The core activities to which the present proposal relates include our coordinating activities, comprising our influential and well attended conference, workshop and training programmes, our growing outreach and dissemination work as well as the core management functions. The core catalysis laboratory facilities within the research complex will also be maintained and developed and two key generic scientific and technical developments will be undertaken concerning first sample environment and high throughput capabilities especially relating to facilities experimentation; and secondly to data management and analysis.
The core programme will coordinate the scientific themes of the Hub, which in the initial stages of the next phase will comprise:
- Optimising, predicting and designing new catalysts
- Water - energy nexus
- Catalysis for the Circular Economy and Sustainable Manufacturing
- Biocatalysis and biotransformations
The Hub structure is intrinsically multidisciplinary including extensive input from engineering as well as science disciplines and with strong interaction and cross-fertilisation between the different themes. The thematic structure will allow the Hub to cover the major areas of current catalytic science

Planned Impact

Phase 2 of the UK Catalysis Hub will have wide ranging benefits and impact on the academic community and on industrial and manufacturing sectors in the UK; it will also have broader economic, environmental and social impact. The chemical sector is a major component of UK industry, and includes global players such as GSK, Astra Zeneca, Pfizer, Johnson Matthey, BP and Unilever. Catalysis is at the heart of these industries and the underpinning fundamental science developed by the UK Cataysis Hub will be of key importance in the development of future technologies.

The impact on the academic community will be broad. The programme will promote further collaborations between leading groups in catalytic science, but will also have impact on other disciplines including biosciences, materials, medicine and computational science. By contributing to facilities development, the project will also benefit the broader user community.

Societal impact will follow from advances enabled by the research in sustainable manufacturing, leading to greener and cleaner processes and products with reduced environmental impact. Contributions will also be made to the provision of sustainable energy and reductions in energy demands of manufacturing sectors. Additional societal impact will follow from the role of the fundamental research undertaken by UK Catalysis Hub in developing the circular economy and enabling recycle and reuse of waste streams.

The UK economy will benefit from the role of the Hub in assisting innovation in catalysis manufacture. The large and successful chemical sector, including over 3200 companies and a dynamic SME component, faces intense international competition. The collaborations and interactions both within the Hub and between the Hub and Industry will promote economic impact, which will extend beyond the chemical sector to industries that rely on advances in materials and processes, including automotive, aerospace and electronics sectors. All letters of support across the Core and Science Themes 1, 2 and 3 have been attached to the Core proposal

Knowledge exchange will be vigorously promoted by the programme through greater integration between the participating research groups and their extensive networks of collaborations and with scientists and facilities on the Harwell campus. This exchange will lead to scientific advances not only in the development of state-of-the-art equipment but also in sustainable chemical processes.

The impact on recruitment will be substantial by the provision of trained research workers whose skills will be necessary for R&D programmes required for market innovation to occur.

The management and dissemination plans are designed to maximise impact. The Management Group of the Hub will monitor and together with the IAP and EAB will advise on impact, while the conferences and workshops will be aimed at the key beneficiaries.

The collaborating team has wide ranging experience in the dissemination of their science and the promotion of its impact to a wide range of stakeholders including the general public, schools, business and government. We will undertake industrial stakeholder engagement at the Hub as well as visiting the industrial sites. A strong outreach programme is planned which will develop the Hub researchers as well provide In order to inform the community in its broadest sense the importance and impact of catalysis.

Description This is one of four awards that have enabled the UK Catalysis Hub to be established: Within the core programme, we will undertake developments in generic scientific capabilities which will provide underpinning support for the entire Hub programme, for which we will employ two PDRAs who will be co-funded by Diamond Light Source and the ISIS neutron facility. Their work programmes described in greater detail below will relate first to the development of generic sample environment for experimental catalytic science on both facilities and second to the data processing, analysis and curation. The Catalysis Hub has developed strong relationships with the world leading facilities on the Harwell campus including Diamond, ISIS and the Central Laser Facility (CLF).The Catalysis Hub in association with Diamond has run a highly successful Block allocation Group (BAG). The hub has also developed a number of insitu analysis techniques including operando XAFS/DRIFTS techniques and ongoing projects include the development of combines SpaciFB-XAS techniques. A strong relationship with ISIS has focused on community engagement and advancements in INS and QUENS techniques the HUB and ISIS scientists are developing (quasi) insitu techniques using newutrons in catalysis . Researchers supported by the Hub (Beale, UCL) have developed techniques including Kerr gated Raman and Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM) for catalysis applications
Exploitation Route Outcomes of this award will become a valuable resource for the whole catalysis community - industrial and academic and the HUb is actively working with industry to take these outputs further

