About Dr Phathutshedzo Rodney Khangale

Academic Profile
Dr Khangale is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering Technology. He joined the Department in 2016 as an Assistant Lecturer. He hold a PhD qualification in Chemical Engineering. His research interests are in heterogeneous catalysis for alternative fuel (Fischer-Tropsch, CO2 hydrogenation) and methanol synthesis

Research Interests

Heterogeneous Catalysis, CO2 hydrogenation to transportation fuels ,Methanol synthesis , Fischer–Tropsch synthesis

Dr Khangale’s research focuses on heterogeneous catalysis for alternative fuel, in particular Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. Fischer-Tropsch synthesis is a process of producing low-sulphur fuel from a mixture of CO and H2 (commonly known as syngas). His current research is looking at the hydrogenation of CO2 to produce liquid fuel (modified Fischer-Tropsch process) as opposed to CO which is used in a traditional Fischer-Tropsch process.
