Andrei Khlobystov, Professor of Nanomaterials and Director of the nmRC, has been awarded an Established Career EPSRC Fellowship "ChemTEM: Triggering, Controlling and Imaging Chemical Reactions at the Single-Molecule Level by Electron Beam". The principles and methodology of ChemTEM developed in this project have the potential to become an imaging and analytical tool for molecular reactions, complementing and bolstering current spectroscopy, diffraction and SPM methods. ChemTEM will image reaction pathways in direct space at the single-molecule level and will enable the elucidation of reaction mechanisms of important chemical processes, such as C-C bond formation and dissociation, dehydrogenation and polycondensation reactions, leading to the improved preparative synthesis of high-value materials and the design of alternative catalysts. In addition, ChemTEM has great potential for the discovery of entirely new types of chemical reactions that can transform not only the way we study molecules but also launch a new wave of research in synthetic chemistry, which currently relies on a relatively small number of reaction types.
