Personal profile


In 2018 Dr Leila Moura was awarded the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE) Excellence Award in Fluid Separations for her PhD thesis "Ionic liquids for the separation of gaseous hydrocarbons".

Research Statement

The Moura's group focus is in the development of Liquid Engineering for Gas Separation.

This project aims to overcome the energy and engineering costs associated with the isolation of ethylene and propylene, chemical starting materials for the high-demand materials, from natural gas. This will be achieved by developing new absorbents to selectively capture and release these gases from mixtures.

Research Interests

My core research targets energy reduction and process improvements. I am interested in the development, evaluation and application of new materials to reduce the environmental and energy impact of current operations, specifically in gas-liquid and liquid-liquid separations.
