Functional inorganic, materials and supramolecular chemistry

Our research group examines the synthesis of new materials and functional molecules that contribute to innovation and technology.

Part of Chemistry

About

We research the synthesis of functional inorganic, solid-state and supramolecular materials and assemblies. 

Through our work, we take on challenges in:

  • energy
  • sustainability
  • healthcare
  • diagnostics
  • deposition of nanostructured materials

All our research is underpinned by a background in structure determination and characterisation. We are building sold-state structural libraries to investigate the link between molecular modifications and crystal structure electron density distribution and physical properties.

We use a combination of crystallographic, physical measurement, statistical and computational approaches.

Our 3 main fields are:

  • functional inorganic chemistry
  • materials chemistry
  • supramolecular chemistry
