Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

The primary aim of Paul Anderson’s research is the discovery, characterisation and development of new inorganic materials, many of which have potential applications related to energy.

Important research areas include the synthesis of new potential hydrogen storage materials, for use either in safe hydrogen delivery systems or reversible hydrogen stores, and materials also of interest as lithium ion conductors for future use in lithium batteries. Projects in this area are available within the School of Chemistry, or as part of the interdisciplinary RCUK Doctoral Training Centre in Hydrogen and Fuel Cells. Other projects include the use of framework materials for the controlled production of nanoparticles and nanowires; or as molecular scaffolding for the assembly of nanostructured materials with potential for gas (H2, CO2) capture and storage; and the synthesis and properties of inorganic electrides and alkalide anions in zeolites.
