Who We Are

History of the Catalysis Society of Australia

You may be aware that there has existed a catalysis society that historically was chaired by David Trimm, Noel Cant and Thomas Maschmeyer.  Michael Stockenhuber from the University of Newcastle the current president, Thomas Maschmeyer and Danielle Kennedy vice presidents and Tony Masters the treasurer.

Our vision is to grow the Catalysis Society of Australia into a vibrant interdisciplinary network for researchers involved in all fields of catalysis. In particular we would like to support the development of early career scientists and engineers to undertake research in this field.

The formal aims of the Society are, for the benefit of the public, to advance the knowledge and application of catalysis in Australia.

Its principle mission is to further education in the study of catalysis, including the technology and application thereof in the areas of chemistry, biochemistry, physics, chemical and biochemical engineering and related branches of science and engineering.
