Professor Andrew Abbott

Professor of Physical Chemistry


Professor Andrew Abbott’s interests are firmly based around green chemistry, with a particular emphasis on material processing. Active in developing novel solvent systems with industrial applications such as metal deposition and dissolution, Professor Abbott also collaborates strongly with industry. 

Much of his work to date has been in the development of novel processes using ionic liquids. He holds eleven patents, five of which have received worldwide rights.

Professor Abbott is currently a partner in the Faraday Institution project ReLiB recycling lithium ion batteries where his research and work has been instrumental in a new process for delaminating battery materials with Birmingham University. This is currently being scaled up for use at battery manufacturing plants around the UK.