Description The Hub has coordinated and developed the UK Catalysis community; it has established strong and enduring interactions with UK industry; and it is now widely known and recognised internationally. Key to its success has been its inclusivity, its effective management structure and its physical hub, based in the Research Complex (RCaH) on the Harwell campus. Its network of forty-one university groups around the UK now includes the great majority of academic catalytic scientists, while its wide ranging scientific programme is increasingly integrating the different fields within catalytic science. Its physical centre at the Harwell campus has provided a focus for the community and has facilitated the application to catalytic science of the world-class neutron, synchrotron and laser facilities on the campus. Through its scientific programme and its wide ranging and vibrant programme of activities including conferences, specialised workshops and outreach activities, the Hub has energised a broad community of scientists and facilitated wide ranging collaboration through multidisciplinary and multi-institution projects. https://ukcatalysishub.co.uk/publications/ Scientific Programme and Structure The Harwell Hub The physical hub in the RCaH has been crucial to the success of the whole Hub project. It has provided first class facilities for research in catalytic science, including a suite of catalysis laboratories for the preparation and analysis for Hub research which not only supports the Design theme, based in the RCaH, but also act as a resource for the whole community. The laboratories have been used effectively by visiting scientists including those undertaking experimental work on the central facilities; and have been visited by groups across the UK, while promoting fruitful interactions with other groups in the RCAH and the Harwell campus more broadly. The Hub has supported early career researchers from eight institutions to collaborate with Hub scientists through the affiliate researcher scheme (eight early career researchers from eight institutions and PDRAS have been supported to collaborate with the Hub). In addition, it has housed a successful team of graduate students (currently thirteen) who have responded well to the scientific environment of the Harwell campus. The campus has also proved to be a very effective base for the Hub's community building and development activities; while the proximity of the RCaH to the central facilities on the campus has facilitated the growth of their use in catalytic science as summarised below. Exploitation of Facilities A key component of the work of the Hub, which has been coordinated by the Design theme, has been its strong relationships with the world leading facilities on the Harwell campus, including the Diamond Light Source, the ISIS neutron facility and more recently the Central Laser Facility (CLF); where work of the Hub team has led to the growing use and development of the facilities for catalytic science. Notable achievements include: • X-Ray spectroscopy in catalytic science; where the Catalysis Hub in association with Diamond has led a highly successful Block Allocation Group (BAG) on the Core XAFS beamline and has supported more than 20 research groups across ten institutions including new users, resulting in more than 32 publications. The hub has also developed a number of in situ analysis techniques including operando XAFS/DRIFTS technique, which has been widely used by the catalysis community. • Development of tomographic imaging: A novel and significant development using both DIAMOND and ESRF facilities which has allowed the imaging of real catalytic system in operando. • Growth in the application of neutron scattering techniques; especially neutron spectroscopy. Here our strong relationship with ISIS has focused on community engagement as well as scientific research through conference and workshops (e.g. neutrons for catalysis in November 2015) and has led to a large increase in the use of neutron techniques for catalysis. Particularly notable has been the rapid growth in the use inelastic neutron scattering (INS) for in situ spectroscopy and Quasi Elastic Neutron Scattering (QENS) and small angle scattering probing molecular transport, surface speciation and confined liquid structures for a range of catalytic systems. Exemplar studies have been highlighted in a recent special issue of PCCP on "Neutron scattering in catalysis and energy materials," (Phys Chem Phys 18 2016) which was edited by Hub scientists (Silverwood, Parker and Catlow). The Hub is also incentivising instrument upgrades and is the major driver for the proposed catalysis laboratory within ISIS. • Development of laser techniques in catalytic science, where McGregor (Sheffield) has led a Hub project on Optical tweezers for interrogation of catalysts and Beale, (RCaH, UCL) has developed techniques including Kerr gated Raman and Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM) for catalysis applications. The applications of Laser techniques for catalysis was disseminated to the community in a workshop organised in collaboration with the CLF (Lasers for catalysis in May 2016). Dissemination, Advocacy and Outreach The Hub has supported dissemination and interaction of the community through biannual conferences for the Hub network, which have led to innovation in catalytic science. The Hub has organised a number of external conferences including two Faraday Discussions and two Royal Society Discussion meetings which have promoted the interaction with the wider national and international community. In addition, the Hub has supported the development of an annual UK Catalysis Conference covering all aspects of catalytic science and engineering now in its 4th year with annual participation of over two hundred UK researchers from academia and industry. Outputs The Hub has been highly productive scientifically to date. Its five years of operation Hub science across the the bredth of catalysis over 250 outputs) across heterogeneous, homogeneous biocatalysis and engineering, The Hub is also leading on a book book (Modern developments in Catalysis volume 2 , Imperial College Press) which will be written by early career Hub scientists. Community Development The Hub has placed considerable emphasis on the development of a strong and active network for catalytic science in the UK and has contributed to the development of the field by promoting new collaborations and techniques. Much of this development has been achieved by its conferences and workshops and notable aspects include the following: • Fostering of new collaborations from community interaction - • Support for ECRs; where our regular conference series has allows interaction and liaison, especially for those new to the field or to the UK; and where our funding streams have assisted some ECRs in developing their programs. • Strengthening the technical base of UK catalysis; by introducing groups to new methods and approaches, especially those based on central facilities,
