Profile Information

This interdisciplinary group has interests in various areas of materials chemistry including the study of ordered and amorphous porous solids and functionalised solids, for application in catalysis and absorption, surface science, synthesis and electrical and magnetic characterisation of mixed metal oxides, the synthesis and characterisation of new transition metal complexes of relevance to light emitting and devices and solar cells and the computational modelling of solid-state and molecular materials. The centres activities include:

  • Photochromic and electrochromic materials chemistry
  • Dye-sensitised photovoltaics and light emitting materials
  • Optical and electron transfer materials
  • Electronic solid state materials
  • Computational materials modelling
  • Advanced thermal methods for materials synthesis and characterisation
  • Inorganic biomaterials
  • Biosensors
