Group of Heterogeneous Catalysis and Advanced Materials together with the Department of Physical and Macromolecular Chemistry invite you for a lecture Catalysts in Action by Dr. Paul Diddams, Technology Director of Oil and Gas, Johnson Matthey.
Paul Diddams completed his PhD in Physical Chemistry at the University of Cambridge in 1985. During his carrier he worked as R&D specialist and consultant for many companies incl. Johnson Matthey, Total, BP, Intercat Inc., and Grace. Currently, Paul is a Technology Director of Oil and Gas at Johnson Matthey. In January, 2023 Paul will become our colleague here at the Faculty of Science. Paul will be involved in design and optimization of catalysts, evaluation of catalytic data in the group of Heterogeneous Catalysis and Advanced Materials. Paul is top-tier industrial specialist in application of zeolites, with focus on Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) units. He was senior refining consultant for the FCC units all over the World.
The lecture will take place in the hall CH2, Faculty of Science, Hlavova 8, Praha 2.
The lecture complements the courses “Principles of Catalysis” and “Chemical Principles of Industrial Processes”.
