Prof. Peter Licence
organic chemist by training, Licence offers experience
in the design and preparation of ultra-high purity
functionalised ionic liquids that are bespoke for a
specific task. The key driver that underpins much of
Licence’s research is the development of an in-depth
knowledge of interactions and processes at interfaces
and discontinuities. Interfaces are crucial regions in
most processes spanning extraction, catalysis and small
Licence is Adjunct Professor in Chemistry at Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia, Director of the recently awarded EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Chemistry (CDT-SusChem) and Co-I of the BBSRC/EPSRC Multidisciplinary Synthetic Biology Research Centre (SBRC-Nottingham).
