Brief description Spinning Disc Reactor technology is new to Australia and will have wide ranging applications in nano-technology and in developing benign industrial chemical processes with smaller footprint and significantly reduced capital outlay. The cutting edge research will foster collaboration with industry, and lead to establishing new industries in device technology, smart materials, health care products, catalysis and energy storage, through exploiting commercial opportunities. The project will provide excellent research training in a range of scientific skills and in professional development, and will involve overseas PhD exchange programs. The exciting research incorporating benign metrics will enhance public opinion towards science.
