Course summary

We study self-assembled, self-organised and nanoscale materials, often based on renewable resources, and apply these materials in next-generation technologies – from opto-electronics to tissue engineering.

Molecular-scale building blocks are produced using simple synthetic methods or extracted from bio-waste and programmed to form soft nanoscale materials by non-covalent interactions ‘from the bottom up’, directing the resulting materials behaviour. This gives rise to highly tunable, multi-component, multi-functional soft materials such as liquid crystals, micelles, vesicles, gels, ionic liquids, and nanoparticles, with wide-ranging real-world applications.

Collaboration

In this multidisciplinary research area we collaborate with colleagues from the Departments of Biology and Physics, which supports the translation of fundamental materials chemistry into a variety of applications.
