Biography

Robert Mokaya received his B.Sc. in Chemistry from the University of Nairobi in 1988 after which he spent a year working for Unilever in Kenya. He was awarded his Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge in 1992. In 1992 he was elected to a Research Fellowship at Trinity College, Cambridge and in 1996 was awarded an EPSRC Advanced Fellowship. He was appointed to a lectureship in Materials Chemistry at Nottingham in 2000, was promoted to Reader in Materials Chemistry in 2005, and to Professor of Materials Chemistry in 2008. He is a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award holder (2017-2022).

Current Research

The design, synthesis and characterisation of novel porous inorganic materials and the study of their structure-property relations is the focus of our research interests. The materials currently under investigation are those which may find use as solid state catalysts, adsorbents, molecular sieves and as hosts in the preparation of advanced composite materials. Of particular interest is the emerging field of mesoporous molecular sieves (MMS) prepared via the 'Liquid Crystal Templating' (LCT) mechanism in which supramolecular assemblies of surfactant serve as components of the template for the formation of solid inorganic framework.
