Why is it important?

It is important because it opens up the study of a host of interesting materials in the convenience of a University laboratory; such materials include amorphous catalysts, battery materials and liquid samples.


This is the culmination of a nearly 3 years work and my first PhD student - the methodologies developed have opened up a large and exciting area of personal research.
