Research interests

Within the Cormack Group at the University of Strathclyde, we are particularly interested in the synthesis and use of functional organic materials, especially materials based upon macromolecules, with a variety of end applications in mind (including high performance chemical separations, bioanalysis, environmental and forensic analysis, ion-exchange, metrology, films, coatings, proteomics and diagnostics). Typically, the materials are prepared using a broad-range of synthetic methodologies, including radical polymerisation, step-growth polymerisation, template-directed synthesis and solid-phase synthesis. The development and exploitation of molecularly imprinted polymers, microporous solids, functionalised polymer microspheres, branched polymers, and self-assembling systems are of special interest.

If you wish to join the Cormack Group as a postgraduate or postdoctoral researcher, and have your own external funding in place, then please contact Professor Cormack directly.

At the time of last updating of this section (6th January 2020) there were no open vacancies.
