Professor Chris Rayner Programme Manager MSc Chemical Process Research and Development

Professor Chris Rayner
Programme Manager
MSc Chemical Process Research and Development

I am a great believer in interdisciplinary research. This can take many guises, but for many years I have been interested in research at the Chemistry-Engineering interface. With the recent establishment of our unique Institute of Process Research and Development (iPRD) and the fantastic opportunities and facilities this offers, I am proud to be leading the iPRD teaching initiatives, which I believe provide a unique training in this vital area.

I am also very active in research, with sustainability of chemical processes being the core theme, and special interests in the chemistry of carbon dioxide and utilisation of natural and renewable materials.

I am Head of Organic Chemistry, and Director of two University spin out companies; DyeCat Ltd., which specialises in environmentally and consumer friendly coloration processes, and C-Capture Ltd., which is developing new materials for capturing carbon dioxide, thus avoiding its release into the atmosphere and helping to slow global warming. All these activities rely on close collaboration with colleagues from a range of different disciplines, something for which Leeds is particularly well suited.
