This Account is to commemorate the 70th birthday of Graham Hutchings and his diverse and distinguished career in catalysis, working in industry and academia. The scope of his work is wide ranging, and he has contributed to many areas of catalysis and has been a pioneer in several of them. Notable contributions to the discipline include novel methods of catalyst preparation for both metal oxides and supported nanoparticles, selective oxidation, acetylene hydrochlorination, and direct hydrogen peroxide synthesis, and he has played a central role in the discovery, application, and understanding of gold-based catalysts. The aim of this article is to provide an outline of his career and highlight some of the contributions he has made to the field of catalysis. Successfully supervising over 190 Ph.D. students, working directly with more than 90 postdoctoral researchers, and collaborating widely nationally and internationally, his work has influenced many in the discipline of heterogeneous catalysis.

Abstract

This Account is to commemorate the 70th birthday of Graham Hutchings and his diverse and distinguished career in catalysis, working in industry and academia. The scope of his work is wide ranging, and he has contributed to many areas of catalysis and has been a pioneer in several of them. Notable contributions to the discipline include novel methods of catalyst preparation for both metal oxides and supported nanoparticles, selective oxidation, acetylene hydrochlorination, and direct hydrogen peroxide synthesis, and he has played a central role in the discovery, application, and understanding of gold-based catalysts. The aim of this article is to provide an outline of his career and highlight some of the contributions he has made to the field of catalysis. Successfully supervising over 190 Ph.D. students, working directly with more than 90 postdoctoral researchers, and collaborating widely nationally and internationally, his work has influenced many in the discipline of heterogeneous catalysis.
