Rapid depletion of fossil resources and environmental issues associated with their extraction and use demand the development of materials and processes to derive energy and chemicals from sustainable resources in an environmentally benign way. Biomass and water are potential renewable energy resources, which are abundantly available and can be utilized to derive fuels, chemicals and materials. Our research group focuses on the designing of heterogeneous catalysts for biomass conversion, water splitting and environmental catalysis (reduction of NOx and CO2 ).

Short bio. of Dr Zaheer:

Dr Zaheer is a Charles-Wallace Visiting Fellow in the Department of Chemistry. He has been working as an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) since January 2014. Dr. Zaheer teaches Analytical Chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry at the SBA School of Science and Engineering. His research interests center on the designing of catalysts for biomass conversion, water electrolysis, methane oxidation and reduction of NOx/CO2. Particulate matter, its chemical composition and source apportionment is the latest addition to his research interests.

This talk is part of the Centre for Atmospheric Science seminars, Chemistry Dept. series.
