Mixed-Metal Clusters for Catalysis and Optical Applications

    Project Details

    Description

    Australia has amongst the worlds largest reserves of certain critical metals used in the creation of chemicals in the medical and agricultural industries. However, we currently import many of these chemicals at high cost and with related supply risks. This project seeks to develop new chemicals by combining particular metals that are found naturally in Australia. It will develop these technologies at home in Australia to boost commercial gain by domestic chemical manufacturers who can add value to our natural resources. These new chemicals will speed up chemical reactions, resulting in faster development times of medicines and agricultural chemicals. Given Australias unique reserves of these strategic metals, our new technologies will support Australian chemical manufacturers to develop their commercial potential, and in turn enable home-grown industries to provide a lower-cost and local supply of key materials needed in our modern economy.
