Award for Carmine D'Agostino

Carmine D'Agostino

Carmine D'Agostino has won the award for best UK poster at the Japan-UK Symposium: Catalysis for a Sustainable World.

The conference was organized by the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Chemical Society of Japan and was held on the 15th and 16th of July, 2010, at the Royal Society of Chemistry, Burlington House, London. The Conference was held to sign a cooperation agreement between Japan and the UK on sustainable chemistry. There was a poster presentation session on both days and the best UK poster and the best Japan poster were awarded a prize. Carmine's prize was a certificate from the Royal Society of Chemistry and a book on Green Chemistry.

The title of his poster was In-situ 13C DEPT NMR spectroscopic studies of aerobic oxidation of benzyl alcohol over heterogeneous Pd/Al2O3 catalyst.

The work focuses on using NMR techniques to study heterogeneous catalytic reactions with a non-invasive approach and from a more industrial-related point of view. The future work will focus on using this technique to investigate catalytic systems in the field of Sustainable Chemistry.

Carmine D'Agostino is supervised by Prof Lynn Gladden and Dr Mick Mantle and is a member of the Magnetic Resonance and Catalysis research groups.
