Dr Vladimir Zholobenko, Lennard-Jones Laboratories, has acquired a CEM microwave reaction system MARS-6.

This system will be utilised at Keele to enhance research in the area of nano-structured catalytic materials, which should provide a new insight in the formation mechanism of nano-materials and a better understanding of their structure and functionality.

The instrumentation can also be used for the digestion and analysis of a wide range of solid samples for environmental and biomedical applications.

The funding for this equipment, £14,000, came from his long-standing collaboration with industrial partners.
