Mr Hugo Jungius is a PhD student in the Advanced Composite Materials Facility in the Chemistry department, University of Southampton.

Hugo graduated with a MChem at Southampton University in 2012. As part of his master’s degree, he worked at Ilika Technologies on a number of projects related to the high-throughput synthesis and screening of various Li battery materials. He also completed a research project investigating various catalytic compounds for use in direct alcohol fuel cells. After working for Ilika Technologies, Hugo started a PhD with the Advanced Composite Materials Laboratory, investigating the bifunctional effects in oxide supported metal catalysts for oxidation reactions.

Hugo’s PhD research focuses on the preparation of supported particle catalysts in vacuum systems for fuel cell applications, as well as the characterisation of such materials, most prominently electrochemically. He is currently working on investigating the increased reactivity of gold supported titania particles towards carbon monoxide oxidation in the aqueous environment.

Research interests


- Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) methods (Electron Beam Evaporation, Knudsen Heating cells).

- Measurement and testing of supported particles thin film materials.

- X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) testing of supported particle systems.

- Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy (STM) of supported particle systems.
