Safer, scalable, and modifiable polymer-based lipid nanocapsules for drug delivery

Lipid nanocapsules (LNCs) are very interesting nanoformulations as they can be made by phase inversion technique (PIT), a scalable method with predictable particle size at the beginning of the preparation process. Read more

Electrically conductive porous coordination polymers and metal-organic frameworks for energy storage

Porous coordination polymers (PCPs) and metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are intrinsically porous extended solids formed by coordination bonding between organic ligands and geometry-directing metal ion clusters. Read more

Tailoring plasma chemistry of cold atmospheric-pressure plasmas

Plasma technologies already form a key part of many of today’s multi-billion pound industries such as the nanoscale fabrication of microprocessors, energy efficient lighting, production of solar cells and the deposition of advanced functional coatings. Read more

Integral valorisation of waste biomass to obtain bioactive compounds and furans

  Research Group: Catalysis and Porous Materials
The project. The biorefinery concept has been gaining momentum in the last years as many countries have adopted policies and national strategies to steer towards a biobased economy. Read more

Investigating the impact of urban greening on urban air quality

Poor air quality is the biggest environmental factor contributing to premature mortality globally. As the Earth’s population has grown, the number of people living in urban areas has increased rapidly from 751 million in 1950 to 4.2 billion in 2018. Read more

Development of sustainable analytical tools for monitoring contaminants in the environment.

The analysis of contaminants in the different environmental compartments requires extensive sample treatment methods to capture and purify trace levels of targeted substances in relatively complex media. Read more

Exploring the catalytic capabilities of biogenic nanoparticles

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Certain bacteria, under certain conditions, synthesise metal nanoparticles when presented with solutions and leachates. These biogenic nanoparticles make excellent catalysts, with some examples even out-performing similar chemically derived nanoparticles under green chemistry conditions. Read more
