PhD projects

The main theme of Bushra Al-Duri’s research is green chemistry in supercritical fluids. This includes:

Hydrothermal processing research in supercritical water for environmental and waste minimisation studies. The aim is to use supercritical water chemistry and engineering to conduct investigations that address commercial-scale problems and existing challenges

Improvement of reaction kinetics using supercritical fluid reaction media to eliminate undesired side reactions (such as coking)

Isolation and purification of high value minority lipids from plants and edible oil refinery streams using supercritical CO2

Immobilised enzyme biocatalyses for oleochemical reactions (modification of oils and triglycerides)

Adsorption studies for various solid/liquid contact applications namely wastewater treatment, CO2 sequestration and immobilisation studies
