Breaking the Chains: New tricks for old plastics
With the growing problem around plastics pollution, Professor Andrew Dove will discuss how his research is shaping the future of recycling and reusing old plastics to offer a solution to the global plastics pollution crisis and create new products, such as life-changing medical devices.
Andrew Dove is a Professor of Chemistry. In September 2017, Andrew joined the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham as Professor of Chemistry. He leads the Dove Research Group, a multinational collection of vibrant and dynamic researchers that are focussed on challenges in polymer and materials science. Part of Andrew's research focuses on the development of new (organo)catalytic methodologies to both make new polymers and degrade waste plastics into useful higher value products.
