Aaron Gamboa
•     Aaron is studying the use of asymmetric metal complexes as catalysts for the copolymerisation of CO2 with other biorenewable monomers to make highly oxygenated plastics such as polycarbonates. The resulting biodegradable materials will be assessed for their applications to replace traditional plastics in food packaging, electronic devices, and medical biomaterials.
•     Funded by Conacyt, Mexico, and supervised by Prof. Polly L Arnold (Chemistry, UoE).
Aline Devoille
•     Aline is taking a three month secondment from her PhD studies to investigate the trapping and reduction of CO2 by new supramolecular architectures that combine amines and redox actives metals.

•     Supervised by Dr Jason B Love (Chemistry, UoE).
Research Associate Dr. Andrei Gromov
•     Andrei is studying the functionalisation of nanostructured carbon materials for small-scale carbon capture from air.
•     Supervised by Prof. Eleanor Campbell (Chemistry, UoE) and Prof Stefano Brandani (Chemical Engineering, UoE).
