collaboration with Fujifilm and Dr Reid, a CPACT feasibility study was
conducted in collaboration between Johnson Matthey to investigate the use of the
same computer vision kinetics platform for the monitoring of catalytic
reactions. It was shown that important
catalytic phenomena, including base-mediated activation, and aqueous catalyst
deactivation could be monitored by the system. These analyses provided strong
proof-of-concept for real-time online and non-invasive analysis of diverse
processes powered by computer vision.
The output from the study were used as part of Dr Reid’s presentation on
this topic during two CPACT webinars and at the CPACT Research Day on October
These combined efforts have led
to further collaboration between Dr Marc Reid’s research group and multiple
industrial and academic partners, investigating the broader use of camera
kinetics both in the lab and on plant. The work is also contributing to
fellowship bids led by Dr Reid.
