Research Project: Synthesis and characterization of a band gap engineered photocatalyst for photocatalytic oxidation of environmental pollutants
Supervisors: Dominik Weiss (Imperial), Andreas Kafizas (Imperial), Camille Petit (Imperial)
Hany graduated from the Faculty of Science at Alexandria University with a BSc and MSc in Chemistry. His MSc was in physical and surface chemistry (adsorption modelling). Hany is interested in the synthesis and characterisation of a band gap engineered photocatalysts which can be applied in visible light for photocatalytic oxidation of environmental pollutants for potential water treatment. He intends to use a full range characterisation techniques including XPS, XRD, SEM, XRF, FTIR, DMA, TEM, BET to explore low-cost methods for analysing pollutants and enable a physical modelling of the results.
