Poster prize for Qingyuan Zheng

last modified May 25, 2018 12:27 PM

Congratulations to Qingyuan Zheng who was awarded a best poster prize at the 25th International Conference on Chemical Reaction Engineering (ISCRE25) "Engineering the Chemical Transformation by Bridging Science and Technology".

The symposium took place on 20-23 May 2018, in Florence, Italy.

Dr Zheng is a Research Associate at the Magnetic Resonance Research Centre and his poster presented a magnetic resonance study on the water condensation in a wax-saturated porous silica under conditions relevant to Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. This work shows water condenses in wax-saturated pores and displaces wax from the pore surface. This behaviour of water can significantly influence the performance of a Fischer-Tropsch catalyst.
