Saleh, Martins, Michael, Max, Moritz

Dr Moritz F. Kuehnel ORCID iD icon


Moritz studied Chemistry at Freie Universität Berlin and obtained his PhD under the supervision of Dieter Lentz, developing homogeneous catalysts for selective C-F bond activation (link to PhD thesis). This synthetic work covered a broad range of inorganic chemistry and he received aditional training in all spects of fluorine chemistry within the DFG Doctoral Training Centre ‘Fluorine as a Key Element‘. After a short stay with Thomas Braun at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, he joined Erwin Reisner’s lab in Cambridge to develop molecular electrocatalysts for CO2 reduction within the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Sustainable Syngas Chemistry (full CV).

Martins Osaigbovo Omorogie, PhD

Martins is a visiting academic from Redeemer’s University, Nigeria on an Association of Commonwealth Universities Blue Charter Fellowship. He is currently working on new photocatalysts for solar-driven plastics degradation.

Michael Allan

Michael is a 1st year PhD student on an EPSRC studentship. He obtained his undergraduate degree from University of Glasgow. His PhD focuses on exploring novel reaction media for photocatalytic fuel production.

Max Kutter

Max is a Erasmus+ fellow from Freie Univerität Berlin studying for an MChem. He obtained his BSc under the supervision of Dieter Lentz at Freie Univerität Berlin working on the synthesis of fluorinated buckybowls. His current research focuses on supramolecular immobilisation of redox-active molecules.

Saleh Alofi

Saleh is studying for an MChem by research funded by a scholarship from Taibah University. He received his undergraduate degree from Taibah University (Medina) and studied at University of Guelph (Canada). Saleh develops hybrid photocatalysts for solar-driven waste valorisation.
