Research Description

Sarah's research is focused on the kinetics of silver catalyzed propylene epoxidation using molecular oxygen as the oxidant. Propylene epoxidation is a large scale industrial chemical that is produced using a variety of oxidants and less than ideal conditions. The goal of Sarah's work is to understand the kinetics of propylene epoxidation under industrially relevant conditions in order to understand how to improve the system and enhance the possibility for implementation of a greener industrial process.
