A central catalyst with a better chain growth control capability will be designed and developed in addition to a monomer interaction with the catalyst and its mechanism will be studied.
In 2013, KOPRC was expanded to include other universities beside Oxford University, such as Cambridge University, Imperial College, and Cardiff University. KACST has supported five research projects for this expansion and allowed more students to involve as follow:
- Crude Oil Conversion to High Value Chemical.
- Vapor Phases Synthesis of Propylene Oxide.
- New Generation of High-Performance Solid Acid Catalysts.
- Highly Efficient Nano-particulate Au Catalysts and Size-induced Metal-Insulator Transition.
Nanostructured Catalysts for Direct Selective Oxidation of Methane and Light Hydrocarbons to Oxygenate.
