9 August 2018

Professor Michelle Coote from the ANU Research School of Chemistry is part of a team that has been shortlisted for the UNSW Eureka Prize for Scientific Research.

The team from ANU and Curtin University is developing efficient ways to catalyse reactions and has shown that electric fields can be used to manipulate chemical reactions. This breakthrough may enable greener and safer methods for fabricating materials, from drugs to plastics.
