Chemistry Nanoscience & materials

Interconnecting traditional organic, inorganic and physical chemistry, this research area has significant strengths in:

  • biomaterials and biodegradable polymers
  • functional conjugated and non-conjugated polymers
  • bionanotechnology
  • inorganic nanoparticles and their functionalisation
  • electronic and magnetic materials
  • hydrogen storage materials
  • solar cells
  • batteries
  • self-assembly and molecular devices

The Centre for Molecular Nanometrology is part of this theme and focuses on the understanding of plasmonic materials for enhanced optical spectroscopies and the creation of new approaches to bioanalysis, based mainly on functionalised nanoparticles and surface enhanced Raman scattering.
