Event details

Staff from chemistry present seminars of their own choice, reflecting the divergence of research being undertaken within chemistry.

Prof Phil Gale
From anion receptors to transporters.

Dr Geoff Hyett
Control of the microstructure of Zinc oxide thin films synthesized in a CVD process.

Recent work in our group has shown that it is possible to control the microstructure – the shape, size and orientation of the particles in a thin film - through the use of commonly available surfactants as structure directing agents. In this presentation I will discuss our preliminary results highlighting the range of different structures that can be generated using different additives, and consider the effect on the films properties using photocatalytic testing.
