Organic, inorganic, and physical and computational chemistry underpins our nanotechnology and materials chemistry research.

This research theme draws together expertise in synthesis (including self-assembly), characterisation (including spectroscopy, colloid and surface science) and computational modelling, and applications (optoelectronics, clean energy generation and storage, separation technologies, biomaterials, nanomedicine and molecular recognition) of organic, inorganic and composite materials, from small molecules to macromolecular structures including polymers, dendrimers, frameworks, gels and nano-porous structures.

Theme leader: Professor Paul Burn
